Eighteen years ago, JD Beach and Cameron Beaubier were Red Bull Rookies Cup teammates traveling around Europe with former sports agent Norm Viano. Who could have predicted that 18 years later the two would be teammates again, contesting the 2024 MotoAmerica Steel Commander Superbike Championship on the Tytlers Cycle Racing team?
Since winning the Red Bull Rookies Cup title in 2008, Beach has won two MotoAmerica Supersport Championships and two MotoAmerica Superbike races.
Beaubier, meanwhile, has earned five MotoAmerica Superbike Championships and 59 AMA Superbike victories.
Since photos apparently are worth a 1000 words, we’ll let the photos and captions tell the story. Big thanks to Viano for dipping into his photo collection for us.
