The 2022 racing season has big things in store for Patricia Fernandez and Cory West.
After a strong season of bagger racing with Saddlemen Seats in 2021, the dynamic duo has reunited with Saddlemen and new partner Lloyd’z Garage for the 2022 MotoAmerica Mission King Of The Baggers Championship.
Patricia will be back onboard the number 87 Indian Challenger that she rode last season, while Cory will be contesting an Indian Chieftain built by Lloyd’z Garage/Indian Motorcycle of Charlotte/Indian Motorcycle of St. Paul. This all-Indian Motorcycle team will also be fielding two Indian FTR1200s in the four-round Roland Sands Design (RSD) Super Hooligan series.
On top of being title sponsors and official oil for the King Of The Baggers series, Mission Foods and Motul will also be joining forces with the Saddlemen/Lloyd’z Garage team.
David Echert from Saddlemen said, “I’m excited to have joined forces with Lloyd’z Garage for the MotoAmerica season and to have veteran riders Cory and Patricia continuing to represent our team.
“Motorcycle racing has been a big part of our company’s DNA for over 30 years and this season is no exception. It’s really going to be great to watch this year’s team because with every lap we seem to get faster and faster, so we plan to see some exciting podium finishes this year from Team Saddlemen/Lloyd’z Garage!”
Lloyd Greer, co-owner of Indian Motorcycle of Charlotte, Lloyd’z Garage at the Buffalo Chip Sturgis, and newly acquired Indian Motorcycle of St. Paul stated, “We are thrilled to be entering the King Of The Baggers racing series joining forces with team Saddlemen Seats, Indian Motorcycles, and a rider lineup second to none. I’m looking forward to a strong showing during the 2022 MotoAmerica race season with Cory and Patricia piloting our bikes.”
Tim Sutherland, co-owner of Indian Motorcycle of Charlotte, Lloyd’z Garage at the Buffalo Chip Sturgis, and Indian Motorcycle of St. Paul, said, “We are bringing the strongest team in the paddock, and the Indian Motorcycle of Charlotte/Indian Motorcycle of St. Paul/Saddlemen Team is looking forward to challenging the corporate giants.”
Cory West – “The Saddlemen crew and I had a great season together last year, and I can’t be more excited about this new partnership with Lloyd’z Garage/Indian Motorcycle of Charlotte/Indian Motorcycle of St. Paul. They’re definitely thinking outside the box, and I look forward to showcasing what we can do on these Indian Motorcycles. I’m also pumped to have Mission Foods and Motul supporting Patricia and I throughout this 2022 race season!”
Patricia Fernandez – “2021 was a big learning curve for me racing the Saddlemen Indian Challenger and FTR1200. I loved the progress we made, and I believe teaming up with Lloyd’z Garage for 2022 is going to make us extremely competitive. Lloyd’z is the shop to go to for all things Indian Motorcycle performance and having them on our team will put Cory and I in the hunt for podiums and championships. Riders don’t win races, teams do. I believe the combination of Saddlemen seats and Lloyd’z Garage give us the right mix to take our team to the next level.”
