Monster Energy Yamaha – The Dream Team Carries On

February 16, 2019 • admin

As we race into the 2019 season, teams are hitting the ground running and we are excited to see all the rider dynamics as we see a handful of new teams! The one factory team that saw no rider change is the Yamaha Factory team with Maverick Vinales and Valentino Rossi who are continuing their MotoGP careers side by side. While Vinales has only been with the Yamaha team for the past two years, Rossi AKA “The Doctor” has been part of the Yamaha family since 2013.

Finishing 3rd and 4th in the 2018 World Championship, some may say Rossi and Vinales have an upper hand to their opponents as they enter the new season with the same manufacture and teammate. Their performance at the Sepang MotoGP Test left fans feeling optimistic as Maverick Vinales finished in the top 5 and Valentino Rossi finished in the 10 for all three test sessions.

We hope to see a strong start to the season from these two and wish the best of luck to the Monster Energy Yamaha team!
