Road America event to be opening round

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (April 8, 2005) -- AMA Pro Racing and Troy Lee Designs have announced that the AMA Supermoto Championship event scheduled to be held on May 14 at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, Calif., has been postponed.

In making the announcement, Troy Lee Design's Bob Weber said that his company was just made aware that a special state permit was necessary but that it would be impossible to secure the permit prior to the date. "Our pre-event planning was on schedule and things were in good shape for the event," said Weber. "Unfortunately we then learned about the requirement for this permit, which came as a complete surprise to us. We had no choice but to postpone the event due to timing. The good news is that the Fairgrounds are enthusiastic about this race so we're going to work with AMA Pro Racing to secure another date."

AMA Pro Racing's Vice President of Commercial Development, John Farris concurred. "Obviously we're disappointed that we can't proceed with this event as originally scheduled," said Farris. "However, we're looking forward to working with everyone at Troy Lee Designs to find a suitable replacement date. We both agree that Southern California is an important market for Supermoto so we're hopeful that this race can be rescheduled."

The event scheduled for June 4 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., will now be the opening round of the 2005 AMA Supermoto Championship.
