December 5, 2019

Vance and Hines chose and otherwise quiet Thursday in December to announce some huge news, the line-up of their 2020 team. And it's exciting. 

Jarod Vanderkooi is retained and joined by 2019 AFT Singles champ Dalton Gauthi...

I was only just saying how much I was looking forward to seeing AFT Singles points leader Dalton Gauthier on a twin (again) in the most recent race report thoughts and Black Hills Harley Davidson has made it so. Gauthier will race...
