What is the Michelin Cup?
The Michelin Cup was launched in 2015 and won by Heads and All treads Suzuki rider Greame Irwin. Second place went to Park lane KTM's Luke Mellows and third to St Blazey Husqvarna's Louie Kessell.
As we head into 2016 the championship format remains untouched. This is a championship that is open to any rider at the Michelin MX Nationals that uses Michelin tyres. Points will be gained, no matter what class you ride in and the rider with the most points at the end of the season will take home the Michelin Cup and a fantastic Michelin tyre sponsorship package. This is the first time that the Small Wheel 85’s can race against the Pro’s for the same prize.

After that it is as simple as turn up to the line for race 1 of the weekend with Michelin tyres on your bike and you will automatically be entered into the Michelin cup championship.
