Amateur Roundup: Results and Race Recap from Mini O’s Supercross

Welcome back to the Vurbmoto Amateur Roundup where I bring you the latest in amateur motocross.

One of the biggest races of the Amateur Motocross tour is taking place right now at Gatorback Cycle Park down in Alachua County, Florida. If you’re not familiar with Thor Mini O’s, it is a weeklong event that starts off with amateur supercross on one half of the property and finishes with amateur motocross on the other half of the property. Want to know the best part? You don’t have to qualify for
this race to go. Because of that, this race has grown so much in the last few years that they had to add an extra day in order to stay on schedule for the week. There are classes with over 100 entries and long waiting lists. Mini O’s is a race you need to experience, just get there early.

Now that we are up to speed, let’s talk about the results. Tuesday marked the end of the Supercross portion of the week and champions were crowned once again. One of the cool things about Mini O’s is that you get to see how everyone performs as they move up a class after Loretta’s. We see a lot of familiar faces in the results sheets, but maybe not in the class you are used to seeing them in.

125 B/C

  1. Will Canaguier
  2. Owne Covell
  3. Riley Busse
  4. Heath Fisher
  5. Thor Powell

It is really unfortunate that we did not get to see Will Canaguier at Loretta’s this year, he got hurt at the FIM Junior Motocross World Championship where he ended up breaking both wrists. I think he would of 100% been a championship contender and he proved it here at Mini O’s by winning the Supercross portion. I look for him to carry this momentum into outdoors.


  1. Krystian Janik
  2. Avery Long
  3. Noah Smerdon
  4. Reven Gordon
  5. Collin Allen

250 Pro Sport

  1. Avery Long
  2. Drew Adams
  3. Krystian Janik
  4. Jaxon Pascal
  5. Ricci Randanella

450 Pro Sport

  1. Avery Long
  2. Heath Harrison
  3. Gage Linville
  4. Reven Gordon
  5. Cory Carsten

I lumped these three classes together because I want to talk about them as a whole. We have some new faces and a few returning faces in the A Class for this year. We see Krystian Janik, Drew Adams, Reven Gordon, Collin Allen, and a handful of other riders taking the step up from the B Class where they will remain through Loretta’s next year.

Janik took the win in 250A over Avery Long who seemed to be damn near dominating Mini O’s. If you have been around amateur motocross in the last 2-3 years, this should not come as a surprise to you. I met Avery at Loretta’s two years ago and I could tell that he was going to be near the front for a few years to come. Avery is the top dog headed into the motocross portion of the week. I think Troy Dog needs to recruit this man ASAP.

Drew Adams is walking away from Supercross with a second in 250 Pro Sport, an eighth in 450 Pro Sport, and a 10th in 250A and I think that Drew is going to be very hungry going into the motocross portion of the week. I do not think Drew is happy with these results and will be looking to improve in the second half of the week.

The last rider I want to talk about is Reven Gordon. I did not expect to see Reven in the A classes this year as he ran the B Limited classes at Loretta’s last year. I assumed he would continue the path from B Limited to B but maybe the A Classes was the right choice. He posted a few impressive results so far this week and I will be keeping a close eye as we transition outdoors. His style and form is damn near perfect so I think we will see him fighting for titles in the near future.


  1. Luke Fauser
  2. Ryder Malinoski
  3. Landon Hartz
  4. Caden Dundey
  5. Ryder Thompson

250B Limited

  1. Landon Gibson
  2. Landen Gordon
  3. Gavin Betts
  4. Diesel Thomas
  5. Max Shane

Look, I am not going to say I am the number one source for news and opinions in the amateur motocross world, but if you would reference my article from the Vurb Classic, what did I say about the B Classes? I said they were absolutely in trouble for two reasons. Luke Fauser and Landon Gibson. I mean… the results don’t lie. If you’re around motocross a lot, you sometimes just know. This is one of those cases.

Now I may speak pretty highly about Luke and Landon, but that does not mean there isn’t a bunch of talent in the rest of the field. We see a few riders moving up this year including Landen Gordon. I am excited to see Landen on a big bike this year because, like his brother Reven, his style and form is incredible. Landen was super impressive on small bikes, and I am excited to see how he transitions this year. Landen also won Schoolboy 2 over Fauser and Gibson.

Another rider I wrote about earlier in the year before Loretta’s was Ryder Malinoski. Ryder had a great run of results but had a really rough trip to the Ranch. I do not recall what happened, but I do not think it was what he was hoping for. After Loretta’s, he turned it around to what everyone expected and has carried that momentum into Mini O’s this year with a second in 250B.

Supermini 1 & 2


  1. Seth Dennis
  2. Wyatt Thurman
  3. Carson Wood
  4. Jayden Riley
  5. Colby Lessar


  1. Seth Dennis
  2. Wyatt Thurman
  3. Vincent Wey
  4. Wyatt Duff
  5. Colby Lessar

Seth Dennis and Wyatt Thurman topped the Supermini Classes this week with a load of familiar faces like Vincent Wey, Carson Wood, Wyatt Duff, Jayden Riley, and Colby Lessar. As always, the Supermini classes are stacked and one of the most competitive classes on the track. I look for more great battles headed into the motocross portion. If Seth Dennis can carry this momentum into the second half of the week, I think we may see him dominate the rest of the year.

I had to cut this one off at Supermini because it was starting to get a little long. I have not written in a while, and I am pretty bummed I couldn’t make it to Florida this year, so I got excited.

Anywho, this is going to wrap up the Amateur Roundup for supercross but I will be back next week at the end of the motocross portion to talk about that a little bit. Until then, head over to the Vurbmoto social media channels to stay up to date with what is going on I Florida this week.
