-FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE-
Corona, CA – Pro Taper is thrilled to welcome 19-year-old FMX sensation Levi Sherwood back to the team for 2011. The dominant pairing wracked up wins on the Red Bull X-Fighters tour, a Summer X-Games silver medal and numerous contest victories throughout the 2010 season. Both Pro Taper and Levi are excited for the New Year and cannot wait for things to kick off.
"Levi is the future of FMX and I am totally stoked that he has chosen to use Pro Taper products while on his way to the top of the sport," said Pro Taper Marketing Manager Charles Castloo. "Levi is the perfect fit to represent Pro Taper and we are looking forward to working with him for many years to come."
"Pro Taper has helped me since I first arrived in the states and they really get the job done, so it's only natural for us to continue together. Every time I grab my bars before and after a trick I can count on Pro Taper to be there for me," added Levi.
Levi is currently on the mend from injuries sustained at the 2010 ASA World Championships, but look for him to come out swinging once the Red Bull X-Fighters tour starts up in April.
