Red Torpedo casual apparel for bikers – revered in the UK and Europe for their design and build ethos – have crossed the pond and signed Jared Mees, 2017 AMA Flat Track Twins Champion as their newest brand ambassador, it was announced today.
“We are over the moon to be working with Jared this year. He joins our fantastic posse of world-renowned racers, our Red Riders – John McGuinness, Guy Martin, Conor Cummins, and Lee Johnston – all of whom are delighted to have him on board,” says Bill Gordon, CEO.
“Flat Track or ‘Speedway’ as we call it in the UK, is the most exciting and challenging motorcycle racing sport on the USA calendar. As a brand that pushes the boundaries in terms of our design and production values, and is rooted in motorcycle racing – Gear With Grit, Built For Speed – the fit with Jared Mees in the USA is perfect.”
Mees, who rides for the Indian Wrecking Crew, is coming off of an epic year completing an in-season Dirt Track Grand Slam, with 17 podiums in 18 races.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the Red Torpedo brand. I love the gear”, says Mees. “My team works very hard, and to have my own line of signature speed apparel – alongside of some of the fastest racers on the planet – is very cool.”
