Speaking via his Facebook page about his unique new backers for this season, Jonathan said:
“Some really big news this morning!!
I have been selected by The Billy Redmayne Memorial Fund as a supported rider for 2017!
This news was totally unexpected and I can’t thank everyone involved enough for the effort they are putting in, it will be an absolute honour to run my bikes with Billy’s name on board and I hope I do him and everyone proud!”
It’s great to see Billy Redmayne’s legacy live in on, via this memorial fund, named in honour of him, which will no doubt help Jonathan Perry with his aims to wrap up more top class results within the roads scene.
