Motorcycle-Superstore.com and Bell Helmets to continue support of industry's top riders
MEDFORD, Ore. (Feb. 22) - For a second straight year, Motorcycle-Superstore.com and Bell Helmets are teaming up to support a variety of top racers though their world-class awards program.
As part of the program, select athletes wear a special Motorcycle Superstore-branded Bell Helmet in all of their races, and become eligible for more than $600,000 in bonus awards.
"Motorcycle Superstore is proud to continue this great program with Bell Helmets," said Tim Clark, Motorcycle Superstore's Director of Sports Marketing. "The way we have it set up is cool because we are able to support a lot of riders in different disciplines of motorcycle racing. The custom-designed Motorcycle Superstore Bell Helmet makes it a complete home run, regardless of what happens on the racetrack."
The Bell Helmet program benefits riders in off-road, motocross, flat track, EnduroCross and road racing, to name just a few of the covered disciplines.
Cody Webb has already gotten a jump start on the 2013 season, wearing the custom Bell helmet during his notable win at the King of Motos as well as a podium result at the Hell's Gate Enduro in Italy. A regular in the GEICO Motorcycle AMA EnduroCross series, Webb also is gearing up to compete in Global X Games later this year.
Maria Forsberg, the 2012 GNCC Women's Champion and a two-time X Games Women's Enduro X gold medalist, along with Ryan Sandoval, a rising off-road star and Enduro X rider, will join Webb at Global X Games as part of the Motorcycle-Superstore.com and Bell Helmets race team.
"It's an honor to have pros like Cody, Maria and Ryan as a part of the program," Clark said. "It's great to know we're providing support and motivation for riders of their caliber."
In addition to the off-road stars, Motorcycle Superstore's supported riders in the AMA Pro Racing Pro Singles Flat Track series stood on top the podium numerous times throughout the season with Stephen VanderKuur capturing the 2012 championship, followed closely by Jake Shoemaker and Jason Isennock.
The program isn't limited to high-profile professionals. Motorcycle Superstore and Bell have set aside more than $100,000 in gift cards for riders at the Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship held at Loretta Lynn's ranch in Tennessee, the most prestigious amateur motocross event in the world.
"MX Sports puts on a great week of racing at Lortta Lynn's," Clark said. "We'll have a solid mix of established riders and rising stars representing the Motorcycle-Supertore.com and Bell Helmets brand."
