PBSS drag racer ready for season opener at Grand Bend
MILTON, ONTARIO (April 13, 2014) – When Ted Glinny returns to the track this season to compete in the Pro Bike & Sled Series, the Pro Bike rider said there will be a few changes with his Kawasaki, but mostly the bike will be the same.
“There will be a couple of small changes,” noted Glinny, who hails from Milton, Ontario and placed second in points in 2013 in the Series, which is presented by Wiseco Performance Products.
“There will a few tweaks here and there,” he continued. “I’ve put in a slider clutch and taken some weight out of the bike.”
Glinny is no stranger to drag racing motorcycles, a sport he has enjoyed for over three decades. He has been successful in the PBSS, co-winning the 2012 championship, and taking a close second spot last season. During the six PBSS events in 2013, he always qualified within the top half of the field, and although he had a couple of first-round eliminations, he won three events.
No major changes for Pro Bike rider and his Suzuki
THAMESVILLE, ONTARIO (April 10, 2014) – There will be no major changes on Dan Cryderman’s Pro Bike Suzuki this year when he takes to the track for the upcoming Pro Bike & Sled Series.
Cryderman, who qualified no lower than third in last year’s PBSS season, rode to a couple of event victories and took the 2013 Championship Point Award Series in this popular drag race series presented by Wiseco Performance Products.
“We haven’t done too much with the bike,” explained Cryderman. “We tore it down and went over things and it should run about the same. We were real happy with last year.”
The 2004 Raceworks prepared Suzuki is powered with a 1570-cc Vortex II engine fueled by FBG (Fast by Gast) 48-mm Lectron carburetors and couple to a five-speed transmission.
