Team L & M San Manuel Yamaha announced their 2009 Supercross team today at the Kress building in Hollywood, California. The big announcement was the signing of James Stewart, who will be riding the 450cc Yamaha. James team-mate, also riding in the 450 Supercross class, is friend Kyle Chisholm.
Below you’ll see a short video including Larry Brooks, co-owner of Team L & M, and the team’s Manager, and then you’ll see James and Kyle talking about how they feel. The photos show member of San Manuel, which gave an interesting message of one of their primary goals – helping kids stay away from drugs and alcohol, and showing hard work can make a difference in their lives, the next photos are James and Kyle, the Factory YZ 450 for 2009, and James posing on the bike.
Tomorrow is the first day James will ride the bike, and he isn’t waiting long for his first race – this Friday in Las Vegas at the US Open. James will also be competing in ESPN’s X Games 15, and other selected events as well this coming season.
