RIDERS ENJOY GREAT CONDITIONS FROM ROUND 1

JR Cepeda gets top slot out the gates

PRESS RELEASE – It was all quality family fun at the Guam International Raceway Yigo once again with the kickoff of Round 1 of the 8 round 2023 Monster Energy Guam Motocross Championships held this past Sunday. Racing kicked off at 10:30 am with the schedule full of kid’s minibike and kids atv classes along with riders racing in the big bikes and atv classes. There were several families that had three generations of competitors that were swinging a leg over either a two or four wheeled machine to enjoyed a great day of motocross fun. Moms, dads, sisters, brothers and in a few cases grandpas were all getting down and dirty in a good way at this past Sundays round 1. Weather was perfect with a cool breeze that help to carry the mouthwatering scent of savory chicken and ribs being barbecued. The Jose and Herminia Calvo Memorial Offroad Park is family friendly and had its motocross track recently updated to reflect this with several new changes for the riders for the 2023 championships. The updates to the course were mom and auntie approved and yet are still very popular with both the riders and the fans.

Highlights and results

In the Open Motorcycle class defending champion JR Cepeda aboard his #1 plated Yamaha swept both heats for the overall win but was kept honest by a hard charging #31 Tim Wenden abord a KTM. The two leaders had separated themselves from the rest of the field by midpoint of the race. Running in third  and fourth were a pair of Cycles Plus Kawasaki riders #85 Blaze Aiken and #18 Lil Jon Aguon.  The Cycles Plus team riders put on a great race battling for the third place position with #18 Lil Jon Aguon taking third at the final checkers. Round 1 results are as follows.
