EKS BRAND goggles is stoked to have the race team we have. Not only do we have a team of athletes that haul butt, but they are all great people!
Zach Osborne, MX-2 British Championships, 1st place.
It was business as usual for the Bike It Cosworth, EKS BRAND goggle, Yamaha sponsored, USA's Zach Osborne at the third round of the ACU Maxxis British Championship held at Lyng Norfolk. Zach came out swinging, smoking the competition in two of the three moto's and easily winning the overall. In doing so, he has taken over the points lead and looks ahead at the championship.

Dustin Nelson, Beau Barron, National Quad X series, 1st and 2nd.
Round 2 of the Yamaha Quad X series was held in Buckeye, AZ at the Arizona Cycle Park over the weekend. ACP is known for it’s blue grooved, hard packed dirt and dry, dusty conditions. The weather wasn't’t helping, with temps in the high 90’s the racers were in for a hot day in the Arizona desert.
When the gate dropped in the first moto, Nelson pulled a big hole-shot and pulled away. Barron was in second from the first lap and held it to the finish.
The second moto saw a reverse of the first. Barron with the $250 holeshot award with nelson trailing in second. The two EKS BRAND racers battled back and fourth to the finish with Nelson again coming out on top. Nelson now holds a 6 point lead over Barron for the National title. Congrats guys!
Mike Alessi, Tommy Hahn, AMA SX Seattle Wa. 6th and 9th.
With a nasty rutted SX track EKS BRAND racer Mike Alessi put in his best SX ride to date this year. The conditions were much tougher than a normal SX race and Alessi showed that when the going gets rough.... Mike started the night by once again pulling the hole-shot in his heat and battling for a few laps before dropping to third. In the main, the 800 battled in 3rd place again for a good portion of the race. An off track excursion dropped Mike back into the pack but he battled back to finish a strong 6th place. Mike will be doing outdoor testing for the next two weeks aboard a KTM450. With the added 100cc Mike should be back to the front of the pack for the AMA Nationals!
Tommy Hahn has been hurt most of the season. Seattle marked just his third race back after injury. He battled the tough conditions and the best SX racers in the world to pin down a solid 9th in the main event.
