Leib Signs 2-Year Deal with CLS Kawasaki
Michael Leib, the American who spent a couple of years in Europe riding for Factory Husqvarna has inked a deal to go back over the pond for next year and then has an option for 2014 with the CLS Kawasaki team. Leib came back home this year and put in some good results on the west coast 250SX series before getting the call to go back over there and fill in for another American Zach Osborne on the Bike-It Yamaha team.
Leib surprised everyone with a podium his first ride out but then fell ill and has been on the sidelines ever since. Leib's now got himself a nice ride for the next couple of years on one of the best MX2 teams in the paddock. Nice to see a good guy get rewarded for his efforts and maybe, just maybe, Leib can be America's first World Champion since Bob Moore in 1994.
