Mini Os Here We Come

FXR Contingent | November 18, 2016

By Dawn McClintock

Next to Loretta Lynns Amateur National, the Mini Os is probably one of the most prestigious event a rider can notch into their resume. The countdown is on for the 45th Annual Thor Winter Olympics (Mini Os) at the famed Gatorback Cycle Park in Florida. We take a look back at some of our competitors from last year and list off some of our newly signed athletes that will be making an appearance starting November 21st and running until November 26th. Our list is growing as we speak and if you havent let us know that you will be there, please pop me an email so we can get you on the roster for our photographers. Send me a message at

We will see the return of Nolan Heppner again this year for Mini Os.


Last year we saw Nolan Heppner take the 450B championship.


Austin Watling will be returning again this year.


Another guy with great results at the end of the week. Austin Watling came home with the 2015 250C championship.

Watch for Brandon Hartranft mixing things up in the 250A, 250 Pro Sport, 450A and 450 Pro Sport. He will be doing four classes in supercross and 4 classes in motocross. #beastmode | James Lissimore photo

Next is young Minnesota native, Cameron Skaalerud who will be riding both 85 (12-13) and the Supermini 1 classes. You can bet that the Supermini 1 class will be one heck of a wild ride to watch. | MX Matt photo


Tennessee rider, Armando Fehr will be there to represent as well.

New, freshly-inked FXR contracts to ride Mini Os (so fresh we havent even had a chance to photograph them in their new gear) include Ladies rider, Paige Reeser from Michigan and South Carolina fast guy, Greye Tate who will be racing 450B and Collegeboy.

As mentioned earlier, please contact me if you are competing and I do not have you on this report. Thank you and all the best to our riders competing in Florida next week!
