Press Release

Livingston, CA – 51FIFTY is proud to announce the addition of Chris Plouffe to the team in advance of the Anaheim 2. 51FIFTY rider Jake Canada is still feeling the effects of a hard crash at the previous round in Phoenix and while he remains optimistic about racing Anaheim 2, it will ultimately be a race day decision.

“Our sponsors have been behind us 100% this year and we wanted to make sure the team and our sponsors were fully represented this weekend,” explains 51FIFTY owner Carlos Vieira. “While we are optimistic Jake will be able to race, we welcome Chris Plouffe to the team and are confident in his abilities on the track.”

Plouffe arrived in Phoenix last weekend with no support and his bone-stock #594 Honda CRF250.

“I got the call yesterday afternoon and can’t wait for this weekend,” says Chris Plouffe during a break from practice today at Milestone MX. “I felt I put in a strong ride last week and with the 51FIFTY support and a better race bike I expect better results at Anaheim. I really appreciate the opportunity and will make the most of it.”
