Waterloo Suzuki Dealer Tri-City Cycle Supports Millson in 2009
Hamilton Ontario (Canada) - April 15, 2009 -- Waterloo Ontario-based Suzuki dealer Tri-City Cycle & Sport will join forces with RMP Racing's Pro Superbike racer Ross Millson for the coming season. With Tri-City Cycle's support Millson will contest the National Pro Superbike class aboard a Suzuki GSX-R1000.
Tri-City Cycle & Sport was established in 1990 with only two employees. In 1995 they became an authorized Suzuki dealer. Although Tri-City Cycle prides itself on maintaining its small business stature it has grown to 13 employees to ensure customers receive the finest service when in need of parts, service or riding gear.
Not only is 2009 Suzuki's 100th year in operation, it also marks Millson's fourth consecutive year competing aboard a Suzuki at the National level in Canada.
In 2005, Millson began racing in the Suzuki SV650 Cup development class and the following year he placed second in both the National and Regional Amateur 600 Sport Bike Championships as well as second in the Regional Amateur Superbike class. Millson capped off the '06 season with a third place class finish in the inaugural SunTrust MOTO-ST 8 Hours At Daytona as a member of the all-Canadian Go BIG Racing squad aboard a Suzuki SV650.
Turning Pro for 2007, Millson finished third in the Rookie chase and 11th in the National Superbike standings. As a member of the Go Big Racing squad, Millson and his team-mates finished second overall in US-based MOTO-ST Sport Twins Championship, which earned Millson and his Go BIG Racing team-mate Paul Glenn a Motorcycle Award of Excellence (MAX Award) in the International Competition category.
Millson began last season with a sixth place finish at the opening round of the 2008 Parts Canada Superbike Championship and he wrapped up the season ninth overall.
"Suzuki has been a part of my way of life for four years now. Competing aboard a Suzuki during their Centennial is an added honour," said Millson. "I'm looking forward to working with a family and community oriented business like Tri-City Cycle."
RMP Racing will be receiving additional support from other businesses located in the Waterloo Region. Millson and RMP Racing's development rider Steven Nickerson are pleased to announce the return of New Hamburg-based Infinet Designs, which has supported the racers with marketing assistance for the past three years. Millson and Nickerson are also delighted to welcome back Waterloo's digital imaging experts Essential Image. Essential Image partnered with RMP Racing in 2008 to supply the team with their expertise and digitally printed products to market all the team's sponsors throughout the season.
On Saturday, April 18 at 'On The Park' in Toronto, Millson and his #39 Suzuki GSX-R1000 will be representing team sponsor Inside Motorcycles at the Parts Canada Superbike Championship Preview Day and fundraiser for the Andrew Trevitt Fund and the Canadian Rider Safety Fund. Appearances by other top Canadian racers, silent auctions and motorcycle race bike displays will be among the highlights of this event and fundraiser.
