Rekluse Partners with Standing Construct/Yamalube Yamaha MXGP TeamTestimonials >>
Jul 21, 2015
Boise, ID USA (July 21, 2015) – Rekluse is proud to be officially partnered with the Standing Construct/Yamalube Yamaha racing team. The relatively new Yamaha factory team continues to be a force to be reckoned with in the MX2 class with riders Valentin Guillod (#92) and Julien Lieber (#33) running 3rd and 8th overall. MXGP is the pinnacle of elite racing worldwide, and the team, known for engineering and acute tuning, needed a durable clutch solution to carry them to the end of the season. “I had the opportunity to meet the Standing Construct team while I was attending the MXGP of Italy in Maggiora,” said Sean Brown, R&D Manager at Rekluse. “Being there in person to help finalize this partnership and witness the team in action was extremely exciting. Working with teams of this caliber is incredibly valuable to our company and our ongoing efforts to develop the best clutch systems.” Rekluse was pleased to address the Standing Construct team’s needs through its proprietary TorqDrive clutch technology. “Changing the clutch to the Rekluse TorqDrive instantly allowed Valentin and Julien to get everything out of the bikes for the entire race,” stated Team Manager Tim Mathys. “The enhanced durability and performance of the clutch is second to none. We are glad to have Rekluse as part of the team.” Through the combination of highly skilled riders and the precision performance of Rekluse products, the Standing Construct team has made a name for itself this season. So far the team has hit the podium in 10 races with two first place finishes, five second place finishes, and three third place finishes. There are five more rounds before the MXGP series wraps up with the final round in the United States on September 20.
