Craig Anderson – "We've done a lot more testing this year than last so I'm feeling 100% ready for the opening round. The set up on the new CRF450 is excellent, and my physical training has been awesome lately. I can't wait. I'm really motivated and keen to get it done!"

Cody Cooper – "I'm ready to go for sure. My momentum got stronger and stronger with each round last year, and getting some better results in Supercross this year was a boost as well. I plan to come out strong, to get those pole positions again, but to win more races too."

Kade Mosig: "I finished inside the top 10 last year in Lites, and know I can do the same in the Open class. Racing the bigger bike in the Supercross titles earlier this year gave me some great experience and I'm very comfortable on the bike now."

Pip Harrison (Team Manager) – "We have been getting some of our best lap times ever in testing which is really inspiring for everyone. We've also gone to a lot more tracks in preparation. No Fear Honda and Ando are the defending champions so, of course, we are all feeling the pressure already. But we are in a better position for the start of a season than I think we've ever been before."
