Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha signs Brett Metcalfe for 2016 Canadian MX1 Nationals

Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha is pleased to announce the signing of Brett Metcalfe to the team’s 2016 CMRC Canadian MX1 Nationals lineup. No.3 ranked Metcalfe will be partnering with 2015 MX1 National Champion Matt Goerke.

 

“We’re really excited with the signing of Brett, which was an undertaking of Rockstar Energy and OTSFF. In addition to revamping the team to defend our No.1 plate in an ever increasing competitive field, there is also the fact that there is global interest for Brett and Rockstar, and obviously for OTSFF, in this venture. Having Brett aboard alongside a rider of Matt’s calibre is definitely a bonus,” OTSFF’s Andre Laurin said.

 

Rockstar Energy’s Marketing Director Mike Kelso, who was instrumental along with Laurin in brokering the deal, expressed his enthusiasm about the return of Metcalfe to the Rockstar fold. The California-based Australian previously represented the Rockstar colours in the 2012 AMA Pro Motocross Championships.

 

“We have been trying for years to get Metcalfe back on a Rockstar program, as he is a world class athlete and a true pleasure to work with. I’m happy to say Brett is back where he belongs,” Kelso noted. 

 

The team, which will be focusing its efforts exclusively on the MX1 class next season, is planning to start testing with Metcalfe and Goerke in January to start dialing in the new Yamaha YZ 450F bikes.

 

“For me to return to Canada is a great move for my career. It’s been a successful move thus far, looking back at the two seasons I’ve raced there. Signing with Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha is something I’m excited about. It looks like a strong team and I’m looking forward to getting started and keeping the ball rolling,” Metcalfe said.
