Serco Yamaha are keeping it all in the family for 2017 with the signing of cousins, Jackson Richardson and Mitch Evans, to represent their race team for the coming season.
The North Queensland duo will spearhead the Serco Yamaha charge in 2017 on board the potent YZ250F and compete in the MX Nationals and Australian Supercross Championships as well as other selected events.
Both come to the team with championship pedigree, with Richardson the current Australian SX2 Champion, while Evans is the reigning MXD MX Nationals champion and both are out for continued success in 2017.
After five years of racing in the US, Jackson Richardson has made his commitment to racing back in Australia following his success during the 2016 Australian Supercross Championship. Richardson took up a last minute option to race the series with Serco Yamaha and instantly found his groove on the Yamaha YZ250F.
He enjoyed his time with the team and along with the success he achieved swayed his decision to stay in Australia and now he wants to add more championships to his tally in season 2017.
