All of the time teams spend chasing the perfect set-up, the lightest weight product, and the most durable, yet best performing product is all for naught if their tire selection is off. Need an example? After the wet and muddy morning practice sessions, James Stewart stated that he chose a soft terrain tire for the first moto at Unadilla this past summer, but the track had become slick and hardpacked in the time since practice, and the bike was difficult to control at race speed. The staff at Dunlop have travled to each stop of the AMA Supercross and National schedule and know the soil type their racers will encounter, which makes it a simple task to outfit them with the perfect tire for the day. While in St. Louis, a stop which is herald for its soil, we spoke with Dunlop’s Brian Fleck on one of the most understated areas of a bike.
