BOSSES at GBmoto have today revealed that David Shoubridge will join their team in a bid for the No Limits Racing National 600 Endurance title.
Following a flood of responses to a recent announcement that they were on the hunt for a new rider to replace the outgoing Kasey Wyatt, chiefs have now confirmed local rider Shoubridge as their third man.
The Ducati TriOptions Cup front-runner, who scored his first win in the BSB paddock this season with a victory at Cadwell Park, is set to partner Elliot Lodge and Max Smith-Halvorsen alongside his other 2020 commitments as the squad looks to make the transition from twins to 600s.
“I am super excited to join GBmoto Racing for the National 600 Endurance campaign, looking forward to working with such experienced people and creating a strong bond with Max and Elliot,” Shoubridge said.
“I will be focussed on working as hard as I can to get the most out of myself and the bike. I see this as a great opportunity and another big challenge.”
Team owner Mark Smith-Halvorsen also believes he’s found a solid match in Shoubridge and is now eyeing a strong start to the NLR campaign.
“We are confident that David will gel with the team well and has the pace and experience to adapt to Endurance racing quickly,” the GBmoto boss revealed. “We are all really looking forward to 2020, where we are making changes to bikes and riders, in a bid to start running at the front of the National 600 Class.
“But feet back on the ground, its all down to preparation and organisation again and we are now starting the slog, in terms of being ready for testing at the end of February in Cartagena.”
