Roberson Motorsports Signs Jake Holden to Contest the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike Championship for 2011
NEWS January 10, 2011
(January 10, 2011) - Roberson Motorsports, formally known as CnR Motorsports, is proud to announce the signing of AMA Pro rider Jake Holden.
“We wanted Jake to ride for us last season, but unfortunately things didn’t work out the way we had planned,” stated Team Manager Breeann Poland. “When we got word Holden didn’t have a deal for 2011, we made sure to act fast this time.”
“I'm really excited to join Robbie Roberson's team and work with my old Crew Chief James Compton as well as two of my past mechanics," said Holden. "I am more than ready to get up front on the Ducati 848. I've been training pretty hard over the winter. I want to be up front right from the start."
“After working with Holden on the Jordan Suzuki and Corona Honda teams from 2006 through 2008, I feel like he and I have some unfinished business,” said Technical Director James Compton. “We came very close to winning a championship in 2008 in the Super Stock class, but in the end it just wasn't meant to be. I'm very excited about the opportunity to work with Holden again and to have another shot at the title in the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike class. I feel as a team we have the rider, bike and infrastructure to support a championship level effort. I'm certain that if we can stay composed and concentrate on good consistent results, we will be in the hunt for the championship in 2011.”
