The Suzuki-powered French team has recruited Italian Matteo Giacomazzo, Japan’s Takeshi Ishizuka and Frenchman Christopher Thion to partner existing rider Côme Geenen (pictured) from Belgium.
Under the guidance of Jean-Marc Adam, JMA Motos Action Bike will be in contention for Superstock category honours and Adam has high hopes that his team will be able to deliver after a challenging season in the EWC in 2022.
“We wanted an international crew and fast riders,” said Adam. “Côme was already part of the adventure last season but this is the first time we have taken this approach. We will discover other cultures and other approaches. I’m confident.”
Despite his confidence, Adam is braced for a tough start to the EWC season. “Today, the race pace is so high that it is difficult to move up the rankings quickly. But the passion is still there. I am convinced that the reliability of our machine and the talent of our riders will allow us to find the top five as in the 2020 24 Heures Motos.
“We work on the bikes every day because preparation is at the heart of our job. We will also take part in rolling sessions at the beginning of March. It will be a question of gaining confidence in order to approach the 24 Heures Motos with serenity.”
