Corona, CA- Just prior to the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series kicking off in Anaheim, Race Tech announced the new E2 Logo and showcased the new racetech.com to celebrate completely new suspension valving settings for 2012.
Race Tech's riders proceeded to show just how amazing the new settings are on the track last Saturday night at the Angels Stadium in Anaheim, CA. With one of the deepest fields in the history of the series, just making it through timed qualifying and into the evening program is a challenge. Almost all of the Race Tech supported riders breezed into the night show.
During the evening program, Teddy Maier on his Race Tech backed HyperX CRF250 proved to the world that Race Tech's suspension components are easily competitive with the factory level equipment. After a mid-pack start in his heat race, the number 312 rider put his head down and charged to a 6th place finish and direct transfer to the main event.
In the main event, Maier would make a few mistakes in the opening laps and find himself near the tail end of the field. After loosening up, Teddy would charge toward the front and finish the main event as the top placing non-factory supported rider just outside the top 10.
"I made some mistakes early, so I just settled down and rode my own race. I didn't want to do anything stupid. It's a long series. I'm looking forward to next weekend," said Maier about his impressive performance on Saturday night.
Teddy and the rest of the Race Tech supported riders will head to Phoenix, AZ for Round 2 of the Monster Energy Supercross Series this Saturday night at Chase Field.
