Roni Kytonen: “I’m very happy to join Honda Racing RedMoto world Enduro Team. It’s a reference team in the EnduroGP World Championship and race with a Honda-RedMoto CRF 250RX Enduro is a great emotion. Soon I will move to San Pellegrino Terme in order to follow the development of the bike and train with Oldrati. I hope to get good results. Thank you to Matteo Boffelli, Honda-RedMoto and the whole team for the support.”
Matteo Boffelli, RedMoto Racing Team Manager: “Roni is a young and talented rider. We're glad he's joining our family. We believe that his talent and growth will allow Honda Racing RedMoto World Enduro Team to achieve important results even among the Junior riders. It’s an added value to the team after the good results of Thomas Oldrati and the recruitment of Daniel McCanney. I'm sure that Roni will follow in the footsteps of his father Vesa, who was one of the first great Finnish ruler of the World Championship winning the 250 4T title in 1999.”
