“I’m grateful to have had such amazing support from Bridgestone this season in the BRL Championships,” said West. “The Battlax V02 racing slicks performed well at every track we went to, and the lap times were often some of the fastest all weekend. I’m so happy to bring home a number 1 plate for Bridgestone and my Saddlemen team!”

Battling it Out

“The Bridgestone Battlax V02 slick is nothing but confidence and grip. I felt confident I could push the front and rear tires to the limit and never lose grip. I ran my fastest times, won races and now a championship on them,” said Fernandez. “Thanks to the support from Bridgestone and their engineers for giving me the opportunity to ride such an amazing tire. I know we will go even faster in 2023!”

On top of winning the BRL titles, Bridgestone Motorcycle dominated the F/S cup races. Cory placed first in three of the four rounds and Benny Carlson won the other race. That made the company the sole tire in all four wins. In the NAMZ Big Twins races, Patricia drove her Indian Big Chief on Bridgestone Battlax V02 to victory in three of the four rounds.

“Bridgestone is extremely proud to be leaving the 2022 Bagger Racing League championship with two titles, thanks to the incredible performances from Cory and Patricia,” said Jared Williams, general manager, Bridgestone Motorcycle Tire Business in the United States and Canada. “After dominating the F/S Cup podium with four victories between Cory and Benny Carlson, and Patricia’s three wins, it’s easy to see why riders choose Bridgestone tires on their ride to victory.”

The company first launched the Battlax family of tires in 1983. Continual development has led to a long history of winning at the highest racing levels. Among them, MotoGP, FIM EWC and BRL championships.
