Yamaha Take Loins Share of Manufacturer Crowns at Motul MX Nationals
Yamaha has won the manufacturers cup in the majority of the championship classes contested throughout the 2017 Motul MX Nationals, winning the MX1. MX2, MXD, Women‰Ûªs and Vets 30-39 years in a dominant display from the ‰Û÷bLU cRU‰Ûª team.

With points tallied from each manufacturer represented throughout the series, it was Yamaha riders that tallied the most points in the major classes and showcased the high performance and track proven ability of the YZ range.

MX1 ‰ÛÒ 450cc
With Dean Ferris and his CDR Yamaha team pulling off one of the most comprehensive championship victories in history, Yamaha was always going to be a front runner in the MX1 division. Ferris racked up 17 race wins and nine round wins on his way to his second consecutive championship victory. Ferris only let three race victories from his grasp and he was never off the podium at any round in a year that will long be remembered by the racing industry.

DPH Motorsport‰Ûªs Kade Mosig also placed well throughout the year taking third in the championship making it a Yamaha 1-3 on the podium. Mosig was consistent all year and proved to be a valuable contributor for Yamaha at each and every round.
