Monster Energy Kawasaki’s title sponsor, Monster Energy, was also unveiled as the new naming rights sponsor for the 2012 series.
When questioned during the press conference about racing for his 5th consecutive title in 2012, Marmont said, “Every Championship is tough. In 2008, it felt like I was kind of given that one, every Championship I’ve really had to work for and I feel that this year is going to be as tough as every other year. With Ben coming over and Brad and Billy, the depth of the field , you know you don’t have to be told about it, we’re all true motocross fans, we all know how quick and fast those guys are.”
Every rider is going to have their good days and bad days and it’s going to be tough, at the end of the day you just have to be prepared. I know the team’s doing everything we can at the moment. We have some new sponsors on board and everyone’s really excited. It’s a new challenge for me and I’m looking forward to it so bring it on.”
Monster Energy Kawasaki riders Jay Marmont, Billy Mackenzie and Kade Mosig do battle at the first round of the 2012 Monster Energy MX Nationals at Conondale, QLD on April 1.
