Hill is currently seventh in the 250SX West Championship (which is currently on break) and will make his 450SX Suzuki debut this weekend at the Tampa Supercross.

“I’m ultra-psyched to have this opportunity,” the San Diego 250SX West winner, Hill, said. “I’ve been waiting a long time to ride the all-new Suzuki RM-Z450, and that’s what our deal entails for next year. To get my feet wet is crucial, not just for racing, but also in getting some development time logged. We’ve already made a lot of great setting choices on the bike and I’m learning a lot,” stated Hill. “It’s really easy for me to ride the bike. The great part about these 450 races is that I have my own expectations, but there isn’t any pressure. It should be fun.”

Hill will compete in the 450SX class on a race-by-race basis.
