After celebrating its 30th Anniversary with a successful year on and off the track, Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green MX is looking to continue its rich tradition of developing talent while collecting championships across the nation. Though everyone who rides a Kawasaki product is a member of Team Green, every year a handful of talented young riders are selected to represent the brand at amateur motocross events nationally.

In 2012, there will be 25 riders flying Team Green graphics on their Kawasaki KX(TM) models. With a wide variety of ages and classes covered, Team Green is represented in 11 classes ranging from 65cc (7-9) to the highest levels in the Vet classes. With four new riders on the team and 21 returning from last season, Team Green is poised to collect numerous championships in the upcoming race season.

Says Team Green Supervisor Ryan Holliday, “We have a strong team of riders set for the 2012 season. Everyone is healthy and ready to go so we’re looking forward to another great year of racing. Starting at Mini-O’s, all of our riders will be on 2012 bikes, from KX(TM)65s to KX(TM)450Fs. It will be cool to showcase the new bikes at the first event of the season.”

The 2012 Team Green roster is stacked deep with talent, boasting 25 riders who have accumulated a total of 45 Loretta Lynn’s championships. Even for this talented group of individuals, with each new season comes a new set of challenges. As new riders join the Team Green ranks, current team members continue moving up in their respective classes as their racing careers progress.

“It’s interesting to see how the athletes transition between classes,” continued Holliday. “Our new riders this year include Carson Mumford, Sean Cantrell, and Garrett Marchbanks. They are all young riders who did very well last season and I thought would make great additions to the team. We continue to build Team Green from the ground up by creating long-lasting relationships with young riders and hope we can help carry them through the rest of their careers.”

The Team Green amateur motocross season begins at the Mini Winter Olympics in Gainesville, Fla., and will culminate at the AMA Amateur National Championships held annually at Loretta Lynn’s Dude Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. Since the team has not raced an amateur national event since Loretta Lynn’s last August, they are excited to get to Florida so they get the 2012 season under way.
