As the 2023 season enters its next race, Rekluse is excited to share its continued partnership with Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing for Monster Energy Supercross and AMA Pro Motocross, making up the newly announced SuperMotocross World Championship. Coming off a triple-championship performance in 2022, the esteemed Yamaha team will continue utilizing Rekluse’s premier clutch technologies as they aim to defend their titles.
“The entire 2022 racing season was full of incredible accomplishments for Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing that we’re very proud to be a technical partner in achieving,” commented Alison Kelsey, General Manager for Rekluse. “The 2023 SuperMotocross World Championship brings even more excitement, kicking it off with multiple wins from Eli Tomac. Working closely with the top-level crew and riders at Star Racing, especially on the brand new YZ450F platform from Yamaha, has helped us continue to evolve championship-winning clutch components and we’re thrilled to continue building on this for all Rekluse riders and racers.”
2022 450SX and 450MX Champion, Eli Tomac and 2021 450MX Champion, Dylan Ferrandis returns for 2023, looking to keep the team’s premier class title streak rolling aboard all-new, Rekluse-equipped 2023 Yamaha YZ450F machines. Joining the duo for select Monster Energy AMA Supercross rounds is Justin Cooper, who is eager to make his premier class debut. Then, for the outdoor season, the 2021 250SX West Champion will shift his focus to a 250 title run in the AMA Pro Motocross Championship.
“Yamaha Racing is excited to continue our partnership with Rekluse for 2023! The Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing team has a completely new YZ450F this year and Rekluse has done a great job preparing for the start of the season,” said Jim Roach, Yamaha Racing Department Manager for YMUS. “With Eli getting his first Anaheim 1 win and others at San Diego and Houston, the season is off to a great start. We look forward to continued success in 2023 with Rekluse and Star Racing.”
