A friend that works at Hoosier posted these pictures. They are still in R&D stages but might be released soon. I'm anxious to see how they are, especially with Hoosier's presence in racing.

Talking with a friend that runs late models awhile back . We were honestly suprised they never made a moto tire before. They deffinatly have the racing background and knowledge for a mx tire. I bet it hooks up great on hardpack and flat coners.

Can't wait, that's probably gonna be a quality rubber

I get it and that's funny...& potentially true!

Stoked to see if this materializes.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

Hoosier is owned by Continental. Interested to see if it's all new or BNG from previous years.

YES!!! I hope this happens!

Has science gone too far?

Bingo. I think his is Conti’s dabbling into moto. They compete with Michelin and others in the mountain bike segment, so why not moto as well.

I’ll be a buyer for sure.

Aren’t Dunlop “American made”? Or outsourced to another branch of Goodyear in a foreign country?

Yep my grandfather was head of quality control at a plant he worked at for about 30 years, my grandmother worked there for only a few years less. They were my support growing up, played for about all my racing. They moved the plant to Venezuela or some shit when I was on 80's and that was the end for me. Went from riding a 3 to 4 days a week, racing every weekend and hitting amateur nationals to hardly nothing. Screwed them both on retirement, had to go back to school at 65 yrs old to get what they did. Goodyear can rot in hell.

I stopped into Hoosiers office once when driving by from Indianapolis on rt 31 and talk to a father that was an executive there who's son had gotten hurt. Tony Stewart sponsored him in MX.

Saw a few guys running them in AX this week. Said maybe mid-summer. i will be first in line...

Tomac and/or Anderson for 2020.....

That would be Eric Saunders’ dad. Can’t remember his name off the top of my head, they were always at RedBud when Eric was an amateur before he got hurt. Good people.

Man, I'd get a set just because the name looks cool on the sidewall!!!

That's a bummer. Hopefully he got a decent severance package. 30 years is a long time.
