JMA Racing Action Bike has revealed its three riders for the 8 Hours of Spa Motos, Belgium’s round of the FIM Endurance World Championship next month.

Frenchman Charles Cortot, Italian Matteo Giacomazzo and Dutch rider Milan Merckelbagh, will compete on the team’s #34 Suzuki in the Dunlop-supplied Superstock category, which counts for the FIM Endurance World Cup.

The return of Giacomazzo is notable after an injury to his right hand prevented him from competing in the EWC season-opening 24 Heures Motos last month, leading to Julien Lenoci being called up as his replacement.

Having suffered a broken collarbone and crushed finger when he fell during the 24 Heures Motos, Belgian rider Bram Lambrechts isn’t included in JMA’s Spa line-up, and could miss out on competing in his home round of the EWC while he continues his recovery from injury.

A Facebook post from JMA Racing Action Bike read:

We will be ready to defend our place in the top 10 of Superstock. A big thank you to Suzuki Moto France and Action Bike as well as all our partners who allow us to continue the adventure. One month after the 24 Heures Motos we are in full preparation for the 8 Hours of Spa Motos.

Under FIM EWC regulations, Formula EWC and Superstock can enter three riders only for eight-hour races. There is no possibility to nominate a reserve rider or enter a fourth race rider, which Superstock teams are allowed to do for 24-hour races. Only in the event of force majeure can a team seek permission from the FIM International Jury to make a change to its rider line-up.

The 8 Hours of Spa Motos takes place from 6-8 June. Click HERE for the latest ticket information.
