250/450- Michael Mosiman
Sebastopol, California’s Michael Mosiman shreds. In 2015, Michael wore the competition out aboard his KTM machines in the B classes. Mosiman’s attack began back in November of 2014 where he burst onto the 250 B scene with second place overall. Michael again put together a string of strong finishes at the California Classic. Michael finished with the fastest racers in many classes throughout the week, labeling himself a threat in multiple areas. A first place overall in the Schoolboy 2 (14-16) class, second in 250 B Mod, and third in 250 B Limited at the Classic were more than enough to prove he has “it”! Mosiman wasn’t finished impressing the nation and his native Californian’s yet, blasting into Mammoth Mountain and out with a heated win in the 250 Modified class up in the clouds. Michael “Podium” Mosiman laid it down once more in the sweltering Tennessee heat locking down second and third place finishes in 250 B Limited and Modified. Opting out of the Monster Energy Cup, Mosiman has been working hard and has some very big news right around the bend. If things work out in his favor, expect his biggest push for amateur supremacy yet in 2016 and beyond!
Two-Stroke- Michael Hartensveld
Keeping the North Eastern 2 Stroke tradition alive, Michael Hartensveld gripped and ripped his way to quite a few nice finishes along the 2015 race season. Competing in a few GNCC races as well, Michael is very well rounded and one of the more versatile riders on the track. Hartensveld’s third place overall finish at the James Stewart Freestone Spring Championship in the Two-Stroke B/C (16+) class serves as the first notice that in 2016 he will be a force to be reckoned with, especially when aboard his two-stroke!
Supermini- Conner Mullenix
Conner Mullennix aka THE MAN! Conner shreds and oozes style…on and off the track. Mullennix and his FMF powered KTM’s have been making statements for a moment and 2015 followed the trend. Conner railed his way around the track at the California Classic securing second place in Supermini 1 (12-15) and a big first place overall in the stacked Supermini 2 (13-16) class. Conner made it into Loretta’s with ease and performed like a finely tuned machine in the stressful Tennessee conditions securing third overall in Supermini 1 (12-15) in front of all of the right people. With just a bit more tuning 2016 could belong to Conner and the #88 machine.
65cc- Nicholas Romano
Bayside, New York based Nicholas Romano shut down any neigh sayers this year sticking himself in podium contention regularly at every event he attended. Podium and top five results at Mini O’s brought about the confidence needed to continue to push it the rest of the season, leading to a second place finish in Texas at the James Stewart Freestone Spring Championship in 65 (7-9) Limited. Romano brought the heat again in that class at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch, facing the grueling temperatures and landing in third place overall for the week. Romano has been killing it in the Mainline Series of District 6 grabbing himself a few big wins recently there and most recently at the Kawasaki Race of Champions!
