Beaverton, OR (February 16, 2021) – Beaverton Motor Cycle Racing will be the title sponsor for number-67 Davis Fisher in the 2021 Progressive American Flat Track Mission SuperTwins class.
Bob Lanphere Jr., president of the Lanphere Auto Group, made the announcement: “This decision shows the commitment BMC Racing continues to have in many areas of motorcycle racing,” said Lanphere Jr. “We are proud to be associated with Davis and to provide title sponsorship as he competes in AFT’s premier class.”
Bob Lanphere’s Beaverton Motorcycles opened in 1964, and BMC Racing has supported Fisher’s racing for 14 years. The Lanphere Auto Group owns a number of car and motorcycle dealerships throughout the Pacific Northwest.
BriggsAuto.com backed Fisher’s AFT SuperTwins program in 2020.
The Bike Campaign just opened a Bike Garage in Davis, at 1550 Cannery Ave., east of The Barn.
The 10-year-old nonprofit has been running the Bike Garage from Douglass Middle School, 525 Granada Drive in Woodland. Bike Campaign director Maria Contreras Tebbutt said she and other volunteers didn’t want to work out of a closed school during the pandemic, so they started helping people out of the garage of her East Davis home.
“There were so many inquiries,” she said, “from people needing to repair bikes or get bikes (during COVID).”
She said that when the spot opened up at The Cannery, it was perfect. It’s sheltered but open-air, protecting volunteers and patrons from the elements. The Bike Garage provides free bike repair and advice, and quality used bikes that are tested by mechanics. These used bikes last much longer than ones you’d buy at Target, she said.
