Never seen such a color of plastic for Husqvarna before. I assume it will be either black with decals on them or painted? Anyway, its pretty cool looking setup and very unique approach to go racing. Good luck!

It’s Acerbis plastic and will be available to buy soon. I think WPS knows about it.

Sick idea!!!

So when you donate over $200 does your company logo end up on his race jersey? Or do you just get a personal jersey with your name and number on it?

Same jersey that Michael is racing with Vital MX logo on chest and your name and number on the back. Or you could request an exact replica with Michaels name and number. When you go to the donation page it walks you through the options. Thanks

Sad to report Michael won’t be racing. He hurt his shoulder in Q2. Thank you for your support!

Aw man, what a bummer. I knew something was up, but didn’t see him exit, so I wasn’t sure what.

Get well soon.

I'll admit, it was really cool seeing Michael out there kitted up in his Vital MX setup. I was busy shooting the final practice, and realized partway through that he'd stopped circulating, but I was in a spot where I couldn't see where he'd gone. That was a bummer. Here's to quick healing and better days ahead!

Thanks, Michael. smile

Just curious how this approach fared for Michael and team? I hope they are printing off a bunch of Jerseys to send out!

Things went pretty well. We had more people donating money rather than buying Vital gear, but all and all we were happy with how the bike/gear came out. I think it was awesome for Vital to step and and do something with this package and get some more attention to it. At the end of the day, this is a project that has been pretty fun and something that I think will start to take some shape in the industry moving forward. I am trying to prove that we need to do something to attract more money into this sport to help it grow. With that, I think that the customer gear with Canvas MX that we can create along with Rival matching the graphics, we can mold packages around larger companies to come in and get them the visibility this sport has failed to offer. If a privateer such as myself can do it, I can only imagine what this could do for larger teams in this industry.

Again, big thank you to Vital for the opportunity and it was a fun project to do with them.
