Morning Espresso: Savatgy Tests with MotoConcepts, Craig’s First Day with Star and More

Welcome to Morning Espresso where we recap some news from around the world.

Savatgy to MotoConcepts?

Joey Savatgy, who spent last year with JGRMX, was spotted at State Fair MX this week testing with the SmartTop/Bullfrog Spas/MotoConcepts team. Rumors around the pits are that Savatgy won’t be returning to JGR after an injury-riddled 2020 campaign with the team.

After a strong 450SX rookie season with Monster Energy Kawasaki, Savatgy was injured at the AUS-X Open last year and missed all of Monster Energy Supercross. He returned for Lucas Oil Pro Motocross but struggled to regain his 2019 form.

The team appears to have an opening, as it’s likely Malcolm Stewart won’t return. It’s understood that long-time team rider Vince Friese is back, while it’s unknown if Justin Hill will return for a second year.

@zoidphotos captured Savatgy testing the Honda.

Craig’s First Day with Star Racing

Christian Craig has made the switch to Monster Energy/Star Racing Yamaha for 2021 and our resident hipster, Kyle Cowling, was there to capture Craig’s first day with the team.
