Renthal has officially opened up their Rider Support program for 2012.  2012 will see Renthal’s 24th year of their support program in the USA which has seen so many of the sport’s elite stars come up through.

Renthal has been involved with supporting riders at the amateur level longer than any of our competitors and our handlebars and chainwheels have won more national championships than all of them combined.  We understand the importance of offering support at the grassroots level and that having a direct connection between the racers who use our products and us is imperative.

To apply for sponsorship with Renthal, you must visit our dedicated sponsorship website at www.renthalsupport.com, which allows you to upload all your information directly from our support site and attach a resume in Word or PDF format.  For those riders who are a member of the Hookit website, you can visit our homepage at http://www.hookit.com/members/renthal/home/ for up to date information and news.

Sponsorships are available for all disciplines of riding, so whether you ride MX, Offroad, ATV, Roadrace or anything in between, we’re looking for riders to represent us in a professional manner on and off the track.

We cornered JCR/Honda racer Colton Udall to get some questions answered about his 2011 ISDE ride for Team USA.

Colton where was the 2011 ISDE held?
In the Kotka, Hamina Region of Finland.

How did you get your invitation to compete?
Kurt Caselli invited me after Kyle Summers dropped out.

Tell me about your bike set up?
I raced the E1 class on a 2011 CRF250R. I went with a normal off-road setup with a stock reliable motor. The Pro Circuit suspension was setup soft for long hours on rough terain. I used Dunlop Enduro tires and Pro Circuit built me a quiet 94 Db pipe. My gearing was 13/48, just tall enough for fast road and short enough for technical sections. I used a Renthal 996 handle bar and AME full waffle grips.

What sections of the course stood out to you.
The transfer sections on days 1 and 2 were really tough. Super deep mud and really slippery sections made it difficult to ride.

What was the most fun?
The perfectly moist fire roads on the transfer sections were really fun! They reminded me a lot of Baja, except no dust. The motocross test on day 6 was also fun.

What was the most difficult part of this event?
Making the right decisions in the mud, line choice and traction was very critical. The special tests were also very difficult to go fast in, some tests consisted of giant deep sand whoops, some had tree roots, rocks and slick mud. It was a true test of an off-road rider.

Did your experience change your impression of international riders?
Yes, in a big way! There are so many great riders, I was taught a lesson daily. I think that everybody should do an international race! Most US national highly ranked racers don’t have a clue what’s really out there.

Was ISDE what you imagined?
No, I thought it would be easier. It is a very fast learning curve and you must always be on your toes!

Do you want to go back?
Ask me in a week or two! Haha Next year is in Germany! More rocks, mud and even snow! I will be there if I am invited.

How was it working with the other Team members?
Kurt Caselli, Russell Bobbitt, Destry Abbott, Nate Kanney, and Jimmy Jarrett are all great riders. They really earned the 3rd place for SA. Plus they are all positive and fun guys to be around!

Anyone you would like to thank?
Johnny Campbell(JCRHonda), Dana from General Tire, Joe Johnson, my girlfriend Krysta and Kurt Caselli.

In the AMA Pro Motocross series we’ve seen the consistency of TwoTwo Motorsport’s Chad Reed pay off as he leads the points over Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto, who has had the speed to win on any weekend but just hasn’t had the consistency of Reed.  In the Lites class, it’s been all about the dominating performance of the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki team with their riders handing over the red plate like a hot potato after each round.  Dean Wilson has managed to keep the points lead heading into the off weekend over Blake “El Chupacabra” Baggett who sits 2nd in points and their teammate Tyla Rattray sitting 3rd.  In the WMX series, Ashley Fiolek ripped off two massive holeshots this past weekend at Red Budd to go 1-1 for the overall and extend her points lead over 2nd place.

In the FIM World Motocross series we have seen the Red Bull Teka KTM team consistently up front and new red plate holder Antonio Cairoli working his way back into the top spot of the series standings after an impressive win at the Swedish round.  Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s Clement Desalle sits 2nd in points as the series heads to Germany this weekend.  Speaking of Germany, this weekend’s race will see hometown kid Ken Roczen looking to expand his points lead in the MX2 class over his Red Bull Teka KTM teammate Jeffrey Herlings.

North of the border in the Monster Energy Canadian Motocross nationals, after 4 of 9 rounds have been completed, it has been total domination by the Yamaha Red Bull Blackfoot Fox Racing squad of Colton Facciotti and Dusty Klatt in the MX1 class with both riders sitting 1-2 in the points respectively.  In the MX2 class it’s more of the same with Blackfoot’s Tyler Medaglia holding a healthy points leads over his nearest rival.

Switching to offroad racing, in the Can-am GNCC series it’s been a close battle between FMF Makita Suzuki’s Josh Strang and FMF KTM’s Charlie Mullins after 8 rounds.  The two have battled non-stop thus far and sit atop the Leaderboard heading into this weekend’s round in Ohio.

In the WORCS series, FMF KTM’s Kurt Caselli has been the most consistent up front, and with the most wins (2) leads Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert by comfortable margin in the Pro 1 class.  The WORCS series is currently on “Summer Break” and will resume racing in late August in Washington state.

All of the riders mentioned in this article use Renthal handlebars, sprockets and grips on their quest to earn titles in their respective disciplines.  With 153 World Titles and 132 US titles, Renthal Builds Championships.
