Haiden Deegan has agreed on terms with Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing. The multi-year contract will see one of the sport’s top up-and-coming riders on one of the most sought-after seats in the US motocross paddock.
The Californian has multiple amateur titles and is a great addition to the team’s amateur motocross program.
At the young age of 15, Deegan is already one of the most popular riders in the sport with his on-track success and engaging personality. For the son of motocross icon Brian Deegan, racing is in his blood, and he shares his father’s work ethic and passion for the sport.
Haiden has won championships at every level that he has raced, including winning four in a single day. In addition to his impressive number of titles, at 10 years old, Deegan became the youngest rider in the world to land a backflip on a motorcycle.
“We’re really happy to have a rider of Haiden’s calibre join our team,” said team manager Jeremy Coker. “He has a great presence on and off the track and is a proven championship contender. We look forward to the upcoming season and look to bring home some more #1 plates!”
Haiden Deegan: “I’m excited to ride with champions and learn from them at Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing. I feel good on the bike and have a lot of work to do, and I am looking forward to it!”
