Western Australian Myles Gilmore is set for a Super Mini debut at the 2018 Monster Energy Cup later this month.

14-year-old Western Australian motocross athlete Myles Gilmore has been invited to be among the best 22 Mini Bike racers in the United States to compete in the competitive ‘Super Mini Class’ at this year’s Monster Energy Cup at Sam Boyd Stadium Las Vegas on the 13thOctoberl 2018.

The exclusive invite came back in August and Myles has been busy preparing to race supercross in front of 30,000 screaming fans and an international television audience. The unique layout of the MEC (Monster Energy Cup) will demonstrate the ability of a rider and maybe pick up some extra support for the next racing season.

The invite came off the back of a strong showing at the 2018 Loretta Lynn’s national championships in which Myles finished 5th and 6th in the 85cc Mini SR classes. He won a moto in the Mini Sr 1 (12-13) and placed third in a moto on Mini Sr 2 (12-14), as well as a championship at the 2017 MiniO’s supercross championships in 85cc 12-15 Class.

Myles trains as a full-time rider at the exclusive Millsaps training facility where he has spent the last 4 weeks preparing on the supercross track and amateur supercross track. Where Myles will pilot purpose built  Husqvarna USA 112cc Supermini in the exclusive event.

“I can’t believe I’m getting this opportunity to race in front of so many people.” said an excited Myles Gilmore when asked about the opportunity. “This is truly a dream come true. The atmosphere will be unbelievable and this is just another step in my goal to become a professional rider in Monster Energy Supercross. I hope I can ride well and represent my family, sponsors and Australia the best I can.”

Myles is the younger brother of Brady Gilmore who also races in the United States, however, unfortunately, this year Brady has caught the injury bug.
