Joe Roberts, Mike Genova, Jimmy Wood, Ryan Dungey, Tyler Bowers
Advance, North Carolina (January 28, 2014) - Motorcycle industry racers, business owners and insiders from the motorcycle world give their uncut opinions and stories.
Joe Roberts, AMA Pro Daytona SportBike - Team Hammer
Roberts came onto
the AMA Pro SuperSport scene in 2013 with a bang going five for five in
the races he participated in. He raced a partial AMA Pro season since he
was already committed to the Red Bull Rookies Cup, a series he had been
racing in since 2011. He finished the 2013 season in the Red Bull
Rookies Cup in 14th overall with his best finish a fourth at
Brno. For 2014 Roberts will be racing a Honda CBR600RR for Team Hammer
in the Daytona SportBike class.
Mike Genova, Team Owner - Smartop MotoConcepts
MotoConcepts Racing has been in the pro paddock since 2008. Despite
some incredible results over the years the team still doesn't have
support from any O.E.M.'s. Their unique approach to racing sets them
apart from many of the teams they compete with. Back in December they
launched a scholarship program offering a fully supported and salaried
rider position on the team. The winner was selected based on the most
fan votes received on MotoConcepts website, the winning rider's overall
performance at the first two West Coast races, and overall character.
Colon Aeck was the winner.
Jimmy Wood, Road Race/Street/Dirt Track R&D - Race Tech
Former top flat track racer, road race track record holder, and owner
of Southland Suspension, Jimmy Wood has been hired onto the Race Tech
staff. Jimmy will be heading up Race Tech's R&D efforts for Road
Racing, Flat Track, and Street moving forward.
Ryan Dungey, Supercross - Red Bull KTM
Dungey finished 4th
this past weekend in Oakland, California, he is currently tied with
teammate with Ken Roczen in the overall points standings. So far this
season Ryan has two podiums. His accomplishments are extensive including
2009 Lites Supercross and Motocross Championships, 2010 Supercross and
Motocross Championships (rookie year, only second rider to accomplish
this). In 2010 and 2011 he was a member of the winning U.S. Team in the
Trophy Des Nations. In 2012 he reunited with his mentor Roger DeCoster
and won the 450 Motocross Championship.
Tyler Bowers, Arenacross - Team Babbitts Monster Energy AMSOIL Kawasaki
Bowers has won the Arenacross title the last three years. If he could
pull it off again this year he will become just the third rider to win
four straight championships. It won't come easy as Tyler recently
announced he has been riding with injury. He fractured his tibia at the
first round of the season and has been riding through the pain. He
currently sits 3rd in points however the points will reset later in the
season as part of the "Race to the Championship" over the last four
stops of the series.
