🎥 2018 CDR Yamaha Monster Team
Monster Energy has come onboard with the CDR Yamaha Racing Team for 2018 and 2019 to form what they are calling the 2018 CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team. Featuring the 2017 rider line-up of two-time MX Champ Dean Ferris, and Dylan Long.
Here is the official news from Yamaha Australia…
Two of the most powerful, successful and engaging brands in the action sports industry will join forces with CDR Yamaha and Monster Energy teaming together for the next two seasons under the working banner of The CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team.
In line with a new arrangement, the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy team can reveal a new racing livery on their factory YZ450F’s of Dean Ferris and Dylan Long.
In an association that will run through the 2018 and 2019 racing seasons and including the MX Nationals, the Australian Supercross Championships plus other selected events, The CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team will debut the new look at the opening round of the MX Nationals at Newry in Victoria on April 15 this weekend.
CDR Yamaha has been on the crest of the wave, winning eight of the past 11 MX Nationals crowns in the premier MX1 division and continue to set the benchmark of professional motocross racing in Australia after being in the racing business for 26 years. The addition of Monster Energy as major team partner will only strengthen the position of both companies in their respective markets and ensure on-going success both on and off the track.
With two time and reigning MX Nationals champion, Dean Ferris, back at the controls of the potent YZ450F and showing ominous form in pre-season events and talented young gun Dylan Long on the brink of unleashing his obvious natural skill, The CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team are poised for a hugely successful season.
“We are excited to reveal Monster Energy as a major partner with CDR Yamaha for the next two seasons,” CDR Yamaha team manager, Craig Dack, proudly announces. “Monster is a leading global brand and a huge supporter of action sports and racing around the world so we are very pleased to have them on board.
Monster Energy’s partnership with CDR Yamaha was a logical step as both companies forge a successful racing relationship around the global. Yamaha race teams, both road and off-road, have shared a mutually beneficial relationship in the US and Europe and now with the teaming of CDR Yamaha and Monster Energy in Australia, it will only strengthen the racing bond between both parties.
“To have Monster Energy on board is great for CDR Yamaha as well as racing in Australia,” expresses current MX Nationals champion, Dean Ferris. “Monster Energy has shown enormous support to racing around the world and for CDR Yamaha to secure their support here in Australia is a coupe for our team and one that both Dylan and myself will use to our advantage,” Ferris said.
