Twenty-two-year-old Noah Ferguson has officially joined Factory Honda for the upcoming 2024 Australian MX2 and SX2 Championships. Despite his impressive performance as the 4th placed contender in the 2023 championship, Noah faced setbacks due to injuries after securing a 1st place qualifier at the season opener. Notably, at the concluding round of this season, the rapid Queenslander secured a 2nd place overall finish, showcasing his skill and determination in the highly competitive field.
Noah’s junior career boasts an impressive record, marked by multiple Australian Junior Championships, notably clinching the 2018 Australian Junior 125 championship. His notable achievements have positioned him among the top riders in the country. As he embarks on this new chapter, Noah joins the ranks of Honda, a team that has secured three consecutive MX2 and SX2 championships, showcasing a strong legacy of success.
“I’ve been chasing the Honda’s for the past few seasons, well aware of what their bikes can do. The team’s impressive track record in securing championships and extracting the best from their riders is a testament to the team. I’m genuinely excited about the potential, we can achieve as a team together,” expressed Ferguson.
Mark Sladek, Team Manager of the Honda Factory Team, recognizes Noah’s exceptional talent, which played a crucial role in Honda’s decision to bring him on board.
“We were aware that Wilson Todd was moving up to the 450 class, and our goal was to sign someone capable of contending for the championship. Noah has demonstrated his ability to race at the forefront and outperform the competition in qualifying and racing. We are eager to support him in reaching his full potential,” commented Sladek.
