Twerp, do tell where these actions were learned/heard... otherwise you’re just a bored Covid keyboard evangelist.

Did RYP ever show up?  I must have missed it.

Rumor out there that the money guy from Texas has taken the business from RYP.

Ats what I heard. RYP, Kevin Fields all gone. Wayne Dickert canned after first GNCC race. Lots of rumblings about the future race team members as well. Gonna be interesting too see the direction they go from here.

Wayne Dickert is still posting Sherco life all over Instagram as of yesterday , and I ordered parts from Motocenter that drop shipped from RYP in KY to be here tomorrow. Fake news?

Is the Texas guy AOMC or is that Arizona? They seem to be stocked with a lot of Sherco parts.

Yep and he still owns HEO. RYP the entity is still up and running. I never claimed otherwise.  Money mans got 100% ownership looks like. Expect Sherco One to possibly look a lot different next year.

RYP just responded to me stating that RYP/Sherco USA is still the importer/distributor. Saw that Stu Baylor left, but Grant is still in.

Yea but the real question is/was is Ryan still a part of RYP the co.?  I know the companies involved are still in place. Shame none the less. Hopefully things go smoothly either way.

Wow, this is so odd. I can say I have witnessed the same thing in MX with Privateer Teams. The owner “money guy” won’t let the TEAM that knows best run the team.
The money guys ego rubs people the wrong way and then people start jumping ship.
This is more interesting because the Importer is not who is running the Factory one Sherco Team. It’s more of a “Investor” that wants to be a team owner.
Hell I could maybe just not understand the dynamics. Lol

Bummer none the less.

Ryan is gone. Sad as he spent a life time building RYP and now it’s looking bad for Sherco in the USA. I called RYP for parts for my 2015 Trials bike and the guy on the phone gave my no viable way to get the parts as I lost my Sherco dealer and there isn’t one within 500 miles. With that attitude I might start ordering parts from England.
