Peter Doyle, after working with Mat Mladin on his championship run, is now Blake Young’s Suzuki GSX-R1000 crew chief. Pete will bring a wealth of experience to Blake’s effort and this is a big plus for the Wisconsin racer. Blake Young, had a great rookie Superbike season and is poised to challenge Tommy Hayden and others for the 2010 AMA Superbike title, now that 7-time champion Mat Mladin has retired.
Blake Young Speaks…
"This year I’m working with crew chief Peter Doyle. I’m really looking forward to working with him and to getting that first race win under my belt. Hopefully after that, the wins will keep coming and a championship will follow. One thing for sure, having Pete on my team is a huge plus."
Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki is building on the momentum 2009 Superbike Champion Mat Mladin created in 2009 taking his GSX-R1000 to an unprecedented seventh title. For 2010 the bike is back – faster than ever, with two anxious teammates ready to battle it out and continue the Suzuki domination of Superbike racing.
For now, the Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki team will continue to test and refine the 2010 race bikes to be ready for the AMA Pro Superbike season opener in Daytona. This year’s event will be the 69th running of Speed Week at the Florida venue. Check out the Superbike race, and expect to see a couple of Suzukis at the front!.
