Default Dv to motoworld

     



On Sunday, May 21, 2000 — during his first year as a full-time Yamaha factory rider — David Vuillemin won the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Sacramento, California. Vuillemin would ride the blue machines for the Japanese motor company for the next five years before leaving to join the Boo-Koo Honda team for the 2006 AMA Amp’d Mobile Supercross Series. That made for TV marriage didn’t work out too well, Vuilleman and Boo-Koo Honda choosing to part ways during the 2006 stadium tour. For the first time in his professional career, David Vuillemin was out of work.

I suspect this pic is much more to DV's liking than what he faced with the BooKoo team.

I'm not trying to slam the Cobra in any way here. It's just that he got use to having all his work done for him and I don't think BooKoo was up to that. I hope the Motoworld ride works out. I like watching him ride.

Good for him. With factory support, I think he'll do well.

He looks funny on anything but a Yamaha

Wonder how much of DV's attitude was true on ROS....The show did not portray a good picture of him.

It's pretty funny he is riding for Motoworld racing. He had a pretty big throw down with Paul Lindsey last year.

My feelings for DV is kind of half and half.
From what I've heard of him back when he was on Factory Yamaha and he was sponsored by Fly Racing. I've heard he was really hard to work with. By this I mean he didnt really do pictures. I've heard he'd do about 3 or 4 laps for pictures than pit in for the rest of the day.

But I still like DV as a racer.
for DV and his Yamaha ride

The only thing missing from this picture is his wife holding a box of Krispy Kremes.
