MotoConcepts Press Release: Via Mike Genova, President, MotoConcepts, Inc.

MotoConcepts Racing is sad to announce the termination of their contractual agreement with Christophe Pourcel for the 2011 Motocross Series as of June 13, 2011.

The decision was made based on Christophe Pourcel not meeting the contractual demands and obligations to the team and the many sponsors who supported
him in his effort to compete in the very stacked and competitive 450 class.

Team owner Mike Genova commented, "It's a real bummer for everybody involved, our team, mechanics, DV, myself and all of our very supportive sponsors, to include FMF, FMF Energy Drink, Yamaha, GYTR, Oneal, MotoConcepts, Enzo and many others who worked hard to make this deal happen. Unfortunately Christophe was not able to get where he needed to be to feel confident and competitive, and for whatever reason, he was not willing to put in the necessary homework and effort to get there. It's too bad, because all of us at MotoConcepts and our supportive sponsors wanted it to work, and  I am very sorry and apologetic that it didn't."

The team is regrouped and very committed to doing everything possible to push their very talented and competitive riders, Tommy Hahn, Kyle Chisholm and Mariana Balbi to a successful and safe 2011 Motocross series.
