2018 Monster Energy/Knich/Yamaha Factory Racing Supercross/Motocross Team Gallery

Get a little Blue bike preview before SX starts

For 2018 Yamaha recruited a mix of racers it has never fielded before. Cooper Webb will be returning and is sort of the Yamaha veteran since Justin Barcia was on a Yamaha previously only as a support team and Davi Millsaps has been on a KTM support team for the last few years. The racing action is right around the corner, so enjoy these shots of the bikes and riders before the carnage of competition.

"This is a great opportunity for me, and not only am I really happy to be back racing a Yamaha again, but I'm especially excited to be racing for the Monster Energy/Knich/Yamaha Factory team. I'm super proud to have my number 51 on the brand-new 2018 YZ450F!" —Justin BarciaCourtesy Of Yamaha

"First of all, I'm super excited to be racing for the Monster Energy/Knich/Yamaha Factory team. To be making my Yamaha debut aboard the 2018 YZ450F is going to be awesome.

"I worked hard during the off-season to ensure that I'm in the best possible shape I can be in, and I feel really good. The new 2018 YZ450F is an amazing bike, and I feel confident I've got the best machine, along with the best team, with which to contend for race wins and championships in 2018." —Cooper WebbCourtesy Of Yamaha
