Dunlop extends its congratulations to 2011 Team Dunlop members Pierce Brown, Garrett Marchbanks, Adam Cianciarulo, Sean Cantrell, Michael Mosiman, Chase Bell and Lance Kobusch along with a large contingent of Dunlop-equipped racers for their outstanding performances at the 2011 Mill Creek Spring Classic and 35th International GNC Motocross Final amateur national events. Team Dunlop racers won a combined total of 12 national titles at the two events, while a strong showing by Geomax-equipped racers garnered an additional 59 championships for a combined total of 71 national title wins by Dunlop riders.

Meanwhile, Marchbanks swept the 65 7-9 Mod championship and took the 65 7-9 Stock title. Mosiman clinched the 85 7-11 Stock championship; Cianciarulo dominated both Supermini 85-150 thru 16 motos to take the titlewin, while Cantrell nabbed the 85 7-11 Mod championship.
“The Team Dunlop program is now in its fifth year and we are really proud of the teamÃ¢Â€Â™s performance at both amateur national events,” said Primo Marotto, Dunlop’s Manager Amateur Motocross Support. Ã¢Â€ÂœNine first-time members joined ten returning members on the team this year and itÃ¢Â€Â™s great to see seven different squad members, including three of the newest members, on the podium so early in the season. The depth of talent on the team this year is as strong as ever. With more than 75-percent of the champions choosing to race on Dunlop’s Geomax range of tires so far, 2011 is shaping up to be another exciting year for Dunlop. We look forward to continuing our amateur race support program at events across the country throughout the 2011-racing season.Ã¢Â€Â
