Lincoln, NE (March 9, 2005) – Tamer Motorsports announced today that Pedro Gonzalez would be joining their efforts for the remainder of the AMA Supercross series. Pedro, the fastest rider to ever come out of Mexico, is a multi-time National Arenacross winner along with a Dash for Cash champion in that same series.
Pedro will pilot his Tamer/SoCal Racing/Cycleworkx.com/Big Gun Exhausts/Millennium Cycles YZ250 starting with Dallas on April 2, 2005 and his YZ250F at the remainder of the West Coast supercross series.
¿We are extremely pleased to finally work a deal with Pedro. He is a great talent and a tremendous person to work with. His attitude and work ethic will help elevate the entire team,¿ stated Kevin Maret. ¿Pedro earned a factory KTM ride in Mexico for 2005 and KTM was generous enough to release Pedro to Tamer Motorsports for his U.S. races¿.
¿I am excited to do this program. Kevin and I have been talking for 3 years trying to put together something where we could work together and I am looking forward to the challenge. My main focus is preparing myself for the Dallas Supercross on my YZ250. I am back with SoCal Racing and HJC Helmets, two of my long time sponsors and this team is impressive for their first year in Supercross,¿ said Gonzalez.
Maret continues, ¿This team has struggled with main events in the Supercross series. Our program is excellent from our image in the pits, to the appearance and presentation of our race bikes all the way down to the hospitality and the transporter, but sponsor want a complete package and every sponsor has been tremendous to work with in 2005 and deserves a complete package. They are all very understanding and very supportive of Tamer Motorsports and we felt as a team, that we had to make a change and at least try something different. We do not have a crystal ball, but we feel Pedro can get the job done that we are looking for.¿
