Press Release –
Round three of the 2007 ITP/Yamaha QuadCross Championship Series, at Arizona Cycle Park in Buckeye, Arizona, presented a large and talented field of 26 Pro class racers with an extremely hard-packed, blue-groove track surface.
These super-slippery conditions served as an ideal demonstration of the capabilities of ITP’s new QuadCross MX tires.
Team Yamaha’s Dustin Nelson, the defending series champion, put in what he calls one of his best races ever, taking a dramatic come-from-behind victory aboard his QuadCross MX-shod YFZ450.
After cross-rutting off the starting gate and rounding the first turn in ninth place, Nelson sliced through the pack — often sticking to an inside line while his competitors were searching for traction wherever they could find it — and slid into the lead with two laps to go.
From there it was clear sailing to his first win of the young season, as well as the series points lead.
The performance of Nelson’s tires in this situation comes as no surprise, as the QuadCross MX was designed and developed specifically for the type of track conditions encountered that day at ACP.
The QuadCross MX features a specially formulated soft rubber compound that grabs traction on the slickest of surfaces, yet displays surprisingly long wear characteristics.
A completely new dimpled knob design complements this high-tech rubber compound to provide excellent bite during acceleration and braking, in addition to delivering well-balanced cornering performance.
The front QuadCross MX uses an all-new dual-ribbed dimpled knob pattern that steers precisely with a very light feel and reduced lateral roll. Light, fast and durable, the ITP QuadCross MX is currently available in front 20×6-10 and rear 18×10-8 sizing.
The ITP/Yamaha QuadCross Championship Series continues at Honolulu Hills Raceway in Taft, California, on May 6th, with seven more rounds to follow in 2007. All ATV racers are invited to participate, as there’s a class for nearly anyone. And the more times a rider enters, the greater his or her chance to win a GYT-R/ITP-equipped Yamaha YFZ450 in a drawing to take place at the series finale in December!
