Beta USA expands their factory enduro team to 3 riders for 2015. Returning to the team are Ohio natives Cory Buttrick and Justin Sode after finishing 10th and 16th respectively in the 2014 series.
New to the Beta Team is Jesse Groemm from New Jersey hot off of his runner up finish in 2014.
Zach Huberty has been retained as the 2015 team manager, helping prep race bikes, organizing travel plans and pit support.
Beta is not only moving forward with their race team but with many new 2 and 4-stroke models available at their expanding dealer network.
"It is great to have partners like Beta to showcase their products and team riders in our series" Alan Randt: NEPG
"We are looking good going into the 2015 NEPG series, our team is the strongest that it has ever been and we should see some solid finishes. We feel Enduro is very important as 60% of our dealer network is back east and our team will represent these dealers well. We would like to thank Alan Randt and his crew for putting on a great series." Tim Pilg, Beta USA Marketing Manager.
