Entries Open for 2013 GEICO MiniMotoSX
The largest Mini Bike race in the world celebrates tenth anniversary

Irvine, CA. (January 30, 2013) – The tenth annual GEICO MiniMotoSX, Fueled by Monster Energy will take place during the Monster Energy Supercross finals weekend in Las Vegas. On Sunday May 5th, you can put your own gear on and hit the track inside the Orleans Arena. This is the largest Mini Bike race in the world and you can expect over 300 riders to compete for AMA number 1 plates and the largest purse in Mini Bike racing. There is a $3,000 purse on the line for each of the two expert main events and an additional $3,000 for the World Final.

“Racing Mini Bikes is a lot of fun and I am proud of the fact that we have created the largest Mini Bike race in the world and made it to year ten” said Eric Peronnard, the co-creator of MiniMotoSX. “Mini Bike racing is not as popular as it was a few years ago so I am not sure we will make it to eleven but we will build another great track and hope to remind everybody just how much fun it is to race Mini Bikes and generate enough excitement to keep going for the future”.

Everybody can race as there are eight adult classes and three youth classes as well as a Women’s class. And new for 2013, Electric bikes are eligible to compete in the appropriate classes based on wheel size and wheelbase. For the fourth year, the MiniMotoSX will conclude with the World Final race that pits the top three finishers from the Expert & Youth classes plus the Women’s champion to take on the International Champions for bragging rights and cash. This event is a great time for racers and spectators and for most; this is the closest you can ever get to racing a Supercross. Entries are open now and you can make it a complete Supercross weekend in Vegas.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary MiniMotoSX, we will provide each rider that has competed in at least one class during the previous nine events one free entry!
