With the XTRM AMA Supermoto season fast approaching, Troy Lee Designs set out to hire the riders most capable of winning championships. With a couple years of amateur Supermoto racing and the entire 2008 Red Bull Rookies Cup season under his belt Joey Pascarella is the obvious choice to shine in the 250F class in 2009. Joey has shown that he has the speed and determination to contend for championships and with the equipment and support of the sport’s top team he’ll be expected to bring home a fourth title for the TLD crew.
“I’m really excited to be a part of the team,” said Pascarella. He added, “I know the bikes are good and this is my best chance to win races.”
Joey’s teammate on the 450 hasn’t been set in stone just yet, but it looks like it will be someone who is no stranger to the Troy Lee Designs team. Stay tuned for more on that soon.
The XTRM AMA Supermoto series kicks off on March 22nd at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana in conjunction with the AMA Superbike series. The series then travels to Sonoma, CA, Las Vegas, NV, Salt Lake City, UT, Los Angeles, CA and Mammoth Mountain, Ca for the series finale.
