Triumph to Sponsor Jason DiSalvo Speed Academy
Triumph Motorcycles has signed a sponsorship agreement with Jason DiSalvo‘s riding school.
The 2011 Daytona 200 winner rides a Triumph Daytona 675R for the Latus Motors AMA Daytona Sportbike team so it’s no surprise the British manufacturer is sponsoring the Jason DiSalvo Speed Academy. DiSalvo also raced for Triumph-backed BE1 World Supersport team, and though he left the team on rather murky terms, DiSalvo and Triumph enjoy a strong working relationship.
“As much as I enjoy racing, I love to help others improve their riding abilities,” says DiSalvo. “We created the Speed Academy to help riders raise their game at the track, and with Triumph’s re-emergence into racing this partnership was a natural fit for both of us.”
The Jason DiSalvo Speed Academy teaches racing technique through in-class activities and on-track sessions. Öhlins technicians are on hand to provide suspension tuning at select events, while instructors, including DiSalvo himself, film students with GoPro cameras to help them analyze their technique.
