The following is from Dunlop…
Buffalo, NY: Dunlop is pleased to announce its Elite Team Dunlop lineup for the 2014 season, which has grown from 18 to 20 young stellar amateur motocross racers. Since its inception in 2007, the Team Dunlop program has continued to feature a diverse range of up-and-coming motocross stars, and 2014 will be no different. All 20 Team Dunlop National riders receive special tire support, preferred treatment service at select races, plus advertising and promotional opportunities in national media and on the Team Dunlop website.
New team manager Rob Fox will head the 2014 program, which will showcase 15 returning members and five new members. “Selecting this year’s group of riders was a difficult proposition because there are so many great riders out there, so we added more members to the team,” said Fox. “Team Dunlop has a long record of choosing not just fast amateurs, but racers that fit all the criteria that it takes to be a champion, and this year’s Elite team of riders continues that tradition.”
Since Team Dunlop’s inception eight years ago, many of the team’s riders have made successful transitions to the professional ranks, riders such as Justin Barcia, Eli Tomac, Blake Baggett, Ashley Fiolek, Justin Bogle, Matt Bisceglia, Justin Hill, Adam Cianciarulo, Jessy Nelson and Joey Savatgy to name a few.
Dunlop will release the Team Dunlop Elite rider information one rider each day on www.teamdunlop.com starting January 29th. Check there everyday to see who has joined the Elite team for 2014.
Dunlop congratulates both new and returning Team Dunlop members and wishes them the best of luck throughout the 2014 season.
