Toseland takes in Yamaha success at Daytona

Toseland takes in Yamaha success at Daytona

James Toseland was in Florida last weekend, enjoying a Yamaha triumph in the annual Daytona 200 race.

Having endured a tough preseason so far and having worked constantly on his physical fitness over the winter, James Toseland took a well deserved break last weekend as he visited the United States to watch the Daytona 200 race.

Toseland spent time meeting with Yamaha USA management and with staff from his personal leather suppliers BKS, who will be remodeling his livery this season to incorporate the new colours and logos of the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team.

The English MotoGP star enjoyed Friday night’s racing, witnessing a one-two success story for Yamaha, as Ben Bostrom crossed the line first and his team-mate Josh Herrin followed him home in second place at the end of the 200 mile contest.

Satellite Yamaha rider Toseland will be back in the States later this year for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix at Laguna Seca on the 3rd-5th July weekend and the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix on the 28th-30th August weekend.
