GEICO Honda’s Jo Shimoda carries on his shoulders the weight of an entire country, as the kid from Suzuki, Japan, is regarded as the Japanese racer with the most potential ever to make a mark in AMA Racing. Shimoda has been racing in the United States for several years and is known for his smooth, effortless riding style, and for 2020, he has teamed up with motocross and Supercross legend Jeff Ward to get into the best shape of his life and prepare for his rookie indoor season.
