Triumph Motorcycles has announced they will enter the 2024 season of the SuperMotocross World Championship. Triumph says they are committed to developing a championship winning team. Triumph has begun building a competitive motocross bike and has brought on Ricky Carmichael to help.
Triumph will field the 250cc 4-stroke motocross bike in 2024 and a 450cc variant in 2025. Motorcycle hall of fame inductee Dave Arnold has joined the team as lead chassis engineer and Dudley Cramond has been hired as lead powertrain engineer. Triumph will also compete in the FIM Motocross World Championship. Bobby Hewitt will lead the team.
“It is great to take this next step in announcing our US Triumph Racing Team. Bobby’s [Hewitt] success in our sport as a championship team owner speaks for itself. The team he has assembled is already working with the factory in Hinckley during these final stages of development. They are some of the best people to have worked in our paddock and this shows the level of commitment, across the board, in this effort to compete for the SMX World Championship. I look forward to working with Bobby and the entire team when we go racing in 2024,” said Ricky Carmichael.
