Zottman, the current Edmonton Motorcycle Roadracing Association (EMRA) Pro Superbike champion, will be competing in 2016 at EMRA and Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship events, as well as some selected one-off races aboard the brand new Ninja ZX-10R.
“The new Ninja is an amazing bike,” says Zottman. “The changes that were made will make the Ninja the bike to have in 2016. We are looking forward to putting the number 1 on the bike for the Canadian western Superbike races for sure, and with the upgraded electronics, suspension and motor, we are really excited about the potential of the bike.
“I couldn’t be happier, and really want to say a huge thanks to Todd and Reegan (Bow Cycle) and Nicolas (Kawasaki Canada) for making this happen.”
After taking five years off from road racing, Mike came back last year aboard a 2011 ZX-10R. Learning a new bike and new track, he found his footing again by mid-season and went on a winning spree, netting the EMRA No. 1 plate for 2015 and wrapping up the Pro Superbike and Open Sportbike championships, as well as setting the new regional lap record.
Sponsors for 2016 already include Kawasaki, Bow Cycle, Vortex, K-Tech Suspension, Hotbodies Racing, ZBM Racing, Redline Motorsports and Lone Wolf Solutions Ltd.
Mike rides with ZBM Racing out of Calgary, Alberta with teammates Trevor Bernhardt and Peter Meier. Bow Cycle has been a long-time supporter of local and national racing, with riders ranging from Pro Superbike to mini motocross.
