Gino Aponte is a local pro who has put on the work and says that he's ready fort the challenge, at last years MXoN he hurt his clavicle and was not able to ride the finals.
Zach Osborne moved to the UK to race for the Utag Yamaha team and his results are starting to show that the move was a good one. At last years MXoN he was the revelation, being the under dog, he showed strong results which landed team Puerto Rico in the finals.
Juan Font is a local pro who has been quietly working on his speed and stamina, he is a young kid, but he's sure that he can ride with the best.
The Dixon Yamaha Team was founded and is still run by former Yamaha GP mechanic Steve Dixon. Steve was also manager of the Yamaha UK MX team in years leading up to the formation of the team in 2002. In 2004 the team adopted the 'Bike It...' prefix as the the large distribution and manufacturing company joined the team as title sponsors. A fresh look and team name has been adopted for 2008, as Bike It have launched the new UTAG product, so the team becomes UTAG Yamaha.
