Corner Grass Racing Team Ready For 2010

_____Presented by:


Spring has sprung and along with it comes a much anticipated racing season for the Corner Grass Racing Team (CGRT). The ice racing spikes have been replaced with rubber knobbies and CGRT in excited to start the season with the opening round of the CMA Alberta Harescramble series this coming April 10/11th weekend in Lethbridge, Alberta.

The five member team will once again be the official Canadian Husaberg Factory supported team lead by veteran Shane Cuthbertson whom is looking to improve upon his 2009 Canadian Enduro Championship (CEC) 3rd place overall finish in the highly contested E3 category. This year Cuthbertson will be equipped with the all new 2010 Husaberg FX450 and is anxious to get the season underway. He will however have to wait until June for his first taste of dirt as some elected surgeries during the off-season are keeping him away from the bike for now. "I am really chomping at the bit to get riding and it is taking all I have to keep from swinging my leg over the 'Berg. My main focus this year will be the CEC series; so much so that I have elected not to compete at Erzberg or Romaniacs this year in order to aid in my recovery and training for the series. I am going to be fresh and fit; ready to put my best effort into Canada's premier series!"

CGRT's mission statement is to 'provide the foundation to enable a long term focused CANADIAN effort to promote and compete in off-road motorcycle events throughout Canada, USA, and Europe.' This year
the team has really stepped up and will be supporting 16 year old Cole Dobovich in his venture to become one of the elite riders in Canada. Cole has come through the ranks within the local Alberta series and has really shown the drive and desire to improve. "We are really excited to have Cole on board! He is a great kid, has unbelievable family support, and is already a very accomplished motorcycle rider. We really want to give back to our sport and what better way than to lend our resources and experience to a young rider of his caliber" commented team manager Lee Fryberger. Cole will be competing in the Expert class this weekend aboard the 2010 Husaberg FX450, followed by several local Off-Road and MX events in preparation to represent CGRT at the CEC series where he will look to make his mark in the Amateur 'A' class.

Nick Riewe, Jay McGregor, and Lee Fryberger round out the team and all have plans to compete regularly in both the Alberta provincial series and the Canadian Enduro Championships. In addition to
racing, these gentlemen go to extreme efforts in promoting several marquee Canadian events such as the Corner Grass Harescramble (June 26/27) and Canada's First Extreme Hard Enduro - XTINCTION (August 21/22).

CGRT relies heavily on strong partners to help us attain our goals and are proud to announce that Husaberg, A&E Racing, Motovan, Ronwood Enterprises, Lee Built, UFA Petroleum, Limenine Graphics,
Opti Lubricants, Rekluse, and Sosa Original have all continued their support for 2010. Two new partners to the team this year are Xtreme Hot Oil Services and Airoh Helmets both of whom we are very excited to have on board.
