UFO Plast in 2008
Via Marco Polo 155
Bientina (Pisa) Italy
UFO Plast SRL is pleased to announce that Jamis Bicycles Factory rider Tommy Tokarczyk has chosen UFO to be his partner in racewear and body protection for Downhill and Mountain Cross in 2008.
“I’m super excited about UFO Plast’s mtb line.” Tommy said. “The gear looks cool and everything fits perfectly. The gloves are amazing and the Downhill Knee-Shin Guards combined with the “Prokop Bendage” sleeve are without a doubt the best system I’ve rode in. These are the only knee-shin guards I’ve found that don’t slide or fall down when you’re pedaling. I’m looking forward to a great season.”
‘We have been working with some of the best riders in Europe the last few years to develop a complete line of protective gear including youth and female specific articles.’ Stated UFO Plast’s Wesley Parker. ‘UFO is eager to find distribution and enter the US Market. What better way to get some attention and exposure than to work with a positive, hard charging guy like Tommy. It’s hard to find a top level rider that’s available, but when Craig Hoyt from Jamis contacted me about Tommy’s need for a gear sponsor we got going immediately.
Tokarczyk is currently preparing for the US National Series which opens in Fontana, California March 27-30. In addition to North American races, Tommy will be heading to Maribor, Slovenia for the World Cup in May. He hopes to be selected to compete in UFO Plast’s backyard at the June World Championship events taking place in Italy. Tommy’s complete 08 sponsor lineup includes Jamis Bikes, UFO Plast, Syncros, Kenda, Hayes, Manitou, e 13 components, Smith Optics, Nationwide Hospitality, and Rockstar.
