Two of the brightest rising stars of ANZAC motocross racing, Maximus Purvis and Alex Larwood will return to the WBR Bulk Nutrients Yamaha Team for 2021, but with a slight twist.

Both will make their debut in new classes for ‰Ûª21 with Purvis making the leap to the MX1 (450cc) class while Larwood will step into the MX2 (250cc) class.

Purvis, the current New Zealand MX2 champ, is keen to return to Australia for the new season and 2021 marks his third year with the WBR Yamaha team. During the break in racing this year, Purvis was able spend time on the Yamaha YZ450F back in his NZ base and found the bike exactly to his liking.

When the discussion of 2021 came up, Max expressed a wish to race the YZ450F and was delighted that the WBR Yamaha team were able to make that happen and support him in the same manner as previous years.

‰ÛÏ2021 needs to be a huge year for me and one that establishes me in Australian motocross,‰Û

Alex Larwood
Continuing into his second year with WBR Yamaha, South Australia‰Ûªs Alex Larwood will move into the MX2 class and is set to rattle the cages of the big names in the class. Larwood was slated down to race the MXD (under 19) division in 2020 but with the cancellation of racing and also a change to the class structure in 2021, he will make the transition into the MX2 class.

Reports early in the 2020 season had Larwood down as superfast, but a broken leg halted that progress. He is now healed up and returning to full training in preparation for the new year and will no doubt be a force to be reckoned with when national racing gets under way in April.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs great to be back with WBR Yamaha again and racing the MX2 class on the YZ250F. I had put in a lot of work at the start of 2020 and was feeling great on the bike but my leg injury kept me sidelined for a while and that has only made the motivation stronger.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm looking forward to racing the MX2 class and going against the best guys in Australia. It will be a big step but I have been training with a lot of riders already in that class and feel comfortable riding with them.

‰ÛÏThe leg is nearly 100% and I have a full program ready to go in the off season to ensure I hit round one in great shape.

‰ÛÏI can‰Ûªt wait to get started,‰Û
