The MotoConcepts Smartop Racing Team held a team introduction on Friday and Lucas Oil MX Park. Team owner, Mike Genova, introduced the riders of the team as well as the new title sponsor. Smartop is an innovative spa cover said to replace standard hot tub covers and last a lifetime. The new sponsor brings a new look to the team for 2013. The team colors are now white and red.
The team is made up of Mike Alessi, competing in the premier 450 class while Jake Canada takes the reigns in the 250 West class both competing in outdoors as well. The East 250 rider is Gavin Faith with a supercross only contract.
The plan was to have an introduction and then an opportunity to shoot the riders on the Supercross track but due to rain, all we got were some parking lot 12 o’clock wheelies from the trio.
