Pit Pass Moto - October 16, 2012
Davi Millsaps, Ivan Ramirez, Jack Moore, Chris Clark, Michael Barnes, Billy Ramsey
Advance, North Carolina (October 16, 2012) - Top talent and industry insiders from the motorcycle world give their uncut opinions and stories.
Davi Millsaps, 450 Motocross/Supercross - Rockstar Energy Suzuki
2012 was a good year for Davi - in Supercross he had an outstanding season finishing second in points and in the Motocross Outdoor series he placed ninth after missing some rounds. Rockstar Energy Suzuki, known for a competitive 250 program in the Lites class, will be fielding Davi as their only rider that races the 450 for the race team as they build the program around him.
Ivan Ramirez, Pro Offroad - Factory FMF/KTM SCORE/Baja Team
Ivan will be joining his teammates Mike Brown, Quinn Cody, and Kurt Caselli this weekend at the 9th Round of the National Hare and Hound Series in Johnson Valley, CA. They are using this race as a warm up for the upcoming SCORE/Baja 1000 event that starts on November 14. Ramirez is from Mexico and at just 14; he was part of a three-rider team that won the semi-pro class of the 2007 Baja 500. Ramirez is the 2012 WORCS Pro 2 Champion, 2011 Mexican Enduro Lites Champion, 2010 WORCS Open A Class Champion.
Jack Moore, Owner - Madjack Racing
Jack owns a motorcycle performance shop that provides Factory Level modifications for everyday motorcycle riders. At Madjack they work on all types of motorcycles, street or dirt. They are a full service shop doing anything from full motor rebuilds, top ends, suspension service, general maintenance and tune ups.
Chris Clark, AMA Pro Superbike - Yoshimura Suzuki
Chris wrapped up the 2012 season with the Yoshimura Suzuki team and finished in 12th place overall. His best finish this season was a 7th place. Last year he completed the AMA Pro SuperBike season in 8th overall with nine top-ten finishes. Clark turned pro in 2009 and is an AMA Horizon Award winner.
Michael (Barney) Barnes, KR Group, Spyke's, Vesrah - AMA Pro XR 1200 Champion
Barney won the 2012 AMA Pro XR 1200 Championship after a tough race with competitor Tyler O'Hara. The championship came down to the last lap and final straight before the checker flag. Barney had the lead coming out of the final corner but O'Hara reached out and grabbed Barney's arm causing him to be penalized. Barney had a super consistent season with three wins and ten finishes in the top three.
Billy Ramsey, Supersprox
The Supersprox-stealth sprocket has been gaining popularity in the motorcycle industry for racers and play riders alike. It is the only hybrid sprocket on the market that uses both steel and aluminum to last as long as a steel sprocket with the weight savings of aluminum. The product has been proven around the world with professional race teams and we at Pit Pass use Supersprox on our own bikes. They have sprockets available for street, MX, Off Road and ATV's and offer a full range for most modern motorcycles.
