Chad Pederson will be back into National AX competition, this time as a rider's coach and team consultant. GPS Racing has hired Pederson for the upcoming 2006-2007 National AX season in which Pederson will be integrated into the team as a rider's coach and trainer preparing the riders with the physical and mental aspects of this unique sport and as an on-going consultant to the team. Pederson who won several National AX main events and even a 125 SX main event in his career brings a vast wealth of knowledge. The GPS Racing AX team had a breakout year in 2005-2006 putting
five different riders on the podium in National AX competition and also had five main event wins in the 250F/Lites class, making GPS Racing the most successful Honda 250F/ Lites program in National AX in a few years.
Furthermore GPS Racing also captured the Regional AX title in 2005-2006 supporting Jeff Willoh. "I'm excited to be bringing Chad on board" states team owner George Hodkinson. "Chad had a long and successful career and knows what it takes to succeed in this sport. I think Chad is an under-utilized resource in this sport, and I recognized that and brought him into this team to build on the success we've had in the past year."
