Suzuki & Metcalfe: 2011 SX Prep Video

2011 AMA Supercross Prep

In this YouTube video, Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider Brett Metcalfe prepares for the upcoming 2011 AMA Supercross season.

The video shows what it takes for the Australian to get ready for AMA SX aboard his Suzuki RM-Z450 equipped with a Yoshimura Exhuast.

Metcalfe impressed the industry 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 his year in the Motocross series in second place behind his now-teammate Ryan Dungey, and showed plenty of promise on the racetrack.

Metcalfe signed with Rockstar Matkita Suzuki in October, placing him next to reigning AMA Supercross and AMA Motocross Champion Dungey.

Metcalfe’s talent and speed led him to be the natural choice to fill out the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team. His skills and the smooth power of the RM-Z450 will surely be a strong match, and success will surely be the order of business in 2011.

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.

The 2011 AMA Supercross Championship kicks off at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., on Jan. 8.
