Brett Metcalfe

Brett Metcalfe could easily be described as a quiet achiever. In contrast to the many brash young competitors who populate the sport, the Australian’s laid-back approach is often misinterpreted as complacency. But don’t be fooled.

Brett Metcalfe could easily be described as a quiet achiever. In contrast to the many brash young competitors who populate the sport, the Australian’s laid-back approach is often misinterpreted as complacency. But don’t be fooled. The minute he pulls up to the start line and prepares for the gate to drop, he is anything but complacent.

 

In 2002, at the age of 18, the young Aussie packed his bags and headed for Europe to compete in the World Motocross GP Series MX2, leaving his native country far behind. A year later, he headed stateside to begin his U.S. racing career. Racing in both East and West Supercross support class championships, Metcalfe eventually went on to win the U.S. Open in Las Vegas in 2005.

 

In 2009, Metcalfe raced his first season with GEICO Powersports Honda and bounced back from an injury he sustained early on in the Supercross series to finish third overall in the Motocross Championship standings.

 

Metcalfe joined the Factory Suzuki team in 2011, teaming up with Ryan Dungey (2011) and James Stewart (2012) during his two years on the squad. At Southwick in 2011, he captured his first career victory by going 3-2 on the day.

 

After fracturing his tibia and fibula and dislocating his wrist during a practice session, Metcalfe was forced to miss the final seven rounds of the 2012 season. At the end of the season, his contract with Yoshimura Suzuki was up, and unable to find a new ride in the U.S. to his liking, Metcalfe signed a deal with Leading Edge Kawasaki to race the Canadian Nationals in 2013. He went on to win five of nine races en route to becoming the MX1 champion.

 

With defending 450MX champion Ryan Villopoto injured and unable to compete in the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, Monster Energy Kawasaki called on Metcalfe to return to the U.S. and fill in for RV for the entire outdoor season.
