2015 Guam New Years Motocross

This past Sunday Guam’s motocross racers and fans were back out at the Guam International Raceway for the final holiday event but the first motocross event of the new year. Sunday’s event dubbed the 2015 Guam New Years Motocross. A stand alone and non championship point earning motocross laid out as to help keep Guam’s championship contenders racing skills sharp in anticipation of the 2015 Monster Energy Guam Motocross Championships which will be a twelve round series that begins on March 15th.

Sunday’s event was also a starting point for those riders who are interested in participating in this year’s championship series. The course on Sunday was rough and very demanding physically with very little time for the riders to rest as they navigated through braking bumps, the ruts and over the many jumps.
