MiniMoto Enterprises, the company producing the PARTS Unlimited MiniMoto SX National to be held April 30th inside the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, has announced that they have concluded an agreement with the OUTDOOR CHANNEL to produce a one hour television program scheduled to air on Saturday, June 12th at 8PM.
“I would say this is a huge step for all the sponsors involved with our event and for the Pit Bike industry in whole,” claims Tim Clark, president of MiniMoto Enterprises. “I can not recall ever seeing a program dedicated entirely to Mini Bikes. With the caliber of riders that we have racing the event, I think this is going to make a great show.”
The PARTS Unlimited MiniMoto SX National is the first ever Pit Bike race of its kind with a custom designed miniature supercross track built specifically for the smaller bikes. Both amateur and pro classes are available for racing with the race program set up similarly to a supercross event. “This is an all day program,” continues Clark, “We have practice sessions scheduled in the morning, qualifiers in the afternoon and doors open at 7:30 for the main show which will include the fastest mini bike pilots on the planet. No doubt you can expect some great racing, especially with guys like McGrath, Stanton, Emig and Guy Cooper in attendance.”
One of the anticipated events is the MiniMoto des Champions, a race that will showcase the legends of supercross all aboard different size mini bikes. “This event is styled after the Motocross des Nations with National Champions invited to select a team of three riders with each entry riding a different size bike… one on a 10″ wheel, one on a 12″ wheel and the third on a 14″ wheel motorcycle,” explains Clark. “It is a virtual who’s who of motocross right now… we have McGrath, Cooper, Emig, Stanton, Danny LaPorte, Denny Stephenson and Buddy Antunez signed up… and you should see who their teammates are… guys like Hofmaster, Hagseth, Pingree, Jimmy Lewis, Chris Gosselaar and Kenny Bartram. This race will be big fun.”
In addition to the race there will be a Pit Bike Expo where the latest products and technology will be on display. “Here is your chance to check out the latest in aftermarket products for your Pit Bike. These are the guys that make the trickest parts to bolt on to your XR50 or KLX110… all gathered in one place.” The Pit Bike Expo is open free to the public starting at noon on Friday and will be held inside the Orleans Arena.
