Announcing Xtreme Rockstar Suzuki Amateur Team

Brea, Calif. – January 4, 2009 – American Suzuki announced the Xtreme Rockstar Suzuki amateur team plans for the 2010 season. Led by Team Manager Ed Torrance and team owner Bobby Hewitt, the 2010 Xtreme Rockstar Suzuki team will consist of two riders and will focus on preparing them for their pro careers. The racers will be competing on Suzuki’s lineup of championship-winning bikes, the all new RM-Z250 and race-proven RM-Z450.

The Xtreme Rockstar Suzuki lineup will consist of Ian Trettel and Landon Currier. “Ian just came off a dominating performance at Mini O’s and I believe the Xtreme Rockstar Suzuki team will be able to provide him the tools to win more championships and gain the skills to begin a successful pro career,” stated Brian Noah, Suzuki Motocross Support Specialist. “Landon Currier is new to Suzuki in 2010, and after only weeks on his new bikes is showing the speed required to win races in the hotly contested B classes.”

With Team Owner Bobby Hewitt and Team Manager Ed Torrance, the Xtreme Rockstar team was created to help cater to riders who are getting ready to make the next step and prepare for their professional debut. “I’m really excited about the opportunity we have with American Suzuki. Having two great riders who understand the program and the commitment that is required with Ian and Landon is going to make this year another successful season at Xtreme Rockstar Suzuki,” stated Bobby Hewitt, owner of Xtreme Amateur and Pro Lites, LLC. The Xtreme Rockstar Suzuki team offers a semi, top-notch race mechanics, and the best equipment possible to provide the riders the best opportunity for victories. The team also helps riders prepare for the future by bridging the gap from amateur to pro racing. Trettel, from Silver Springs, Florida, will compete in the 250A and 450A classes. From Brush Prairie, Wash., Currier will compete in the 250B and 450B classes.
