This past Sunday round 5 of the 2018 Monster Energy Guam Motocross Championship was held at the Guam International Raceway located in the northern village of Yigo.
With clear sunny skies the race course was dry, dusty, and rough with a layout that included a minefield of challenging obstacles that kept both the competitors and the fans on their toes. Free to come out and watch the racing kicked off at 11:30 that morning and went on late into the afternoon with several classes running two heats to determine class round winners.

In heat two the Ground Tech Services supported Yamaha piloted by John Aguon was on the throttle first as he took the lead followed closely by the #31 of Tim Wenden.
