Silly season continues with the Craig Chamberlain’s SevenSeven2 team releasing a pretty impressive line-up of riders for the 2019 AMCA Championship season!
There have been plenty of rumours flying around lately about a certain someone joining the team, but we will get onto that later. First up, in the MX2 class, there is Luke Dean, This will be Luke’s third season with 772 and, after racing a two-stroke last season, it is still up in the air whether he will be riding a four-stroke or not next season.
“2019 will be my third year with 772 and each year the team has grown with better and bigger sponsors each year,” Dean said. “My last two years haven’t been the greatest with injuries, but before we know we had the speed it was just one of those things. I can’t wait to be back under the awning for 2019 and hopefully have a successful year for myself and the team.”
Joining Luke in MX2 will be enduro rider Lee Sealey, who completed his first season of AMCA last year and finished an impressive fifth overall. “I’m very pleased to be continuing with the SevenSeven2 Yamaha UK team,” Sealey told MX Vice exclusively. “After my first season of racing motocross it’s easy to say I’m keen to get started again. I’m also looking forward to working with John Price in helping me getting a better result next year. One thing we don’t quite know yet is which stroke I’ll be racing but there’s still plenty of testing that needs to be done on both.”
Pip Davies will contest the MX1 class for the team. Davies will be headlining on the Wildmoore SevenSeven2 YZ450F, as well as team boss Craig Chamberlain who will continue to take part in the vets championship. Jack Wankling, who ended second in the BSMA Nationals this season, will slot into MX2 as well and attempt to shake things up in the AMCA Championship.
Richy Roberts and Harvey Matthews have jumped on the 125s to contest a new class within the AMCA, the 125 championship, and will be joined by a surprise signing, Kristian Whatley. We’re hoping that the 125 class is going to be somewhat of an entertaining race series to watch this year!
SevenSeven2 are still on the look out for 65 and 85 youth riders. If you are on the search for a team, get in touch with the team by using the following email address: [email protected]
