Chicopee, MA - Velocity 3 Yamaha, a team that came together only weeks before the opening round of Supercross, has released Kyle Chisholm from his contract.
During the time V3R experienced financial strains, as expected sponsors monies had not materialized, Kyle Chisholm was presented with an opportunity to change teams while remaining on his preferred, and accustomed, YZ450F. Kyle has been nothing short of a true professional for V3R and the team honored his request for release. Kyle will join the JGRMX team for the SX season in place of the injured Josh Grant. We know Kyle will have a great season and wish him the best.
Velocity 3 Yamaha will continue its racing efforts (a decision to fill Kyle’s spot has not be determined) and will have their full support behind Bobby Kiniry. Bobby Kiniry is having his best Supercross season; making the main in all but one round. Kiniry has been up front at times throughout the season and the New Yorker brings a level of personal determination that surely will improve his results as the series shifts to East Coast.
V3R thanks those supporters of the team including Yamaha Motor Corporation, Yamalube, GYTR, ENZO, DRD, Dunlop, Costa Rica Unlimited, Ironclad, Ride Engineering, Moto-Master, Twin Air, Athena, Cycra, DID, Dubya, ICW, 360 Unlimited, Pro Taper, Supersprox, Works Connection, Matrix, Hinson, Motoseat, Renagade Fuel, STS Graphics, and Freegun Underwear.
