Dunlop Elite alumnus Eli Tomac continues to rack up Monster Energy Supercross
wins, while fellow alumnus Justin Hill posted his fourth consecutive 250

been selected over the past eleven years to be part of the Team Dunlop Eliteprogram, and this year brings another crop of
talented amateurs with eyes on the pro prize. For 2017, the Team Dunlop Elite

preferred service at select races, plus advertising and promotional
opportunities in national media and on the Team Dunlop website. These riders
will compete at top amateur motocross nationals all across the country in
classes ranging from 50cc to Super Mini.
