Serco Yamaha Metal Mulisha Racing broke all the records in 2013 winning every round of the Australian MX Nationals and then taking the ASX in the Pro Lites division with Luke Styke. Styke now moves to Europe and continues his involvement with Yamaha while after a promising season, Luke Clout stays with the team and will be joined by 2013 U19 ASX champ, Jay Wilson, who steps up from the GYTR Yamaha team.
With the 2014 season underway we are pumped to have Luke Clout back on board with our Serco Yamaha Metal Mulisha MX2 team. Clout was a revelation in 2013 prior to his injury posting impressive results in the MX Nationals, highlighted with a round win at Murray Bridge, and running second in the MX2 championship before a training fall caused him to miss the remainder of the season with a broken leg.
“Serco Yamaha are the best team in the MX2 class and signing to race with them again in 2014 was a formality. Everyone in the team works hard and the bikes are amazing so there really was no decision, it was just a matter of signing the contract and now getting fit and ready for the season to begin. I’m also looking forward to racing the new 2014 Yamaha YZ250F. The bike is all new and the reports we are hearing is that it is an awesome bike. It’s an exciting time to be with Yamaha and Serco and I can’t wait for my leg to heal and get back on the track.” – Clout
After a breakout 2013 season and joining Luke in the MX2 battle will be, Jay Wilson! Jay had a barnstorming finish to his 2013 season taking the win at the U19 Australian Supercross Championship, the New Zealand MX2 Supercross Championship as well as second place in the MXD class at the MX Nationals, to cement his seat with the most respected and desired team in the MX2 class.
“The move to Serco Yamaha has been on the table for a while and I’m so glad to finally have it announced,” Wilson said. “They are the best MX2 team in the pits with amazing bikes and great people in the team. I’m also really excited to stay involved with Yamaha. The system they have in place is perfect for riders climbing to the top and my involvement with the GYTR Yamaha team this year means I ready have a strong relationship with Gavin and Michael at Serco as well as Craig and everyone at CDR Yamaha. I’m looking for to getting some real time on the new 2014 model YZ250F as the bike is amazing and I can’t wait to see what Serco can do with the race bikes. I’m excited with the move to Serco and also the jump to the MX2 class. I can’t wait for the new season to come around.” – Wilson
The 2014 Australian MX Nationals kickoff on March 30, 2014 at Broadford in Victoria where both Clout and Wilson will start the season of kicking ass and taking names! View the full season event schedule.
