Buffalo, NY – Dunlop Motorcycle Tires is pleased to announce the hiring of Clark Stiles as a professional test rider at Dunlop’s Huntsville, Alabama Proving Grounds (HPG).
“With Clark Stiles, we’re taking our Supercross-motocross development program to a new level,” said Dunlop’s Motorcycle Division Vice President Mike Buckley. “Our goal is to become the dominant tire manufacturer in this arena and Clark’s addition to the Dunlop team will help us achieve that goal.”
Stiles, a 31-year old native of Athens, Alabama, has been a top privateer and support rider in the AMA Supercross and outdoor national programs for many years, competing on teams such as Team Moto XXX, Subway Honda, Maestro Suzuki and SoCal Yamaha.
Stiles will be working under the Dunlop tent at a number of 2007 AMA Supercross and Motocross events, according to Roberts, and will be assisting Dunlop Off-Road Manager Broc Glover with the factory-supported riders of Honda Racing, SoBe No Fear/Samsung /Honda and Team Redbull KTM. Roberts added that Stiles’ role will eventually expand to include other product lines such as ATV and Supermoto.
“I’m really pleased with this opportunity,” said Stiles. “Dunlop is committed to excellence in everything they do and I am honored to become a part of that effort.”
