Tim Dinger will now be flying the flag for Supercross in the Vet -pro class over in the States, Tim is super fast and i’m sure he and Kenth Fallon will be causing havoc in the Vet Pro mains , here’s what he had to say about joining the Supercross family,
“Super-stoked to be with the SX crew. Having back-to-back surgeries last year made it a little difficult to get riding again, but I am finally back in the gym, and getting some strength back in my leg. Hopefully Kenth will show me some of his top secret training tips to get me back in the mix.
Supercross has always been at the forefront of innovation, and I am looking forward to being a part of that. Big thanks to Bill for giving me the opportunity, Ray and Matt at Fly Racing for always keeping me fresh, George at Rennen for the best gears out there, Jake at Industry Nine for the best wheels I have ever owned, and Hawk Racing. Looking forward to 2014 and beyond.”
