Riley Graham and Scott Keegan To Target E1 Titles For Yamaha Australia
Yamaha Motor Australia have enlisted the services of Riley Graham and Scott Keegan to showcase their 250cc off-road bikes in this years‰Ûª Australian Off Road Championship (AORC) and the Australian Four Day Enduro (A4DE).

Both will have the full range of Yamaha 250cc equipment at their disposal with the WR250F and the YZ250FX expected to be the weapons of choice as both riders take on E1 duties for Yamaha Australia in 2016. The WR250F is the perfect bike for events like the A4DE were registration is required while the YZ250FX is a purpose built off-road racing machine and well suited to the AORC.

Hailing from South Australia, Riley Graham has proven his versatility in racing during 2015 as he was not only top three competitor in the E1 division but also a top 10 ranked motocross rider in the MX2 category. 2016 will see Graham continue to switch hit between the two disciplines but with a more determined focus on the off-road scene after such a promising 2015 season that saw him capture third in the AORC in the E1 division.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs an exciting time to be joining Yamaha with the extensive range of off-road bikes they have with the introduction of the new WR and YZ‰Ûªs on both two stroke and four stroke models,‰Û

Scott Keegan, from New South Wales, also joins Yamaha for 2016 and is motivated by the move to the E1 division, a class he has had success with in the past finishing second in the E1 championship in 2014.

Keegan has proven to be a consistent campaigner in Australian Off Road racing but the move to Yamaha has him refreshed for the 2016 season.

‰ÛÏYamaha has been extremely successful in the E1 class over the past few years winning several championships in the hands of Tom McCormack and Josh Green, so I‰Ûªm confident I‰Ûªm on the right bike." Keegan said.

‰ÛÏI have been on the WR250F for a few weeks now and I‰Ûªm impressed with its performance straight out of the crate. It will only take a few personal tweaks to the bike and I will be ready to go.

‰ÛÏI thank Yamaha Australia for this opportunity and look forward to working with a company that is excited to go racing and I hope to keep their winning tradition alive in the E1 class,‰Û
