Langston, Windham, Short and Wey all finish in the top ten, making Spy Optic the most dominant brand of goggles in the top ten of the premier AMA Supercross class
CARLSBAD, Calif., (Jan. 7, 2008) – Gnarly conditions greeted the Spy Optic racers at the opening round of the 2008 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series, an FIM World Championship, warranting high level performance from their Spy goggles.
Aided by industry-leading clear vision engineering and bustling racer support, no less than four Spy Optic-backed racers (Grant Langston, Kevin Windham, Andrew Short and Nick Wey) finished in the top ten of the premier AMA Supercross class main event – which gave Spy Optic the majority of the top ten riders in the Monster Energy Supercross opener!
“Definitely a great way to open the season for Spy,” said Spy Optic spokesman Jeremy “Showtime” McGrath. “I can tell you first hand how important your goggles were on a night like last Saturday at Anaheim. You’re hot and it’s cold outside, which can lead to fog.
Spy’s Scoop® Ventilation System and SAS (Sweat Absorption System) allowed the riders to deal with their racing while not having to meddle with their goggles.
“Saturday at Anaheim was a true test for goggle technology and Spy came out on top.”
For the record in the premier Supercross class, Langston finished 4th, Windham 5th, Short 8th and Wey 9th.
In the AMA Arenacross Lites class, Spy Optic’s Dan Reardon (Factory Connection/Honda) pulled the holeshot and led the race, eventually winding up with a team-best 4th place finish.
Next up for the Spy Optic racers on the Monster Energy Supercross tour is the Jan. 12th battle at Phoenix’s Chase Field.
