Rockstar Energy/YAMAHA/OTSFF Signs Shawn Maffenbeier for 2013 MX Nationals

OTSFF Sports Marketing Group’s Andre Laurin is pleased to announce the signing of Shawn Maffenbeier to Team Rockstar Energy Yamaha for the 2013 CMRC Canadian Motocross Nationals.

The Swift Current, SK native will campaign the MX2 National Championship for the factory team aboard the new YZ250 2-stroke.

"We believe in Shawn’s potential to make a dent in the MX2 title hunt and we’re glad to have him aboard for the season," said Laurin. "Shawn has a long history riding Yamaha product, which should make the transition to our team a smooth one for him."

Maffenbeier, who won pretty well every amateur motocross championship in his home province of Saskatchewan at one time or another, made his breakthrough on the CMRC Nationals scene during the 2011 motocross season, when he traded his No. 23 plate for a noteworthy No. 6 in the MX1 class.

The highly anticipated 2012 season proved to be filled with highs and lows for Maffenbeier, which saw him finish the MX1 points chase with a No. 10 ranking. Maffenbeier experienced consistency issues and finding the right focus, something he hopes to put behind him this year.

"I’m quite excited to have been presented with the opportunity to sign with Rockstar Energy Yamaha, OTSFF. I’m looking forward to the challenge of contesting the MX2 class, and I’m definitely aiming for the No.1 plate,“I’m quite excited to have been presented with the opportunity to sign with Rockstar Energy Yamaha, OTSFF.
