2017 Monster Energy Guam Motocross Championships Round 11

Round 11 of the twelve round 2017 Monster Energy Guam Motocross Championships held this past Sunday at the Guam International Raceway in Yigo was a challeging day of racing. With slick and muddy conditions during the early heats some riders were having problems just getting around he course. Fortunatly for the riders the course conditions dried up some and had developed into optimum conditions for the second half of the event.

Motocross classes that included both two and four wheeled motorcycle and atv’s ranging from kids mini classes up to the big machines of the adult classes hit the track Sunday in what was a challenging day of mud slinging racing. Racing kicked off just before noon with a hearty contention of both racers and supporters on hand and finished up just before 5 that afternoon.
