The duo of Aaron Tanti and Jacob Hayes will fly the Serco Yamaha flag this week and look to turn it on for the Brisbane based team in front their local crowd. Tanti has pounded out moto upon moto at the practice track and is desperate to climb on the podium in this years Australian Supercross Championship.
Jacob Hayes returns to Serco Yamaha for the second year and is looking to improve on his third place finish in 2018. The US based Hayes enjoys is first stint at Serco Yamaha last season and is excited to be back down under. With a background in the cut and thrust US Arenacross circuit, the bar-banging nature of the Brisbane Entertainment Centre will be right up his alley.

With the rapid fire nature of this years‰Ûª championship and Crawford‰Ûªs intentions to race overseas in 2020, it was mutually agreed between Serco Yamaha and Crawford for him to pursue those options and he will miss this years‰Ûª championship.
‰ÛÏAaron has put in plenty of hard work since the end of the MX Nationals and I feel this is the best prepared he has been for the supercross championship. He has improved his fitness, dialled in his bike and eager to produce his best supercross series yet.
