The British-based iFly JK Yamaha team have had a reshuffle following the news that top rider Brad Todd broke a bone in his neck in a crash while testing last week.
Todd, who recently beat Cedric Soubeyras and Alex Lupino in the Bologna Supercross, told MotoHead that he broke the C6 vertebrae in his neck. “So I will be out a few weeks but will luckily be able to get fully fit for the outdoors,” he said.
The team have drafted in French Arenacross star Julien Lebeau to join Dan Reardon in the UK Arenacross championship which kicks off in Manchester on January 6.
Julien is currently at the front of the German AX Championship and is bang on form right now, so should be a threat in the UK series.
