Background

After Hunter Lawrence and younger brother Jett achieved success in their native Australia, their family sold their belongings and moved overseas, where he first campaigned the 2016 European Motocross Championship and then the FIM MXGP series’ MX2 class in 2017, taking second overall at the U.S. round in Florida, and finishing ninth in the final standings. The following year saw him switch to the 114 Motorsports satellite Honda squad, with whom he finished third on the year despite missing several races. Along the way, Hunter won the MX2 class at the 2017 Motocross of Nations and finished second the following year.

From there, Lawrence relocated to the U.S. to race a CRF250R with the Factory Connection team in 2019 AMA competition. Although his results were affected by injuries, Hunter notched 250 moto wins at the 2019 Millville and High Point rounds of the AMA Pro Motocross series. For 2021, Hunter is riding for the factory Team Honda HRC squad.

Fun Fact: Hunter is an avid mountain-bike rider.
