Dunlop Riders Grab 83 Championships at
For years, amateur motocross families have competed at the Thor Winter Olympics—known
as the Mini O's event—at Florida’s Gatorback Cycle Park on Thanksgiving
weekend, and this year’s Mini O’s was another great traditional event.
Supercross and motocross competitions, the 2018 Mini O’s saw Dunlop riders snag
83 championships—41 in Supercross competition, and 42 in motocross.
Dunlop supported Mini
O’s—as it has for more than 20 years—through tire service for the riders, tire
discounts, sticker giveaways and more. The Geomax® MX33 was the tire
of choice for both the Supercross and motocross events thanks to its versatile
performance over a broad range of terrain conditions.
Team Dunlop Elite riders won
12 championships, including Haiden Deegan, Nick Romano and Daxton Bennick each
winning three titles. Taylor Allred, Crockett
Myers, and Hunter Yoder all earned one title. Team Dunlop Elite alumnus Jalek
Swoll took the prestigious Dunlop Silver Tire Award for scoring the most motocross
and Supercross combined points in the Pro/A class.
“Mini O’s is a great family event
that really brings people from all parts of the country together in a special
way,” said Rob Fox, Dunlop’s Amateur Motocross Support Manager. “We’re proud of all the Dunlop
riders for their accomplishments at this year’s Mini O’s.”
