Supercrosser Villopoto endorses Falken tires
Villopoto has already demonstrated his dominance on the track, having
earned three AMA Motocross (MX) Lites titles and the 2007 Supercross (SX)
Lites West championship. He suffered a season-ending injury in April 2010
during Round 14 in St. Louis, and has spent the balance of the year
recuperating from his accident. He will return to action in 2011, again
riding for the Monster Energy Kawasaki team.
"We are delighted to welcome Ryan to the Falken Tire family," stated Nick
Fousekis, Falken Director of Motorsports. "Anyone who is a fan of
Supercross is well aware of RV's accomplishments and knows he is a tough
competitor at every event. We know RV will be more determined than ever
in 2011, competing in the AMA Monster Energy Supercross series, and Falken
is proud to be associated with him, as we are with the series as the
Official Truck Tire of AMA Monster Energy Supercross." Ryan also will be
featured in Falken's new television commercial which airs during each
event televised by CBS.
"I am really excited to be a part of the Falken Tire team and their entry
as The Official Truck Tire of AMA Supercross," added Villopoto. "It is so
cool when new companies step up to our sport and I can't explain how good
it feels to be the face!"
