Press Release – Guam International Raceway Motorcycle and Atv Corporation

2021 Monster Energy Guam Motocross Championships Round 1 

Round 1 of the 10 round 2021 Monster Energy Guam Motocross Championships was held this past Sunday at the Guam International Raceway in Yigo with strict COVID19 safety protocols in place. Racing kicked off at 11:30am after a morning of warm up practices. Classes ranged from several sized kids minibike classes along with a women’s minibike class up to the larger fuller sized machines of the 250, 450, Open and Over 40 Vet classes. The track was tough and had been built up during the off season which included several new features that launched riders into the air. The rough conditions however didn’t seem to slow the competitor’s speed nor their enthusiasm as each respective class saw tight bar to bar racing.
