Press Release: Ottawa, ON July 5, 2018
Wheelsport / Nihilo Concepts Racing
Long-time friends Jim Kolman (Wheelsport, Orleans ON) and Reece Rendall (Nihilo Concepts Canada) have been active in the sport of motocross since the mid 80’s when they travelled the country as a rider and mechanic. Together in 2014 they decided to start a shop team with Taylor Arsenault and Reece’s son Thomas, where both riders have moved up the ranks to their classes today. Wheelsport has once again signed on to sponsor these two racers for the 2018 season and Nihilo Concepts has done the same.
These two team riders will be racing some key events in 2018 – Taylor racing the Eastern rounds of the Rockstar Triple Crown MX Nationals; and Thomas racing 2 classes at Loretta Lynn’s US Nationals and 4 at Canadian Amateur events.
Taylor and Thomas are loyal KTM riders and will be chasing podium spots on their 2018 KTM 250 SX and 125 SX 2-strokes respectively. The addition of Factory Team quality parts from Nihilo Concepts will separate these bikes from other team bikes, but with the same parts any rider can buy!
“All through my amateur years and now my 3rd year as a pro, Wheelsport has been at my side. They have great service, years of motocross knowledge and the latest products. They are always interested in my racing and eager to help. I have been using Nihilo parts even before Reece started distributing them in Canada. Nihilo Concepts makes parts with a purpose and not just bling, just look at the Factory KTM, Troy Lee Design KTM, Factory Husqvarna and Chad Reed’s bikes and you will find Nihilo on them. With continued support from Wheelsport, Nihilo Concepts Jim Kolman and Reece Rendall my racing program has never been stronger, and I have never been more confident than I am right now going into the start of my national season this weekend!”
”It all started on Jim Kolman’s back yard track on my little KTM 50 Jr, and I have been hooked on MX since. I was riding with Jim’s son Jacob almost 4 days a week back then. (Jacob rips around trees like a jackrabbit in the woods in FMSQ & Enduro’s these days) Jim, Mel, and Dave at Wheelsport are a great team and key part of our team. Nihilo Concepts started as a sponsor of mine, but quickly became more. The Brewster family that owns and runs Nihilo Concepts in Stuart FL have always been there for me, from the day Bob Brewster treated me like a Factory rider by spending hours out of his busy day to help my Dad and I jet my KTM 50SXS on the little test track out back of the old shop, to this day. My sponsorship evolved to us distributing Nihilo Concepts parts in Canada, and it is really nice to be a bigger part of their family now. They really like the Canadian MX scene and we support some great teams and riders”.
Drop by and meet the Wheelsport Nihilo Racing Team in their pit area at the Sand-Del-Lee Rockstar Triple Crown National this weekend, meet their sponsors and pick up a team poster too. (At all Rockstar Triple Crown MX tour events and select races)The team looks forward to meeting you!
