In a bid to showcase the high quality and diverse range of Yamaha off road equipment, the Active8 Yamaha team are mixing it up this A4DE. Chris Davey will fill the seat vacated by the injured Beau Ralston and will break out the YZ250 two stroke with a big bore 300cc kit installed and contest the E3 class, while the fresh off the injury list, Josh Green, wil step aboard the YZ250FX and go after the E1 honours.
Green, who has just returned to riding after five months on the sideline with knee surgery feels the lighter, more nimble 250FX machine is just what he needs as he regains full strength and fitness.
‰ÛÏI guess we are spoiled for choice at Yamaha with the range of bikes at our disposal and with my limited time to prepare because of my knee, then myself and the team felt the YZ250FX was the way to go. I‰Ûªm loving it at the moment and I feel great on the bike so I look forward to a good week with the team down in Victoria,‰Û
