DP Brakes Announces Its Sponsored Riders For 2011

BUFFALO, NY. DP Brakes will be sponsoring several high profile teams and individuals for the 2011 motorcycle road race season.

Teams that DP Brakes will be sponsoring this upcoming season include:

· Team Rad X/BMW Motorrad Canada riders Brett McCormick and Michael Ferreira
· James "The Rocket" Rispoli
· Team Triumph Haribo Starmix riders
· Former XSBA Long Distance Stoppie Record Holder, Ryan Cramer

In addition, DP will sponsor numerous other teams and individuals throughout North America and the rest of the world.

Rad X/BMW Motorrad Team manager, Chris Duff say of the new RDP X-Race Titanium compound, "The Rad X/BMW Team is proud to once again use DP Brake Pads in their S1000RR bikes. The stopping performance provided with the new RDP Titanium Sintered Race Pads allow our team riders to brake late, with confidence and trust that the brake feel is the same from Lap 1 to the end of the race".

James "The Rocket" Rispoli comments on the new RDP X-Race Titanium Pads, "My new DP Race compound was amazing at Daytona. The only way I stayed in the race was by out braking the other riders in the chicane and off the banking in turn one". He goes onto say, "I have so much confidence that when I out brake another rider I will have maximum stopping power without fade during my race".

Finally, Team Haribo Starmix Triumph Team manager Derek Sanders said, "In Spain, we tested four different brands. The RDP Titanium Pads proved to be the best for the team. The braking was consistent. Far and away better than the others". He continued, "On certain pads you can brake up to a certain pressure but then the pad will not any more give; whereas I found that the RDP pad had even more braking power if I needed it. The RDP pad felt dependable and knew it would not fade due to heat or pressure from our aggressive riding".

"We are truly honored to be associated with such high profile teams and individuals. We wish them all the success they deserve," stated Larry Mills, President of DP Brakes North America.

Mills continued, "All riders will be racing with our New High Performance RDP X-Race Titanium brake pads. Results so far prove that we have a compound available to be competitive with all other brands and even show an upgrade over those. The superb initial response, incredible feel and fade free performance puts us at the top of the charts".

These RDP X-Race Titanium Brake pads are available exclusively through Parts Unlimited, in the US, Parts Canada.
