Calgary-based roadracer Braeden Ortt is changing teams, with two races left in the MotoAmerica schedule.
Ortt’s been racing in Supersport for 2019, aboard a ZX-6R for the Graves Kawasaki team. In most races, he’s had finishes in the 8th-10th range. Now, he’s moving back to Tuned Racing, where he raced last year aboard a Yamaha R6. Presumably, he’ll be back on the Yamahammer again for the remaining two races.

TUNED RACING CONFIRMS THAT ORTT HAS REJOINED TEAM FOR FINAL TWO ROUNDS OF MOTOAMERICA SEASON
Attention race fans! Tuned Racing is proud to announce that we will be fielding 2 premier 600 Supersport riders for the last rounds of the MotoAmerica series.
Starting at the New Jersey round in Millville we are happy to say Braeden Ortt is coming home and will be racing a Tuned Racing Yamaha R6 sporting his custom Canadian schemed bodywork alongside Bryce Prince. Team manager Alex Eisner was instrumental in putting this deal together and he is extremely excited.
“Bryce and Braeden riding together has been a fantasy of mine for years and now it is becoming a reality,” said Alex Eisner
“I had a great time helping to develop the Kawasaki ZX-6R, but I’m very excited to finish my season on a bike I’m familiar with and a team that I’ve had so many great memories with,” said Braeden Ortt.
“As a team we have been very fortunate to have worked with some very talented riders over the years. I can tell you that Braeden Ortt is one of those riders and he belongs in the front! Anyone that knows me, knows that my riders become family. With the advancements Bryce Prince has made this year and the addition of Braeden we are bound to put on a show and run up front,” said Mike Pond.
