Downsizing: Moto XXX Introduces Brand New Mini Team

In early 2005, Moto XXX co-founder Erik Sandin developed a plan to start the team’s first mini cycle racing effort. Along with some fellow racers and close friends, he started talking to potential sponsors and outlining what would become the most organized mini racing effort to date. Still in its infancy, the team has already had startling success both on the track and in securing sponsorship. In the Podium Productions Aftermath Series, an 8-round championship that paralleled the first west coast Supercross rounds, team riders captured two titles. Upcoming events include this year’s Mini Moto SX in Las Vegas along with many others. Officially dubbed Moto XXX/A-Ride MX, the team is proud to announce its inception and introduce the riders.
