Avon Motorcycle Tyres North America will sponsor vintage motorcycle racer and Spirit of Sturgis Vintage Festival organizer Brittney Olsen throughout 2017.

“Brittney brings amazing energy to every race and event,” said Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing for Avon Tyres North America. “We are proud to partner with her and look forward to the excitement that her passion for vintage racing will undoubtedly produce this year.”

The Speedmaster-MKII is a classic ribbed front tire and is available in street and race compounds. It features a curved tread profile and tread pattern typical of classic bikes.

Certain terms and conditions apply. Not for non-D.O.T. approved race tires. The warranty is valid on any new tire up to the first 1mm of tread wear and covers normal road use only. Incorrect inflation, off-road use, racing and deliberate damage will invalidate the warranty.

Avon Tires Helps Dryden Roast Burnout Record

Avon Tires-sponsored Victory Stunt Team rider Joe Dryden set a new Guinness World Record for the longest motorcycle burnout on the Victory Octane thanks to a set of Avon Storm 3D X-M 160/70R17 (rear) and Cobra 130/70R18 (front) tires.

The 2.23-mile record shattering burnout on a 2017 Victory Octane was completed at Orlando Speed World where Dryden smoked more than seven impressive laps.

Joe Dryden roasts some Avon tires aboard the Victory Octane on his way to the “World’s Longest Burnout” record.

“We’re proud to count Joe and Tony among an elite group of Avon-sponsored riders, and we were thrilled to hear that Joe had succeeded in this record setting run,” said Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing for Avon Motorcycle Tires North America. “Seeing the Avon Storm 3D X-M stand up to more than seven smoky laps was incredible.”

An official Guinness World Records adjudicator was on site for the attempt. He certified the new record and presented the award certificate to Dryden whose Victory Stunt Team partner and friend Tony Carbajal was standing by to help him celebrate. Carbajal had also sought the record on Avon tires that day, but it was Dryden who found the perfect recipe – managing throttle, break and clutch as only an award-winning athlete can.

Victory Stunt Team riders Dryden and Carbajal are among the world’s most accomplished performers on full-sized V-Twin bikes. Dryden, who began riding dirt bikes at age six, transitioned to Street Bike Freestyle at the age of 20 and is considered a pioneer in the sport. He has earned multiple awards and championships along with a resume of stunt work for film and television.
