Hayden confirms 2023 MotoAmerica title assault
Hayden Bicknese is excited to announce his participation in the 2023 MotoAmerica Junior Cup Championship.
Hayden, who improved and finished eighth out of 36 entrants overall in the MotoAmerica Junior Cup Championship series in 2022, is looking to build on his successes from twelve months ago – a year that saw him race to a maiden national podium at the iconic Laguna Seca raceway.
The 16 year old from Defiance, Missouri will once again line up on the ultra-competitive grid for his own family made team Bicknese Racing – a team run professionally by his father Randy, who also doubles up as Crew Chief. Bicknese Racing has a strong and proven team of very valued partners and sponsors contributing to their racing efforts. The support received covers a range of things from setup, product specification and data analysis to name but three.
During the off-season Hayden has benefited from a unique opportunity to train with other exemplary elite student athletes to sharpen his mental toughness, his physical fitness, and most importantly his racing confidence. These off-season improvements are something both Hayden and the Bicknese Racing team are confident will have an impact when the #69 takes to the track.
“I am ready to take the next step in my racing career in 2023. I learned a lot in 2022 about running our own professional racing team as a family and was able to show my speed by running at the front in the majority of races. I took a podium at Laguna Seca and I now feel ready and confident to lead the pack and set the pace. I do my part off track to make sure my mind, body and equipment are always ready to compete professionally. Thank you to everyone who is behind me. I am excited to start the 2023 season.”
