Following Fillmore: Hometown Boys Do Good
Thursday, March 21, 2013
The webseries, “Following Fillmore,” returns with Episode 2, which catches up with Chris at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, where KTM featured its expanded road division and announced Taylor Knapp as its newest AMA Pro SuperBike factory rider.
Knapp and Fillmore have more in common than riding the RC8R in AMA Pro competition. Both are from Michigan, living within minutes of each other in fact, both have fathers who did the wrenching in the early stages of their racing careers, both are soft-spoken and both are looking to put KTM in competition with Yamaha and Suzuki, two marques currently dominating the AMA Pro Road Racing series.
Find out how Knapp landed his ride with Factory KTM, learn more about how the two riders came to know one another and see how they’re getting on as teammates. Plus, enjoy a sneak peek into Episode 3 which follows Fillmore and Knapp to Chuckwalla Raceway, where they take part in a special ride to honor Rocco Horvath, a young rider recently paralyzed in a road racing accident.
