Cobra Moto dominates the 51cc classes at Gatorback’s 43rd annual Thor Winter Olympics

California’s Ryder DiFrancesco captures three overall 50cc MX & SX titles and Canada’s Ryder McNabb, Pa.’s Kyle Born & N.M.’s Evan Woody add three more!

Cobra Moto Ryders, DiFrancesco, left, & McNabb @ 2014 Mini Os HILLSDALE, Mich. (Dec. 4, 2014) – The final major amateur national of the 2014 competition season wrapped up this past week/weekend with the 43rd running of Thor Winter Olympics, presented by Pro Circuit, at Florida’s famed Gatorback Cycle Park. And American-made Cobra Moto bikes were again the class of the 51cc races, capturing the majority of the MX and SX titles on the week, including podium sweeps in the premier MX and SX 7-8 Limited classes on the industry-leading CX50SR.

Wrapping up his illustrious career on Cobra Moto bikes, with three class wins (2 MX, 1 SX) at Gatorback, was California’s Ryder DiFrancesco. Certainly one of the all-time greats coming out of the legendary champion-producing Cobra Moto factory program, DiFrancesco captured the 51cc 4-8 Limited and 51cc 7-8 Limited MX titles, along with the 51cc 4-8 Limited SX title.

“We can’t say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with Ryder and his family over the years – he’s definitely one of the few riders to come out of Cobra Moto with an impeccable competition record during his tenure here,” said Sean Hilbert, President of Cobra Moto. “We wish Ryder the best with his racing in the years to come, and look forward to closely following what should prove to be a very successful pro racing career.”

Also coming up big at Gatorback for Cobra Moto was Canada’s Ryder McNabb. With a 51cc 7-8 Limited title in SX and podium finishes behind DiFrancesco in 51cc 4-8 Limited SX (2nd) and 51cc 7-8 Limited MX (3rd), McNabb was Cobra Moto’s second-highest scoring racer at the Mini Os. And joining McNabb with a 1st place podium finish in the 51cc 4-6 Limited SX class aboard Cobra Moto’s CX50JR was Pennsylvania’s Kyle Born, who was joined on the podium in an all-Cobra Moto/Pennsylvania sweep by Will Canaguier (2nd) and Luke Fauser (3rd)! New Mexico’s Evan Woody added the 51cc 4-6 Limited MX title for Cobra Moto, with Cobra CX50JR racer Danilo Pinheiro (Mass.) in the runner-up spot.

And on the 65s Cobra Moto was led by New York’s Reed Cooper, who placed a solid 5th in the 7-9 SX class.

Cobra Moto salutes its GNCC champs, launches the new off-road equipped Cobra CX 50 & 65

Indiana’s Lucas Grounds captures 1st place in the Grand National Cross Country Series’ 65cc class, Pennsylvania’s Nathan Dulaney adds the 50cc GNCC crown

Cobra Off Road package HILLSDALE, Mich., (Nov. 21, 2014) – The American-made Cobra Moto brand, which has won virtually everything in terms of competition mini cycle racing on the premier amateur MX tracks around the world, today recognized its two AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series, presented by Maxxis, champions – Indiana’s Lucas Grounds (65cc) and Pennsylvania’s Nathan Dulaney (50cc). And in the same breath, Cobra Moto would like to announce the launch of the new off-road package on its championship CX models.

First, Cobra Moto is pleased to acknowledge the two young men that got it done this season on the highly competitive GNCC circuit, Lucas & Nathan.

“We couldn’t be more pumped with the effort Lucas and Nathan, along with their families, put up racing the GNCC events over the summer and this fall,” said Sean Hilbert, President of Cobra Moto. “While we’ve enjoyed some success on the off-road circuit in the past, primarily with our quad line, this is the first 50cc and 65cc sweep for the Cobra Moto CX line on the GNCC circuit … and we’re absolutely thrilled.”

Grounds, aboard Cobra Moto’s CX65, was absolutely dominant in the GNCC’s 65cc 7-9 Youth Bike class, winning six of the 12 rounds he contested, making the podium in three of the six rounds he didn’t win and top five in the other three.

Dulaney was equally dominant, winning five of the six GNCC 50cc Sr. 7-9 class races on his Cobra Moto CX50 SR in the abbreviate season for the little guys, and placed a respectable 10th in the 65cc 7-9 Youth Bike class aboard his Cobra Moto CX65.Cobra Moto GNCC 65 cc 7-9 winner Lucas Grounds

So with the rapidly-growing interest in younger racers running GNCC, AMA Hare & Hound, Best in the Desert and other cross country and enduro-style races, Cobra Moto is rolling out a new off-road package for its competition CX line.

Based off the standard – American-made – championship-winning CX models, the new Cobra Moto off-road package is designed, built and tested in the most demanding competition venues around the States, including those of the GNCC tour. The added package of features will appeal to the serious off-road racer, turning the MX-friendly Cobra Moto CX65 and 50 into a bike very similar to the adult-size bikes the kids’ dads are running.

Suspension: Both the CX50 and CX65 are outfitted with fully-adjustable CARD suspension dialed for competition off-road racing. Cobra Motos’ renowned CARD forks have fully adjustable rebound and compression damping and bottoming control adjustment not found on any other fork of any size. The CARD rear shock is a piggyback canister model that is fully adjustable for rebound and high and low speed compression.

Engine: The 2015 CX65 has been fitted with a heavier flywheel, making the power delivery smoother, and traction easier to find. Water-cooled crankcases for the CX65 have been redesigned for more consistent intake charge temperatures, resulting in more power over the longer distances. Not only do both Cobra Moto off-road package models offer the largest air box in their class, they also feature the largest air filter. This translates into better breathing and filtration while providing more power and improved throttle response over long, torturous off-road races.

Clutch: The CX50s are equipped with an all new 5GX three shoe clutch. The new bolt, washer and bolt design, combined with the lightened clutch basket, keep the clutch temperatures a lower levels. This results in a clutch that hits as hard at the end of the race as it does at the start!

IMG_20 021 Protection: CX65 – Each motorcycle is equipped with Unabiker Dirt Bike Armor that protects the radiator while still keeping the bike cool. An additional Unabiker skid plate protects from the dangers that rise up from below, with the rear brake rotor being protected by a CARD shark fin. Acerbis hand guards offer stylish looks while holding up to the rigors of the woods. The CX50 receives the Unabiker Dirt Bike Armor to protect the radiator, along with the Acerbis hand guards.

Up next for Cobra Moto: The GNCC Bike Banquet will be this Saturday Nov. 22 in Morgantown, W. Va. at the Morgantown Events Center at Waterfront Place Hotel.  Next week is the 43rd Annual Thor Winter Olympics at Gatorback Cycle Park, Nov. 24-29, 2014.

Cobra Moto packs up and heads down under for the 2014 Australian version of Loretta Lynn’s!

American racers Johnny Weber, Brock Lassiter & Mason Tucker meet up with Aussie locals Jett & Rayne Burgess-Stevens to represent Cobra in Oz

Cobra Moto Johnny Weber on the CX65 HILLSDALE, Mich., (Sept. 19, 2014) – The American-made Cobra Moto brand continues to make great strides in amateur motocross racing around the globe, highlighted this coming week (Sept. 28-Oct. 2) with a trip to Australia’s version of the American amateur motocross championships (aka “Loretta Lynn’s), the Australian Junior Motocross National Championship held at MacArthur Motocross complex in Appin, New South Wales.

Led by Americans Johnny Weber (Wisconsin), Brock Lassiter (Missouri) and Mason Tucker (Pennsylvania), Cobra Moto’s run at the Aussie Jr. MX National 65cc & 50cc crowns will also feature the Tasmanian tandem of Jett & Rayne Burgess-Stevens.

“What a great experience this is going to be for Johnny, Brock and Mason, along with their families – extending far beyond the racing side of things,” said Cobra Moto President Sean Hilbert. “Educational, cultural and global competition – this is going to be something special for all of our Cobra Moto kids involved. Everyone at Cobra Moto is thrilled we were able to help bring this great opportunity together.”

Known simply as “MacArthur,” the private motocross facility – the largest of its kind in Australia – boast more than 5,000 members and has been in operation since the 1980s. The long-running amateur MX event, which features the top racers from Australia and New Zealand, was a proving ground for such American pro MX Nationals superstars as Chad Reed, Bret Metcalfe and Michael Byrne. MacArthur has also played host to a number of Australian Motocross National rounds in recent years.

Running the Cobra Moto CX65s at MacArthur will be Weber and Lassiter, while the Burgess-Stevens brothers and Tucker will be running the Cobra Moto CX50 SR. Stay tuned to Cobra Moto’s “Cobra Nation” Facebook page for updates and photos throughout the week from Appin, Australia!

Titles abound for Cobra Moto racers as the 2014 competition summer comes to a close

Mason Tucker leads a charge by winning 50cc titles in both Canada and New England; Canada’s Preston Masciangelo & Ryder McNabb add titles as well

Cobra Moto Canadian National MX champ Mason Tucker and his father, Darren HILLSDALE, Mich., (Sept. 11, 2014) – Fresh off qualifying amongst the world’s top 4 to 6-year-old mini bike racers for the American amateur national MX championships (aka “Loretta Lynn’s”), Cobra Moto racer Mason Tucker (Pennsylvania) shot up to Ontario, Canada’s Walton Raceway to contest the Canadian version of Loretta’s – and returned to the States as the overall champion in the 50cc division. Mason then backed that by winning the New England MX Championships, held at New Hampshire’s Winchester Speed Park.

Riding mini bikes darn near since he was able to walk, Mason’s got his first Cobra 50JR at three – and proceeded to sleep by it on the living room floor, for at least a week (until the weather in Pennsylvania was good enough to ride). “He never let that bike out of his sight,” said Mason’s father Darren Tucker.

Travel to a warmer climate (Carolinas) during the off-season would give Mason just the advantage he needed to contest the Mini Os, then eventually qualify for Loretta’s with a decisive victory out of the RedBud MX regional this past spring. A rough go of it at Loretta’s (opening moto crash while leading) would have Mason and his dad setting their sights on the Canadian National Championships.

Set up with a new bike from Cobra Moto to adhere to the Canadian MX rules, Mason had one day to practice on the bike before entering the gate on his first race outside the U.S. Met with heavy rains – which play havoc on the mini cycle classes – Mason was able to rally from a two-lap weather-shortened practice to win the opening moto against Canada’s top young 50cc talent.

Day two would see one of Mason’s best battles of his young career as he came back from a 4th place start and getting slowed down by a massive pileup to take the victory on the last turn of the last lap in spectacular come-from-behind fashion.

Then, with two wins under his belt in the three-day event, Mason gated on the final day with one thing in mind according to his dad … “Pull the holeshot.” The young Cobra Moto hotshot would do just that, gapping the rest of the field to complete the 1st/1st/1st sweep in capturing his first Canadian National Amateur MX Championship.

· Both Preston Masciangelo and Ryder McNabb, Cobra Moto Canadian Elite Team members, would capture titles 50cc Open (Masciangelo) and 50 SR (McNabb) titles at the Canadian MX Championships. Masciangelo would add two more titles at the Baja Brawl (Mich.).Bodee O'Neil

· Cobra Moto’s Bodee O’Neil would recently capture two AMA National Hillclimb grand championships on his CX65.
