AGV Dainese riders storm AMA American Superbike podiums at Road Atlanta

During a sunny weekend in Georgia, the AGV Dainese USA riders reinforced with bravado their presence in AMA Pro Racing, during Round 3 of the series at Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA, last weekend.
In the AMA Pro National Guard American Superbike presented by Parts Unlimited, we were proud of the Superpole results of top Dainese riders Blake Young and Geoff May qualifying 3rd and 4th on the front row, ahead of Jordan Suzuki’s Aaron Yates (8th) on 2nd row, and Team’s Chris Ulrich (12th) on 3rd row.
For a short while we fear for rain as stormy clouds approached the track and got the deep knee sliders out of the box for all our Dainese riders, but luckily, apart from a short rain fall during the Sportbike race, the track remained mostly dry for the weekend.
The AGV Dainese riders rode very strong races, both on Saturday and Sunday with Geoff May making us all very proud at Dainese when he rode his National Guard Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000 to the podium twice, finishing 3rd in both races. On Sunday Geoff and his Dainese team mate Rockstar/Makita Yoshimura Suzuki’s Blake Young had a great battle for 2nd which saw Blake make a final pass in the last laps.
Aaron Yates had a very good weekend too scoring a 5th and 6th, on his Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000, and improving his standing in the series.

In the AMA Pro SuperSport Presented by Shoei, 17year-old Team Suzuki’s Russell Wikle was on track for another podium finish for AGV and Dainese, after his amazing third-place podium finish in the AMA Pro SuperSport season opener at Daytona.

Wikle qualified second on the grid aboard his Suzuki GSX-R600 and was running in the lead group for podium position during the race's opening laps. Unfortunately, a rain shower caught out several of the front-runners, including Russ, bringing out a red flag. Despite very strong effort from his Team Suzuki his machine was too badly damaged to make the restart.
From all at AGV Dainese USA, congratulation to all our riders for racing hard and representing us with pride on the AMA Pro Racing circuit. See you all in Birmingham, Alabama for Round 4.
