The clock is ticking til Anaheim One and teams are locking down to prepare for the new year. We are just over a month away from the start of another race season, and not to sound cliche, but this is setting up to be the biggest year of the sport yet. Things are still unconfirmed regarding numerous riders and teams, but last week it was announced that Yamaha will support two new teams and confirmed Travis Baker’s addition to Valli Yamaha. After years as a privateer effort aboard Hondas, the Eleven10 Mods crew have become included in Yamaha’s satellite program with Alex Martin as their lone rider. Industry veterans Brian Berry and Kenny Germain have put together the Velocity3 Racing Team for Kyle Chisholm and Bobby Kiniry’s runs at the Supercross season. Phil Nicoletti will also have Yamaha support as he competes the full 2013 season for N-Fab/Ti-Lube Racing. Jessica Patterson also will return to Yamaha after a brief absence from the brand.
