Josh Hayes Fills In For Kevin Olmedo on the N2 Racing Yamaha YZF-R6 in SuperSport.
Media, PA – July 2022 – Josh Hayes will ride the N2 Racing Yamaha YZF-R6 in the MotoAmerica SuperSport class at Brainerd International Raceway on July 29 – 31st. Josh will be riding in place of N2 Racing’s full-time SuperSport rider, Kevin Olmedo, who is recovering from Guillain-Barre Syndrome at home in El Salvador. Kevin is hopeful to make a quick recovery and rejoin the team, but there is no timeline for Olmedo’s return at the moment.
Josh Hayes is currently riding the N2 Racing/BobbleHeadMoto Yamaha YZF-R1 in the N2/WERA National Endurance Series by Dunlop where the team recently team scored their first overall win at Roebling Road Raceway. Hayes brings an incredible amount of experience to the team that will help develop the Yamaha YZF-R6 in Olmedo’s absence.
Josh Hayes – “I am very thankful that N2 has entrusted me their Yamaha YZF-R6 during this tough time. After riding with Kevin Olmedo and working with them at Roebling Road Raceway during the N2/WERA National Endurance Race, I know the level of the equipment and how tight they are as a team. I hope I can do a good job at Brainerd in Kevin’s absence, and I look forward to gridding up with Kevin soon.”
Shiloh Salopek (Crew Chief) – “I am saddened to hear about Kevin’s recent diagnosis. Our team stands beside Kevin and his family during his road to recovery and we look forward to when he will be healthy enough to be back on his Yamaha YZF-R6 fighting for podiums. I also would like to say thanks to Josh for being willing and able to fill in for Kevin at Brainerd International on such short notice.”
