It's Eli's mechanic from when he was with Factory Connection. Good short listen. I thought on the pulp mx show last Monday that Craig was still going to ride the 450? They also made it sound like it was pretty much a done deal with AP going to KTM. Also said kawi and Anderson have been in talks.
Yamaha is setting up to rule the American MX/SX world in 2022 with the riders they are fielding.
Eli isn’t going over there for more money…now things start to make sense how he hasn’t been the same guy the last 2 championships.
If Yamaha allows him to make the changes and settings he needs to feel comfortable, we could very well see him end up with both titles next year and maybe even bring the #1 plate to Yamaha with some new inspiration this summer.
Im glad to see this switch because it means there is still something there and he still wants to win. He could have mailed in 2 more years of top 3 championships on Kawi with his eyes closed, as demonstrated in 20 MX and 21 SX.
At least this should make things more interesting, he has been pretty boring.
