Colt Brinkerhoff’s Ironman Adventure

Back in October Colt Brinkerhoff headed East for the GNCC Ironman. We caught up with him about his adventure and got the scoop on what happened while he was there. Colt injured his wrist and wasn’t able to finish the race, but posted that he was certainly keeping redemption in mind for the ’14 season.

Check out the release video! Assembled in the USA (Georgia) the new YFZR features some cool redesigned features and some ready-to-race components (including Maxxis tires right out of the box 21s and 20s). It comes in a standard Yamaha blue and white color scheme which looks pretty nice and a badass orange version!
