Australia Names Replacement MX2 Rider

MotoOnline.com.au is reporting that Australia has named Luke Clout as a replacement for Jay Wilson, who was injured in Europe earlier this week.

Clout, 20, represented Team Australia in the MX2 Class at the Motocross of Nations last year in Latvia, going 21-22. According to MotoOnline.com.au, he will ride with support from Kemea Yamaha, the same team Wilson was to ride for.

“I’m pretty excited,” Clout told MotoOnline.com.au this morning, preparing to fly to Europe today. “Obviously I’ve been riding a lot of supercross, but coming off a solid season of 10 rounds in motocross, having a little break from outdoors could possibly benefit me."
