INTERVIEW OF THE WEEK: JEREMY ALBRECHT

Forget the embroidered Yamaha logo on Jeremy Albrecht’s shirt (this photo was taken a year ago). It’s full steam head with JGRMX and Suzuki. Aside from Ken Roczen’s switch to HRC Honda, the biggest offseason news has been JGRMX’s move from Yamaha support to Suzuki equipment for 2017. Since bursting onto the scene in 2008, the Huntersville, North Carolina-based race operation has ridden under blue support. However, the trio of Justin Barcia, Weston Peick and Phil Nicoletti are now flying the yellow flag. It’s a good move for JGRMX, as Team Manager Jeremy Albrecht explains. I couldn’t agree more. Expect big things from JGRMX this coming season. I sat down with Albrecht to discuss the transition to Suzuki, along with several other pressing matters involving the team, riders and future of JGRMX.

Running third from the first lap, an early tussle first with Tom Sykes and then Xavi Fores was soon put to rest as he confidently got into a smooth rhythm. Picking up the pace as he broke the chasing pack and headed for second he was untimely stopped by the red flag, as a competitor’s machine left oil on the track. A clean-up operation and quick restart procedure was engaged shortly after and the race was...

Photo: Debbi Tamietti No matter how popular the REM Glen Helen motocross races are, you can’t avoid the fact that they are just local races.
