Race Tech Announces 2012 Outdoor TeamTuesday, May 15, 2012 | 3:55 PM
Urquhart, Livesay, and Hildreth Join Team Race Tech
Race Tech is proud to announce three talented riders will be joining Team Race Tech for the 2012 AMA Motocross Tour and beyond. Kevin Urquhart, Tyler Livesay, and Colton Hildreth have been testing with the Race Tech crew and will compete using RT Hi-Performance Springs, Gold Valves, and Race Tech valving settings this summer.
Kevin Urquhart is one of the top riders out of the Northwestern region of the United States. After spending the past couple of seasons in Canada where he was a consistant podium threat, Urquhart is back focused on the AMA Motocross Championship where he looks to show he is on of the top privateers in the country. Urquhart will be running Gold Valves on his Honda CRF450.
"Kevin has been putting in great results in Canada with very little support for a couple of seasons. Not only does he have good results on the track, but he has a great reputation off the track. Urquhart has been putting in the work and is definitely deserving of more support. We are glad to have him back in the US racing the nationals and wanted to make sure his equipment was up to par with the competition," claimed Race Tech's Chris Riesenberg.
Tyler Livesay is a hard working privateer from Florida heading into his rookie season on the AMA Motocross Tour. The former Sponsor Cup Champion is one of the most stylish riders on the track and is looking fast heading into the season on his realMotocross.com backed Kawasaki KX450.
"(Working with) Race Tech has been an amazing experience for me on and off the track, not only has the suspension exceeded by expectations but the staff at Race Tech have been the hardest working folks I've ever met. Proud to be on the Team!" Tyler Livesay said about his new sponsor.
"Tyler made a name for himself as one of the fastest riders coming out of the Southeast region by being a front runner at the Sponsor Cup in Florida. He was already running Race Tech Gold Valves in his bikes and believed in our company, so it was a no brainer to up his support to help him take on his rookie national season. Tyler isn't just fast on the track, he understands business off the track and represents us well with his involvement with realMotocross.com," Chris Riesenberg, Race Tech's Director of Marketing stated.
Colton Hildreth hails from Nebraska and is a rising star in the sport. Colton will finish up his Amateur career this summer and looks to earn his AMA Pro License by competing in the ProAm events at a handful of the Nationals. Hildreth will compete against the top ProAm riders on his Race Tech tuned Honda CRF250 alongside training partner and fellow Race Tech Team rider Preston Mull.
"Colton first caught my attention at a local race in the Midwest on mini bikes. He wasn't just extremely fast, but he was level headed and had a great support system behind him. We really wanted to partner with him to help ease the transition to the pro ranks. He showed in Vegas at the Amateur National Arenacross Championships he has the speed to be a front runner by being the fastest qualifier," said Race Tech's Director of Marketing Chris Riesenberg.
