Today, May 1, Michelin has launched six new racing tires, and to mark this official launch, the French company is inviting all racers to take part in the Michelin Power Evo Challenge. To promote the spirit of competitive riding, Michelin has launched this promotion at tracks throughout North America through its authorized Michelin Race Tire Distributors: Island Racing Services, Sportbike Tire Service, Motorace and Kennedy Motorsports.

Racers who accept the Power Evo Challenge should choose from the all-new line-up of race tires and report their best track times with the Michelin Moto Lap Timer app available for purchase on Apple and Android devices. Additionally, participants are encouraged to share their experience via social media and on Michelin’s tire review site at

The promotion focuses on the “Evo” ranges, which are designed to meet the needs of all riders from the professional racer to the track-day enthusiast. Riders can choose from a Michelin Power Slick Evo, Michelin Power Cup Evo or a Michelin Power SuperSport Evo front tire with a qualifying rear tire purchase, while supplies last.
