Dunlop congratulates Team DunlopÃ¢Â€Â™s 2011 World Mini Grand Prix Champions Stilez Robertson, Garrett Marchbanks, Brandy Richards, Tanner Stack, Mark Worth, Michael Mosiman, Jordon Smith and Chase Bell. The talented Team Dunlop squad performed tremendously aboard their Geomax-fitted race machines at the World Mini Grand Prix held in Mesquite, NV, on April 11-17, racking up 12 national titles. In addition to Team DunlopÃ¢Â€Â™s excellent results, a strong showing by other Dunlop-equipped racers garnered 23 championships for a combined total of 35 national titles by Dunlop riders.
Robertson made a stellar return to racing after suffering an injury earlier in the year, clinching five titles at the week-long event. He dominated the 50cc-65cc-competition winning the 50 Pee Wee Stock and Mod 7-8 titles, plus the Super Pee Wee Mod 6-9 Championship and taking both 65 Jr Cycle Stock and Mod 6-8 victories. Richards swept the 65-85 Girls 2 Stroke Championship; Stack clinched the 85 Stock Thru 11 title, while Worth won both 85/150 Mod 12-13 motos en route to the title win. Smith nabbed the 85/150 Mod 14-16 Championship, while Mosiman swept the 85 Mod Thru 11 Championship and Bell took the Supermini Thru 13 title.
Ã¢Â€ÂœI canÃ¢Â€Â™t speak highly enough about Team DunlopÃ¢Â€Â™s outstanding performance at the World Minis,Ã¢Â€Â said Primo Marotto, Dunlop’s Manager Amateur Motocross Support. Ã¢Â€ÂœStilez Robertson made an incredible return to racing, winning five titles, and it was fantastic that over half of the Team Dunlop squad competing at the World Mini Grand Prix won championships. In addition to the 12 wins, Team Dunlop racers finished on an additional 17 podiums bringing the teamÃ¢Â€Â™s total podium finishes to 29. The level of competition at amateur national events is extremely high, and for the team to be able to perform so well at one event is a great achievement. With more than 80-percent of the champions choosing to race on Dunlop’s Geomax range of tires, Dunlop outperformed all other brands at the event.Ã¢Â€Â
