The 2010 team will include Steven Clarke and Matt Lemoine, who will contest the East Coast Supercross Lites Championship Series as well as the AMA Outdoor Lites Championship Series. Sherri Cruse will compete in the Women’s Motocross Championships.
This is Team Suzuki City’s third year in existence and with each year the team has gained momentum and improved their race results. In 2009, Team Suzuki City riders placed solidly inside the top ten of the AMA East Coast Lites Championship Series.
Steven Clarke is returning the Team Suzuki City in 2010 and has high expectations for himself. Clarke said, “Everything is coming along great. I’m healthy and looking forward to Indy. If I ride to my potential, I know I can easily come away top 5 in points.”
Matt Lemoine, new to Team Suzuki City is anticipating an awesome 2010 race season. “I’m 100% happy, the team is great. The guys have done everything to make the bike exactly what I want. I’m looking forward to Indy so we can get to racing,” said an excited Lemoine.
Sherri Cruse finished third overall in the 2009 Women’s Motocross Championship is also new to Team Suzuki City this year. Full of enthusiasm, Sherri said, “I am really excited about being part of Team Suzuki City. I think with their bike and race knowledge we are going to have a great season. I especially like working with creative and positive people and am happy to be representing women’s pro motocross on the team”
Team owner, Michael Nasakaitis is looking forward to the 2010 race season, “Everything is going great with the team, the guys are riding well and are ready for Indy. The whole team has worked really hard to prepare for this season, and with Matt, Steven and Sherri on board, I know this is going to be a terrific year”.
Suzuki City is also very excited to announce their partnership with Nitro Circus for the 2010 race season. This is an exciting venture for both Team Suzuki City and Nitro Circus. Nitro Circus has become one of the most recognized brands in the action sports world. Travis Pastrana and his crew’s action adventures have become as much mainstream entertainment as Supercross racing.
Andy Bell, Nitro Circus “Partnering with the Team Suzuki City SX/MX team is an exciting move for Nitro Circus as the entire Nitro crew are huge SX fans. The partnership made even more sense considering team riders Matt Lemoine and Sherri Cruse are both close friends of the Nitro Circus family, having appeared on multiple episodes of the show throwing down some pretty big stunts of their own.”
Nasakaitis adds, “We are excited to be working with Nitro Circus, the level of excitement they bring to everything they do is unbelievable”.
Look for Team Suzuki City riders Clarke, Lemoine and Cruse to bring home great results in 2010.
