The DirtWise/Maxxis/KLIM Race team is excited to announce its team roster for the 2015 race season, as it heads into Round 1 of the GNCC series, which starts this weekend in Florida.

Returning to the team for his third year will be former GNCC XC2 Pro Champion, Jason Thomas. Aiming for another strong run at the XC2 Championship in 2015, Thomas has impressed well during the pre-season regional races with some commanding victories. "This is the best I've felt with my preparation and speed on the bike for years. I can't wait for the scoreboard to tell my story!” Thomas said confidently.

Meanwhile, Josh Weisenfels joins the team for another crack at GNCC glory that was so cruelly cut short several years ago by major injury. "Speed is not an issue for me, so I just need to get a few solid races and results in at the beginning of the season then I'll be in a great position to show everyone the true capabilities and race winning talent that I possess!”

Third team member, Drew Higgins from Texas, has made a calculated and impressive start to the 2015 season by carded two 2nd place finishes at the first two rounds of the National Enduro series, as he chases the Championship in the Expert/AA class. "I'm so grateful for the DirtWise/Maxxis/KIM team to give me this opportunity of some great support as I try to win this Championship and progress to the Pro class. With the support of all our team sponsors this would be so much harder for my family and I to make this happen!”

In addition to our returning sponsors, we are lucky to have some new support this year from HBD MotoGrafx, Scorpion Helmets, Task Racing Helmet lights, Spectro oils, and the awesome exhaust pipes from SRT Offroad - these companies and their products are going to help give us that extra little advantage that is so critical when racing at the highest level!"
