Choice Motorsports Step  Away From National Racing to Focus on Core Business
Choice Motorsports team manager Anthony Giles has confirmed that his will not return to racing in 2014 and choosing to focus on his family along with his business, Choice Suspension.

After entering the national race scene tentatively back in 2011, choice motorsports was one of the premier teams in the pits throughout the 2012 and 2013 seasons supporting riders in under 19s, Pro Lites and the Pro Open classes.

However with a growing business and a growing family, Giles had to make a decision at the conclusion of the 2013 season, deciding to step away from running a team at a national level for the foreseeable future.

"In the end i came down to just not having enough time any more to run the team in the manner it needs," Giles admitted. "It's a big job and it was keeping me away from my business (Choice Suspension), my wife and five growing kids.

"At the moment these priorities take precedence over running a national team. It doesn't mean however that I won't do it again in the future - it is really exciting and rewarding!

"I had a great time, going to new towns and meeting new people. It's like an adventure every weekend and the racing side of things keeps you always feeling a little nervous. The reason you get nervous is because you don't know what the end result is going to be and that keeps you going back time after time - I really like that feeling," he added.

"The whole experience has been a highlight and what we have been able to do as a team has been amazing. Being a new team 'on the block' and being able to finish on the podium each year in the MX Nationals, has been very rewarding."

While Choice will be stepping away from running a national level team, the priority for Choice Suspension will not change, with Giles continuing to focus not only on helping Australia's top riders find a set up that is right for them, but anyone looking to dial their suspension in be it off road or on.

"Choice Suspension is my number one priority. We are always expanding and now have 2 extra workshops and a huge range of suspension components. Giles continued. "We continue to have a real push here in Australia to show all the motorcycling enthusiasts why we are the best at tuning your suspension for your own individual needs.

"Over the last 15 years we have worked with the best riders in the country from Motocross to Enduro - the likes of Daniel Milner, Toby Price, Matt Phillips, Brock Winston, Brenden Harrison, Sam Martin, Dylan Long, Wade Carter - just to name a few! I know we can come up with the right suspension settings to get any rider, at any level, riding safely & therefore more confidently.

I think people forget that suspension is very important and at the end of the day it's about safety - if you don't feel safe you can't ride fast - period!

As for the race scene we will be supporting riders from all disciplines, from 50cc to 1000cc and can't wait to see kids and adults develop their riding skills and beating their own personal bests and, most importantly, having fun." Giles concluded.

With the Choice Motorsports race team no longer in operation it also means that the team truck is for sale, for anyone interested in a race truck that is set up ready to go racing call Anthony on 0417552942 or 0354227483
