Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha signs Tim Tremblay for 2017 MX1 Nationals
Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha is pleased to announce the signing of Tim Tremblay to their MX1 team for the 2017 Rockstar Energy Drink CMRC Motocross Nationals, replacing Brett Metcalfe as #2 ranked Matt Goerke’s new teammate.
Last season Tremblay, who has been a Yamaha support rider for a number of years, filled in for an injured Metcalfe at the final round of the MX Nationals in Barrie on the Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha team, scoring a top-5 overall finish.
“We’ve been wanting to add at least one Canadian rider to our program again and Tim proved to be our best option. He’s been riding Yamahas for some time and has also been associated with Rockstar in the past. He’s a proven rider with plenty of experience and we’re happy to have him aboard,” team manager Andre Laurin said.
Although Tremblay is more renowned for his snowcross career, he has scored National MX2 wins and podium finishes in MX1. In 2009 he rode the MX1 series as a privateer, scoring a noteworthy No.10 ranking. Since 2010 he has raced only selected national rounds, in addition to the Quebec provincial series. The 2017 title hunt will be the Drummondville, QC native’s first full season of campaigning the MX 1 Nationals for a factory team.
“For me, signing with Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha is like a dream come true. It’s a great opportunity to race the best equipment there is, with full support from an experienced crew and top notch sponsors,” Tremblay noted. “When I got the call last year, asking me to ride for Brett Metcalfe in Barrie, I considered that quite an honour. I never thought it would lead to joining the team for a whole season, so I’m super excited to be racing for the team this year. I’m really looking forward to getting things underway.”
