HISTORY

Who would have through the North Queensland region around Cairns would produce so much riding talent that you know see on display at the MX Nationals. Todd Waters, Wilson Todd, Caleb Ward, Mitch Evans are all names from that region, as well as former riders like Wade Hunter. Well, you can now add Richie Evans to that list as he climbs the ladder of Australian motocross.

Richie and his younger brother Mitch hail from just north of Cairns and both have been recognised as talented riders from a young age. The dedication and commitment for a working-class family to travel the country for the sport of their sons cannot be under-estimated and both Evans boys are now starting to reap the rewards.

As a complete privateer racer in 2017, Evans ran ninth in the MX2 championship and even that came after missing the final two rounds of the championship after breaking a wrist at a local race. Now with the support of a professional race team, Evans has committed himself to full time racing in 2018 and has moved down to Brisbane to work closely with the team and train with other riders.

What you see in Evans is a rider who just loves racing. He gives 100% every time he hits the track and always puts his heart and soul into every lap. Watch him improve as the year goes on as we expect Evans to be the big improver of 2018.
