North Adams, MA – The band of Outlaws…. back for another season of ATV racing. Hot off of last years 3 championships on the NEATV Series, Team Southside is currently halfway through their 2010-2011 SnoCross schedule with the ISOC Eastern National coming up this weekend in Farmington, NY. However; with the last couple papers signed and sealed, it is time to take a break from all the snow and talk about dirt.

In the pro division we will have 3 riders set to compete in the full NEATV Schedule. Leading off is the #8 of Mike Pilotte from Fall River MA, who last season finished 3rd overall, even after riding 3 rounds with a broken wrist. He ended the season with 3 overall wins and 13 overall podiums.

Next up is NEATV Rookie Kody Evans.  Coming all the way from Safford Arizona, he clenched a 2nd place overall finish in the Pro Open class on the ITP Quadcross Series. At only 18 years old he has a lot of talent and potential; we see him having a strong year out here in the Northeast. Also on his plate, he will be running 6 of the 7 Yamaha X Series on the West Coast, missing only 1 round due to a schedule conflict with NEATV.

The final Pro entry that will be making the long trip from north of the border is the #91 of Jasmin Plante. Jasmin is one of the fastest Canadian riders and really made his presence felt last season at NEATV. With 9 overall wins and 16 overall 16 podiums, he finished 2nd overall for the season. In addition to running the full NEATV Series, Jasmin will also be running any CMRC & Courses VTT races that do not conflict.

In the “A” division we have two very talented riders. Venturing all the way from South Africa will be the #33 of Jurie Botter Meyer. Some people might remember him from last season when he did a couple NEATV rounds and an AMA National. Joining him on the track will be the #422 of Quinton Barto, from Hainesport, New Jersey. Quinton ran the whole AMA National series in 2010 and had a lot of success; he looks to continue building on that this season as he makes the switch to Polaris.

The “B” division will also hold two high competitive riders. First, appearing all the way from Bulgaria, is Nikolen Kushev. He has won multiple atv championships abroad and now looks to come to the USA to up his game. Running beside him will be Brett Butter from Vineland, New Jersey. He spent some of last year injured but looks to make a strong rebound this season.

Topping off the roster for team Southside in the NEATV series will be Bruce Gaspardi Jr. from Cheshire, MA. Toning it down from last season’s 4 classes, he will be competing in the collegeboy class only in order to better help the team off the track.  In addition, the team will travel to a couple of the AMA Nationals held in PA & NY, but their presence will still be seen full-time in AMA Nationals. Running the complete national schedule will be the #11 of Megan Manshack in the Pro Womens class.

We would like to welcome a few new sponsors on board for the 2011 season; those are: Rage Motors, Flexx Handlebars by Fasst Co., Stomp Design seat covers, Tiger Racing Products, Terry Design Concept Exhaust systems, and Emergen-C.
