CARLSBAD, Calif., (Jan. 4, 2006) – With the Anaheim opener of the Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series just a few short days away, Unbound Energy Drink’s stable of riders will no doubt have a serious impact on Saturday’s results board.
“I’ve got a feeling you’re going to be seeing the Unbound Energy logo hanging around the podium a lot during Supercross this year,” said Unbound Energy’s Jon Bratta. “And equally as important, you’ll see these great athletes that we’re backing utilizing the positive, energizing effects of Unbound Energy Drink in a setting synonymous with what we had in mind when we first created Unbound Energy. Supercross is the pinnacle of action sports and what we feel is the optimal test grounds for our Unbound Energy product.”
Starting with Team Yamaha’s Chad Reed, Unbound Energy will have a podium favorite in each and every round. With several weeks to heal and train, Reed’s certainly one of the favorites challenge for the AMA SX title – especially considering the way he soldiered up to the podium in the Amp’d Mobile World SX GP rounds in Canada and scored bronze at both Toronto and Vancouver. There’s no doubt a healthy Reed – the 2004 AMA Supercross champion - will be there to challenge for the overall AMA Supercross title come May.
For the second-straight year rocking the Unbound Energy logo will be Nick Wey of the MDK/MotoSport.com/MSR Honda racing team. Always a threat to crack the top five, the smooth-riding Wey is considered to be the top non-factory backed racer on the circuit. With a slew of Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Championship titles under his belt and consistent finishes through out his nine-year pro career, Unbound Energy’s Wey is definitely a fan favorite and one to keep an eye on through out the entire Supercross season.
Aboard the yellow Suzuki bike and teamed with Unbound Energy again this year will be Pennsylvania’s Broc Hepler. The 2004 runner-up in the Eastern Region AMA Lites class, Hepler enters the ’06 season as one of the favorites to win the hotly-contested Lites class. He’s also carrying some momentum from the AMA Outdoor National Motocross season where he won his hometown race at Steel City (Delmont, Pa.) this past September.
Unbound Energy doesn’t stop with the love for the individual racers as this year the popular energy drink will sponsor the entire Moto XXX team! 2005 AMA Rookie of the Year Juss Laansoo headlines a team that features the return of Tim “Red Dog” Ferry, holeshot artist veteran Kyle Lewis and the hyper fast Josh Summey.
Unbound Energy is available in 16 oz. cans at BP and am/pm retail locations, with more locations and a Sugar-Free Unbound coming soon!
