Tech Feature: Behind the Team Bikes
Welcome to the final installment of our look at the team bikes that make up the pro pits at the Canadian Motocross Nationals. We thought we'd save the best for last as we check out the Yamaha YZ450F of former MX2 and MX1 Champion, Dusty Klatt, of the powerhouse Toyota/Yamaha/Red Bull/Blackfootdirect.com/Fox Racing team(now there's a mouthfull!). The Blackfoot bikes are consistently the trickest machines in the pits and Dusty's steed is no exception. With Colton Facciotti and Klatt going 1-2 in the championship there's no doubt that these bikes perform as well as they look.
As well, Klatt's mechanic knows a thing or two about taking a stock bike and making it championship worthy. As the mechanic for all of Jean-Sebastien Roy's Canadian Championships, Andrew McLean has pretty much seen it all. Let's take a look at what makes a championship winning bike like this stand out from your stock machine.
