Scot Harden joins Dealernews advisory board
Scot Harden joins Dealernews advisory board Scot Harden SUNBURY, OH - Dealernews announces that Scot Harden has joined the Dealernews editorial advisory board. Harden, a member of the AMA Hall of Fame, is principal of Harden Off-Road, a business consultancy in operation since 1987. He has an extensive industry pedigree, including business development roles at KTM, Husqvarna, BMW and Zero Motorcycles. "Scot can deliver solid, rational advice to Dealers as they look to expand their markets and reach new audiences," said Mary Green, editor at Dealernews. "Our latest story on Dealernews.com, for example, is an interview with Scot on electrics. Is the timing right for Dealers to carry an e-bike line? Maybe, but maybe not yet. Scot provides critical details every Dealer must know." "Scot also has the highest regard for the Dealer network - at the recent AIMExpo, Scot hung around the Dealernews booth and helped greet many of the Dealers who stopped by to talk. I, along with the other Dealernews principals - Bob Althoff and Scott Johnson - welcome Scot Harden to the board." Harden joins an Advisory Board that includes Dealer principals and select industry consultants.

About

Scot Harden - 40 Years of Fast
Scot Harden has enjoyed a nearly 40-year career as one of the world's top off-road motorcycle racing competitors compiling a resume that few can match. From 1971 until his final professional race in 2007 at the age of 51 Harden's career is noted for the wide range of off road disciplines that he mastered. He is also noted for an impressive executive management career within the motorcycle industry and is well known as a brand builder, visionary, team manager, sales and product planner. From a racing perspective, the longer, the tougher, the more endurance and stamina required the more Harden excelled. In his quest to conquer the world's most extreme off road challenges he traveled throughout North and South America, Europe, and Africa, earning titles and building a reputation as one of the US's most versatile off road racers. A short list of his major titles includes: two-time SCORE Baja 1000 overall champion; three-time SCORE Baja 500 overall champion; four time Best in the Desert Las Vegas 400 overall champion; two time SCORE Parker 400 overall champion; one-time overall SCORE Motorcycle Series Champion; three time Best in the Desert Series Class Champion; three-time International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) medalist (Gold: Italy, 1981; Silver: France, 1980; Bronze: Czechoslovakia, 1982); winner of the 1987 Djerba 500 Rally in Tunisia(the first American in history to win a marathon raid rally in Africa); 1982 AMA National Reliability Series Open Champion and 1994 AMA National Enduro Vet Class Champion. 77 Baja 100 small 1977 Baja 1000- Scot's First Big Offroad Win Harden began his professional racing career in 1973 as a support rider for Husqvarna joining the factory Desert/Baja off road squad in 1977. That year saw him take his first major title winning the 1977 Baja 1000 overall. From 1977-78 he and his partner Brent Wallingsford set a record for consecutive SCORE overall event wins with 5 straight overall wins. He raced with Team Husqvarna until 1986 taking his final overall SCORE victory, the 1986 Baja 500 with partner Garth Sweetland. During his time with Team Husky he earned many of his Baja and international Off Road wins, Another highlight of this period was as a member of the 1982 U.S. ISDE Trophy Team which finished a US Trophy team best second overall at the ISDE held in Czechoslovakia that year. On the local and regional scene he won over 100 desert races overall. Harden left Cagiva at the end of '86. Between 1987 and 1988 Harden raced professionally in Europe, Africa and North America embarking on a Rallye racing career which saw him become the first American to win a Marathon Raid style Rallye in 1987. In 1988 his career entered an entirely new phase when he joined KTM as Western Region Sales/Desert Racing/Media Relations Manager for KTM America. Harden soon transitioned to VP of Marketing a nd Communications for KTM USA and was responsible for the brand's US market development through 2005 including development of the KTM Sportminicycle product line and the launch of the KTM Jr. Supercross Challenge. This period was marked by huge sales growth and market share by KTM. image017 Scot created the KTM Jr Supercross Challenge in 1998 In 1996 he entered the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, earning sixth-place overall and Rookie of the Year honors. From 1997 to 2000 he took overall wins in the Elsinore Grand Prix Legends class against some of the biggest names in the sport. As Harden approached his late 40's he turned his attention back to the one extreme event that had escaped his resume to date, the Dakar Rally. In 2003 Harden was handpicked by Red Bull/KTM to lead America's return to the Dakar Rally. Harden served as team manager and rider for the 2004 and 2005 U.S. Red Bull/KTM US Dakar Rally teams. In the 2004 event he ran as high as 7th overall before dropping out with a broken ankle at the mid-way point. In the 2005 Dakar Rally (at age 48) he achieved every adventure rider's dream of seeing the "Pink Lake"(Lac Rose) at the end of Dakar finishing 17th overall out of 250 motorcycle competitors. Harden has held numerous executive level management positions within the motorcycle industry with Husqvarna, KTM, BMW and most recently Zero Motorcycles. He has served as a board member for the Off Road Business Association (ORBA), which works to preserve access to public lands and serves on the Motorcycle Industry Council's (MIC) Electric Motorcycle Task Force. He is the 1998 recipient of the Hazel Kolb Brighter Image Award as well as the 2015 AMA Bessie Stringfield Award based on his continued promotion of the sport of motorcycling on a national level.
