Luke Clout Returns to CDR Yamaha For 2021 Season
Luke Clout returns to the powerful CDR Yamaha team for 2021
The CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team are fired up and ready to go for the 2021 season and proud to announce their two A-list riders lining up for the Pro MX and Australian Supercross Championship.

Hayden Mellross will stay on the team for his second year and he will be joined by Luke Clout who returns to CDR Yamaha on a multi-year deal, after a season hiatus in the US.

The familiar number four will be back under the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team awning as Luke Clout returns to the fold after a season in the US. Clout had his best season to date in 2019 under the guidance of the CDR Yamaha team where he charged to a second place finish in both the Australian Motocross and Australian Supercross Championships but will be out for one better come 2021.

The 26 year old Sydneysider is happy to be back in Australia and enthusiastic to be racing again on home soil.

‰ÛÏThe uncertainty in racing in the US, especially for international riders, meant I had to re-evaluate my career and what my goals were,‰Û

Hayden Mellross is looking forward to going racing on the national stage with the CDR Yamaha team after a strange 2020
Mellross, now based in Victoria to be closer to the teams base, gets his first real shot on the CDR Yamaha YZ450F in 2021 after the 2020 season was destroyed by Covid. But it wasn‰Ûªt a waste of season in many ways as Mellross was able to get 100% comfortable on the CDR Yamaha YZ450F and the team had done all the pre-season testing prior to the shut-down of the season.

The 12 month familiarity with both the bike and the team has Mellross well placed heading into the 2021 season and with a clean bill of health, he is looking to secure that elusive professional championship in Australian motocross and supercross that has eluded him so far in his career.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs great to continue on with the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team and build on a solid base that we formed in 2020." Mellross commented. "While we did next to no racing in 2020, I was able to recover from a pre-season injury and then use the time to personalise the bike and settings for me and I feel right at home on the YZ450F.

‰ÛÏWe have the rebranded Australian Motocross Championship in the Pro MX which we hope will lift the profile of motocross, while the Australian Supercross Championship gets better each year and it seems everyone is passionate to get things back up to full power after the interrupted season we have had in 2020.

‰ÛÏCraig and the team have put everything in place and I‰Ûªm at the stage of my career that I feel I can be at my best, so I‰Ûªm looking forward to getting back on track with the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy team and chasing some championships with them,‰Û

Team owner, Craig Dack, is excited about the squad he has assembled in 2021 and feels this season will be one to remember for the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team.

‰ÛÏWe have been able to secure two mature, experienced and determined racers in the prime of their careers to represent the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team in 2021,‰Û
