The event forms two rounds of the Australian Supercross series, where Yamaha riders have successfully been campaigning the new 2018 YZ450F.
Team CDR Yamaha rider Dean Ferris currently sits in second spot with team mate Dylan Long is now third in the championship after the Adelaide round. The new MX bike takes machine/rider connectivity to the next level with the world’s first smartphone tuning capability.
This new model and more will be displayed at the bLU cRU truck where the step-up concept is highlighted in the entire range right down to the PW50 Dream Starter.
The bLU cRU strategy appeals to riders of all ages, levels and abilities, and the AUS-X Open is the ideal event for even the youngest customer to not only check out the right bike for them, but also meet the world’s best racers and watch them in action.
“Yamaha is once again pleased to be able to support Australia’s blue ribbon dirt bike event, the AUS-X Open, the annual race showcases global superstars and is the jewel in the supercross crown, and as such it fits in with our bLU cRU step-up strategy of providing the opportunity for riders to compete on the biggest stage,” says Yamaha communications manager Sean Goldhawk.
Monster Energy AUS-X Open Sydney director Adam Bailey says it’s awesome to have Yamaha on board with the event for the third year running and thanks YMA for its level of support since the event’s inception.
“We are really appreciative of Yamaha’s support of the Monster Energy AUS-X Open,” says Bailey. “The team at YMA has been with us since the start and been an integral part of our success, including through their support of all the Yamaha supercross racers and FMX riders that have competed so far. Without their support, it really wouldn’t have been possible and we thank them for coming on this journey with us.”
