Johnny Moore #140 (Madison, MS) and Jake Lowry #231 (Brandon, MS) will represent Moto Innovations and will be sporting their Ankle-Saver® foot pegs at East Coast rounds beginning on February 11 in Houston. Branden Miller #991 (Fisherville, TN) will join the team at limited events as the series progresses. All three athletes have experience qualifying and racing at the Pro level in past years, and each brings an aspect to the team that will help guarantee success. Moore exhibits a work ethic that is second to none, taking training and competition very seriously in order to achieve his goals. Lowry’s character and dedication to the sport gives him an edge when preparing for events. Miller has an unshakable focus and strong leadership skills that will add to the team dynamic in a positive manner. With impressive amateur careers behind them, these three riders look forward to an eventful 2011.
“Both Johnny and Jake have been working extremely hard to prepare for the East Coast rounds of SX, and we are pleased to have them represent our company and brand,” says Robert Hudson of Moto Innovations. Tom Crain of Moto Innovations adds, “We are excited to get on the road. Johnny and Jake are sure to perform well, and having Branden join us on occasion will be an added plus.” This will be Moto Innovation’s first full season of competition at the professional level, although all three riders have been competing with Ankle-Savers® on their bikes for more than a year. In preparation for the SX season, the team will be competing in the Arenacross Tour beginning January 8th in Jackson, MS.
