Russian Vsevolod Brylyakov is to leave the Dixon Kawasaki MX2 GP team as he has signed on to race a Yamaha YZ250F throughout the 2018 season. The talented Russian will be joining Jago Geerts under the Kemea Yamaha Official MX2 awning where he hopes to achieve the same sort of success that took him to his first Grand Prix podium, which he achieved at the MXGP of Mexico in April 2016.
At the tender age of twenty-two-years old, Vsevolod Brylyakov will enter his final year in MX2 with the full-support of the Grand Prix winning team, Kemea Yamaha Official MX2. He will be based in Mol, Belgium, less than 20-minutes from his young teammate, Geerts, and 45-minutes from the team’s workshop in Genk.
Brylyakov raced six rounds of the FIM MX2 World Championship this year – of which he posted lap-times inside the top-three in Timed Practice on three occasions – before withdrawing from the series with a shoulder injury. He has since undergone surgery where his shoulder socket has been strengthened and made more secure, and hopes to be back on the bike in November this year.
