Want an insight into the racing ideals of World Superbike Champion and current Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider Ben Spies and four-time World Champion Eddie Lawson? Yamaha Motor Corporation U.S.A. recently united the two iconic racers, filming the MotoGP racers as they discuss racing to training to bike set up to support programs and what it takes to be a world champion.
Yamaha says “This insightful video series provides a rarely seen glimpse into the psyche of a legend and a legend to be. What becomes readily apparent as the interview progresses is that Ben and Eddie are very much alike in their approach to racing and what it takes to be a winner on the world stage.”
A 30-second spot debuted during the airing of the 69th Daytona 200, which saw the Graves Motorsports Yamaha R6 of Josh Herrin and the Project 1 Atlanta Yamaha R6 of Dane Westby finish on the top 2 steps of the podium.
Using a modified Harley-Davidson XR1200, freestyle motorcross rider Seth Enslow will attempt to break the 157-foot long distance jump record currently held by Evel Knievel (1975) and Bubba Blackwell (1999).
The jump, which will occur in Sydney, Australia, will be broadcast live at 4:30 p.m. (CST) Monday at www.harleyworldrecordjump.com, and a post-event video will be broadcast on H-D’s YouTube channel and to Harley’s half-million Facebook fans.
