Team riders were in full force this past weekend in Redmond Oregon for the ABA Northwest Nationals. The crew was small in number but everyone rode great and made this weekend work well for themselves. The drive from Nor*Cal was a quick little 8 hour trip that had everything from sleet and snow to good old black ice! The crew arrived safely Thursday night and hit the town before settling into the weekends hotel and getting ready for a solid weekend of riding.
Highlights of the trip were our Single A Pros of Jesse Langland and Kyle Zondervan both making the main event on both days of the national. Jesse would even start off Saturday with the low points headed into the third round and was hungry for the overall win! An outside gate and a first turn ball up would keep him from the win but he has served notice that he is a threat in the class and right where he needs to be with a few California races quickly approaching.

Crupi Parts, Inc is proud to announce the signing of Myles Wamsley. Myles is actually one of Crupi's better stories to tell. Myles joined Crupi's Team Green Co-Sponsorship program nearly 2 years ago as a Novice rider and quickly moved up in rank. Myles continued to get better and better due to his determination and perhaps the fact that has been trained by ex-Crupi Factory Team Manager Turnell Henry didn't hurt either! Being true to the Crupi Team Green Program, Crupi took notice of Myles rise up the ranks as he began making National Event mains. We could no longer see Myles as just a co-sponsored rider so we moved him up to the full Factory Team! This type of determination and consistency with Crupi's Team Green Program is proof positive that anyone can benefit from this program.
Myles is from Henderson, Nevada and has qualified to represent both Crupi and Team USA at the World Championships in Adelaide Australia this summer.
