SBS LENDS A HAND TO BAUMAN AT STURGIS Briar Bauman, who won the American Flat Track TT twins race at the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, South Dakota, is the only racer to beat the Indian team this year, and now he's done it twice aboard a Zanotti Racing Kawa- saki. SBS is a Zanotti Racing supporter. "SBS is proud to support Zanotti Racing. There is a reason why Zanotti's bikes are considered the MotoGP bikes of American Flat Track, but they don't just look fast, they are fast," said Chris Jensen, SBS North American market manager. "Briar has done a great job this year, and we look forward to many more wins in the future. "It was a great night at the Buffalo Chip TT. I'm happy to get my second win of the season and continue to grow with the Zanotti Racing team. A big thanks to SBS for helping us get stopped the whole evening. It was cru- cial in the win," Bauman said. SBS supplies both the OEM and aftermar- ket and offers a full range of compounds for all riding styles.

THOR INTRODUCES 2018 RACEWEAR Thor MX introduced its 2018 racewear collection, featuring completely updated designs to the successful Fuse, Prime Fit and Pulse chassis, accompanied by a brand new price-point option in the new Sector range. The Fuse racewear line represents the premium of everything that Thor has devel- oped in 50 years of motocross. It is tough, functional, comfortable and the design team crushed it with graphics this season. The Fuse jersey features a minimal-seam-design for comfort and vented back and underarms, while the Fuse pant offers stretch panels in waistline, pre-curved Rapid Flex knee and 500D Cordura saddle. Prime Fit has developed a significant fol- lowing in the few years since being released; where the racer looking for a more tradi- tional fit and feel will lean toward the Fuse chassis, the fans of Prime Fit really enjoy the athletic stretch jersey with compression sleeves and lightweight and flexible pants featuring ultra-light thermal welded panels in the knee and rear yoke. The Pulse line has always been considered the "workhorse" of the Thor racewear offer- ing with premium features like set in style sleeves, four way stretch cuffs and collar, pre-curved shape to the pant with ratchet- style closure and leather knee panels, at an extremely competitive price.
