Hendersonville, North Carolina: Öhlins USA is increasing its paddock presence at AMA Pro Road Racing events in 2012, to meet the needs of contracted teams and privateers. There will be four, count ’em, four Öhlins suspension technicians at every AMA national, and a larger mobile workshop for servicing racer’s needs.
Every rider using Öhlins suspension components, including privateers, needs to know that all Öhlins technicians are available at the races to answer questions, address set-up issues, and solve problems. An open invitation stands for all Öhlins equipped racers to discuss suspension recommendations with any technician in the paddock wearing an Öhlins shirt: without appointment, without issue, without delay. In short, if you use Öhlins suspension components, you’re a member of Team Öhlins USA.
Öhlins USA Technician regulars Eric Knight, Brad Stokes and Matthew Hickson are joined in 2012 by contracted Technician Lenny Albin and overseen by Öhlins USA Road Racing Technical Manager John Cornwell. In total, these technicians have over 463 years of experience in motorcycle road racing, or something like that. The reality is, they know the art and science of fine tuning a chassis for rider control and confidence.
Öhlins is the 2011 championship-winning suspension in AMA Superbike, Daytona Sportbike and the overall SuperSport class, and is making every effort to defend its championships. The new and improved TTX MK II shock will soon be announced, as well as the new road race mobile workshop, rounding out Öhlins’ winning trifecta of personnel, product and service.
