New Look For Michael Jordan Team

Cycle News Staff | March 13, 2013

With the AMA Pro National Guard Superbike Championship kicking off the team’s 10th year in the sport, Michael Jordan Motorsports has unveiled a new look for the season-opener this weekend in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The Air Jordan XX8 shoe inspires this year’s team livery and both Danny Eslick and Roger Lee Hayden will run the new colors in the Superbike class.

 Michael Jordan Motorsports will also run James Rispoli’s National Guard Celtic Racing Suzuki GSX-R600 and National Guard Celtic Racing teammate Corey Alexander in the new colors. Rispoli makes the move to the Daytona SportBike class with Alexander returning from injury to the Supersport class.

“The whole MJM team is looking forward to Daytona,” said Kreig Robinson, MJM Vice President of Corporate Relations. “We expect solid results from Danny and Roger in AMA Pro National Guard Superbike, and we’re excited about James racing the Daytona 200 for the first time. Additionally, we look forward to supporting Corey in AMA SuperSport. Overall, 2013 is a landmark season for MJM as we reflect on the significance of a successful decade in road racing and the unlimited potential of the future.”

Eslick unveiled the team’s bike and gear on the Skydeck on the top of the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower), 103 flights above Chicago, where the team was founded in 2004.
