Partridge to Fill-In for Hill at A3Thursday, January 31, 2013 | 2:15 PM
RCH Press Release
Josh Hill (No. 75 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/RCH Racing/Bel-Ray/Suzuki RM-Z450) remains sidelined for another week recovering from the fractured right-hand he suffered at the season opener at Anaheim. He is scheduled to return to the RCH Racing lineup next week in San Diego. In his absence, RCH Racing is excited to announce that Kyle Partridge will ride the No. 85 Dodge/Sycuan Casino/RCH Racing/Bel-Ray/Suzuki RM-Z450 this weekend. Partridge flew the RCH colors for nine races last season and earned seven Main Event starts.
“When the opportunity presented itself there was no way that I was going to pass it up,” said Partridge. “To have the chance to run a factory bike is exciting. I'm really looking forward to the opportunity. I'm grateful that RCH considered me and look forward to riding the bike on Saturday.
“I’ve been on the bike for three days. We're going to do some riding today to work on starts and get more comfortable on the bike. The biggest difference I notice from riding is that this bike feels so much more solid. It’s super tight. The motor package is gnarly. They're fast.”
RCH Racing is looking forward to visiting Anaheim for the 3rd time this year, and are excited to have two bikes on the track representing our team this weekend.
