Copyright 2002, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.<BR><BR>Former racer Jeff Haney has left OMS, Ltd., the agency that represents racers Ben Bostrom, Rich Oliver, Larry Pegram, Jake Zemke, Tony Meiring, Lance Isaacs and Chris Carr along with former racer Freddie Spencer.<BR><BR>Haney's departure from the firm was confirmed by OMS spokesperson Pat Schutte.<BR><BR>The list of OMS-represented riders originally provided to roadracingworld.com by Schutte did not include Isaacs or Spencer, and we updated the list after hearing from Haney.<BR><BR>Haney said, "Don't forget Lance Isaacs, the former Ben Bostrom teammate from the NCR Ducati team. Before I left I secured a ride for Lance with the No Limits team owned by the Curtis family, and Jason Curtis will be the other rider."<BR><BR>Haney said that OMS wanted him to continue but at a different level of commitment and that would have interfered with his other business ventures, not to mention his role as an instructor at the Freddie Spencer High Performance Riding School.<BR><BR>Haney will still attend the AMA rounds and possibly coach riders and teams such as Team America's Jason DiSalvo and Annandale Racing out of Texas. Haney said, "See ya at the races!"<BR><BR>Yet another update, in the form of an e-mail from OMS:<BR><BR>Just quick note and follow-up on the Jeff Haney/OMS issue. I just want to make it plain to your readers that Jeff Haney no longer being with OMS Ltd. should not reflect negatively on Jeff as an individual or his abilities as a coach or trainer in the sport. If I had a son involved in the sport of road racing and needed a coach, I would not hesitate to go to Jeff. We wish Jeff the best with his future endeavors and thank him for his efforts while at OMS. <BR><BR>Fred Bramblett <BR>Mgr. Dir. <BR>OMS Ltd.
