Official: Max Anstie inks deal with Star Yamaha

Words: Press Release

Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing is pleased to announce a multiyear deal with Max Anstie to compete for top honors in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, Pro Motocross, and SuperMotocross World Championships.

The British rider joins the championship-winning program and makes a long-awaited return to the team, making his debut aboard the all-new YZ250F at the upcoming Round 5 of the Pro Motocross Championship in Southwick, Massachusetts, on June 29.

Anstie made his pro debut in Monster Energy AMA Supercross with the team in 2010. He brings with him a wealth of experience and has enjoyed success in multiple championships overseas. Chasing the dream of being a champion in the U.S., he has shown strength over the past two seasons in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250SX East Championship. Anstie scored his first win in the series last year at the East/West Showdown in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and was a consistent podium finisher that saw him complete the 2023 season third in the 250SX East standings. This year he built on that success in the class with a runner-up finish at the eastern regional season opener at the Detroit Supercross and added another win to his resume in Philidelphia.

“This marks a new chapter in my career and one that I’m motivated to take full advantage of. I’ve got unfinished business in the United States, especially in Pro Motocross, and I know that Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing will help me tick those boxes. From Southwick on, we’ll start taking steps to understand the YZ250F in order to make a title run in 2025. I’ve never felt more ready.”
