Thor & Monster Kawasaki Renew Partnership
Motorcycle Industry News
For more than a decade, Thor Motocross has been the official racewear of Mitch Payton’s Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki race team. That partnership will continue in 2011 as preparations are well underway for the 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross season.
Living up to its incredibly high standard, Mitch Payton (Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki – Team Manager) has again assembled a championship caliber roster for 2011.
Returning to the team are Thor riders Tyla Rattray (#28), Dean Wilson (#15) and Josh Hansen (#100). Rattray and Wilson will compete on both the Supercross and Motocross circuits, while Hansen will focus on Supercross.
New to the squad will be riders Blake Baggett (#57) and Broc Tickle (#20). Baggett completed the 2010 Lites East Supercross season with one main event win (Dallas), two podiums, and five top-fives finishes, which was good enough for fifth overall in the season standings.
Tickle also collected a main event win (Seattle) and compiled three podium finishes on his way to an impressive fourth overall in the Lites West class.
Thor Motocross is a proud supporter of the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki race team, and looks forward to continued success both on and off the track in 2011.
