Mission Cycle Support Riders



Ben Hodgson

Ben Hodgson races KTM ATVs for Team HB Cycle/KTM in the CMRC ATV Pro class as well as the MMRS ATV Pro/A and ATV GP AB classes. Ben switched to Race Tech Suspension components in 2010 when he partnered with Mission Cycle and immediately noticed a difference in performance as well as race results. Ben has been racing ATVs since 2007 and loves racing. In Ben's first event he took 2nd place and then went on to win the next 2 events he raced. Ben moved to a KTM 450 in 2008 and took 1st at the CMRC ATV Amateur Nationals in the Junior class and then moved in 2009 to the Intermediate and Pro-AM classes and took 3rd in both classes. 2010 was a career year for him, after dropping out of contention for the Intermediate class due to injury, he focused his efforts on winning the Pro-AM title and made the switch to Race Tech Suspension. By the end of the season he’d pushed himself back into 3rd in the Intermediate class and taken the Pro-AM championship. Ben also entered the Pro class for the final race of 2010 in Grand Bend, ON and took 3rd overall. Ben would like to continue moving forward and pursue living out his dream of becoming a Provincial and National level Pro rider. With his Race Tech prepped KTM he is very optimistic about his future.

Testimonial: I first used Race Tech as a stock suspension upgrade on my practice quad. I ended up liking my Race Tech components better than the aftermarket setup on my race quad. I switched the suspension onto my race quad and immediately began seeing an improvement in handling as well as my race results.

Jason Thorne

Jason Thorne: Jason has been with Mission Cycle since 2009. Being one of the more mature riders in the Canadian FMX scene, Jason wants to make sure he leaves a positive influence for the youth FMX riders. Jason not only continues to travel the world to participate in events and demos, he also has begun mentoring and teaching the younger crowd what it takes to be a successful FMX rider. Speaking from experience, Jason turned pro at 16yrs old and had to manage the gauntlet of competitions, partying, and being business savy all on his own. He finds it important to teach these kids some of the basics and the complexities of the business so they can progress in the FMX movement through the future. We wish Jason the best in his future endeavours.

Testimonial: My Race Tech set up is..... bang on !!! Harsh landings are thing of the past !!!! Thanks Race Tech you guys rule !!!

 

Ray Post

Ray Post: Ray "The Post Man" Post has been with Mission Cycle since 2010 and has never been happier. Ray had an incredible year in 2010 setting the standard in all of FMX competitions and demos he entered. Ray won most of the events he entered and was able to incorporate a new rythum and flow to with his new found confidence in his suspension. Ray's focus and drive to take it to the next level has kept him busy competing in demos and competitions throughout the world. We wish Ray the best in the future and hope to see him on the podium at X-games soon.

Testimonial: I had no idea what I had been missing!

 

Adam Miller

Adam Miller: Growing up Adam had a couple mini bikes but at 13 he got his first “real” dirt bike, shortly after that he discovered his calling in freestyle motocross. He didn’t know any one who did fmx or where to go to ride ramps, so he practiced his tricks on natural hits found in local riding spots and gravel pits before building himself a ramp. FMX remained a hobby more or less until Todd from Mission Cycle gave him an opportunity to do a show with Mulisha rider Jason Thorne in 2008. That show was a turning point for Adam. Meeting the vetran Jason Thorne led to many open doors and now a successful career path. Adam continues to step his game up and push the limits. He is a determined and focused individual that wishes one day to lay claim to a legacy in FMX. We wish Adam the best in his furure endeavours.

Testimonial: I love having suspension I can count on to keep the bike flying level or to save my wrists and ankles if I twist too hard of the ramp. My Race Tech suspension has never let me down.
