Long Beach, CA- Fasst Company, the manufacture of the 100% American Made Flexx Handlebar System is looking forward to another great year in the GNCC series. Over the off season Fasst Company’s race support director Chris Avery strove to help the numerous riders applying for Fasst Company’s Flexx Handlebar System controlled pro and amateur teams. “We’ve worked really hard to have the best of the best on Flexx Handlebar System; the demand for it at all levels of racing is extremely high. Putting together another strong GNCC program was a challenge; I wanted to get everything right for each rider. We work hard to have a great relationship with each rider, while striving to provide all the performance we can to allow them to perform at their best. Our guys are strong, pumped and ready to go!”
Fasst Company is anchoring their team once again by re-signing nine time GNCC champion Bill Ballance. Bill took home four race wins in 2008 and won the championship by over forty points. Look for Bill to run his usual number 1 plate on his Flexx Handlebar controlled YFZ 450.
Joining Bill, will be the factory KTM team. Leading the KTM team into 2009 is Adam McGill. Adam won four rounds in 2008 and is ready to make a run at the championship this season. Alongside McGill on the Flexx Handlebar System controlled Factory KTM’s will be Josh Kirkland and Angel Atwell. Fasst Company’s race support director Chris Avery stated, “I am really excited about having McGill back. He called me all winter to make sure we got this deal done, he didn’t want to race without the Flexx Handlebar! We are stoked to continue our relationship with Adam, Tim Farr and the Factory KTM team.”
Continuing through the roster of Flexx Handlebar controlled riders in the GNCC series are Factory Yamaha’s 2008 XC2 Champion Donald Ockerman, Johnny Gallagher and GT Thunder’s Brandon Sommers. Ockerman made his debt in the XC1 class at the end of 2008 and took home the runner up spot in both races. Brandon is coming off a strong 2008 where he ended the year in 5th. Brandon said, “thanks to the Flexx Handlebar System I can charge through rough sections a lot harder without feeling any fatigue in my little arms”.
Fasst Company has also signed Traci Cecco, Lexie Coulter, Taylor Kiser, Walker Fowler, Warnett/ Can-Am, Mike Penland, Cody Anderson, Kevin Johnston, Santo Derisi, Bryan Cook, Shawn Hess, Brandon Ballance, Kristen Atwell, Jennifer Albright, Bryan Buckhannon, Jerime Dudding, Dirk & Luke DeCesare, Todd Demaree, Michael Swift, Parker Jones, and other select racers.
2008 Women’s Pro champion Traci Cecco will be running her usual Flexx Handlebar Controlled Factory Yamaha YFZ 450 again in 2009. While testing in the off season Avery said, “Traci is an unbelievable rider and watching her battle for the 2008 championship was awesome. I am looking forward to working with her again in 2009.”
In all Fasst Company supported riders brought home 11 championships in the 2008 GNCC series. We look to continue our dominance on the track in 2009. Be sure to stop by the pits of any of our team riders this season to see the latest Fasst Company and Flexx Handlebar products.
