ALVAREZ TAKES EXPERT CLASS AT TURKEY CROSS 2022

Aiken’s have hard luck in Heat 2

By Patrick Lujan

MARPI, Saipan – A fun-filled weekend of off-road racing came to a close at Cow Town Race Track Sunday afternoon with a sense of accomplishment and positive vibes.

The Marianas Racing Association from the CNMI hosted a successful event that will only be built upon by the two islands of Guam and Saipan.

“We couldn’t ask for a better weekend,” said event coordinator Cuki Alvarez, who celebrated his 52nd birthday on Sunday and also captured the Expert Class. “It was great to see this event happen and have all these riders come out to compete. The fans, too, came out to Cow Town to enjoy these exciting races.”

Expert Class

Heat 2 took place Sunday afternoon and the excitement was building for the big dogs of Marianas racing. Saipan’s Shane ‘Pikaboo’ Alvarez was coming off a Heat 1 win on Saturday with dad Cuki and Guam young gun Blaze Aiken in third.

Aiken took Sunday’s holeshot blazing out of the gate with the father-son Alvarez duo right behind. The three set the pace for the 12-lap main event with Aiken slowly building a descent lead.

That was until a flat tire on the 8th lap subdued Aiken’s hopes of a Heat 2 win.

“Flat tire man,” Aiken frankly said after. “And I was feeling good, too.”

Cuki went on to take the overall top spot with Pikaboo coming in second. Both went off track after to celebrate with the fans around.

“I’ve been riding and racing dirt bikes almost all my life, and it’s always such a fun and amazing experience riding and racing and making new friends, seeing good friends, catching up with old friends all in the name of MOTOCROSS,” Alvarez posted on his social media.

Legends Race

In the Legends finale, Kim Aiken couldn’t catch a break. A delayed start off the block put him behind the pack, only to catch up to second place in the opening lap. Another stall off a turn put him behind again, only to move up to 2nd once more. Finally, his gas tank emptied even before jumping the finish line hill. Aiken pushed his bike up the finish line hill with the help of his fellow competitors to wrap up Turkey Cross 2022. Biba Marianas!

The exciting weekend wouldn’t be possible without its sponsors: Monster Energy, Triple J, Marianas Visitors Authority, Port of Guam, Pacific Unlimited, Hafa Adai Signs, W5/Guahan Soldier, Seabridge, Philip & Sons, GSPN, GMSi, WIT, Hydra-Air Pacific, Mid Pac Far East, Fastenal, Unitek Environmental, APL, Rocky Mountain Precast, Smithbridge, Marianas Racing Association and GIRMAC.
