Cobra Dominates 50cc Competition At Recent World Mini GP Competition In Las Vegas

Cobra Motorcycles capture 88-percent of top five 50cc finishes (22 of 25)

NORTH LIMA, Ohio, (April 20, 2006) ¿  Cobra Motorcycles’ Blake Green and Conner Mitchell were the big winners on the little bikes at last week’s World Mini GPs in Las Vegas.

The King Cobra-mounted Green won the 7-8 50cc Stock class, with his Cobra National Team teammate Mitchell winning the 7-8 50cc Modified class (Green being second). Then in the Super Pee Wee competition it was Green taking home the gold and Mitchell the Silver to complete an entire sweep for Cobra of the top spots in the 7-8 50cc class.

“Both Blake and Conner rode awesome this past week, we’re really proud of them,” said Sean Hilbert, President of Cobra Motorcycles. “Cobra had gained some momentum heading into Vegas with our excellent overall results from Lake Whitney and Oak Hill and Blake and Conner rode well enough to be crowned champions at the World Minis.”

Statistically even more impressive than Cobra’s dominance of the 7-8 division 50cc classes was the company’s complete sweep of the 4-6 50cc division. Cobra’s Sean Cantrell and Zay Solis each brought home titles in the 4-6 Stock and Modified classes, which featured a top-five overall sweep in both classes by Cobra bikes as well.

“Even the little guys were on it at Vegas,” said Hilbert. “A big `Hat’s off’ from the Cobra factory to Sean and Zay as well.”
