Phil Nicoletti is back! Well, not to racing quite yet, but he is returning to the Muc-Off/FXR/ClubMX Yamaha team in 2023.
The team announced today that Phil has re-signed with the team and will once again compete in the 250 Class in Monster Energy Supercross and the 450 Class in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross.
“The season started off great for me. It is a combination of a fast bike, good team dynamics and just being physically ready. I feel like I can do it all over again next year with the program at Club. I still enjoy racing, I still enjoy the grind – and I am still competitive, so I will give my best effort one more year.” said Nicoletti.
Nicoletti finished 12th in the 250SX East Region in 2022, but is currently sidelined after breaking his ulna during supercross. Nicoletti is expected to return to racing at some point this summer.
“Having Phil on the team is more than just racing. He has the vision and the experience to help elevate our program to the next level. He fits the mold of ClubMX, he is a hard worker and willing to do what it takes to be successful and extend his career. In terms of work ethic, he is a role model for all of the racers training at our facility. Phil is at home at ClubMX and that makes a huge difference when it comes time to race. Win, lose or draw – he knows we have his back.” Owner – Brandon Haas
