Buffalo, NY: The Summer X Games in Los Angles, California, always deliver hours of exciting viewing to millions of extreme sports fans, and the competition in 2013 seemed better than ever. Dunlop athletes fared very well; in the eight Moto X categories, Dunlop-sponsored riders scored 23 of 24 podium positions.
In the dry, hard-packed track conditions that made for tricky riding in many of the final events, many of the freestyle and MX riders choose Dunlop’s Geomax® MX71™ tires for the slippery conditions.
Our congratulations go out to all the X Games Dunlop riders, with a special shout-out reserved for the following Gold Medal winners:
Josh Hansen – Moto X Best Whip
Taka Higashino – Moto X Freestyle
Ronnie Renner – Moto X Step Up
Nate Adams – Moto X Speed & Style
Vicki Golden – Women’s Moto X
Taddy Blazusiak – Men’s Enduro X
