“After the decision to move to Yamaha was taken, retaining Brad, Kyle, and Billy, was key to our 2022 challenge. We firmly believe that they will benefit from the proven race-winning pedigree of the Yamaha R1. We’re excited to see both the bikes and riders on track at the earliest opportunity.

The team are proven race winners and podium contenders, so combined with the R1 which has won 18 races in BSB this year in the hands of McAMS Yamaha we are confident in this partnership. Our official team, McAMS Yamaha, will work closely with OMG to ensure that all four R1s on the grid are fighting towards the front.
