A challenging 1986 “retro” track greeted the 11 riders in the DeCal Works Hog Haven Privateer Support Program. The rider line up this week was Heath Voss, Ryan Abrigo, Vincent Blair, Jiri Dostal, and Manu Rivas Gomez in the premier class, with Daniel Blair, Charles Castloo, Matty Dowell, Ramon Guzman, Tye Hames and Tiger Lacey riding Lites bikes.
8 riders worked their way through the afternoon qualifiers and into the night show, as MDK/WWR riders showed talent and determination across the board.
Scott Kandel, Chief Altruistic Officer, elaborated, “It’s an understatement to say I was impressed with the team this week. It seems like everyone has stepped up their game to a new level. One main the first week, two the second, and four this week…If we keep going in this direction, the sky is the limit.”
Smooth Industries Founder Mike Koger said, “As a sponsor of this unique effort, I couldn’t ask for more. The riders’ performances proved that true privateers can still compete at the highest level, if afforded the resources.”
Special thanks to MDK for providing the technology to move our riders towards the top and a big round of applause for the Interns provided by the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute. Without these and other sponsors, our team would not be possible.
