Livingston, CA. (March 16, 2017)- The 51FIFTY Energy Drink Yamaha Team is proud to announce Noah McConahy (#59) will join team riders Tyler Bowers (#52) and Hayden Mellross (#64) under the tent for the remainder of the Supercross series. The hard-working privateer earned a fill-in ride with the team earlier in the season and proved to be a valuable addition.
McConahy joined the team only riding the YZ250F for 2 days prior to the Oakland Supercross. His rear end spent more time on the dirt than on his seat during practice but he showed his mettle, determination and positive attitude. Working with team staff, studying lines/track map with Team Manager Craig Monty and Tyler Bowers, Noah made the Main that night. He'd then be involved in a first turn crash but charged from nearly last to a career-best 9th; expressing the 51FIFTY tagline, "Live the Madness, Never Quit!"
Noah brings bounds of enthusiasm to the test track, his personality adding to the team chemistry and it was in everyone's best interest to continue building together. With Bowers already back riding and Hayden Mellross fully healed from a hand injury, 51FIFTY Yamaha will field a three (3) rider team in Seattle and the remaining rounds of the 250 West Coast Supercross Series.
