Phil Nicoletti and Chris Blose will join the newly formed N-Fab TiLUBE Yamaha team in their two-rider premier 450 class program for 2013.
The riders and team will contest both the ultra competitive AMA supercross and motocross series, with round one of the supercross series kicking-off on 5 January at Anaheim’s Angel Stadium in California.
Team manager Allan Brown is excited about their new team and selected riders, both piloting the YZ450F for 2013.
“At 24 years of age, Chris Blose brings 42 main event starts and a good balance of youth and experience to the team,” said Brown. “This is my second year working with Chris and we are looking to continue our streak of main event appearances from last season.
Brown says he see’s the potential Nicoletti holds and believes both he and Blose are capable of laying down consistently solid results throughout the year.
“23-year-old Phillip Nicoletti showed tremendus potential in 2012, capping off the motocross season with a string of top 10 finishes in the 450 class,” he added. “Both of these riders are capable of producing solid finishes week in and week out and I can’t wait to get the season started.”
Blose, Nicoletti and the entire N-Fab TiLUBE Yamaha team will continue their preparations in a bid to make an impressive debut come 5 January 2013.
