MV Agusta USA will be supporting riders Taylor Knapp and Christian Cronin in the 76th Daytona 200 race on-board the MV Agusta F3 675.
In one of the world’s most revered endurance races, Knapp and Cronin will spearhead the brand’s representation with technical support led by MV Agusta USA head technician Bruce Meyers, in what will be an intense battle on the 3.51-mile speedway/infield course.
Both riders have an enviable record of successful racing in different categories and see the F3 model as a perfect contender to take the bike all the way to the finish line.
Knapp, an experienced and coveted rider, visited Daytona in 2005 placing 9th and had always promised himself another race at the legendary track where the race can be won or lost just as much in the pits than through the grueling lap after lap ride at full throttle.
Cronin too has had his mettle tested before now; a local legend in New Hampshire, he’ll push the team to ensure a strong finish can be achieved placing great importance on practice and qualifying stages for optimum bike setup.
In the garage and pits, the two riders will heavily lean on the technical experience of Meyers who has seen success with Team BCM/Meyers Performance in regional, national and international racing series.
The race starts 1 p.m. (EST) March 18, 2017 at the Daytona International Speedway. For more information: www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com
