ITP’s ANDY LAGZDINS TAKES 2007 OMA NATIONALS
Cross-country race veteran Andy Lagzdins
captured his first number one plate at the final
round of the 2007 OMA Nationals ATV Championship
Series at Millerstown, Kentucky. Lagzdins had
set the table for this title by winning five of
the previous nine rounds, and needed only to put
in a solid finish in the series finale to clinch
the championship. The 38-year-old Baltimore,
Maryland, native did just that with a
conservative second-place ride, taking the
checkered flag less than a minute behind
three-time and defending champion Rob Zimmerman.
Lagzdins accomplished this feat despite
fracturing his throttle thumb at the third round
of the series in May while leading the
championship, forcing him to miss the fourth
round and ride hurt in the fifth. But Lagzdins
rebounded to put his Duncan Racing-backed Honda
450 back on top of the standings by winning
rounds six, eight and nine.
Lagzdins used ITP Holeshot GNCC front and
rear tires throughout the 2007 OMA Nationals.
His tire choice reliably provided an ideal
balance of acceleration, braking and cornering
performance, as well as a light feel and smooth
ride, which reduces rider fatigue during long
stints in the saddle. Photo by: Harlan Foley.
