Mitch Oldenburg entered the pro ranks as a privateer. Although clearly not as ideal as making that transition with the support of a factory squad, Oldenburg’s persistence and hard work paid off, landing him a spot on one of the coveted 250SX squads – Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing Team.
Oldenburg had a breakout season with a pair of 250SX podiums in 2017. Last season’s forward charge unfortunately was interrupted with injury, but the 24-year-old looks ahead to a better 2019.
