Harley-Davidson SuperTwins Roster
Harley-Davidson has announced its rider roster for the 2020 AFT Super Twins series with reigning AFT Singles champion Dalton Gauthier joining veteran Jarod Vanderkooi as the newly-strengthened factory effort.
Additionally, Ricky Howerton and former AFT Twins champion Bryan Smith will also be backed by Harley-Davidson and Vance & Hines in 2020.
"The championship-winning duo of Howerton/Smith aim to use their developmental prowess to bring the orange and black to the front in 2020. Howerton - backed by the unparalleled expertise of Vance & Hines Motorsports - will be charged with the tuning, set-up and technical refinement of the XG750R.
"Despite his hiatus from the sport in 2018, Gauthier quickly became the man to beat in the 2019 AFT Singles championship hunt. The diversely talented athlete further displayed his versatility (and a natural finesse on a Harley-Davidson) as he joined the Black Hills Harley-Davidson AFT Production Twins effort and later led it to victory at the legendary Springfield Mile in August."
Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track, commented that "2020 is shaping up to be a banner year for our sport. Harley-Davidson's and Vance & Hines' boosted commitment to the series and their support for both the inaugural AFT SuperTwins season promises to ratchet up excitement over the coming months."
American Flat Track will kick off its highly-anticipated 2020 season with the first-ever DAYTONA 200 and DAYTONA TT Doubleheader at Daytona International Speedway at the peak of Daytona Bike Week on Saturday, March 14, 2020.
