Dunlop-12-7-11Buffalo, 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.

Blazusiak-Endorocross-X-games-8-5-13Poland’s Taddy Blazusiak earned his second Los Angeles X Games Enduro X gold medal in three years by riding a flawless main event. The KTM rider withstood heavy pressure first from his teammate Mike Brown and later from Colton Haaker on the Lucas Oil JCR Honda but both riders made mistakes that allowed Blazusiak to hold a narrow gap to the finish.

Brown recovered from a few small mistakes to take the silver medal and Beta’s Cody Webb rode a consistent race to take the bronze medal in his first race back from a broken foot. Haaker finished fourth and Monster Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert took fifth.
