Huntington Beach, CA – VIRUS | Action Sport Performance is prepared for the upcoming Supercross and Motocross racing season and is pleased to introduce its Vteam for 2015. The team presents an impressive roster of championship-winning riders including Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Davi Millsaps and Wil Hahn continuing with the team as well as Dakota Tedder from Team Tedder. VIRUS is proud to welcome Jake Weimer, also from Team Tedder.
“We are extremely excited about our Vteam! With Millsaps and Hahn on the same racing team this year and sharing the same trainer, Ryan Fedorow, VIRUS will be collaborating with them to develop new products specific to their needs for training, racing, and recovery,” said Sten Rasmussen, VP of Marketing. “We will also be working closely with Team Tedder to supply them with VIRUS products that will help elevate their racing program.”
Davi Millsaps is a well-known and respected athlete in the motocross world and has garnered many achievements including an East Coast Supercross Lights championship; multiple 450 main event wins and is currently the 2014 Monster Cup Champion.
“I am really excited to continue my relationship with VIRUS and look forward to pursuing the development of new products specific to motocross and training,” stated Millsaps. “ VIRUS has been instrumental in my training and racing program. The VIRUS compression base layers have helped combat fatigue and sped up my recovery -- allowing me to push harder with my program.”
Wil Hahn is competing for his second year in the 450 Supercross class with a new team and mindset. He has been training hard and testing his new Monster Energy Kawasaki vigorously in preparation for the 2015 season. As a former 250SX East Title Champion, Hahn knows what it takes to have a successful program.
“I am really pumped to continue with VIRUS for 2015 because I think they make great products for my training and racing program,” said Hahn. “And because the commitment to their athletes is unreal. They have a training facility at their headquarters for Vteam athletes to use at their disposal -- they want to see their athletes succeed and they create the products to help make that happen!”
In addition, VIRUS is honored to have Team Tedder, which includes 250 Class Rider Dakota Tedder. They recently added Jake Weimer to their program to compete in the 450 Supercross Class. Weimer’s claimed the 2010 West Coast Lites title in dominant fashion with four wins and two podiums. Weimer also took part in the huge underdog victory for the U.S. in the 2009 Motocross des Nations. Plus, Tedder had his best SX season to date in 2014. He is looking forward to improving in 2015 and will compete in the 250SX East Coast series.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with VIRUS for 2015,” said Matt Tedder, Team Owner. “VIRUS offers great compression base layer products that will help Dakota and Jake through the various weather conditions that are endured during the SX and motocross season.”
Tedder also continued to say that he feels VIRUS products are very conducive to a successful training and recovery program as he witnessed with Dakota’s great results during the 2014 Supercross season.
VIRUS has been working diligently with all of their Vteam athletes to ensure that they continue to improve their products and create a line specifically focused on the offroad/motocross athlete. “By listening to our athletes input, we have come up with some great new products that will be moto driven and launched in 2015,” stated Rasmussen.
“Over the past two years, it has been great to see the improvements in design and fit related to my feedback,” said Millsaps, in relation to their collaborative effort. “The new VIRUS moto collection that will be coming out in 2015 will be the ‘go to’ product for all riding and training needs.” Hahn also commented that he wears them for just everyday use because of how comfortable they are!
