For many amateur motocross families, competing at the Mini O's event held
annually at Florida's Gatorback Cycle Park is a Thanksgiving tradition. Mini
O’s, also known as the Thor Winter Olympics, features both Supercross and
Motocross competition, and this year Dunlop riders won 41 of the 42 Motocross
championships, and 38 of 39 Supercross titles for a total of 79 championships.
Dunlop supported this major amateur racing event, as it has for 20-plus
years. Dunlop provides tire service for the riders, tire discounts, sticker
giveaways and more. As it has since its introduction, the Geomax MX3S 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 took 13 titles while Team Dunlop Alumni won 11
championships. Team Dunlop Elite riders who won Motocross titles included Haiden
Deegan, Jett Reynolds, and Nick Romano. Deegan, Romano, and Reynolds also won
Supercross championships, as did Daxton Bennick and Stilez Robertson. Team
Dunlop Elite alumni winners included Garrett Marchbanks, Jordan Bailey, Parker
Mashburn, Hannah Hodges, and Pierce Brown.
Dunlop continued its
tradition of awarding the prestigious Dunlop Silver Tire to the Pro/A division rider
with the most Motocross and Supercross combined points, and this year’s award
went to Carter Halpain.
O’s is a great tradition, and Dunlop is always proud to share that tradition
with so many great families,” said Rob Fox, Dunlop’s Amateur Motocross Support Manager. “We
congratulate all the riders for their achievements at this year’s Mini O’s.”
