After being a single-rider squad for the previous two seasons, in 2015 Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing will be an expanded team with the addition of new team member Blake Baggett riding alongside James Stewart.
With Baggett joining Stewart on the Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing team, the squad should be able to increase its R&D capabilities with both riders testing and sharing information and development feedback.
After being one of the elite riders in the 250cc class over the last couple of years, Baggett is moving up to the 450cc class for the first time as well as joining Yoshimura Suzuki. To date in his young career, Baggett’s most impressive highlight was winning the 2012 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
Yoshimura Suzuki Team Manager Mike Webb returns this year to continue the building heritage of the team. Webb has already led Suzuki to 22 major Off-Road Championships as that team’s longtime manager and he is eager to add Supercross and Motocross titles to his lengthy and impressive resume.
As Suzuki’s Supercross/ Motocross team continues to evolve, Stewart, Baggett and the rest of the crew benefit greatly from their extensive partnership with Yoshimura, the performance giant behind Suzuki’s series-leading 13 championships in AMA Superbike racing.
