OGIO | OGIO takes Champions to the Finish Once Again!
Since 1987 OGIO has been designing, developing and producing the world’s most durable travel essentials. The OGIO Focus on Moto and Powersports has allowed painstaking detail and durability into key products to take top athletes to events globally with their critical equipment protected and intact.
2020 brought a host of challenges to our top athletes racing in the 2020 AMA Supercross and AMA Motocross season. As Supercross racing battled Covid-19 restrictions after the Daytona SX round, FELD Entertainment made a never seen before deal with the Utah State Commission allowing the series to run the final 7 rounds of AMA Supercross at the Rice Eccles stadium. To the delight of race fans and to the delight of competitors, the season remained intact.
At OGIO we couldn’t be more proud of our OGIO athletes for charging through these unusual circumstances. More than 130 athletes and 16 Factory and Privateer supported teams, competed in races Globally during this unprecedented Pandemic. Despite the hardships brought on by the change in Protocol and the change in schedules, OGIO was able to safely and securely transport all of our athletes to the finish line.
In the AMA Supercross Series, OGIO supported athletes brought home both the 250 AMA East and West Coast Supercross Championship Titles! Dylan Ferrandis fought hard to win back-to-back Championship titles taking again the title in the West for 2020. Chase Sexton again battled through another impressive season going back-to-back and taking once again the 2020 East Championship title.
With the AMA Outdoor season in question due to Covid-19, MX Sports worked tirelessly and settled on 9 rounds of racing. This shortened series had the race intensity at heights we’ve never seen before which pushed Zach Osborne, in only his second season in the Premier 450 class, to become the AMA 450 MX Champion! In classic, gritty, ZO16 style, Osborne put an end to Eli Tomac‘s MX national three year reign! Osbornes tireless efforts have now solidified him as the top dog in the AMA Outdoor National 450 class.
The always exciting Outdoor season in the 250 class didn’t disappoint fans as there were battles in nearly every moto! The back and forth racing between OGIO Athletes Jeremy Martin and Dylan Ferrandis will now become legendary in the AMA history books! When the dust settled on the season at the final round at the Pala Motocross National, it was Dylan Ferrandis taking home the number one plate narrowly beating Martin out on points for the entire Outdoor season!
We’re extremely honored and proud to be an integral part of our athletes successes in 2020! We sincerely hope the hundreds of professional athletes and thousands of amateur athletes who depend on OGIO continue to race hard and travel safely going into the 2021 season. May 2021 bring all of us some much needed COVID relief and some good solid racing that both Athletes and Fans can enjoy.
