Supercross: Metcalfe to Rockstar Suzuki

AMA Supercross

Brett Metcalfe is joining the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team for the 2011 AMA Supercross Championships racing the fuel-injected RM-Z450.

Metcalfe impressed in 2010 with his strong finish in the AMA Pro Motocross series with results as high as second place at the final race of the season at Pala Raceway.

He ended the series as runner-up to Suzuki’s World Supercross and AMA Motocross Champion Ryan Dungey.

Metcalfe’s talent and speed led him to be the natural choice to fill out the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team: With new Team Manager Mike Webb and Team Advisor Ricky Carmichael, Metcalfe and Dungey will be racing to keep the number one plate on the RM-Z.

Brett Metcalfe says: "I’m really excited to be joining the team. There’s no doubt that the RM-Z450 is a race-winning machine and I can’t wait to start testing. I think that the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team will be a good place for me to really focus on putting together a solid 2011. I’m looking forward to working with Mike, Ricky and Ryan and I’m ready to start racing."

The Rockstar Makita Suzuki team will soon start testing the new 2011 Suzuki RM-Z450 in preparation for the start of the AMA Supercross series in January.
