The 2022 season marks not only Rekluse's seventh consecutive season with Star Racing Yamaha, but a historical 450SX Championship with Supercross and Motocross legend, Eli Tomac.
After some testing throughout the off-season of 2015, the Star Racing crew began began officially running Rekluse clutch components in the 2016 Supercross season. Since then, this symbiotic performance relationship has not only helped fine-tune TorqDrive clutch technology, but has amassed over 10 Championships.
Eli's recent 2022 Supercross Championship exceeded the expectations of many, originally influenced by the concerns of switching to a new motorcycle. ET3 proved those concerns moot, riding his TorqDrive-equipped Yamaha YZ450F to seven main event wins, five of which occurred consecutively.
This Championship not only marks a milestone for Tomac, but especially for Yamaha. Yamaha's last premier class AMA Supercross title was in 2009 with James Stewart, and now they've just followed up their Rekluse-backed 2021 450 Pro Motocross title with another number 1 plate to hang on the wall.
The entire Rekluse crew is extremely proud to have the opportunity to work with factory-level race teams such as Star Racing Yamaha. The team behind the Rekluse doors remains made of up of core enthusiasts of the sport, sharing the same passion as the fans in the stands and the riders in the pits.
Working with Star Yamaha and other partners has helped evolve the same exact Rekluse clutch components available to any rider out there. Whether it's TorqDrive helping getting the power to the ground or the RadiusCX auto technology helping riders navigate demanding conditions, riders, racers and Champions choose Rekluse.
