American Beta GNCC regular Chris Bach has committed to compete in all 10 rounds of the AMA Rekluse National Enduro series on a 2012 Beta 450 RR. The likeable Indiana racer will add the enduro series to his regular GNCC race schedule.
"With the growth and interest of the National Enduro series over the last couple years, the choice to make a full time run at the series was a pretty simple one. Being as I've never done this series before, I really look forward to racing new venues and learning the ropes along the way. I think it's fair to say this series will continue to grow, so I am excited to become a part of it as well as show off the Beta motorcycle brand to new group of racing enthusiasts." Bach explains.
American Beta will be preparing a bike built just for the enduro series. Ben Weathers from Powersport Grafx will be helping Chris out at the events. Beta's Marketing Manager Tim Pilg describes the details, "This was actually Chris' decision which shows us that he is 100% committed to put our Beta's on top of the box! His attitude is stronger than ever and combined with our 450RR, we feel he will be a major contender. It also gives us the opportunity to test the Beta in an enduro atmosphere."
Bach will also run the entire GNCC series, kicking off the first week of March in Florida and will be receiving extra support from Bob Brewster of WMR Competition Performance based in Stuart Florida with their Off Road Manager George Pollard building Chris' race motors.
Bach describes his outlook; "2012 is shaping up to be a great season for the American Beta racing team. With added factory support from Europe, and joining forces again with one of my 2010 supporters, WMR/Nihilo Concepts, we are well on our way to building a championship team. With all these people behind me building the best bikes and supplying me with the best parts, I want to repay them by showing the world we will be major contenders in the GNCC and National Enduro championships."
Chris Bach's sponsors include Factory Beta Racing, RidePG.com, FMF, Fly Racing, Maxxis, Kal Gard Lubricants, DC Shoes, Fasst Company, WMR Competition Performance, Hammer Nutrition, SIDI Boots, CV4, Scott, Dirt Tricks, Regina Chains, and Concept 2.
