Apex Assassins President
“After having an incredible end to the 2018 season, I couldn’t wait to be back on a bike! As the off season began to end I still found myself without much options to go racing this year. I was saddened, but didn’t quit. Both Mike Pond and myself worked very diligently to make this happen. We really put a lot into it and its going to be an awesome year. The last time I was with Tuned Racing we won the championship. I feel that I am at the peak of my performance and I only continue to grow. The 600 Supersport class is full of a lot of talented riders and I plan to be up there with them! I want to give special thanks to Champ School, Apex Assassins, and my dedicated crew Louis and Chris who will be returning with me again in 2019.” said Bryce Prince
“I am excited for the Team we have put together for this year and having Bryce home! The Partnerships we have built will be the extra push we need to put us on the top. Yamaha Champions Riding School has a reputation for producing the best riders out there and will help guide us with the habits on and off of the race track to take Bryce to another championship. Apex Assassins is a great track day company made up of racers with a real love of the sport. I look forward to growing our relationships with both of them. ” said Mike Pond, CEO at Tuned Racing.
