It‰Ûªs a tall order, but the WBR Yamaha team will be out to match their 2018 success that saw them claim the top two spots in the MXD class at the MX Nationals, with an all new and talented line up for 2019.
The in-coming riders of Max Purvis and Jack Kukas will form the team for 2019 and the WBR Yamaha team will also reveal a new look when they roll into round one of the MX Nationals with their new purpose built transporter.
Purvis, who hails from New Zealand, was third in the MXD class in 2018 at the MX Nationals riding as a Yamaha privateer. Highlighted with four round wins, Purvis proved he had the speed to match it with anyone in the class but is now focessed on moving up the podium in 2019 and determined to make every post a winner.
Again his year will start in New Zealand where he will contest the MX2 class with the JCR Yamaha team before coming over to Australia and getting his campaign started at the MX Nationals. This is the final year for Purvis in the MXD category and knows what it takes to get to the top of the podium.
‰ÛÏI have done two seasons in Australia now and I feel comfortable racing here now as I know the riders and how the events work,‰Û
