(Petaluma, CA—February 3, 2011)—Vicci Fashion Group announced today that they are launching the sale of remaining official Ben Spies memorabilia from his previous AMA career, which will be available globally at the Official Store to Ben Spies: www.Vicci.com. The limited supply of Spies memorabilia will include pieces like his official AMA leather riding jackets from Spies’ former team Yoshimura Suzuki as well as various T-shirt designs and collectables, like his #11 replica novelty helmets. Beginning in early 2011, Vicci was named the Official Apparel Supplier to Ben Spies and Speez Racing with a multi-year agreement and license for Vicci to sell and produce Spies apparel and accessories worldwide.
Ben Spies, who is arguably one of the most exciting riders to emerge from the US in many years, started his professional AMA career in 2000, and quickly made a name for himself with consecutive Superbike titles in 2006, 2007 and 2008. The following year, 2009, marked Ben’s first year in World Superbike and it was that rookie year where he set numerous track records and won the championship. In 2010, he transitioned into MotoGP and made his presence known finishing 6th in the championship, walking away with multiple rookie of the year honors while simultaneously accumulating more points than any other non-factory first-year rider in series’ history. For Spies, or “Elbowz” as he’s known for his unique riding style, it is only a matter of time before he takes his place among the series’ elite.
