DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., (March 9, 2017) – Today, at the famed Daytona International Speedway, Cobra Moto is proud to announce its team of factory-backed racers, select top up-and-coming motocross competitors from around the world, that will make up the heralded 2017 Cobra Moto Elite Team. 

Representing America’s deep South, West Coast, Midwest/Heartland and East Coast regions – as well as Australia - on Cobra Moto’s industry-leading CX series 50 and 65cc competition minicycles are ten of the world’s top young amateur motocross racers, premier class competitors who epitomize the pinnacle in terms of their regional and, ideally, national status later on this summer. 

“Cobra Moto has assembled what we believe to be one of our deepest and most talented teams,” said Cobra Moto President Sean Hilbert. “From top to bottom this year’s Cobra Moto Elite Team has what it takes to win on all levels, including the national championships at Loretta’s this August. We have veteran racers and newcomers that are sure to turn industry experts’ heads when the gate drops 

“From local events to regional and national races, we’re pumped to introduce the 2017 Cobra Moto Elite Team - and can’t wait for you to see them compete.”
