It's Official: RV Headed to GPs | Kawasaki Announces 2015 Lineup - Racer X Online

Kawasaki made a big announcement this morning -- and not just the conformation that Ryan Villopoto is headed to the FIM World Motocross Championship in 2015. The brand also announced that they have signed Davi Millsaps and Wil Hahn to replace Villopoto and Jake Weimer at Monster Energy Kawasaki.

Kawasaki also announced today that Tyla Rattray will join Villopoto in the MXGP Class and that Dylan Ferrandis, Thomas Covington and reigning MX2 World Champion Jordi Tixier will race in MX2.

The 2015 Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki squad was also announced. Adam Cianciarulo returns for his second full season and will be joined by new-comers Tyler Bowers, Arnaud Tonus and Joey Savatgy. Rookie Chris Alldredge will make his full time debut in 2015.

The brand also announced their partnership with Discount Tire/TwoTwo Motorsports and Chad Reed and Josh Grant. Also, Josh Hansen will return to racing in the 250 class with Team 100 MotoSport.com Kawasaki.

My guess is due to Weimer's bad results the past 2 years on the 450, Kawasaki decided to drop him like a bad habit!

He's putting a deal together with Nick Wey to be on Green bikes.

I've never been so interested in the GP series now. What a trip this is going to be to watch next year. I just hope his knee is 100%

Yeah, I did some digging and it looks like Weimer hasn't re-signed with anyone yet. Bummer, I always wanted to see Weimer do well since he was the "local" MX guy for my hometown.

Yeah he's had some tough breaks, he literally got his ran over and chewed up this past year Outdoors. I hope it isn't another story of a former Regional SX champ that couldn't put the pieces together in the Premier class. Seems like a good kid

Anyone have any idea why RV is going to the EU? This doesn't make sense to me.

Says hes tired of the grind from the American Series...He supposedly is going to do the GPs for 1 year and then he's out for good. Plus I think he wants do to something Jeremy and Ricky have never done, add a World Motocross Title to his trophy case.

I'm thinking this may be his reasoning...He's won every title here in the U.S. Everyone is comparing him to Cairoli, He wants to go over there, win a championship. That way, everyone in the world has to acknowledge the fact that yes, RV is the fastest man on 2-wheels (at least on the dirt side of things)
