Tyler Bowers has become one of the most recognizable 250 riders with his aggressive riding style, history atop the podium including a 250 Supercross win, and multiple (4x) Arenacross Championships. 51FIFTY Energy Drink Yamaha Racing Team is proud to add the talented rider to the team in 2017.
“I’m excited to join 51FIFTY and the bLU cRU!” says Bowers. “I’ve been riding and testing with the team for several weeks now and the bike is really strong. Right out of the gate I noticed how great the bike handled and was impressed at how well the team works together. I see great potential in the team and expect, working with our staff, to elevate the team as whole and put myself in position up front where I know I belong.”
“Tyler has an aggressive riding style, and is someone who will put up a fight for race wins,” states Team Manager Craig Monty. “That’s a great quality for a racer and an attribute that’s important to the rest of the team. This is our 6th year in the Supercross series and we continue to grow with each season. We have Hayden Mellross back (#62) and we’re fired up to have a rider of Tyler’s caliber join the team.”
Watch for Bowers, his new number (#52), and the Yamaha YZ250F whenever he’s approaching a rider in a bowl turn, blitzing through the whoops and on the podium in 2017.
