We’ve seen a bunch of sponsor news the past two or so weeks, but this one was probably one of the more unexpected bits of news. As of 2021, Mykel Larrin is no longer riding for Rockstar Energy. Based on his caption, it sounds like he was let go which is real surprising considering Mykel has been on fire and it seems like 2021 was going to be another good year for him. However, Rockstar also let Ryan Nyquist go as well after 13 years with the team, so it’s most likely a budget change or restructure caused by corporate BS.
It will be interesting to see if anyone else on the Rockstar team gets let go. Right now, the team consists of Dennis Enarson, Chad Kerley, Chase Hawk, Logan Martin, TJ Ellis, Marcus Christopher, Sean Ricany, Nick Bruce, Cory Nastazio, Tom Dugan and Brandon Loupos.
