Both riders will compete on  SXV 450 Aprilias equipped with K&N Engineering products. Factory Aprilia spent the off season testing its bikes. “Our extensive research and development rendered a series of groundbreaking improvements on our Italian machines,” said team manager Darryl Atkins. “As our progression builds, it is beginning to set us apart from the competition. We use K&N air and oil filters because we can depend on K&N for additional performance and excellent filtration when we race.”

Team Aprilia will make its debut at the San Diego ESPN Moto X World Championship in April. “I have confidence that Benny will be very strong in the 450 class,” said Atkins. “As for me, I’ve experienced a remarkable recovery from my broken wrist in 2007. This season I will be working with former American Motocross and Supercross champion Mike Bell for training and on track support.”

Atkins and Carlson will also participate in X-Games 14 at Los Angeles, California on August 1 and 2.
