Following Fillmore Episode 4

AMA Pro National Guard Superbike HMC KTM rider Chris Fillmore hits a crossroads in the fourth episode of “Following Fillmore,” which was released this week.

In 2010, Fillmore was running low on funds to invest in his own racing efforts. He decided to move to California, where he continued training and networking. This episode shows what it’s like in a day in the life of Fillmore – off the track.

Speaking of episode 4, KTM says the video takes us “on a short cruise with Chris to Venice Beach’s famous Deus Ex Machina, ‘one of the most vibrant hubs of surf, bicycle and motorcycle culture on Planet Earth.’ Featuring, as Chris calls him the ‘mad man’ in the garage, Michael ‘Woolie’ Woolaway. We get a sneak peak into ‘Woolie’s’ workshop, located in the back of the Venice store, where he assembles iconic, custom bikes.

“Kick back with a cup of Joe as this episode reveals more of Chris’s history while simultaneously exposing the motorcycle aficionados in the heartland of good vibes and sunshine, Venice Calif.”

The 25-year-old Fillmore began professionally racing in 2003 in the inaugural AMA SuperMoto series. Due to his strong finishes, Fillmore got a ride with factory Red Bull KTM at the age of 16, the youngest racer in the series. Fillmore continued to race in AMA, winning the 2011 AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series, and delivering various podiums aboard the KTM RC8 in the SuperBike Championship.
