Two-time MotoAmerica Supersport Champion and Motul Superbike class rookie Garrett Gerloff has signed a deal that will see him in Cortech leathers and gloves again in the 2018 MotoAmerica Series on his Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Factory Racing YZF R1.
“I’m very excited to re-sign with Cortech for this next stage of my career,” said Gerloff in a Cortech press release. “Cortech’s custom race leathers and gloves have always provided me with the fit and safety I demand. Cortech’s attention to detail and on-track support have been a real factor in augmenting my consistent success on the racetrack.”
“Garrett has been a great pleasure to work with,” said Vice President Director of Products for Cortech parent Helmet House, Inc., Mark Gandy. “Cortech highly values our relationship with
world-class professional road racing athletes in terms of product design, feedback and the application of technologies to high performance road racing suits. These high-level insights often find their way in to Cortech’s apparel offered for sale to motorcycling enthusiasts around the world. With Cortech as our performance brand, our work with world-class athletes like Garrett has certainly been key to Cortech being the brand and product line it is today.”
Gerloff will compete in MotoAmerica’s Superbike class for the first time in 2018.
“I’m very pleased to move up to the Superbike class with the factory Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Factory Racing effort. I couldn’t ask for a better bike and team to compete for in 2018. With Cortech providing me leathers and gloves once again, I feel I have a real shot at a Superbike Championship in 2018,” Gerloff said.
