As a big Amart fan I'm stoked to hear this news. It's gotta be a huge relief for him...knowing that he has a ride. I haven't seen anything about his recovery. Any updates out there?

Wish they could "Merge" all the names into one simple team name.

Either way congrats to Amart.

Do you know if it's a paying gig, or the standard Rock River bike/truck/flights/etc. but no salary ride?

No idea about that, but it's great to see him land a ride and not stuck privateering it.

I thought I heard on a Pulp podcast at some point that AMart isn’t willing to ride for free at this point.

That's kinda why I was asking. If the rumors around here were true, his contract with JGR was pretty good, so I couldn't imagine a guy of his caliber stepping into a ride for free – especially since he wasn't let go for anything negative.

Glad to hear this. Nice to hear that AMart has some backing. I think he will do just fine on the blue machine, under that tent.

Interesting... Glad to see A-Mart with a ride for sure. Am I reading it correctly, it's a 1 bike team?

Might be a little off topic, but does Suzuki have to pay AMart for the remainder of his contract due to the team folding? On a positive note, glad to see him on a competitive ride to show what he's capable of in 2021.
