Sport Bikes: ‘Michael Jordan leaves AMA and considers MotoGP™’

After a decade in the United States’ AMA championship, Michael Jordan Motorsport, owned by the legendary basketball player of the same name, has elected to refocus its business model and this could involve a switch to the MotoGP™ World Championship.

In a statement published by Sport Bikes, the team’s Vice President for public relations, Kreig Robinson states, “We are evaluating the options of MotoGP™ and World Superbikes in order to see which option is best for a team structured like ours. We have built up and developed bikes using our own resources.

“In Superbikes the EVO class is now coming, while in MotoGP™ we have both the Moto2™ class as well as the new Open category (in the premier class). I cannot see us building a MotoGP™ prototype; it would be more advantageous for a team like ours to follow the model of another, such as LCR or Aspar. However, what is perfectly clear is that we want to start racing on an international level.”
