It's Official: Tedesco Not Joining Team Tedder

December 30, 2012 12:20pm
We reported on Thursday that veteran Ivan Tedesco would not be lining up at Anaheim 1. At that point in time it was unclear if Tedesco and Team Tedder/Monster Energy Racing had parted ways after it was reported earlier this month that the two had come to terms on a contract for 2013. We received word from team owner, Matt Tedder, yesterday that the team and Tedesco were not able to come to terms for the 2013 supercross season. Here is the official release regarding Tedesco from the team.

"Ivan Tedesco will not be joining Team Tedder/Monster Energy Racing for the 2013 Supercross season.  Everything was prepared for Ivan to line up at the 2013 A1 opener with full factory Pro Circuit race bikes. However, Ivan’s long-time outside sponsor funding fell thru. Team Tedder/Monster Energy Racing is still working with Ivan to take a run at the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship."
