Fisher Outdoor and Shiner Distribution have teamed up to create the Redline Troy Lee Racing team for the 2012 season.
Troy Lee Designs first worked with Redline racing rider and Junior Men British champion Jacob Roberts for the 2011 race season. Team manager Jai Kemp and Fisher brand manager Adam Dayson developed this initial relationship to form Redline Troy Lee Racing BMX team.
For the race season ahead the team will be riding 2012 Redline Flight series frames equipped with Answer Scythe pro carbon forks, Tioga tyres and Shimano DXR cranks. Kitted head to toe in Troy Lee Designs, the team will be wearing customised GP speed shop Jerseys and Pants, topped with the all-new D3 Palmer Helmet. Protection is being provided from Troy Lee’s latest Shock Doctor Pads and off the track the team will be wearing clothing from the Troy Lee casual range.
Troy Lee Brand Manager Jon Sangan said: "Troy Lee Designs has a long and celebrated history in BMX racing, the D2 Helmet has been the choice of pro racers for years and more recently the D3 has given BMXers the ultimate in both protection and design. Redline is a fantastic brand and has an equally rich legacy in BMX racing. We are not only excited but proud to be joining forces for 2012. With the UK hosting both the Olympics and the World BMX championships in 2012 there couldn’t be a better time to launch the Redline Troy Lee Racing team."
Jai Kemp has been the Redline Team Manager for the last five years and will continue to manage the new Redline Troy Lee Racing team for 2012. He said: "I have seen the team grow from strength-to-strength. We have always had the best bikes to ride through Redline and for 2012 the team will have the best race kit on the market too. This is an exciting time for Redline racing, we have a new team for 2012 and with Troy Lee Designs on board I believe we are set for success in 2012."
The team will also be supported by Tioga tyres, Tacx turbo trainers and Airace pumps giving Redline Troy Lee Racing the some of the best equipment available.
The 2012 Redline Troy Lee racing team riders will include Andy Clucas, Jacob Roberts, Ayesha McLelland, Alan Hill and Cal Strickland.
