The Junior Class is the last category to start its season during the Grand Prix Acerbis of Chile. This one has known some big changes during the off-season with numerous riders leaving it for the Senior categories. Among them, the 2014 World Champion Danny MCCANNEY (GB – Husqvarna) but also Loïc LARRIEU (F – Sherco), Nicolo MORI (I – KTM), or Rannar UUSNA (EST – KTM) and Eloi SALSENCH (E – Beta)! The hierarchy has to be completely rebuilt even if two riders seem to be faster!
– Giacomo REDONDI (I – Beta): Vice-Champion for the second time in two years in this class, he had to face two unleashed riders: PHILLIPS and MCCANNEY. “RED” really hopes to be crowning Junior World Champion in the handlebar of his Beta this season… To do so, the Italian has been very serious during the off-season and he is well-decided to fight.
– Jamie MCCANNEY (GB – Husqvarna): A MCCANNEY is leaving, another arrives… Jamie! Unfortunate last year (often injured), he hopes that the bad luck will leave him quite this year… At 100%, the Husqvarna official rider is extremely fast and technical and he will be a real danger for REDONDI who was already his rival in FIM Youth Cup 125cc…
