OPUSA, a subsidiary of Oxford Products Ltd. opened in late 2012 and hired D2M to provide sales management.

“D2M provides an online platform for dealers to engage with vendors, which we thought would be beneficial for our launch into the US market. However, it’s also important for us to have strong representation on the ground and our dealer direct expansion will be driven by a network of sales reps providing regular contact that is vital to our dealers. Our goal going forward is to emulate our parent company and provide dealer direct sales focused on the select brands we work with. We currently have a great selection of products that will continue to grow and we’ll be looking at many other opportunities to grow OPUSA’s business in the US market,” said OPUSA President, Eric McFarlane adding “We’ve had a fantastic reaction to our current products in the US market and want to build on that early success as we get ready to increase our range of products that will be launched at the AIMExpo in Orlando this fall.”

D2M will officially conclude its role with Oxford Products USA Inc. by Oct 10th, 2014.

In the UK, Oxford Products Ltd has been a primary source for leading brands like Alpinestars and HJC for many years. They export their own products to more than 60 countries worldwide and have been in the powersports industry for over 40 years. The company’s growing product range encompasses the full spectrum of aftermarket accessories for cyclists and motorcyclists, including locks, luggage, electronics, clothing, safety and styling products. Current Oxford Products Ltd President Andrew Hammond grew up in the business his father started in 1973 and for the last 15 years under his direction has seen the business double in size every five years. OPUSA President Eric McFarlane, a former factory Yamaha rider who raced for many years in Europe, including the famed Isle of Man, has been active in the industry for over 30 years with aftermarket and O.E. brands. Oxford currently sponsors Moto GP rider Bradley Smith and many other riders in Europe and look forward to providing support to dealers and riders in the US market.

22 07 2014

Top East Coast riders and series champions to race EnduroCross

IRVINE, CA – July 22, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – KTM already has some heavy firepower in the GEICO AMA EnduroCross Championship with Taddy Blazusiak, (five-time GEICO EnduroCross champion) and Taylor Robert, (former Junior EnduroCross and WORCS champion) competing full-time for the 2014 championship. But for the upcoming Atlanta round, they will be joined by some of the biggest names from the East Coast off-road scene. KTM officials confirmed this week that Kailub Russell (2013 GNCC XC1 Champion), Steward Baylor (former GNCC XC2 and National Enduro Champion) and his younger brother, Grant Baylor (current GNCC XC2 Champion) have all committed to compete.

140722-FMF-KTM's-Kailub-Russell,-the-current-GNCC-XC1-Champion

FMF KTM’s Kailub Russell, the current GNCC XC1 Champion, will be competing at the Atlanta EnduroCross and will be joined by fellow GNCC regulars, Steward and Grant Baylor.

“We are thrilled about Kailub, Steward and Grant deciding to add the Atlanta EnduroCross to their racing schedule,” said Mike Karsting, VP of events for TEN, the producers of the EnduroCross Championship. “The EnduroCross regulars really have this type of racing dialed in so these riders should be applauded for taking on the challenge. They are all great riders and champions so we expect them to do well and it will be exciting to see where they fit in. The Atlanta fans are in for a champion-packed starting line, for sure!”

Steward Baylor competed in the Los Angeles X Games Enduro X in 2012 and showed impressive speed. For Grant Baylor and Russell, this will be their first times throwing their hat in the EnduroCross game and it couldn’t be at a more fitting venue for the East Coast riders and fans.

This is the first EnduroCross to visit to the East Coast of the U.S. since 2009 and with the event taking place during the summer break for the GNCC and National Enduro Championships, the Atlanta event will provide a welcome opportunity to race inside the air conditioned Gwinnett Center on Saturday, August 23rd.

EnduroCross’ high-paced action and wild obstacles expect to attract a large crowd and a host of new local riders as well as these champions.

Not a pro and think you can tame the EnduroCross obstacles? Then come on out and compete in the Open Amateur, Vet 35+ or TrialsCross classes. EnduroCross veteran Destry Abbott will host a “Rookies” training session on Friday night before the event to provide one hour of track time and tips for riders that have never raced an EnduroCross. Don’t miss it!

The Lucas Oil Productions team will again be producing one hour shows for the eight AMA EnduroCross events that will air on MAVtv. The Sacramento event will air on July 26th at 11:00 am EST and re-air at 2:00 PM EST. Check out http://www.MAVtv.com for more information.

July 22, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Our host, Brian Pierce, just got back from a weekend of Rally testing in the Nevada desert. He was out testing with racers Ian Blythe and Scott Bright and Rally Management Services owner Dave Peckham. It was a challenge and a completely new adventure.

Pierce excited to get another day of Rally training underway

Ian Blythe has had an interesting year. He was all set to contend the GNCC XC2 class and the National Enduro Series when he broke and displaced his scaphoid in February while testing. He’s healed up now and back on the bike, just not the bike we thought it would be. He’s learning how to navigate for Rally racing and has some big plans. He also plans to be back under the KR4 tent at a few GNCC’s before the end of the year.

Charles Marchant is an offroad mechanic to the stars, specifically KTM’s star Charlie Mullins. He’s an MMI graduate, past Texas resident and wrenched for Wil Hahn at Star Yamaha. He has a wealth of knowledge that we hope to share with our viewers. Make sure you join us in the chat room if you have any specific questions for Charles.

Viewers can easily watch the show live this evening at 8pm cst by tuning in to our website, http://seattime.co/live. We hope to see you in the chat room as well, http://tlk.io/seattime, it’s a great way to help shape the conversation.
