The end of en era as CDR and Marmont split for the 2012 season

Posted:

The CDR Rockstar Yamaha team has extended their thanks and best wishes to Jay Marmont who is leaving the team after five national championships and four successful years with the factory Yamaha team.

The CDR Rockstar Yamaha / Jay Marmont association began in 2008 and has netted both parties four consecutive MX National championships as well as the 2011 Super X championship which wrapped up recently in Queensland.

Team owner, Craig Dack, looks back at their partnership with pride that included more than just championship success with the team having a 100% finish record with the ultra reliable YZ450F. Dack also has no hard feelings towards Marmont as the factory Yamaha team will now restructure with a new rider line up for 2012.

"On behalf of the team, I would like to thank Jay and his family for a tremendous four years in which we both enjoyed plenty of success. The partnership worked well but unfortunately has ran its course and as a team we wish Jay all the best with his future endeavours and look forward to competing against him in 2012," Dack offers.

Standby for more information to be released soon on the CDR Rockstar Yamaha team for 2012 as the team enters an exciting new period as CDR celebrates its 20th year in motocross racing and continues to be Australia's longest running and most successful race team.

"Bringing a new rider on board is always an exciting time for everyone involved and again CDR will commit its time, energy and resources into building and developing another champion. We have the best crew and infrastructure in the pits and the revolutionary YZ450F at our disposal."

"We will announce our full rider and team line up shortly but our team is again committed to ongoing success and will strive to maintain championship winning results in the future," Dack concludes.

Although their has been no offical announcment Jay Marmont will line up with the Monster Enrgy Kawasaki team in 2012 with Billy Mackenzie in the Pro Open class, Kad MOsig will head the Pro Lites team.
