Eric Bostrom Returns to AMA Superbike

Superbike Report

Four-time AMA national champion Eric Bostrom is making a return to the AMA Pro National Guard American Superbike series, competing in select road racing rounds aboard a Suzuki GSX-R1000.

Bostrom will be piloting the project bike sponsored by Attack Performance, Cycle World magazine, Yoshimura Racing and American Suzuki. The 33-year-old San Francisco native’s first race will be at Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca, for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix July 23-25, and he will also compete at Virginia International Raceway and Barber Motorsports.

Eric Bostrom says: "I can’t tell you how excited I am to be involved with this project. It’s a fantastic opportunity all the way around. I am thrilled to be getting back on the racetrack, as well as reconnecting with the fans and racing culture. Most importantly, the end result will make a contribution for a great cause – the Joseph C. Parkhurst Education Fund to benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s scholarship program for brain tumor survivors."

Bostrom has won 15 AMA Superbike races, finishing second in the motorcycle racing championship two times, most notable the 2001 one season when Mat Mladin took one of seven titles; that same year Bostrom won the AMA Supersport Championship. He also won the AMA Formula Xtreme Championship in 1998, the AMA Super Twins in 1997 and the AMA Harley-Davidson 883 Dirt Track series in 1996.

The Team Cycle World/Attack Performance/Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000 will be equipped with Attack Performance parts at the companies new Tuning Center in Huntington Beach, Calif. Brembo, Dunlop, Ohlins USA and Marchesini will further support the effort, along with long-time Attack Racing sponsors LeoVince USA, Maxima Racing Oils and EK Chains.
