N-Fab, TiLUBE, and Yamaha Join Forces for 2013
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (Nov 30, 2012) – With the 2013 race season fast approaching, three iconic brands have joined together to create what is sure to be a formidible presence on the start line and in the pits. N-Fab, TiLUBE, and Yamaha Racing headline the two-rider, 450-class team set to contest the hyper-competitive Supercross and Motocross series’. Preparations are already underway as the team readies themselves for the kick off of the 17-round Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. on January 5, 2013.
Chris Blose (Phoenix) and Phillip Nicoletti (Bethel, New York) will pilot the revolutionary Yamaha YZ450F inside stadiums and across the American countryside as they look to make their mark on the 2013 season.
Team Manager Allan Brown is admittedly energized by the new team and riders, “At 24 years of age, Chris Blose brings 42 main event starts and a good balance of youth and experience to the team,” said Brown. “This is my second year working with Chris and we are looking to continue our streak of main event appearances from last season. 23 year old Phillip Nicoletti showed tremendus potential in 2012, capping off the motocross season with a string of top 10 finishes in the 450 class. Both of these riders are capable of producing solid finishes week in and week out and I can’t wait to get the season started!”
N-Fab, producers of industry-leading off-road accessories, is also looking forward to a successful 2013 campaign, "We are very excited to be partnering with TiLUBE and Yamaha Racing for the 2013 Supercross and Motocross series’,” commented N-Fab founder Thomas Fichter. “The opportunities this partnership offers the N-Fab brand extend well beyond the track and we’re looking forward to debuting a complete new look and launching our latest race-ready N-Fab team on January 5!”
