Yamaha Motor Corporation is most pleased and excited to have James Stewart and Josh Hill as part of the Yamaha Championship Family for the 2010 season as part of the Team San Manuel Yamaha/L&M.
A seven time AMA MX/SX Champion James brings a level of excitement to everything he does that is unrivaled in the world of Motocross and Supercross. With tremendous character and charisma on and off the track Stewart could easily be compared to Yamaha’s own 9 time Road Racing World Champion Valentino Rossi. Considered to be one of the best to ever throw a leg over a motorcycle, James returns on the all new 2010 YZ450F to defend his 2009 Supercross Title.
Josh Hill has joined the Team San Manuel Yamaha/L&M for 2010 season. Growing up as part of the Yamaha Amateur program Josh has spent the last three years as a member of Yamaha’s in house race team. A fresh start for 2010 with a new team has Josh looking to return to top form like he was when he won the Supercross Main Event in Minneapolis back in 2008.
“Our relationship with the Team San Manuel Yamaha/L&M has been great”, said Racing Division manager Keith McCarty. “With Supercross Championships in 2008 and 2009, we’re sure it will be an exciting season”.
Both Stewart and Hill will be racing Supercross on the all-new 2010 Yamaha YZ450F
