(September 25, 2012) - K-Tech Suspension is pleased to report another successful weekend of racing in both the GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing Series and the BSB British Superbike Championship. In AMA Pro Road Racing, K-Tech Suspension equipped racers scored three pole positions, and three race wins in the second to last round of the season at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In the BSB British Superbike Championship, K-Tech equipped racers took three wins and several podium finishes!

In the AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike class, Roger Hayden rode his #54 National Guard Jordan Suzuki GSX-R 1000 Superbike at a blistering pace all weekend. Roger claimed his first Pole Position and took the race win on Saturday in a great battle up front using K-Tech 20DDS front fork cartridges and a 35DDS rear shock. His teammate Ben Bostrom would follow up that success on Sunday with a great third place finish on his #23 Jordan Suzuki GSX-R 1000 Superbike, also equipped with K-Tech Suspension components.

Bobby Fong took fifth position in AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike qualifying with his #50 Meen Motorsports Racing Yamaha YZF 600 R6, and would go on to finish third in Saturday's race event. This was Fong's second trip to the podium in as many weekends - his Yamaha YZF 600 R6 featuring K-Tech 20DDS front fork cartridges and a 35DDS rear shock.

Celtic Orient Express Racing's James Rispoli took double victories and the Pole Position in the AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport class, in a great weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Rispoli's #1 GSX-R 600 carries K-Tech 20DDS front fork cartridges and a 35DDS rear shock, which allowed him to pull some distance away from the competition in both events.

In the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 class, Pole sitter Tyler O'Hara had a close battle up front for the entire race and would bring home his K-Tech equipped Harley-Davidson XR1200 in second place. O'Hara's machine features K-Tech IDS front fork cartridges and 35MTS rear shocks, and as the season draws to an end he sits only two points from first place.

Across the pond in BSB British Superbikes, K-Tech equipped riders swept the podium in both races, with the top four in race one (Shane Byrne, Josh Brookes, Alex Lowes, and Luca Scassa) finishing first through fourth, all using K-Tech KTR-3 front forks and 35DDS rear shocks. In race two, Tyco Suzuki's Josh Brookes notched another race win to lead the series on his K-Tech equipped GSX-R 1000, with Byrne and Lowes rounding out the K-Tech podium.

In BSB British SuperSport K-Tech Suspension equipped riders swept the podium in both races, and claimed all top ten positions in race one. In the first 12 lap Supersport 600cc race of the weekend on Saturday afternoon Christian Iddon (Oxford TAG Racing Triumph) took the race win from Jack Kennedy (Martrain Racing Yamaha) with Richard Cooper (Oxford TAG Racing Triumph) taking third, all three riders were using K-Tech 20DDS front fork cartridges and 35DDS rear shock absorbers. In the second 15 lap race on Sunday, American PJ Jacobsen (Tyco Suzuki by TAS Racing) took the race win in only his second outing in the class, with Christian Iddon in second place 0.110 seconds behind him, Glen Richards (Smiths Gloucester Racing Triumph) took the final podium position a further 0.152 seconds behind, with all three riders using K-Tech 20DDS front fork cartridges and 35DDS shock absorbers. K-Tech riders took nine of the top ten positions in race two at Assen.
