Ty Tessmann to leave HB Racing?


2014 IFMAR World Champion Ty Tessmann looks increasingly likely to  be heading towards a long-rumoured exit from HB Racing.

Tessmann has spent his entire career with HB, a decade-long career which has been punctuated by numerous ROAR National titles, multiple Worlds podium finishes and countless race victories.
