Now entering their ninth season of rider and team support, Xpress Coffee have finalised their #FuelledByXpressCoffee stable of riders for 2017. The Milton Keynes-based bean-to-cup specialists are proud to be involved with such a talented set of riders from the youngest in Josh and Saffy Whatley to the longest-serving #FuelledByXpressCoffee rider, McAMS Yamaha’s James Ellison.
Once again the rider support in the British Superbike paddock crosses from youth to experience, a hallmark of the #FuelledByXpressCoffee ethos. James Ellison is joined by fellow #FuelledByXpressCoffee rider Michael Laverty at McAMS Yamaha. The two vastly experienced former MotoGP riders are sure to be challenging for honours in the MCE British Superbike Championship as the Team Traction Control outfit makes the step up to the blue riband class of domestic racing.
After sealing his second championship in three seasons, South African Jordan Weaving steps up to the STK1000 class to make his mark on the big bikes with Lee Hardy Racing. Weaving isn’t the only rider supported in the class as long-time #FuelledBy rider Tom Tunstall returns to challenge for honours once again in the ultra-competitive class.
Two riders that are still waiting to confirm their rides for this season, but retain the absolute support of Xpress Coffee, are Ulster’s former STK1000 Champion Josh Elliott and fellow countryman Andy Reid. Both riders of exceptional talent but unfortunately, as yet, are not in a position to confirm their plans for 2017.
Away from the British paddock, Xpress Coffee are proud to continue their support of Josh and Saffy Whatley as they take on the might of Europe in Spain as they forge their path towards their Grand Prix dream one step at a time, with the season off to an incredible start with both Josh and Saffy recently being crowned World Minibike Champions in Spain recently.
Updates on the #FuelledByXpressCoffee riders will appear here across the season so be sure to keep coming back to see how the season unfolds for our talented riders.
