The original Rock River Supercross/motocross professional team was formed in 2009 under the direction of Mike DuClos and team manager Christina Denney. In 2010, DuClos, owner of Rock River Powersports, a brick and mortar Yamaha dealership and arguably the largest amateur motocross race team on the amateur racing circuit, was brought into the Factory Yamaha Pro Race Program and offered a position to take an additional race team to AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross. The offer in essence allowed Rock River to become the first amateur team to present a program to kids from ages 3 ½ in amateur motocross, all the way through to the professional ranks. No other motocross team in history has that type of reach. Under the direction of DuClos and Denney, the riders signed up so far for the 2014 season include Ben Lamay, Alex Martin, and Greg Gehrer, with a fourth rider to be announced.

Team Cycle Trader/Rock River/Yamaha will compete in the complete Supercross Series, the AMA Outdoor Motocross Series and many of the Amateur Motocross Series throughout the year.

“We have worked so hard for the past five years, and we knew if we held on, good things would happen,” said DuClos. “CycleTrader.com is an amazing addition to our program, and we can’t thank them enough for the support they are giving us.”

CycleTrader.com is also launching a new “Pro Pit Corner” on its homepage where fans can interact with the team’s riders, manager, owner, and mechanics. This section will offer giveaways, tech tips, team tracking, an event calendar, and an exclusive sale link to the team’s factory Yamaha race bikes. Not to mention, features including the benefits of K&N’s High-Flow Air Filters and Performance Oil filters in the race bikes.

“This will be K&N’s 4th year supporting the Rock River Powersports Race Programs,” commented Johnny Jump, K&N’s Powersports Brand Manager. K&N is involved in every level of the program, from young boys and girls chasing their dreams through their dedication to the sport of motocross at amateur events, all the way through to the top racers of the Monster Energy Supercross Series. K&N has products in the bikes, in the motorhomes, in their semi-truck with our Heavy Duty air and oil filters, and even in the team Yamaha Rhino which takes the team and riders to and from the start finish line at the events. And part of our sponsorship relationship will include the ability to have a place on the website with tech tips concerning K&N products, how they work, cleaning, air filters oil filters, etc.”

Mike Guerra, Racing Division Department Manager at Yamaha Motor Corp., remarked, “We’re really excited about adding CycleTrader to the team and look forward to having another successful year of racing.”
