AMA American Superbike’s Top Finishing Privateer Receives Full Sponsorship from Online Motorcycle Gear Retailer
Holland, Michigan (PRWEB) February 3, 2010 — RidersDiscount.com has signed last year’s top finishing AMA American Superbike privateer Taylor Knapp to ride this year’s AMA American Superbike series under a full title sponsorship. Having scored several important finishes in AMA Pro Racing last year, Knapp is approaching a promising season with RidersDiscount.com. With Thom Godwin operating as Crew Chief, Knapp will be riding a Yoshimura prepared Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superbike with Ohlins suspension.
Named Roadracing World’s “Young Gun” in 2005, Knapp has been racing as a privateer since turning pro in 2004. During the 2009 AMA American Superbike series, Knapp scored his first top five finish and consistently placed in the top ten. Taylor also enjoyed success in the 2009 AMA Daytona Sportbike series, with four top five finishes and his first Superpole.
This will be RidersDiscount.com’s third year working with Taylor Knapp, with 2010 as the team’s first year becoming a full title sponsor. Last year Knapp rode a RidersDiscount.com supported GSX-R1000 in the American Superbike class, and RidersDiscount.com has supported Taylor since 2008. “This is a great opportunity for both of us,” says RidersDiscount.com co-owner Kent Gormat. “We’re looking forward to seeing how our heightened sponsorship, particularly the Yoshimura bike, gives Taylor the right platform to really showcase his talents.”
