Sartso Killer Kevlar Jeans Return to XDL

Freestyle Sportbike

Sartso Killer Kevlar Jeans will be returning to the XDL Championship Series for the 2011 Season as the title sponsor of the Sartso Women’s Cup.

The program, first started in 2010, is revolutionary because it creates a professional outlet for the increasing number of women in the street freestyle scene.

Last year the Sarto Women’s Cup was scheduled for only three events but ended up being held at every series stop due to popular demand. And it was featured in ESPN’s X Games 16 XDL demonstration.

The 2010 champion Dena Sodano reflected on the inaugural season and 2011: "I think the Sarsto Women’s Cup definitely gave respect to the girls. Most people assumed that girls either can’t or shouldn’t be stunt riding. It’s not an easy sport. There is going to be lots to see from the XDL girls this year!"

Randy Grube (XDL Founder) says: "By design, this competition is about opening new frontiers on many levels and it is doing just that. It is truly exciting to be part of something that is growing so quickly."

2011 XDL Series Schedule:

Round 1: Daytona Beach, Fla. – During Daytona Bike Week – @ Daytona International Speedway – March 9 – 12
Round 2: Phoenix, Ariz. – During AZ Bike Week – @ Downtown Scottsdale – April 1 & 2
Round 3: Nashville, Tenn. – XDL Freeride Festival – @ Nashville Superspeedway – June 10 & 11
Round 4: Monterey, Calif. – With MotoGP – @ Downtown Monterey – July 22 & 23
Round 5: Indianapolis, Ind. – With MotoGP – @ Downtown Indianapolis – August 26 & 27
