Corona, CA (5/20/04) ¿ Long time TLD sponsored rider Josh Grant made quite an impression at his debut as a pro rider at the seasons first National held at Hangtown raceway. Josh had the opportunity to show how much speed and talent he has, when he got the holeshot in the 125cc class and held it for a few laps. Unfortunately he had a crash that cost him the finish of the event, but there is no doubt Josh Grant will be back.
Josh is one of the most dominant and one of the most winning riders in the amateur ranks for 2004. He has a strong support system from his family and from sponsors like Troy Lee Designs, Honda of Houston Racing, Honda of America, Shoei, and Alpinestars, to name a few.
This year Josh will be busy doing both the AMA Outdoor series and racing his last year of amateur events. Both take a lot of time and effort and of course financial backing and team support. In efforts to assist Josh in his transition to pro racing, Troy Lee Designs has released Grant for the AMA events to race under the tent of Amsoil Honda/Factory Connection. Josh will be we wearing SHIFT gear for the 12 AMA National events only and will remain in TLD gear for any and all other events.
We, at TLD want to wish Josh the best of luck for the remainder of the year and congratulate him on an awesome start to a new venture for the rookie pro!
