Motocross News
Dylan Long continues on with CDR Yamaha in 2018


Posted: Monday, 27th November, 2017 : 1:43 PM - - 2,004 Reads




CDR Yamaha has retained the riding talents and services of Dylan Long for the 2018 racing season after both parties recently agreed to terms after an encouraging 2017 season with the team.

Long started the 2017 season slowly as he battled injury but has come alive in the back half of the year, improving at every round of the MX Nationals before really stepping up when the lights came on in Supercross to charge home in fourth place in the championship amongst a star-studded SX1 field.

His determination and hard work didn’t go unnoticed by the CDR Yamaha team and team owner, Craig Dack was satisfied with the progress Long had made and rewarded him with a new contract for the 2018 season.

“We can all see Dylan is an exceptional riding talent but his work ethic and dedication since his return from injury has impressed me the most and that is now coming through in his results,” Dack stated.

“Since he has got his body right, he has been on a steep learning curve and put in place the right things that will see him continue to climb the ladder of success in Australian motocross. We are proud to have Dylan back on board in 2018 and in fact retain the same team as this season as I think continuity plays a big part in our success and having the same riders and same technical people in place gives us a huge head start on our competition for the new season.

“We look forward to continuing our relationship with Dylan and believe his riding will step up a level or two in 2018 and show us what he has got,” Dack said.

Long, who hails from Benella in Victoria, is equally as excited as he knows with the might of the CDR Yamaha team behind him and the all new YZ450F underneath him, the 2018 season looms as his best yet.

“Racing for the CDR Yamaha team is the job every racer in Australia wants and despite my injury at the start of the year, I was going to fight with everything I had to hang onto it and I’m stoked to be with the team again in 2018,” Long enthused.

“I’m flattered that Craig and the team have stood by me while I was injured and now have me back next season. With the year to get to know each other and develop the bike, I can’t wait for 2018 to come as I think we have everything in place for it to be my most successful.

“Racing the new YZ450F in supercross has been amazing and I think the bike will be even better outdoors. I’m going to take a small break over Christmas and then it’s all in for the 2018 season and I’m out to chase some race and championship wins,” Long declared.

Long will again be partnered with two-time MX Nationals champion, Dean Ferris, in what is an extremely strong outfit. Both riders are in the prime of their careers and will be looking to put their YZ450F’s on the podium at every opportunity.

“Both riders have a good working relationship with each other and the team members,” Dack continued. “Like I said, the fact we have all bonded, know each other’s strengths and weakness as well as what makes each of us tick means we are full steam ahead with plans for next year and enter the season in really good shape. I know as a team we will come out swinging as we are all determined to carry on the success at CDR Yamaha,” Dack signs off.

The 10 round MX Nationals get under way in April next year.
