Background

Known now as one of the most promising talents in racing, Australian Jett Lawrence first achieved international glory by winning the 2014 65cc World Championship in Belgium, at age 11. Not long after, his family moved to Europe full-time to support his and older brother Hunter’s motocross dreams. In 2016, Jett got his feet wet in the German ADAC series and the 85 European Motocross Championship. Two years later, he made the jump to the highly competitive 250 European Motocross Championship at age 14, winning a moto and, at the final round, an overall victory via 1-1 moto finishes.

The Lawrence family then relocated to the USA, where Jett raced for Factory Connection’s amateur squad, earning success at the Mini O’s and Loretta Lynn’s Ranch, as well as the 250 Futures class at the Monster Energy Cup. He also made his pro debut at the Unadilla round of the AMA Pro Motocross series, then moved up to Factory Connection’s pro team for 2020. Last season saw him lead and almost win only his third AMA Supercross 250SX main event, only to crash and break his collarbone, but he recovered to race well in AMA Pro Motocross, netting his first overall victory at the final round and also taking Rookie of the Year honors. Lawrence now races the factory CRF250R with Team Honda HRC.

Fun Fact: Jett used to be a hip-hop dancer when he was younger.
