We have been pretty busy putting together our program and bikes with our current sponsors and a list of some new sponsors. Sitting here looking at a super wet and not summery feeling Sunday, seems like racing will never get here. But, we are really getting close. This week I will head down to Georgia to do the 2nd round of the GNCC series, and it is just weeks till we are racing in the upper midwest.
Bikes have come together really well, and we have a bunch of new sponsors along with a bunch of the same. Our program has just gotten larger every year. Tons of thanks to everyone involved. Here is a run down of what we have going on this year.
Vesrah has been our title sponsor for a long time. Mark Junge has been a longtime supporter and a great friend. He is an amazing road racer, a great cyclist, an ace motor expert… among a bunch of other things. Vesrah has always provided our brakes and we rely on Mark for alot of advice on how to run our season.
We are back with Fun Mart for the 2nd year. They have proven to be a great resource for us. Nicholas there will get parts out to us fast, they are always there for technical advice and they are just really nice guys.
What can I say. The best made graphics, period. AJ is the man!
After using Pirelli for years, Scott and I were a bit nervous to switch brands. I know that alot of people feel that way, you get used to something and it is tough to switch. The guys at Kenda helped us to figure it all out and now we both could not imagine riding on anything else. Try the Millville 2, you will not be sorry.
The first new sponsor for the year is the Fox rear shock. I guess I never really new how great a rear shock could feel. I never knew just how much difference those kind of things could make. I always figured that I am really the weak link in the bike
going faster (I am still not changing that pov), but do not discount what a difference that a super high end part can make.
This Fox baby is the bomb. Wow!
Pretty psyched about the battery thing. It is a small thing, but 2lbs is a big deal, especially if it really starts the thing reliably.
Factory Connection has always equaled great suspension for us. They have been supportive and loyal to our program since 2008. I do not think we would have anyone else tuning our forks. If you need suspension work, give them a shout. They will hook you up properly. Period.
Have you checked these out yet? That is the Bell Moto 9. Reminds us all of Bob Hannah. (Only wish I had that kinda speed – ha!)
This is a bunch of years for us in Bell helmets. They were one of our original sponsors. Love their moto helmets.
Another of our long term sponsors has been Maxima oils. You know that Ronnie Lechien works there? He is actually our contact there. How cool is that? So not only is the oil the best, we get to talk to an absolute motocross legend every time we need something. (I tend to order things one bottle at a time so that I can talk to Ron every time I need something.)
Not only is there logo just about the coolest thing out there, the bars and gels are perfect for before during and after a race. Use them during training and during a race and you will see a difference. Plus, all organic.
Ok, it is about time to get this season started.
