Bike Rental Program Now Available For All GNCC and Select National Enduro Races





















The Maxxis/KLiM/DirtWise Schools and DVDs KTM Race team is stoked to announce a very exciting addition to their 2014 race event operations – the DirtWise “Ready to Race” bike rental program. This new endeavor allows any Offroad enthusiast from all across the world, whether they are just a weekend warrior right through to a Pro level race win contender, to now race at any round of the two most prestigious and recognized Offroad Championships in the USA for just a mere $600 per event – just show up, pay your race entry, and then go get on a proven Championship winning DirtWise Race team bike that will be all set-up to the specific desires and needs of that individual rider. The bike will be a KTM machine and it will be “Ready to Race”! All registered riders have the opportunity to also enroll in a full day of private one-on-one skills improvement training, conducted two days prior to the scheduled race event, with seasoned DirtWise Instructor and GNCC Pro XC2 Champion, Jason Thomas to maximize their on track performance.

DirtWise founder and Race team owner Shane Watts, both a former GNCC National Overall Champion and National Enduro race Overall winner, is ecstatic with the formulation of the DirtWise “Ready to Race” bike rental program. “I am pinging now that we have this initiative up and going and ready to fulfill the dreams of many enthusiasts out there. For years now I have fielded heaps of enquiries from plenty of punters from all around the world, plus also just from the other side of the USA and Canada, who have wanted to have a crack at racing in either a GNCC or a National Enduro event. Unfortunately, until this DirtWise “Ready to Race” program was established, there hasn’t been a financially viable and sound way for these riders to experience the thrill, exhilaration, and pleasure of roosting around at one of these world class events!”

“While I will personally attend quite a few of these events to help with having each DirtWise “Ready to Race” rider achieve the most enjoyable and fun time at the event, there is no way we could conduct this program without having our own Jason Thomas on board. Jason is now a key integral part of the current and future success of the DirtWise brand, and he was a magnificent addition to our program when he joined us in early 2013.”

Thomas is over the moon with this new opportunity, saying, “A few years ago I had a vision to set up a program like this but it just had not been possible until I had the strength and resources of the DirtWise brand to support this idea. To say this is a dream come true is a major understatement and I am so fired up to make the DirtWise “Ready to Race” program hugely successful and a no brainer for domestic and international riders alike. We already have two international riders from England confirmed for the first two events. I can’t wait to have a rip roaring time with all of those who join us at each event, to maximize their on track enjoyment and performance, plus to become life long friends with them just like I have with the huge number of students I have instructed at all of the recent DirtWise schools that I have been conducting.”

The DirtWise “Ready to Race” program will commence on March 9 for GNCC (Rd. 1), and will run for the entire duration of the GNCC series, and at select National Enduro events. Jason Thomas will facilitate the day to day operation of the DirtWise “Ready to Race” program, plus he will be overseeing the factory team level preparation of each high quality, current model KTM rental bike (capacity options include 125cc, 250cc 2stroke, 450cc 4stroke, plus others), all of which will be equipped with the industry leading products and accessories that each Maxxis/KLiM/DirtWise race team Pro rider uses, such as Maxxis tires, Flexx handlebars, Stuk Grafx, Dirt Tricks sprockets and brake rotors, G2 MX handguards, FMF Exhausts, DP brake pads and clutch plates, SRT chains and radiator guards, DT1 Airfilters, IMS oversize fuel tanks, and TMDesigns chain guides and sliders.

Available bikes will be allocated on a “first come, first served basis”. Only a limited supply of bikes are available for rent and they are all expected to be reserved well in advance of each event. Full and comprehensive race event pit duties will be provided by the vastly experienced, and 2012 GNCC XC2 Championship winning, Maxxis/KLiM/DirtWise KTM Race team personnel. All interested riders can gain further information about this “turn key” support program by emailing dirtwise@shanewatts.com, calling Jason Thomas at Ph.
