Chris Broome

Chris Broome

Chris is currently riding several different motorcycles and completes in multiple classes with WERA. He started riding later in life, as he had never sat on a motorcycle of any kind (dirt nor street) until 2007. After a few months of street riding, he started riding on the track and immediately displayed a natural talent for riding a motorcycle fast.

Since then, he progressed quickly and landed on several Podiums as a Novice racer. After only 5 full race weekends as a Novice he stepped up to the Expert ranks and has landed on several Expert Podiums as well. Chris's goal is to race in the AMA and we feel he has the ability to get there. Chris has a strong passion for motorcycles, a good work ethic and loads of potential that will help him succeed at his goals. In addition to racing, you will also see Chris instructing with Sportbike Track Time and Jason DiSalvo Speed Academy track days.

Michael Weyant

Michael Weyant

Michael has been riding on two wheels for nearly as long as he can walk. In 2009, his passion for all things on two wheels led him to the track for his first track day and less than one year later he began racing as a CCS Novice #434.

Since that time, he has progressed through the Amateur and Expert ranks under the racing numbers of 434, 43, and now 29 and taking home numerous podiums, an ASRA AM Thunderbike victory, and podiums in class championships. The 2014 season has been exceptional as Michael continues to improve his skills on his RSP Racing Kawasaki ZX6R platform, netting his first expert win and multiple podiums throughout the year.

Nicholas Hande

Nicholas Hande

In 2007 Nick started riding the occasional track days a try but was only able to ride for a short period of time before I had to take a break from motorcycles for a couple years. When he started working at STG he wanted to start riding again so he picked up a 2009 Yamaha R6 and went straight back to the track. Without even a track day to get back in the swing of things, he decided to do my first race. He has now been racing for 3 seasons with WERA and won a bunch of top 5 finishes and a handful of podium finishes.

Nick was able to win the WERA A Superstock Championship in 2013 in addition to drastically improving his body position and lap times. He has set his goals to win another championship this year and compete in the WERA Pro Series in 2015.

Bruce Miller

Bruce Miller

. In his own words Bruce is an old guy that has discovered that he loves a young guys sport. He has been riding since he was five years old, started riding the street when he was 27. Bruce started riding sport bikes a few years later when he was 32 and at the time he was also racing road bicycles and mountain bikes which resulted in four knee surgeries. The surgeries ended his bicycle racing "career" as well as him riding sport bikes for the most part as his knees just couldn't take it.

A few years later, when Bruce was 37 he purchased another street bike to see if he could handle riding. To his own surprise he was actually able to. A year later Bruce started riding the track and found himself hooked. In his first year alone he did around 15 track days and two races. The only goals he held for the races were to not come in last and to not crash, both of which he completed successfully. Bruce is now in his second year of track riding and he continues to learn more every time he goes out there there. Bruce has made many friends and now he cannot imagine life without the track.

Bruce has recently started putting on some local group street rides which seem to be a success and he feels it's great to get out and have fun and try to be responsible and help out others when they ask.

David Bumpus

David Bumpus

David started riding on the street in 2010 when he purchased a 1981 CB750K while he was living on his own during college and needed cheap transportation. Little did he know that within months he would have entirely rebuilt it and converted it into a café racer—beginning what would soon become a deep passion for riding and racing. Currently, he rides a 2014 R6, and you can find him canyon carving either on his own or with his racing crew as often as his schedule allows in Southern California. Now that grad school is behind him, he hopes to start competing on the track and writing professionally for the motorcycle industry.

Thai Long

Thai Long

Thai Long Ly is a Music Producer, Audio Engineer and Bassist living in Los Angeles, CA. His chosen profession has taken him around the world and his work can be heard on televisions and radios across the globe. In addition, having been on two wheels his entire life, coupled with his love of all things “fast and twisty”, has landed him a side gig as a Motojournalist with Motorcycle.com where he is forced at gunpoint to ride and review new bikes and gear via video and the written word. If you can’t find him in the A Room at the legendary recording studio, Bell Sound in Hollywood, he’s likely railing through the SoCal canyons on his ’14 Street Triple R on his way to Newcomb’s Ranch along the Angeles Crest Highway. There you can join him for a bad joke, decent coffee and a breakfast burrito!

Tom Lin

Tom-Lin

Tom is a sport rider working in NY's garment district as a textile artist who just started getting into track last year. Tom is primarily a commuter as he lives a good hour away from work and dislikes public transportation so it gives him the perfect opportunity to ride his motorcycle daily. Rain or shine, hot or cold, Tom is riding. There is no off season for Tom, the only limit is what the tires can handle.

Riding in this cramped aggressive city has taught Tom two things: 1.Safety and responsibility. That means I'm very much an advocate of ATGATT and hi viz safety gear 2. More importantly, Tom feels that those that ride street should understand that we are representatives for the motorcycling community and need to act accordingly. Being on the street means you are highly visible to the public and what you do sets an image for all of us. Good public perception puts motorcyclists in a positive light, and that eventually means more freedom for all of us.

Chad McGuigan

Chad-McGuigan

My name is Chad McGuigan, and I ride a 2005 CBR600RR around the south shore of Massachusetts. I started riding just about two years ago at age eighteen on a Ninja 500R, and motorcycles have since consumed my life in a wondrous way. Now at twenty, and on my first supersport, I can’t get enough of the twisties, canyons, mountains, or any curvaceous stretch of pavement I can find that isn’t too blind. Naturally, I’ve developed dreams of racing professionally; but I am in school right now at UMass Dartmouth majoring in English Comms with plans of maybe becoming a motorcycle journalist. I’m proud to have been chosen for this sponsorship, and believe in the STG family; they’re good people here.

John-Hvizdak

John-Hvizdak

Like many, Johns Dad got him hooked on riding bikes at a very young age. John had a host of dirt bikes growing up, and started riding on the street the day he turned 16, getting my "M" endorsement the same day he got his regular license. Several years went by, and a few close calls (and expensive speeding tickets) later John decided to try out the track in 2012. He immediately got hooked. Beginning in 2013, John started racing with WERA. He loved the racing even more, and earned enough points to get bumped to Expert for 2014. Near the end of 2014, John received the honor to join the 'Control Rider' ranks of N2 Track Days. For 2015, John is in his second year as a WERA expert and has really begun to enjoy the experience of working with fellow riders at the N2 Track Days.

Dan Dickerman

Dan Dickerman

Raised in New Hampshire Dan got his first motorized two wheeler at the age of 16 in the form of a Kawasaki KDX200. Naturally at the age of 18 he got his motorcycle license, and after joining the Air Force, bought himself a Honda CBR600RR. Not long after he went to the race track and so it began; the addiction. Sadly Dan's next duty assignment took him to the (mostly) frozen North Dakota, completely devoid of race tracks, and so he went without a track bike for those couple years. Currently Dan is stationed at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, AZ where he is close enough to four racetracks to satisfy the need. As a post-deployment welcome home present to himself Dan picked up a 2009 Yamaha R6 which he converted into a full-time track duty. He has been racing since April 2014 and doing quite well if we do say. Dan is looking forward to getting his expert license next year and dicing it up some more!

Stephen Jersey

Stephen Jersey

My name is Stephen and I am 28 years old living in Mason MI. I work as computer analyst for Sparrow Health System in Lansing MI. I have a 6 year old daughter who hopefully will be riding her own mini bike soon. I am currently riding a 2009 CBR600RR and only doing street riding but hoping to make some changes soon and get out on a track. This is my 3rd bike (1 crash, 1 sold) now and I am always looking for a new toy to play with. The Triumph Daytona 675R has my eye as my next bike right now. I made it through a pretty bad crash in 2008 where I wasn’t wearing the proper gear so I hound people a little bit now to cover up and ride safe. I love the adrenaline and freedom of being on a bike and plan to ride as long as my body lets me. Hope to see you guys out there riding!

Chris Evans

Chris Evans

Chris started riding motorcycles a bit later in life in 2010, but quickly fell in love with the sport and developed somewhat of an addiction to owning many different motorcycles. He is riding somewhere almost every weekend be it racing, track days, bike nights, trips to the mountains, or racing minis at the Herrin compound. After a few years of track and street riding he started his first season with WERA in 2015 racing a 2013 CBR500 and a Honda grom in the grom cup. With a very successful season so far he plans to continue racing next year with the goal of moving up to expert.

Tony Albaceli

Tony Albaceli

Tony is a former Firefighter currently employed in the auto-industry, also serving as a Michigan National Guardsman and oh, yeah - he is a major motorcycle nut. You might have read some of Tony's stuff if you subscribe to any gun rags as he likes his shooters, too. Tony is A bit of a do-it-yourselfer, he likes to work on his Triumph Speed Triple, and absolutely loves the resurgence of the Café Racer - he has a Triumph Thruxton in the stable as proof. Tony lives in the flattest part of Michigan, and a lot of his time is spent searching for those special far-away places with roads that actually twist and turn, and he is not afraid to road trip to new destinations. Tony likes to share his experiences with like-minds, and I he is relatively new to bikes, so make sure you follow him if you're new, too. Tony hopes to do his first track day soon, and is going to be sure to share the experience with all who have never done one before.

Thomas Garcia

Thomas Garcia

Thomas first started riding while stationed at Mountain Home, Idaho in 2006 on a Yamaha YZF-1000R Thunderace. Originally he started riding because it was a cheaper alternative to fillling the fuel tank on his SUV. Unfortunately Thomas crashed on his ‘Ace in 2008 and after doing a tour in Korea from ’08-’09, he jumped on a 2008 Triumph Daytona 675 and has since fallen in love with the Triumph brand. "I do everything on my Daytona since it’s my only mode of transportation. I commute everyday, take “spirited” rides in the mountains and take it to the track. I wish I could do the latter more often." In January 2013 Thomas was involved in another accident this time with an inattentive driver, which caused his ’08 Daytona to be totaled! It shook him up but by March Thomas was back in the saddle on his current ride, a 2013 Daytona 675R.

Thomas is the Motorcycle Safety Representative (MSR) and has always used his experiences to educate other riders. Thomas preaches ATGATT(All The Gear All The Time) and always suggest sport bike riders do a track day to get their speed fix, hone their skills and to push to know their true riding capabilities so they can learn from their mistakes.

Matt Zanni

Matt Zanni

Matt is a design engineer by trade, but is the first to admit he would much rather be on the bike than in the office any day. He has been riding for the last 5 years or so and have amassed thousands of miles from leisurely cruising the boardwalk to aggressive rides in the mountains, and of course, a few trackdays thrown in when he can. Matt is currently riding a 2009 Triumph Daytona 675 with the occasional joyride on his girlfriend's 2009 Kawasaki 250R, both of which are tremendous amounts of fun.

Donald Deckling

Donald Deckling

Donald has been on bikes all of his life. When he was young he dreamed of riding a Ducati on some famous track and about 5 years ago, he finally did it at Mid-Ohio on his 2001 996. Donald fell in love with track riding and jumped in head first by purchasing a track dedicated 848 and has never once looked back. Donald takes any chance he can get off police duty so that he can head to the track. Recently Don rode at VIR and managed to take his first tumble in turn 1 and in his opinion the stickers are true, crashing sucks. He has been dancing around the idea of starting real competition soon and maybe we will soon see him chasing the checkered flag, but until then Donnie can usually be found in the lower paddock at Mid-Ohio enjoying the track with his friends.

TEAM SLO (Jay Powell)

Alex Biedenharn

From the track, to the canyons, the local Starbucks and meetup spots, SLO doesn't mind spending time meeting up with others, but he knows as well as any other rider there are times when you just need to ride. Slo has raced in the past, been featured on a full page ad in SportRider, and SSB (SuperStreetBike), gotten on the podium, but still considers himself just another street guy that wanted to see how his moto-skills stacked up against experienced and skilled track junkies. Slo spends a lot of time coaching new track addicts at a smaller local track, and enjoys watching them change into not only better equipped riders, but also watching their opinions change, and knowledge grow. Slo feels privileged when he is able to help locals who request help not only for themselves, but also for their children that are new to motorcycling as well.
