The following is a release from Thor…Thor Motocross is proud to announce the signing of Rockstar Makita Suzuki rider Brett Metcalfe. Metcalfe re-joins the Thor/Parts Unlimited team following an impressive showing during the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Motocross Championship where he finished second overall to his 2011 teammate, Ryan Dungey.
“All of us at Thor are excited to have Metty back on the team,” Thor G.M. Dave Gowland said. “He is a great guy both on and off the track, and as everyone saw this summer is an extremely talented racer. We’re all very excited for the upcoming 2011 season.”
The Australian born rider was with Thor in 2007 and 2008 as a member of the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team, before spending 2009-2010 with the GEICO Powersports Honda race team. Metcalfe makes a great addition to an impressive 2011 lineup that already includes Ryan Villopoto (Monster Energy Kawasaki) and the entire Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki race team.
The entire Thor MX team is eagerly awaiting the start of the 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series that kicks off on January 8th from Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
