EL CAJON, Calif. – Thor MX welcomes JGRMX/Toyota/Yamaha rider Josh Grant to its impressive 2013 line-up. Grant brings nearly a decade of experience to the Thor MX roster, highlighted by one victory apiece in AMA Supercross and AMA Motocross, in addition to a gold and bronze medal from the Summer X Games.
“It’s great that I was able to team up with Thor this year,” said Grant. “I’ve respected their brand for a long time and I’m really looking forward to building our relationship in 2013.”
Along with his previous accomplishments, Grant overcame injury early this past supercross season to finish on the podium in New Orleans. He also collected an overall podium result at Steel City Raceway during the summer’s outdoor nationals on his way to a sixth-place finish in the 450 class standings.
“We are very happy to bring Josh on board,” said Jim Gallager, Design Director at Thor MX. “With his move back to Yamaha, he seems more confident than ever to make his mark on the 450 class and we are excited to be a part of it.”
Grant will make his Thor MX debut at this weekend’s Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 20.For all the latest from Thor, be sure to visit the NEW thormx.com, Thor on Facebook and follow @ThorMXOfficial on Twitter.
