Fong provided the following comments to MotoAmerica, “Dave (Anthony) called me to see if I wanted to ride it and I agreed to it for the Ridge and we’ll see how that goes moving forward. I’m excited. Attack has been helping him out and I will have Robbie Petersen for a crew chief. Dave bought Jake Gagne’s bike from last year and Richard Stanboli helps him out and gives him the setups for the weekend and gives him the maps that they started last season with. He has the electronics and the swingarm so it will be good.”

“I’ve always wanted to ride a proper Yamaha. Dave has told me that it’s the bike, so I figured I’d give it a shot and see how I do. I have to be realistic. Everybody’s up to speed and I haven’t ridden a Superbike in over a year. Obviously, I’m going to do my best. Realistically, I would like to be in the podium battle or just on the cusp of that podium battle in my first ride back, but who knows? I might be better, I might be worse, but either way I’m excited to be back and we’ll do the best we can. I’m really happy that I can ride a Yamaha with the proper stuff on it and want to give big thanks to Dave and his crew for making this happen.”
