As we wrapped up the last day of the 52nd Mini O’s, I wanted to give a shout out to every single rider who put their talents to the test on this grueling MX course. This was one of the roughest tracks I’ve ever seen and every single person who raced it is a badass. 

Beckham Smith

Whatever it takes to be a motocross rider this kids got it. Beckham won three supercross titles and a MX title, while backing those up with three top 5s and a top 10. The KTM rider was dominant on the supercross track and carried that momentum into MX. While it took him a while to lock in that outdoor title, on the last day Smith pulled off a win in the 51cc 4-8 limited class! 

Tristan Prueitt

This kid had a weekend once can only dream about: six titles and three second place finishes. I’m not sure it can get much better than that. Prueitt just couldn’t be stopped whether it was on the SX track or MX track he was out front. Tristan finished his day today with wrapping up a title in Mini Sr 2. If there aren’t any teams talking to this kid yet, I’m sure there will be a line knocking at the door soon. 

Mayla Herrick

While Mayla didn’t take home any titles this week, she shouldn’t be upset with her results. Mayla took home three top 10s in SX with her best finish being a third in Girls 11-16. She continued her success outdoors with three more top 10s. Now, as I said she didn’t take home any titles, but this girl is rolling with the best of the best in the Mini Sr class and she races her mini in the women’s class against 250s. Mayla you’re a badass and congrats on giving the guys and girls a run for their money! 

Landon Hartz

If you didn’t know the name you do now. This kid has been working his ass off and it finally all came together. Hartz finished SX on the podium in his 250B class with a third and a top 10 in his other two classes. With the outdoor track being super rough, I was excited to see how he would handle the course. Well, let’s just say this kid can ride a rough track. Hartz finished with a seventh in Schoolboy 2 and a third in 250B. Hartz last class being the 450B and taking home a win in moto 1, this was his lost shot of the week to win. Hartz got out front early and stayed out front. Landon rode the deep rutted track perfectly and was able to take home the title in 450B. Congrats, Landon! 

Drew Adams

Consistency, that is the best word to describe the Team Green rider. Drew finished his first motos on the MX track with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd in his classes, setting himself for a chance at three titles. Drew took advantage of his phenomenal first moto performance and took home two titles in the 250 Pro Sport and the Open Pro Sport. Drew was solid on starts all week and really didn’t have to fight through the pack. With the consistent starts and managing to make zero mistakes from what I saw, Adams showed he belongs at the top of the A class and he’s here to win.
