Geoff May is a true working class hero. He rode as a privateer during the first few years of his AMA career, and in 2004 put on an impressive performance in the Superbike class to finish fifth overall. As a result of his strong performance he earned the title of top privateer in the American Superbike class.
In addition to taking 15 top-10 finishes throughout the 18-race season, May also won the 2004 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Cup Final and set a new overall motorcycle lap record during the F-USA weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. His consistent riding and great work ethic eventually earned him a ride with M4 EMGO Suzuki for the 2005 season.
May had another great 2006 season with top-five results in both Supersport and Superstock on the M4 EMGO Suzuki. Mr. Consistent in ’06, May never managed a win but captured many podiums. Sticking with M4 EMGO for 2007, May tried to shake the winless moniker but had to settle for seventh instead in the American Superbike Championship.
May joined Aaron Yates aboard the Jordan Suzuki team for the ’08 season and picked up his first career victory during the Superstock final at Miller Motorsports Park. May picked up three more podium finishes in 2009 and finished eighth overall. For 2010, May moved to the Daytona SportBike class with hopes of winning his first championship on his privately funded GMR Racing Team. Once again the 30-year-old couldn’t reach the top step, and he finished 11th overall.
In 2010 May kept the Buell name alive and kicking in AMA Pro Racing when he campaigned an 1125R in American SuperBike. May will continue campaigning the Buell in American SuperBike for the 2011 season.
