CARLSBAD, Calif.(January 24, 2012)—SPY® today announced a renewed sponsorship deal with longtime MX team rider Kevin Windham. He will be endorsing the new signature SPY + Windham Klutch™ MX goggle and SPY sunglasses through 2014.
"K-Dub's talent is beyond words, he's a racer's racer and he is a threat to win on any given day," says Kyle Krause, SPY motocross segment manager. "His class, style and die-hard commitment to racing make him a fan favorite on and off the track."
Windham has raced for several factory teams, holds an array of titles and has raced against all of the top motocross riders throughout his career, including Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael, Chad Reed, James Stewart, Ryan Villopoto and Ryan Dungey.
With two SX Lites Championships, a Motocross des Nations title and an array of AMA runner-up finishes under his belt, Windham considers the 2011 Feld Motorsports “Fan's Choice” award as his greatest achievement.
"After 17 years of racing, this is my championship, my reason for being," says Windham about the Feld award. "This is my addiction. This is something I take very seriously. I take a lot of pride in this award."
Windham's relationship with SPY began in 2003 and he continues to be a part of a family of SPY motocross legends that includes seven-time AMA Supercross Champion Jeremy McGrath, five-time World Motocross Champion Antonio Cairoli, and a grip of up-and-coming riders taking full advantage of the experience and character of one of the sport's top icons.
"SPY has been a long-time sponsor of mine and I'm excited to go into my 18th season of AMA Supercross with their support," says Windham. "They make insane products that keep things clear and cool when I'm racing, and I'm excited to wear my redesigned signature Klutch goggle this season."
SPY is celebrating the 2012 Supercross season with two limited edition K-Dub Klutch goggles in his signature colors—yellow and blue—currently available at core retailers: one run only, and when they're gone, they're gone.
