The following is from Ohvale/Rise Moto…

Ohvale has made quite the splash in the American motorcycle market since arriving through Rise Moto in late 2018.  Since then, motorcycle continue to arrive in for excited new customers and new spec classes are arising around the country in the various mini racing organizations operating nationwide. Rise Moto proud to announce the entry list for the first official Ohvale Talent Cup alongside MotoAmerica on August 24 at PittRace.

26 aspiring young racers from around the country will travel to PittRace to compete in the Forza GP Premier Class and Sport Class at the Ohvale Talent Cup.  The ForzaGP Premier Class will see all riders using 16 spec GP-0 160 motorcycles supplied by Rise Moto with ForzaGP, the official Ohvale dealer for the Pacific Northwest, stepping up as the title sponsor!  The Sport Class will see all 10 riders using the GP-0 110 Automatic motorcycles supplied by Eleven Motorsports, the official Ohvale dealer for TX and OK.

The winner of each class will go home with their race winning motorcycles!  On top of that, the top two riders in the ForzaGP Premier Class will get the opportunity to travel to Italy to compete in the Ohvale National Championship finale in October at Adria International Circuit in Italy!

Brandon Cretu, Rise Moto Co-founder, commented:

“We are really excited to be working with Ohvale and MotoAmerica to spark something new for roadracing in the USA and give a structured way for youth to go roadracing and be recognized early for their talent.  In the end, I hope this helps all of roadracing and the people involved by attracting more youth and growing the base of our sport which we need more than anything!”

Rise Moto would like to thank all of the sponsors, partners, and supporters who have helped make this all come to fruition: Ohvale, ForzaGP, Eleven Motorsports, Fresh N Lean, Motion Pro, Beta Tools, Motul, PMT Tyres, Alpinestars, MotoAmerica,
