GARRETT MARCHBANKS SIGNS A DEAL WITH CLUBMX TEAM FOR 2021 SEASON
Longtime Team Green Kawasaki rider and current Monster Energy | Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Garrett Marchbanks took to Instagram to announce his plans for next season.
After growing pains and injury woes hindered his results throughout his first couple of years as a pro, Marchbanks began to show massive signs of improvements in 2020, most notably with a Main Event win at Daytona Supercross in March. Marchbanks was showing signs of progression in his sophomore Supercross season but an unfortunate season-ending crash at Salt Lake City ended his season a little bit earlier and subsequently forced him out of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. In addition to his win at Daytona, Marchbanks also had some success in his rookie year of Monster Energy Supercross with the team, scoring a memorable 2nd place finish at the mudfest in San Diego, propelling him to 10th place in the points standings. Despite the injury in Salt Lake City this season, the Utah native still managed to finish 4th overall in the 250SX East standings, and it appeared as though he would have a lot of momentum with the Pro Circuit Kawasaki squad heading into the new season.
It turns out that’s not going to be the case as Marchbanks has penned a deal with the ClubMX that will see him through the 2021 season. He spent a lot of his time throughout amateurs riding and training at the South of the Border training facility nearby, so it will most likely be a pretty smooth transition for the nineteen-year-old. Here’s the announcement in his own words:
“As some of you may know these past 4 months I was really struggling on figuring out what my next move was going to be for the upcoming season, until I got the news that @clubmx wanted to help me out. Hearing what they had to say and offer was more than what I could ever ask for and I can’t thank the whole crew enough for giving me the opportunity and support to continue my racing in 2021. I’m beyond grateful and I’ll see you guys at the races!!👍🏻”
