Shenandoah Honda and Offroadchampions are excited to announce their new team with 2008 XC2 GNCC champion Thad Duvall. The West Virginia native is scheduled to race the GNCC and the AMA Rekluse National Enduro series on a Honda 450 CRF.
Thad Duvall: "I'm excited and very thank full towards John Ross (owner of Shenandoah Honda) and Erik Nijkamp (offroadchampions.com) for this opportunity. I will start testing the Honda in the next few weeks with John Ross and other technical sponsors. I can't wait for the first Enduro in Sumter and later on the GNCC opener in Florida".
John Ross has been involved with HM Honda Zanardo’s (EWC team) effort during their North America EWC efforts in 2006 and 2007. Ross gained valuable knowledge and the team is confident that Duvall will have a competitive bike. Ross has selected a group a companies/sponsors based on quality to support the team. The program has not yet been finalized and a announcement with all sponsors will be made before the first National Enduro on January 29.
Offroadchampions have been working with Italian based Team Jolly Racing for the last year and will be working with Duvall and Ross closely to get the best results and exposure.
More information regarding the team can be addressed to Erik Nijkamp
