Buffalo, NY: Dunlop is pleased to announce that two of its elite Team Dunlop members will participate on the 6-member U.S. team as it defends the FIM Junior Motocross World Championship. Austin Forkner and Michael Mosiman, who are both in their second year as Elite Team Dunlop members, will represent the United States in Sevlievo, Bulgaria on August 26th aboard their Dunlop-equipped machines.
This is not the first time Team Dunlop members have appeared on the U.S. Jr. Motocross team. Chase Bell and Mark Worth helped lead Team USA to victory in the 2011 FIM Junior MX World Championship. Team Dunlop alumni and current 2012 Supercross Lites West Champion Eli Tomac also raced for the United States, winning the 125cc Jr. World Championship in 2009.
“Being selected to represent the United States in the Junior MX World Championship is a really special experience,” stated Tomac. “It is like the Motocross des Nations but for amateurs, so knowing you are part of an elite group of kids selected to go is an awesome feeling.”
Dunlop congratulates both riders on their achievements and wishes them the best of luck in Bulgaria.
