Brenden's going to the RedBull Race
Iconic Motorbikes and Wonder 4 Dogs are joining forces to help the next GREAT in Motorbike Racing get his "Big
Break". Wonder 4 Dogs has already been an amazing sponsor from the start and with their support, this young man has made his friends, his family and his many supporters very proud! He started riding at 4 1/2 years old and started racing at when he was 5. Road racing was soon to follow at only 6 years old!!
We at Iconic Motorbikes met Brenden, his father and Tom from Wonder 4 Dogs at Laguna Seca where we unveiled our new Motorbike business that we've been working around the clock to build. The booth, the bikes and the work was
truly intended to get our new business underway but Brenden stole our hearts. His constant smiles, his loving
personality, and for us...his AMAZING PASSION towards bikes and riding just won us over. So much so that we
opted to sign up and help sponsor him with a couple sets of race tires (more to come as we grow this new entity).
Brenden in the meantime has been practicing, studying and following his motorbike dream of being a professional rider and just a couple weeks ago he locked down 2nd Place at Sonoma Raceway in the Expert Class which is no easy feat.
Shortly thereafter, RedBull contacted him and asked him to come try out in Spain for the RedBull Team. This is a HUGE DEAL as only 109 young men were invited last year, you have to have some serious talent he has to pull this off. What we picked up on during our first meeting, RedBull picked up on as well. This invite to a young rider / racer is essentially the Golden Ticket (for you Willy Wonka fans :)
Now for the fundraising part....Many if not most of the RACING GREATS come from working class families as that's where much of the "drive" originates. As such...the expense of going to Spain with flights, hotels, local travel, food, etc., really add up and we (Iconic Motorbikes) can only do so much as we're still rather new. That said, help us meet $5000 and we'll pitch in $500, help us get to $7250 and we'll pitch in the balance of 750 to get him to the $8000 the family needs. Supplemental to the above, we're putting a very high end 1098R Ducati (one of only 450 made) up for sale on Ebay today and we'll give a percentage of the sale to Brenden's other needs such as tires for practice before he heads to Spain!
Our sport needs more Motorbike Greats and this young man has the potential...Let's get behind him and take the $
pressure off the family so they can focus on keeping him smiling, keeping him healthy and getting him to the podium safe and sound! Thank you ALL so much for helping us help Brenden. Be a part of something and someone GREAT!
