The SS crew kicked off the new year with a new team running custom GT Speed Series Stay Strong frames. Teaming up with Bensink Start Gates supported by Rockstar Energy, Clark and Kent Contractors and www.310proshop.com .
The UK held it’s first SX race at the newly opened Indoor track in Manchester the weekend before last. An International field lined up in this season opener with some top foreign guys over for the show. Our very own Kyle Evans was on top form in his first Elite race since moving up from Jr. He got amongst the action, riding hard winning moto’s and his semi before finishing 5th in Saturday night’s final. Kyle is a great addition and we’re happy to welcome him to the team for 2012. You’ll be seeing more of him in edit’s we have planned in the coming month’s.

The Euro based crew got off to a good start in Belgium this last weekend with decent results on day 1. Shanaze Reade take home a solid win, back after a recent injury. We are delighted to have Shanaze on board for this year and running our frame and parts right the way through her Olympic campaign .. Leopold Tramier was throwing in some signature style in Jr Men, winning laps and looking comfortable all the way to the main. He got caught up in the first turn in the final and finished 6th on the day but had looked good for a podium and made light work of the track with his trail style

Jordy Van Der Heijde and Adrien Demaria were repping in Elite men. Adrien crashed out in a pile up in turn one in the 1/8th’s but Jordy was strong and consistent winning some laps before finishing 5th in the main in his first race in SS colours. Jordy has now headed to St.Maxime France where he’ll be based for the next 2 months as he prepares for the French Cups and Italy leg of the Euro tour.

Meanwhile “Down Under” our Aussie Darryn Goodwin has been racing back to back from Nerrang to the Victorian titles, the Track attack series before hitting up the Pro race this coming weekend over in his home city of Perth. He still had time to hit up some backyard jam action and high air contests along the way! We’re looking forward to Darryn joining us in Europe for a few months from March to hit all the major races on the way to the World’s in Birmingham.
