For Immediate Release:

Double U.S. National Champion Alex Wisdom, from High Ridge, Missouri, will be representing the United States in the European Junior Cup Powered by Honda Racing in 2013.

Wisdom, the 2012 USGPRU Moto3 and Moriwaki MD250H National Champion, has been chosen from applications received from all over the world to compete in the prestigious European Junior Cup Championship for 2013. The EJC Championship is an official support race series for the FIM Superbike World Championship.

Alex will ride a race-prepared 2013 Honda CBR500R in the eight-round series, visiting some of the most famous race circuits in the world and traveling to seven countries during the race season. The Championship begins with a three-day training camp in Spain at the start of April, followed by the first round of the EJC Championship at Motorland Aragon, in Spain, on March 14th*. The Championship has a grand prize of a fully-supported ride on a new Honda CBR600RR in the 2014 European Superstock Championship.

On being given the news, Alex was extremely excited. When asked what his thoughts were, he said "I am so lucky to be given this amazing opportunity to further my racing career and can't wait to race in Europe representing the USA. I want to thank everyone who made this possible, especially Frank Scotto and Stewart Aitken-Cade. I hope I can make my sponsors and supporters proud."

David Wisdom, Alex' dad commented, "Our plans and finances had this as our main objective for 2013, I had been telling everyone to expect something different, I hope we did not disappoint. All the plans and discussions with sponsors over the closed season finally came together this past week, and I could not be happier at this time. I want to say a big thank you to Frank Scotto, owner of CADS Racing Team ( without whom none of this would be possible."

Alex will be riding for the CADS Racing Team owned by Frank Scotto in 2013. This will be Alex's first experience of riding for someone other than TEAM MUM & DAD. Alex's father David and mom Tracy will be with Alex in Europe for all the rounds to keep the team dynamics the same as he is used to, allowing Alex to concentrate on his riding and bringing the Championship trophy home to the midwest of the U.S.

We still have opportunities for sponsors on Alex's helmet, leathers, etc. Should you be interested please do not hesitate to contact
