Yannis Irsuti has inked a deal to join the BUD Kawasaki Racing team. The young French rider is on an SX only deal to contest the SX tour championship Pro Hexis Sx championship in France.
The goal for the young French rider will be to contest the AMA West Coast Supercross championship next January which is an exciting prospect.
Irsuti: “Our goal is to get the back to back title in the French championship and to race the AMA west coast sx championship in January. I’m happy to race for bud racing, I spent 2 days at the bud racing compound in Magescq (close to hossegor) and I already feel good on the bike.
There is a good atmosphere in the team, we have a lot of work to do, a lot of testing to do in sx. I will race one round of the mx championship in pernes les fontaines in 2 weeks to learn the bike in a race even if it’s an mx race. I think this opportunity is the best way for me to make some progress and I would like to thank Stephane Dassé and all the sponsors. I’m gonna train with Brian Moreau in mx, he’s young but so fast. It will help me in sx for sure. We only have one month and a half to get ready for the french championship so it’s time to put the work in!”.
