"I'm happy to be working with Jason. He and I had discussed this awhile back and with my busy schedule and the path I've been wanting to take, I needed someone to start managing certain aspects of my program. We first met back in 2006 after my WORCS Championship and we've always kept in touch. He has done a fantastic job with WORCS and always seems to keep things in order with them on the PR side. I'm really looking forward to a long relationship with Jason and his new agency venture." said Monster Energy/Factory Kawasaki's Ricky Dietrich
"This is something I've been wanting to do for awhile. I worked with Bobby Bonds
last year on a mid-season sponsorship and really enjoyed that side of the industry. I thought about it, planned ahead and made some adjustments to start my new program with rider representation. Ricky Dietrich
is a very determined and driven rider and I am happy to be partnered with him. I like the way he is diverse in all disciplines with Off-Road & Motocross and realize he has a long and successful career ahead of him. We met last week and it seemed like an easy and perfect fit. I'm really looking forward to it." Jason Reed of JR Publications
