Acerbis and former 125cc West Coast Supercross Champion Nathan Ramsey has signed an agreement for Nathan to wear Acerbis riding apparel for the 2004 and 2005 Supercross and Motocross seasons. With long discussions finally coming to an end Tallon spoke about the issue, “I look forward to working with a top rider like Nathan,” stated Tallon Vohland. “I know him quite well, after being team mates for two year on Pro Circuit. So with the close relationship, I think we can work well together to maintain and create a higher image that will help Nathan achieve the results he is looking for.”
Nathan came to the sport of motocross a bit later in his life. At age 14 he started racing in his hometown track, Muddy Creek in Tennessee, a venue that witnessed him racing against many of today’s stars in the motocross circuit. Today at age 29, he’s been racing for a little more than half his life and despite his maturity, Nathan still possesses a younger, more aggressive riding technique that gets the job done.
A few career highlights:
1996: 3rd in East Coast Supercross
1997: 10th in West Coast Supercross
1998: 4th in West Coast Supercross
1998: 10th in 125 Motocross
1999: 1st in West Coast Supercross
1999: 5th in 125 Motocross
2001: 2nd in 125 East Coast Supercross
Nathan will play in a big role in Acerbis not only wearing the gear, but also helping in the development of new products. Check out Nathan Ramsey and the new 2004 Acerbis gear at any of the Supercross and Motocross events around the country.
