Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team
Restoring Yamaha’s status as a key player in the FIM Enduro World Championship during the previous two seasons, the Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team are Yamaha’s official representatives in both the Enduro 2 and Enduro 1 classes of the 2018 series. Collecting eight class victories and an impressive total of 24 podium results since 2016, the team retain their solid rider line-up for 2018 with France’s Loïc Larrieu and Manxman Jamie McCanney set to battle for top honours in their respective Enduro 2 and Enduro 1 classes.
For a third consecutive season the Outsiders Yamaha Racing Official Enduro Team is managed by Marc Bourgeois - a former international enduro racer with a long and successful association with Yamaha. Starting in 2005 Marc enjoyed a solid career collecting a total of 15 podium finishes in the Enduro World Championship. In 2016, Bourgeois was appointed as Team Manager of Yamaha’s Official Enduro team. Remaining in charge of Outsiders the Yamaha Official Enduro Team, the highly-experienced Frenchman continues to offer his knowledge to benefit the team’s two riders.
Relying on the vast experience of Technical Coordinator Yann Lozano - a GP mechanic who has worked with some of the greatest names in the recent history of motocross - the team will attack the 2018 season with two Yamaha machines. Continuing the development of their WR450F for Enduro 2 competition, they will also enter the 2018 Enduro 1 World Championship with the updated version of their WR250F racing machine.
