ESQUIRE NETWORK GETS READY TO RIDE WITH NEW COMPETITION SERIES "WRENCH AGAINST THE MACHINE" PREMIERING TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15 AT 9 PM ET/PT

The Six Episode Series Showcases the Toughest Motorcycle Build Competition in the Country with Expert Teams and New Build Challenges Each Week

LOS ANGELES -September 7, 2016- Ready, set, wrench! Esquire Network kicks off new competition series, "Wrench Against the Machine," with the series premiere on Tuesday, November 15 at 9 PM ET/PT. In the most grueling, seemingly impossible build challenge in the motorcycle world, each hour-long episode will have two teams of three expert builders battling head-to-head with only three days and $3,000 to transform basic stock motorcycles into rowdy, riding, works of art.

Some of the most prestigious bike builders in the country will be putting their reputations on the line in the ultimate test of creativity and craftsmanship to impress head judge, Roland Sands, founder of the highly esteemed motorcycle and apparel company Roland Sands Design, and two of the most revered names in motorcycle design, Michael Woolaway, U.S. Director of Motorcycle Design for Deus Ex Machina and Alan Stulberg, Co-Founder and Chief Designer of Revival Cycles and the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show.

The 72 hours of round-the-clock wrenching will take viewers deeper into the teamwork, the problem solving, and the creativity of the process that brings these bikes to life. New teams and new build challenges will be featured in each episode, as fabricators will be tasked with building café racers, choppers, bobbers, and beyond. At the end of the 3 days, the expert judges will test and evaluate the custom rides, crowning the winning team with the coveted "wrench" and the losing team's bike.

"Wrench Against the Machine" is produced by Coolfire Studios with Jeff Keane, David Johnson, Steve Luebbert, Adam Vetri, Tim Breitbach and Aaron Bowden serving as executive producers.
