For 2018 KMC Wheels is sponsoring the Factory Yamaha team and JGR MX Suzuki(Joe Gibbs Racing) team.
As the Supercross season rapidly approaches, most riders are spending their days at their team’s test tracks in Corona, CA testing the new bikes, parts and gear. This is a great time for sponsors to head out to the track to shoot new product and catchup with the riders before the madness ensues. That is exactly what we did. KMC showed the guys some new wheels, did some interviews and shot some images of them putting in laps on the track. This might seem like the coolest job ever but these guys are one fall away from being out for a season or longer. They really put it all on the line to put on a great show.
Even though they can’t run our wheels on their race vehicles, they do run them on the trucks that are used to get to and from the track, which makes a perfect match. JGR Suzuki rider Weston Peick drives a Toyota Tundra on XD828 Delta Wheels in matte black with tinted clear face. Yamaha rider Cooper Webb drives a Toyota Tundra on XD829 Hoss II wheels in satin black with dark tint finish.
All of their hard work will be on display for everyone to see starting January 6, 2018 at Anaheim Stadium aka A1, the start of 16 rounds that will take them from California to Massachusetts and end in Las Vegas, May 5th.
