“Entering the new season, we are really confident our riders will be strong championship contenders in three different classes of the 2018 Enduro World Championship. With the Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team, this will be the third consecutive year the team will be officially representing us in the series. With Marc Bourgeois guiding the team, both Loïc and Jamie have shown their immense potential. Loïc had a strongeason last year, he topped the International Six Days Enduro and finished second in the championship. For 2018 he will stay aboard the WR450F machine with the goal to become Enduro 2 World Champion. Jamie had some great battles last year and took his fight for the title to the very last GP. We expect Jamie to be a top performer in the 2018 Enduro 1 World Championship. In the Enduro Junior class Yamaha will be officially represented by newcomer Albin Elowson. With the support of Johansson Yamaha Official Junior Enduro Team’s experienced crew we believe Albin is capable of winning the title in 2018.”
