SCOTT Sports and team riders journeyed from all corners of the United States to compete in the 41st Annual Mini Olympics Amateur Motocross National, located in Alachua, Florida. The Mini O’s split the race week into two different forms of racing, supercross and motocross. The combination of two disciplines allows for an exciting mix of racing and results. SCOTT Sports Athletes Jordan Bailey, Ethan Mann, Enzo Lopes, Aaron Plessinger, Daniel Baker and Jazzmyn Canfield all finished at the top of their respected classes this year, bringing home a combined eleven championships for SCOTT Sports.

He narrowly missed out on a clean sweep of his classes with a 2nd overall in the 85 (9-11) Mod SX class. To top off the week, Jordan was also recognized as the Asterisk Ironman/Sportsmanship award winner this year.
