Josh Hayes and Teknic Go MotoGP Racing in Valencia.

An opportunity of a lifetime, Josh Hayes received a call from Yamaha late on October 26th asking if he would like to fill in for the injured Colin Edwards at the last round of the Moto GP series in Valencia Spain. Teknic has agreed to support Josh's first ever Moto GP effort by making suits in the next five days. It's a massive effort to design and complete these suits on time said Chris Hayes of Teknic, but well worth the effort.

Josh will compete aboard the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 on November 4-6 in Valencia , Spain. The race will be broadcast live Sunday November 6, 8am 9am on Speed.

Josh Hayes is a two time AMA Superbike champion and Teknic's premier athlete and racer. Teknic has supported Josh and his career for over 12 years. We are extremely excited that Josh is being presented this opportunity. He has worked very hard for many years and deserves it. We are honored to be able to support him added Chris Hayes.
