Dylan Leary who has missed the last two racing seasons due to injury, was given the opportunity to race for the newly formed Proformance Kawasaki Racing team based on his competitive potential and genuine sportsmanship. Dylan was thrilled to be provided the opportunity and he has thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Proformance Kawasaki Racing team. He loved the team atmosphere and equipment provided. Dylan had been steadily improving his race results this season with a best position of 5thplace at Broadford (round 3).
“This may come as a shock to a few people but my head is not where it needs to be competing at a professional level”, said Dylan.
Proformance Kawasaki Racing Team Manager, Travis Whitten said “Dylan has put 110% into this season so far. Training hard, eating right and doing everything he can. But unfortunately all that work and effort can’t make you want to go racing, it has to be something you truly want to do for yourself. The team is sad to not have Dylan as a part of it moving forward. His upbeat attitude around the team pit will be missed and we truly wish Dylan all the best with his future endeavours”.
Proformance Kawasaki Racing Team will continue to work hard for the remainder of the season with Alex Morris to compete alone in the upcoming Coolum round of the MX Nationals (round 5). Team member Matt Ryan, who was previously injured, is currently training on his KX250F and he is feeling comfortable at this stage to make his return after round 5.
