Photographing Men of MotoAmerica 2015

Jake Fell, Pro Rider #112 of Fell Racing and KTM RC 390 Cup

 

To start rounding out the finale of this MotoAmerica series from Road America, I am excited to share images of young riders who were a part of a new program this season; specifically, the KTM RC 390 Cup. This series is a fast five rounds open to young riders ages 14 to 22, many of whom are new to road racing.

Case in point, Jake Fell of Fell Racing, who’s usual competition ground is the flat track, was contending on pavement for the first time in his life on this specific May weekend.  With the help of race bike technicians Jon Schiereck and Boyd Bruner (crew member of Danny Eslick’s win of Daytona 200 for Riders Discount Triumph), Jake went out and had a great weekend improving his times every round.

Jake is a great young man from an exceptionally wonderful Midwest family and it was fantastic to see him do well this weekend.
