World MX: Yamaha to split from Cairoli's Red Bull De Carli Team


Yamaha Motor Europe and Yamaha Motor Italy jointly announce today that they will not be able to continue their relationship with rider Antonio Cairoli and the Yamaha Red Bull De Carli Team, current leaders of the MX1-GP Motocross World Championship, for 2010.

Yamaha will continue to give all the support needed for the remainder of this season for all parties to reach and focus on their mutual goal of capturing this year’s title.

Yamaha would like to express its utmost thanks to Claudio De Carli, his team and Antonio Cairoli whose excellent work over the last few years has led to titles across the board; not only at World Championship level but also in European Supercross and also the Italian domestic series. They will always remain a very proud part of Yamaha’s racing history and Yamaha wishes them all the best for the future.
