Bakersfield, CA - WORCS Racing's Jason Reed announced his auction today of Team CCR & their former Pro Champion Bobby Bond's 2008 WORCS Pro Championship bike along with a singed set of 2009 AXO Championship gear. Bonds who was the underdog in 2008 coming in, showed consistency and drive to deliver the 2008 WORCS Pro Championship to his Honolulu Hills/CCR team. This bike has all the goodies along with the fact it’s the '08 Champions bike. Most important remaining proceeds from the bike after CCR's initial financial recovery will go to the "RiderDown Foundation". RiderDown is a national non-profit organization based out of Evergreen, CO which helps injured riders and their families. This is a chance to get a piece of history to sit in the office, shop or by all means take out and ride, although it would tend to look clean on the "shelf" along with a donation to a well deserved organization.
"I'm happy to do something like this. This is a part of giving back and I think its great Derek and I are able to do this. Jason Reed of WORCS Racing set this up for us. He met Bruce Vermeulen with RiderDown in Vegas at Endurocross last month, launched the idea to Bruce and it was an easy fix. I look forward in giving back to this awesome organization." - Bobby Bonds
"This is such an awesome idea. We at RiderDown are excited and I want to personally thank Jason Reed, Derek Gerecke (CCR owner) and Bonds for doing this. It is such a tough time right now for injured riders and this will be a generous donation to our organization allowing us to help more riders." - Bruce Vermeulen of RiderDown Foundation
