Posted on: Thursday, Apr 05 2007

Bering, the premier brand in France, is becoming more established in the UK and is known for it's quality, style and affordable prices. This year it is pleased to announce that it will be supporting British Superbike Privateer Cup racer Malcolm Ashley with it's Iridium race suit and RX15 race gloves.

"As a brand it is important to be part of the competitive side of motorcycling. Bering UK is committed to supporting motorcycle racing from grass roots racing, through our ACU Racer Promotion offering leathers and gloves at a heavily discounted price, to sponsoring riders in the premier classes; Malcolm Ashley BSB Privateer Cup, Gary May British Supersport Championship, Maria Costello - International Road Races and Ady Smith - Supermoto British Championship and we wish all our riders every success this season," added UK Sales Manager Tim McDowell.

Malcolm Ashley the Leicestershire based racer will again be competing on Kawasaki ZX10's this year. Despite mixed fortunes during testing, a successful test in Spain was followed by frustrating times at Snetterton two weeks ago when mechanical problems hindered progress, the MAR team are happy that those problems have been resolved and are now looking forward to a great start to the season.

"I tested at Brands earlier in the year and my times have indicated that I should have a strong finish, I know the competition will be fierce but I'd like a podium in my class and that's what I'll be aiming for on the MAR Kawasaki, " added Ashley. "The suit is great as are the gloves and they look good too, having Bering on board is fantastic and we will be looking to get the Bering leathers on the podium as many times as possible this season."

The Bering race suit and gloves being worn by Malcolm Ashley is available to the public through our UK dealer network. For more details contact: UK office 01280 700 804 Email
