Lean Angle Canada And Turn 2 Sportbike School Expand Relationship

Lean Angle Helps Turn 2 Students to Get on The RaceLine in 2011

OTTAWA, ON. CANADA January 27, 2011 Steve Reed, President of Lean Angle Canada, is pleased to announce that it has recently concluded a multi line deal with Turn 2 Sportbike School that will see their made to measure RaceLine racing leathers being used in the school's fleet of rental suits and being offered for sale in all of the Turn 2 retail outlets.

The good news does not end there. For 2011, Turn 2 will continue to equip all of their Kawasaki sport bikes with the TechSpec Gripster tank pads and offer the pads for sale in the Turn 2 stores. Students will now be able to experience the grip and control that the Gripsters provide and buy a set of the pads for their own motorcycle right at the Calabogie track.

Rounding out the agreement is the news that Turn 2 will be making mandatory the use of the Medical Information Carrier System (MICS) on all student's and participant's helmets. "This is very sound planning", stated Reed. " Series such as RACE have already made the solution a must have on all of their racer's helmets. By choosing to adopt MICS into their safety platform it speaks to the leadership role that Mike Whitter is taking towards safety preparedness and to the continued emphasis that Turn 2 places on their riders' well being"

The Medical Information Carrier System (MICS) warns non-medical bystanders not to remove a rider's helmet, to leave that critical task to trained medical responders and provides paramedics and other trained emergency personnel with life-saving information about the rider's identity and medical history.

"Turn 2 is pleased to have Lean Angle and its great line of products on-board with us for the 2011 season. Not only does this relationship bring added value for our members and students, it also brings top shelf products for us to integrate in our school program with the RaceLine made to measure leathers, the MICS and of course the tank pads", stated Whitter, Managing Director of Turn 2. He added, "Turn 2 is committed to providing best of breed solutions to our clients, both on and off the track."

All three products will be available at Turn 2's booth at the Ottawa Motorcycle show taking place on the 28th, 29th and 30th of January at Lansdown Park. Lean Angle welcomes everyone to stop by and learn more about the products, Turn 2 and to meet the girls of the Ottawa Sooner's cheer squad..
