Six years ago Canadian Ty Tessmann and his whole family came down to America to compete at the 2003 Nitro Challenge. Ty qualified into the F main and missed the bump. As he returned home the locals were surprised at a not so stellar performance as he was competing with the best in Canada on a regular basis. “It’s totally different in the States. Everyone was fast. We have some work to do,” said Gord Tessmann, Ty’s dad.
Ty managed to beat half of the field and was only 10 years old at the time, pretty impressive. Fast forward to present time; Ty claimed the 7 position at the 2008 IFMAR 1:8 Off-Road World Championships, is hot off a 2nd place performance at the 2009 NitroCross World Championships and continues to be a threat in the A-main at the most prestigious races around the country. The dedication the whole Tessmann family has put into Ty’s racing career is staggering and speaks volumes for their dedication to the sport of RC.
Dedication to product performance and racer support is what Pro-Line is all about and we’re proud to announce Ty’s joining the Pro-Line team. Here’s to you Ty and all your hard work. The entire Pro-Line team looks forward to working with at races to come.
