Judd Racing– we’ve all heard of them, we’ve all bought from them. They are the main supplier of KTM parts for 50cc bikes through to 125cc as well as a large distributor of Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha parts.Judd Racing

The main question they ask: Are you Judd enough? Well they think Nitro Neo is, and they have asked him to be their auto sponsored rider for the 2015 season!!

Everyone in the MX game will know this is a big deal, Judd are major motocross players and only ask the best of the best to be their sponsored rider. The deal will see Neo compete against the fastest boys and girls in the country in the 2015 GT cup, as well as regional Club Championships, where he will compete against 6 to 9 year olds on 50cc race tuned bikes. Neo is also registered for the 2015 Hardcore Racing MX Master Kids UK, as well as venturing across the channel into mainland Europe for some track time.

When Nitro was told of this amazing news, he was extremely proud as all the young athletes know Judd are a prestigious company in the world of motocross. Neo can’t wait to jump on his bike sporting the 2015 Judd Racing stealth edition graphics and show Judd his best racing skills.

IMG_0285Judd Racing Director Michelle Arnold said:

We’re very pleased to be sponsoring Nitro Neo for the 2015 Season.  He’s a rider who’s not only local to us, but who’s charity work and local accolades symbolise everything that Judd Racing as the UK’s Youth Motocross Specialists care about.

Kayleigh Hellewell, Media & Communications Manager for Team Nitro added:

This is a partnership we’re so pleased to have, we know that the team at Judd are great at what they do; they are extremely helpful and knowledgable, and in return we know that Nitro Neo can use their parts to the full potential they’d like to see.  The announcement is a great end to the racing season and we can’t wait to work with Judd next year.



Here at Team Nitro we’re pleased to announce that additional sponsors have come forward to support Neo through his racing journey.

The latest addition to the team is Muc-Off who have invited Neo to be one of only 50 Factory Support Riders in the world after spotting he was such a dirty boy!

Neo signed his contract the moment it landed at Team Nitro HQ and the Muc-Off goodies have been flowing ever since.  Official congratulations came in the form of Neo’s Factory Support Rider pack containing his certificate and badges to ensure he is recognised as a Muc-Off rider wherever he goes.


Nick Charlier from Muc-Off Head Office said:

At Muc-Off we are excited to have eager aspiring athletes that are willing to go the extra mile for their sport and become ambassadors for our brand.  Muc-Off only look for the most ambitious athletes, these riders are expected to deliver results.  Muc-Off look for individuals that work well with others and have a positive attitude for life and those around them.  We appreciate it takes hard work and determination to get where you are, we are excited to support you and watch you grow to be the best you can.

Nitro Neo is super excited to have such a big player on board with a sponsorship deal, and he is determined to work even harder over the next year to prove they have made the right choice in picking him over many other riders looking for support. Neo knows that it’s his hard work, dedication and his cool personality that see him rewarded with deals like this, so he’s keen to impress and keep up the good work.

Shaun McCartney, Team Nitro Manager said:

We are proud to work with Muc-Off. We gained confidence in their products after testing others on the market but found nothing worked as well to get Neo’s bike looking as good as new after he pushes it to its limits in the most harsh racing conditions; wind, rain, sand, mud, dust, dirt, we can’t shy away from the elements in this sport.  Muc-Off has never failed to help us prepare Neo’s bike, race after race.

Thanks Muc-Off, Team Nitro are pleased to have you on board and we’re looking forward to next year’s race season to show you what Nitro Neo is really made of!  Visit for the ultimate products to keep you and your toys in mint condition, don’t fear the dirt when you know you have Muc-Off to come home to.
