In 2009, Rock River Powersports owner Mike DuClos felt helpless when his first supported rider made the transition to the pro ranks with little to no support of his race program. The Rock River Racing pro team was quickly formed in order to provide a stepping stone for amateur riders that were moving up into the professional ranks. The following year, the team partnered with Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA for support of their own riders and to provide trackside services at all professional events, offering parts & service for purchase by any rider aboard a Yamaha race bike. After multiple years of success and increased notoriety in the motocross industry, CycleTrader.com joined the team in November of 2013 as the official title sponsor. Thanks to the addition of CycleTrader to the Rock River Racing program, the team underwent a total branding overhaul and has positioned themselves as a key and respected program in the world of Supercross & Motocross racing. The addition of higher level athletes in 2014 saw record performance results in the Monster Energy/AMA Supercross series and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
