Hudson Valley Motorcycles to Provide Kawasaki Support to #RIDEHVMC Freeman Racing Team for Select 2019 American Flat Track Rounds

Posted on behalf of #RIDEHVMC and Hudson Valley Motorcycles

Ossining, NY ( February 7th, 2019 ) - New York motorcycle dealership Hudson Valley Motorcycles announces support for James Rispoli and Corey Alexander in the east coast based 2019 American Flat Track rounds. Based in Ossining, New York since 1966, Hudson Valley Motorcycles has supported amateur and professional racers for over 50 years, across all disciplines - from motocross to roadracing, and now flat track. Hudson Valley Motorcycles, one of the oldest remaining Kawasaki retailers in the United States, will be supporting the duo with 2019 Kawasaki KX-450F’s to compete in five to eight rounds of the AFT calendar.

James Rispoli, runner up to Brad Baker in the 2009 AMA Pro Singles Championship, has a long and storied history in flat track before making the switch to professional roadracing - racking up numerous victories, podiums, and three AMA Pro Supersport Championships here in the United States. In 2019 Rispoli returns home from the British Superbike Series where he has been competing for the past 5 seasons.

Rispoli is anxious to prove that his flat track roots are strong and commented: “Everything has happened really quickly to put this deal together for the 2019 AFT season,” said Rispoli, “and despite the rush, I am really excited to return to my roots.  After several years of roadracing, I feel I have some unfinished business in American Flat Track.  I am super thankful for the support from Hudson Valley Motorcycles and Kieran Clarke - without their contribution we wouldn’t be starting the season at all. I am excited to put my road-racing experience to use at Daytona in a few short weeks and hopefully we can raise the support needed to make a full season as I know I have potential to be a championship contender.”

By comparison, Alexander has just begun to cut his teeth in American Flat Track, after making his transition to AFT in 2018. Alexander, himself a former roadracing AMA Supersport champion, hopes to continue his progress in the singles class after scoring points in his first season ever on dirt. I’m excited to be back alongside James like old times and to learn from him throughout 2019. Last year was very trying season but I hope to continue my steady progression and be more and more competitive throughout the year.

The RideHVMC Freeman Racing team continues to actively seek support to complete a full season of the American Flat Track series.
