Sticking with the old adage, 'if it ain‰Ûªt broke, don‰Ûªt fix it', Jay Wilson and Levi Rogers will again fly the flag for the Yamalube Yamaha Racing Team for the 2021 motocross and supercross season.
The team is the ultimate Yamaha branding outlet with all the inhouse Yamaha brands of Yamalube, GYTR, Yamaha Motor Insurance, Yamaha Motor Finance, bLU cRU at the forefront and combined with the use of brands like SCOTT, Just 1, Dunlop, DID, NGK and JT Sprockets from Yamaha Australia‰Ûªs sister company, Ficeda Accessories, it is Australia‰Ûªs true and only manufacturer based team.
The duo of Wilson and Rogers make a great contrast of youth and experience and with both riders contesting the MX2 and SX2 championships on the potent YZ250F, they will be able to learn and bounce off each other in a positive fashion and elevate themselves as the year progresses.
For Wilson, he will spearhead the team and continue the successful relationship that has seen him win several championships with Yamalube Yamaha Racing over the years. While he did consider a move to the 450cc class, Wilson is happy to remain on the YZ250F and with a majorly updated machine, he is excited to get stuck into pre-season testing and development.
‰ÛÏMy goals heading into 2020 were to have a dominant year on the 250 and move to the 450 class for 2021 but with the year the racing world has had, I have just pushed everything back a season. My motivation is as strong as it‰Ûªs ever been and I think I have yet to hit my peak as a rider in terms of both speed and fitness.
‰ÛÏI have found a real interest in off bike training which I didn‰Ûªt always have and with Levi and Kota around last year, they were a good motivational tool for me as both of them are so enthusiastic about riding and racing, that it naturally rubs of on me.
‰ÛÏI feel fresh and ready to go and as always we have a great team that‰Ûªs willing to do what it takes to get success. The goal is to win, and that‰Ûªs what we are out to do,‰Û
