Anthony Radetic Rip It Energy backed for 2020
After being supported by Rip It Energy for the past two years, P1 AquaX Pro Enduro rider Anthony Radetic has renewed his partnership with the world renowned energy drink this season. Produced and distributed by National Beverage Corp., a highly innovative pacesetter in the fast-changing soft drink industry, Rip It is well known for its support of the US military and re-signing with Anthony at this challenging time for everyone reflects their principles and values.
Based in Alabama though originally from Florida, Anthony experienced a life-changing injury in 2004 whilst stationed in Fort Rucker, the home of US Army Aviation, and was left paralysed. Describing himself as an adrenaline seeker, Anthony was determined to find a sport that would feed his need for speed and he competed in a number of different adaptive sports at a professional level until he found the perfect fit and his watercraft racing career began.
“I feel people think too hard and get afraid of certain challenges, and this holds them back from things that might truly empower them or make them happy,” says Anthony. “I’m a believer in going out there and just trying different things regardless of all the hurdles that may be in your path. Being on the water is a great equalizer and when you add a muscle craft to the mix it’s like a dream come true for me. The personal watercraft racing community is amazing; everyone is so willing to help, with a truly down to earth mentality. I’m stoked to have Rip It Energy in my corner and can’t wait for P1 AquaX racing to return.”
P1 Championship Manager, Michelle Petro commented: “With his million dollar smile, Anthony is a fan favourite and well respected by his fellow competitors in the P1 AquaX USA series. He is known for being a natural talent and tremendously determined, which makes him an excellent choice to represent Rip It Energy. The brand is perfectly aligned with AquaX racing and we can’t wait to see Anthony back in action on his Sea-Doo in the Enduro class.”
