This is a week to really work on your riding and spend quality time on every skill and technique, all the while in a great camp-style atmosphere with other MX riders and a focus on having fun! This is a week you won’t forget and you’ll be waiting for the next one!

5-DAY MOTO MEGA CAMP ENTRY FEE INCLUDES:

  • Five days of pre-season motocross coaching, training and fun!

Armed with a winning machine, and the knowledge and attitude which builds champions, Wilson Coolair Motul Factory Suzuki are pleased to confirm the team’s 2017 rider line up for Motocross and Supercross.

peters-suzuki-2017-1

Press Release

Following the team’s successful debut year aboard Factory Suzuki, next year will see ‘Team Yellow’ once again field two riders in the MX1 and SX1 categories, with American Kyle Peters and Queenslander Luke Wilson now confirmed that they’re set to contest the 2017 race season with Wilson Coolair Motul Factory Suzuki.

Wilson Coolair Motul Factory Suzuki Team Manager Neale Wilson shared his excitement in welcoming Peters back to Australia for the 2017 race season, and believes that this year was just the beginning of many successes for the Factory Suzuki effort.

“We are very pleased to be able to finally announce that Kyle will be joining us in 2017.” Wilson shared.

“As a team, we’ve had a long standing relationship with Kyle and he’s actually raced with us back when we were a privateer team – so when we saw his speed during the final two rounds of motocross and also in Supercross, it was an easy decision to offer him a position at Wilson Coolair Motul Factory Suzuki for 2017.

“We have already celebrated many podiums with Suzuki in what was our first year with the brand and it’s clear that they have provided us with a very competitive bike. With Kyle and Luke on yellow machines next year, we are very excited about going racing once again, and believe we have the ingredients required to win championships.

“I would like to thank our sponsors and partners who continue to support us, as well as Todd Waters for his contribution to our success in 2016. We wish Todd all the best with his future endeavours,” Wilson shared.

With the news now out, Peters, who raced to an MX1 moto win at his first Australian race for the year at Toowoomba, and also secured third place on the Round 3 SX1 podium in Supercross, says that he believes Wilson Coolair Motul Factory Suzuki is the perfect fit for him for 2017.

“When I first arrived in Australia it was meant to be for three weeks and I was just going to do a couple of races, but once I got there and I saw just how competitive both Motocross and Supercross were, I made sure people knew that I wanted to be back there racing full time in 2017,” Peters shared.

“To have the chance to race for Wilson Coolair Motul Factory Suzuki in 2017 is a dream come true. They proved this year they have everything you need to win, and I’m confident that together we can achieve more great things for the brand.

“I raced for Neale in Supercross in 2014, and Luke was also my teammate back then, so we know what works for us, we’ve had success together before and I’m just so excited to have the opportunity to come back to Oz and spend a full season racing there.”

Peter’s teammate Wilson will complete the team’s two rider line up for 2017, and shared that after such a successful first year with Suzuki, that he too believes he can step things up throughout next season.

“I’m pumped to have the opportunity to race for Factory Suzuki again next year,” Wilson shared.

“This year I set out some goals for myself, some of which I achieved, but I believe I have a lot more in me and I’m very excited to be able to continue chasing those goals in to 2017.

“We have very competitive machinery and the right people around us, which are two of the most important things needed to go racing, so I’m really looking forward to improving on my experiences from this season, and lining up at round one of the motocross ready to go in April next year.”

Stopp brake discs offer a comprehensive range for over 5000 road and off road motorcycles models dating back to 1980 up to current models.

DBFSGS391_cl   FrontWheelClose

The range includes brake pads for dirt bikes and calliper extension brackets for oversize/supermotard front disc conversions.

Stopp brake discs are manufactured using 420 stainless steel with added carbon content to ensure excellent braking performance and durability.

All Stopp floating brake discs feaure quality 7075 alloy carriers. The choice of 7075 alloy delivers superior strength while allowing for high quality anodisation and low weight. All rivets/buttons used on Stopp floating brake discs are stainless steel. 

The use of high quality metals and machining ensures that Stopp brake discs offer excellent stopping power for both road and off road bikes. The slotted wave design allows for better water dispersal in the wet, heat dissipation and ensures a more even wear as opposed to drilling which can often lead to a rippled effect across the surface of the disc. All Stopp Motorcycle brake discs are backed by a 24 month warranty. All discs carry the required minimum thickness markings essential for road registration.

RRP From $89.95 to $149.95.
