AMA: Bostrom & Beach Prep for Daytona

AMA Pro Racing Video

Want an insider’s look into what it takes to compete in the AMA Superbike/Daytona Sportbike series, both mentally and physically? Here’s a brief look into the lives of Eric Bostrom and JD Beach as they prep for the upcoming round of Daytona aboard the all-new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R and the ZX-6R.

In this YouTube video, the riders discuss a bit about their training and eating rituals, and then are filmed prepping flat-track style. The video ends with some images of the Cycle World Attack Kawasaki team of Bostrom and Beach fine tuning their motorcycles at Chuckwalla Raceway in Desert, Calif.

Under the guidance of crew chief Richard Stanboli and with the support of Phil Baker of BCS Management, this newly created road racing team will compete at the opening round of the 2011 AMA Pro Road Racing season next weekend at the "World Center of Racing," Daytona International Speedway, in both the American SuperBike and Daytona SportBike classes.

Four-time AMA national champion Eric Bostrom will anchor the team aboard the all-new 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R in American SuperBike.

Bostrom will also compete in the Daytona 200 on a Kawasaki ZX-6R, which, for two years running, has won Best Middleweight honors in Cycle World’s prestigious Ten Best balloting. Rising star JD Beach will line up alongside Bostrom in the 200 on a second Attack Performance-prepared ZX-6R.

Making its U.S. racing debut this year at Daytona, the 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R features a potent blend of high-performance engine and chassis specifications combined with an exceptional electronics package to create this year’s most significant new liter-class sportbike.
