Spearheaded by their new signing, 2023 World Champion Steve Holcombe, the official Honda RedMoto Racing team in the Enduro World Championship has named its full five rider line-up for the 2024 EnduroGP and Italian Championship seasons.

The old dog Thomas Oldrati is back for yet another campaign in both the Italian Championship, where he won the 250 4T class title, and will join Holcombe racing E1 in the world championship. Thomas also has more of a rider and bike development supporting role within the team these days too. 

Samuele Bernardi will ride the bigger CRF450RX in the Italian Championship and E2 class in the EnduroGP. Manolo Morettini meanwhile will be the team’s Junior class rider in both the Italian and World Championships.

And last but not least Francesca Nocera will aim to retain her Italian Women Enduro title and improve on her third place in the Enduro Women’s World Championship.

The team now has a two months stint of pre-season training in Spain, Sicily and Italy.
