Arnaud Tonus to race 2018 YZ450F

Arnaud Tonus to race 2018 YZ450F

Wilvo Yamaha MXGP are extremely excited to announce that Arnaud Tonus, who currently sits tenth in the FIM Motocross World Championship standings, will be one of the first riders to pilot the all-new 2018 YZ450F in anger.

Loket, the circuit that will play host to the Grand Prix of the Czech Republic this weekend, will be the venue for this iconic moment. The slick, hard-pack soil will mesh perfectly with the refined skillset that Tonus possesses. The 2018 YZ450F features a new engine and frame, so will only aid #4 in his charge towards the podium this weekend.

A video of Arnaud Tonus in action aboard the ground-breaking machine can be found on this link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=B2e_O3fylQE. You can, alternatively, find out more information by following Wilvo Yamaha MXGP on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Louis Vosters (Team Manager): “I am very pleased that Yamaha Motor Europe has given us the confidence to start using the YZ450F 2018 bike at this point in the season. Yamaha put a lot of effort in to have the 2018 bikes already available for us. They put a lot of energy into it along with several partners like Akrapovic, KYB and GYTR.

“Our crew worked extremely hard to get the bikes ready at GP level for the next races. From the first test, Arnaud Tonus was very positive about how the bike responds and the power of this totally-redesigned engine. We are very much looking forward to the upcoming weekend in the Czech Republic for the thirteenth MXGP round of the season.”

Tonus secures maiden MXGP podium

Arnaud Tonus and Shaun Simpson, of Wilvo Yamaha MXGP, descended on the scenic venue of Pietramurata this past weekend, as the Italian circuit played host to the fifth round of the FIM Motocross World Championship. Tonus, a race winner in his homeland seven days prior, arrived at the hillside with some momentum in his corner.

The Swiss pilot put that to good use in the two practice sessions on Saturday morning, as he recorded lap times that put him inside of the top three each time. That, unfortunately, did not quite translate to a great start in the qualifying heat, as he rounded lap one on the cusp of the top fifteen and with a considerable amount of work to do.

Recording lap times that were competitive with the leaders, Tonus carved through the field with some elegant riding and secured the ninth pick of the gate for the following day. Shaun Simpson, on the other hand, was not so fortunate. Although he started outside of the top ten, he made some quick moves to advance to ninth almost immediately. ‘24’ was competitive in that position until a small crash curtailed his efforts and left him in eighteenth at the chequered flag.

A brilliant start in the first MXGP moto left Arnaud Tonus inside of the top three at the end of lap one and right with a pair of former champions. Tonus shadowed his competitors in a calculated manner through the first half of the race, then pounced on the rider in the runner-up position on lap twelve of nineteen. Tonus then started to erase the deficit between himself and the race leader, but ran out of time. Just two seconds separated him from the eventual winner at the end of the thirty-minute moto!

Tonus was restricted by a mediocre start in the second outing, but again showed good pace whilst edging closer to the top five. After spending a majority of the encounter in sixth, he eventually crossed the line in seventh and secured third overall on the weekend. The thirty-six points that he achieved also saw him jump to eighth in the series standings.

Wilvo Yamaha MXGP dominate in Indonesia

The FIM Motocross World Championship marched into Indonesia for the first time in twenty years this past weekend, as the Pangkal Pinang circuit played host to round two of nineteen. The Wilvo Yamaha MXGP duo were braced to tackle some challenging conditions, thanks to some heavy rain, as the circuit resembled a quagmire on Saturday morning.

That fact was taken into account when the promoters elected to run just a single practice session on the first day of the event. Although conditions were far from pleasant, Shaun Simpson and Arnaud Tonus didn’t hesitate when it came to tackling the circuit and reaped the benefits. Simpson, who was hoping to rebound from a luckless outing in Qatar, recorded a time that was so impressive that it secured him pole position for the following day. Arnaud Tonus was just eight spots further back in ninth.

Thankfully the rain held off overnight, so conditions had drastically improved when the riders took to the starting line at midday on Sunday. A handful of sections threatened to swallow up both man and machine, admittedly, but hopes were high when the gates dropped. Although Simpson got pinched off heading into turn one, he managed to hold a tight line and emerge on the cusp of the top five. The Scotsman then wasted no time at all and searched for a way around those who sat between him and the top spot.

It took just one lap for Simpson to dispose of the rider in fourth place, then he quickly broke into the top three. Just two laps after that he was already making a run at the leader and, despite some stiff competition, he made the move and broke free almost immediately. Thanks to some lap times that were almost three seconds quicker than those who trailed him, Simpson established a lead of seven seconds throughout the moto and claimed the sixth MXGP moto win of his career! The victory was also a first for Wilvo Yamaha MXGP.

Whilst that was going on at the head of the field, Arnaud Tonus struggled to overcome a mediocre start and was then restricted by a mistake on lap two. He immediately attempted to make up the ground that he had lost and, despite two more mistakes, made seven passes through the remaining laps whilst en route to fifteenth in the moto. Tonus was eager to rebound in the second MXGP moto, but did not get that chance. Heavy rainfall meant that conditions deteriorated to a point that forced the race director to cancel the final race.

That decision left Shaun Simpson and the Wilvo Yamaha MXGP team with the overall victory! In just their second Grand Prix together, the pair garnered maximum points and jumped to eighth in the series standings. Arnaud Tonus sits fourteenth in the championship heading into the third round of the series, which is set to take place in Argentina in two weeks.

Shaun Simpson: “It is one of those things where you have to go out there, race what is there and go with the decisions that have been made. In the first moto I just really gelled with the track, had some really nice lines going and felt comfortable on the bike. After I passed [Tim] Gajser for fourth, I just felt like I was going to win that race. I knew it was going to be that easy and it was! Once I got into the lead for the second time I managed to make it stick. It was a nice moto; I really enjoyed it.”

Arnaud Tonus: “It was a rough moto for me. I had a pretty good start and then a big crash in the second lap. I came back a few positions and crashed two times, but I kept going and finished fifteenth. I will keep grinding. Those kinds of races are a part of the job, so I need to learn from it and come back stronger in Argentina.”

 

The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team Pushes Through RedBud

Corona, Calif. (July 4, 2016) – The sixth round of the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship brought the Monster Energy/ Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team to Buchanan, Michigan on Saturday. Once again, Adam Cianciarulo started the day off strong with the fastest times in the 250 class during morning practices. Building off of this momentum, the team prepared themselves for battle.

Savatgy Carries On
In the first moto, Joey Savatgy found himself battling it out for the lead. Throughout the race, he placed pressure on the leader and pushed himself to close the gap that separated the two. He would finish the first race in 2nd but remained hungry for the overall. The second moto dealt him some rather unexpected circumstances. Despite what was thrown at him, he continued to get back on his bike and return the race. Finishing the race and demonstrating true sportsmanship, Joey left RedBud in 7th.

“I spent the time off working on my entire program as I have all season long. In the first moto I was close to taking the win towards the end and tried to make a charge but it didn’t happen for me this time. The track is really loamy so the smallest mistake takes a big chunk of time from you. Overall it was a good moto but I’m here to win.”

Forkner Remains in the Fight
Week after week, all eyes continue to fall on Austin Forkner. His impressive ride is a constant reminder that the rookie remains a serious contender in the series and future of the sport. In the first moto, he flew by the competition and grabbed the holeshot. Consistently riding in the front of the line during both motos, he finished the day in 8th. Austin remains eager to lead the pack across the checkers this season.

“In the first moto I earned the first holeshot of my pro career which was great. I ran up front for a little bit and fought hard for the lead. The first 20-25 minutes I was in third, unfortunately towards the end of the race I was pushed wide and passed by two riders at once and I ended up bringing it home in sixth. In the second moto I struggled a little at the beginning of the race and it held me back. I still came back for 10th so I’m pretty happy with that. I’ll be working on my consistency and getting rid of a few mistakes and I’ll be up front and show these guys what I’ve got.”

AC Makes Headway
Motivated by his successful morning, Adam Cianciarulo entered both motos prepared and ready to give it his all. Staying smooth and consistent, he was able to ride among the leaders. His strong performance at RedBud earned him 6th overall for the day. Since returning to racing, he continues to battle through obstacles and remains extremely positive and optimistic. Driven by this weekend’s results, he looks forward to performing even better as the series goes on.

“The weekend was a step in the right direction. I’ve had good starts and been going fast lately but a few errors have hindered my results a bit. I was the fastest in qualifying again which is always good for my confidence and the motos were all about focusing on riding my race. I’m a little upset with my starts but this was a really good building week heading to Southwick.”

Tonus Displays Progress
Arnaud Tonus earned his best results of the season at this weekend’s race. He found himself among the leaders and pushed himself to stay towards the front of the pack in both motos. Proving he has what it takes to ride in front, he is determined to return there every weekend. While his 9th place finish may be his best so far, watch for him to continue to rise higher in the oncoming rounds of the series.

“This was my best weekend so far. Every weekend has been better than the last and I felt really good in the second moto today. I’m very happy with how I rode, I just need a little work on the starts and I’ll be at the front where I belong. There’s still work to be done but we’re moving in the right direction.”

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Finishes In The Top 10

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Finishes In The Top 10

Corona, Calif. (April 18, 2016) –  The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team arrived at The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis looking to advance in the Eastern Regional 250SX Championship point standings. Wasting no time,Tyler Bowers and Gannon Audette quickly set the tone for the day during qualifying. Tyler logged the fastest lap in early morning qualifying and both riders found themselves advancing to the Main Event. The evening would end with Gannon finishing in 5th and Tyler in 9th.

Bowers Stays Hungry
Finishing qualifying with the fastest lap time, Tyler Bowers quickly advanced to the evening’s Main Event. In the final race, a collision with another rider would set him back a few positions. Tyler finished his night in 9th place and remains in 5th in the point standings.

“My weekend started pretty good,” said Bowers. Early in the day I was in the top three, my Kawasaki felt really good, and I sorted out a few minor issues in my heat. The big pileup in the first turn of the main completely stopped me and straight off I knew I had my work cut out for me. I put my head down and started clicking off passes. Unfortunately the hard push at the beginning of the race gave me arm pump towards the end and I wasn’t able to finish where I feel I belong. Time to put it behind us and look towards next weekend.”

Audette Stays Focused 

In the St. Louis Main Event, Gannon Audette nearly took the holeshot aboard his KX250F. Continuing to rely on his speed, he pushed himself throughout the entire night to remain at the front of the pack. After falling behind due to an entanglement with another rider, he quickly began climbing his way back to the top. Finishing strong, Gannon Audette placed 5th in the Main and now resides in 6th in the point standings.

“It was another good weekend. We made progress in practice and went into the night show eighth fastest. Learned a bit more in my heat where I finished fourth. In the main I had another great start in second until a rider passed me and then almost immediately stalled in my line. While avoiding him I caught a tough block and ended up with a minor tip over. From there I just tried to put my laps together and came home with a fifth. Overall I feel it was a good weekend, not quite the podium I wanted but it’s hard to complain about a top five. I’d like to give a special thanks to the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team for this incredible opportunity, I’m really looking forward to Foxboro next weekend.”

Tyler Bowers would take yet another heat win for the season and Arnaud Tonus would advance onto the main as well, finishing close behind in Heat 1.

Unfortunately I was tied up with another rider in Turn 1, but was able to charge through, ride my race and keep on my lines. I’m really happy with my fourth place finish and I’m looking forward to coming back from the break!”

Tonus Eager For Redemption
Arnaud Tonus had his eyes set on redemption and victory this weekend in Detroit, taking his heat race by storm with his fellow teammate; advancing into the main.

“The weekend had its ups and downs, I rode a little tight early on but started to get my rhythm later in the day.

I’m looking forward to Detroit and moving forward.”

Bowers Takes First Heat Victory Of The Season In Toronto

I tried to stick with the same plan and keep it smooth for the Main Event, when I decided to make my move for the lead I made a mistake and went down. I picked myself up and fought back for as many points as possible. All things considered I’m happy to have my Heat Race win.”
