Team Dunlop is currently accepting applications for the 2014 team exclusively through its Team Dunlop community site, which is powered by Hookit. Sponsorship applications are being accepted until January 31. To apply, visit Team Dunlop or Hookit profile at www.hookit.com/dunlop . Team Dunlop is one of the nation’s most respected amateur Motocross and Off-Road racer support programs in the United States. As a Team Dunlop sponsored rider, you will be offered special tire support and a social network to communicate and interact with other motocross and off-road riders. Being a Team Dunlop member also provides riders with personal profiles for self-promotion, monthly contests, and technical information on various MX tracks around the country.
Since it’s founding in 2007, many Team Dunlop members have had great success in their professional careers after graduating from the program. In 2013, Team Dunlop alumni made its mark in AMA Pro racing, including Eli Tomac winning the 250 AMA National Motocross title and Justin Barcia finishing third overall in his 450-class AMA National Motocross debut season.
This Podcast is also brought to you by the new modular helmet from Schuberth, the C5. The C5 blends safety with light weight and amazing quietness. Visit Schuberth.com for more information.
This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at email@example.com and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
