“Our longstanding partnership with Honda allows us to fully immerse ourselves into the unique aspects of motocross,” said Heath Miller, 9thWonder’s Group Account Director. “Our goal with this campaign is to not only showcase the CRF250R’s major updates, but promote its ability to complement all riders—regardless of style—and give them the competitive edge they need to get on the podium.”

(Jett was recently crowned the national champion for the 2021 AMA Pro Motorcross 250 season.)
