Spokane, Wash. (October 29, 2009) – MotoConcepts Racing is excited to announce the signing of former Australian Champion Daniel Reardon and former Factory KTM rider Ryan Sipes. Both of these riders join MotoConcepts Racing for the 2010 AMA Supercross/Motocross race series.
Reardon is currently in Australia participating in the 2009 Super X Series. He will complete the series before joining the team in early December to begin testing and training on his new Yamaha YZ450F which he will be riding during 2010. Reardon has proven he has the speed to run up front. Before suffering injuries this summer, he was a consistent top five threat as he secured sixth overall at both Hangtown and Freestone. Recently at the 2009 US Open in Las Vegas, Reardon also showed his talent on a tight Supercross track taking third overall.
Sipes has settled into California where he begins testing and training on his YZ250F. The Kentucky native battled through injuries in 2009 before returning to the last few rounds of the Lucas Oil AMA Outdoor Nationals where he proved again, why he was one of the top riders. In only four rounds, Sipes compiled enough points to finish 21st overall and finished the year off with an impressive fourth overall at Steel City.
"This is an exciting time for MotoConcepts Racing," stated Team Owner Mike Genova. "We have added two excellent riders to our team and they help complete a 2010 squad that will represent our sponsors very well and be extremely competitive on the track. With the support we receive from Yamaha and the talent of our riders, we look forward to great race results," continued Genova.
Team Manager Steve Lamson had similar feelings regarding the 2010 MotoConcepts Race Team. "We have put together a great looking 2010 team that has a lot of talent and experience," stated the former 2-time Champion Lamson. "The new Yamaha bikes are really strong and the opportunity for a high level of success is very motivating as we prepare for Anaheim one."
Reardon and Sipes join Jeff Alessi (250 W), Vince Friese (250 E), and Matt Goerke (450) as the 2010 members of MotoConcepts Racing. The team is still actively looking to add another rider, stay tuned for more information.
