As a lot of you know already, I am the 2017 Roland Sands Super Hooligan National Champion! It was quite the journey. I wanted to share with you how it all happened, as well as some stories from the year as I chased the title. The start of the 2018 Super Hooligans series is just over a week away, so I better tell this now before it's all forgotten! First off, I would like to thank my amazing sponsors who played a part in obtaining the championship!
Thor and See See Motorcycles - Thanks for the encouragement, support, and the Harley-Davidson Street 750 to race! Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to work on the bike, get parts for it, and help me chase this title anyway you could!
EDR Performance and K-Tech Suspension - Thank you Eric Dorn of EDR and Skip Dowling from K-Tech Suspension for coming together to get me dialed in mid-season with new 25mm fork cartridges, and a pair of Tracker shocks! It was by far the biggest upgrade I made to the bike all season. Thank you Eric for the setup help!
