Jamie McCanney has announced that he has left the Yamaha fold after five years of competition together.

Revealing the split on social media, McCanney did not announce his future plans. “After five years with Yamaha, our journey has come to an end,” McCanney wrote.

“I would like to thank everyone involved over the past five years and I am thankful for the opportunities and amazing experiences along the way.”

Jamie hit the headlines earlier this year after he was forced to retire from the 2021 Dakar Rally. It was a disappointing blow after the Manxman had shown impressive consistency and already made huge improvements over his previous year’s performance.

During his time with Yamaha, he has enjoyed plenty of success including twice runner-up in the world championships, Classic podiums and two victories. “I have made friends for life and made memories I’ll never forget,” McCanney added.

Yamaha Racing has so far not commented on McCanney’s departure.
