Shaun Simpson has been at the centre of a number of rumours for 2017 and confirmation of his movements is expected over the weekend at the Motocross of Nations in Maggiora, Italy.

The Wilvo Virus Performance KTM team has effectively ceased championship racing following the conclusion of the British series at Foxhill last weekend, where Simpson narrowly missed out on a fourth British championship title to rival Tommy Searle.


The Scot has been heavily linked to the Wilvo Standing Construct squad and a return to Yamaha machinery for the first time since 2013 and when he seized his first Grand Prix victory on a stock YZ450F at Lierop in the Netherlands.
