24 November 2020

Big news for British Motocross with Revo coming back to the paddock for 2021 with Dylan Walsh and James Dunn as REVO Seven Kawasaki.

Check out the official announcement below

REVO returns to the motocross paddock in 2021 with a two-rider REVO Seven Kawasaki team taking aim at major domestic MX1 silverware along with selected MXGP and EMX rounds.

After taking a year out of competition, Team Principal Mark Yates has joined forces with Kawasaki UK and the Seven clothing brand to sign Dylan Walsh and James Dunn.

Dylan won the ACU British Motocross MX2 Championship for REVO in 2019 and, with this years series cancelled, the 22 year old Kiwi is looking to make it back-to-back crowns by winning on a 450 in 2021.

As well as contesting the British championship on a pair of KX450s, Dylan and 25-year-old James will be active in Europe with Dylan targeting a number of European MXGP rounds while James could possibly compete in selected EMXOpen races.

Mark Yates Team Principal
This exciting opportunity has come about through Ross Burridge at Kawasaki UK and along with Roger Larsen at Seven we have put this great team together. We decided to take a year out in 2020 but REVO will be back in the paddock next season.

We have forged a great relationship and a strong bond with Dylan over the last two years. He had a number of opportunities but he wanted us involved. He knows he can trust us and that well do what we say we will when we say we will and that were looking out for his interests as well as our own.

I would say that Dylans probably the favourite next year. Considering that this will only be his second season on a 450 his raw speed is incredible. He is as fast as anyone out there and he will be a lot more race ready going into 2021. We are still the reigning MX2 British champions so Dylan is moving up into MX1 and looking for the double. Thats our main focus.

We all know how fast and stylish James can be when hes on his A game. He hasnt ridden this year so hes going to have to get his bike fitness built up but I know he is already training. Were not expecting him to set the world on fire but it would be nice to see him get up into the top five on occasion.
