HUMATAK OFF-ROADING KICKS UP SOUTHERN DIRT

Riders still looking for space to compete

PRESS RELEASE – It’s been over 310 days since the CLTC’s eviction locked out our islands motorsports enthusiasts and mountain bike community and many other family oriented sporting groups that regularly used the Guam International Raceway in Yigo. This lock out left in particular the island motocross riders and their families with no safe facility to practice their sport effectively strangling it.

After months of repeated efforts to find a solution with the CLTC and our island’s leaders the people still remain locked out of the Guam International Raceway the only purpose-built facility of its kind on island.  So it was with great excitement and joy that when it was announced back in mid-February that the beautiful southern village of Humåtak would host the Guam History and Chamoru Heritage Day Festival Motocross in their village with a course located right next to the iconic Humatak bridge in which motocross racers along with their family will once more be able to enjoy quality time doing what they love for generations now.

The village opened itself up to our islands racers and had allowed riding seven days a week and for organized racing to be scheduled for the entire month of March to help promote rider safety, sportsmanship, and quality family time. Three rounds of motocross racing were quickly scheduled, and each one had a different layout to challenge the many respective classes that ranged from kids ages four years and up in the minibike and atv classes all the way to our islands veteran racers in the big open atv and motorcycle classes.

This past Sunday the Guam Motocross Club held its third motocross of that scheduled March three round series in Umatac and once again the thrills and spills kept those in attendance lining the course. Racing kicked off early just before lunch and included classes for ages from 4 years and up. The racing lasted for several hours as each class competed in two heats that would combine their results for an overall finish.

In the premier two wheeled class the Open Motorcycle series points leader #18 Little Jon Aguon aboard his Cycles Plus Kawasaki 450 had his hands full with the return of Guam’s reigning champion #1 JR Cepeda aboard his Yamaha 450. Cepeda wasted no time grabbing the lead off the start and then holding it to the finish in both of heats to take the round win. Aguon rode strong and took second with #85 Blaze Aiken also on a Cycles Plus Kawasaki taking third. The overall three round series Humatak champion went the #18 of Little Jon Aguon with Yamaha mounted #20 Zack Cruz taking second overall and #51 Frank Rios third overall.

In the premier four wheeler class the Open ATV saw tight bumper rubbing race action that once more lit up the crowd .  #2 Robert Bucek took the win and thereby secured the overall series championship aboard his Cycles Plus Suzuki. Taking second was the reigning Guam Open Atv champion #27 James Lujan aboard his Yamaha who also secured second overall in the series. Third was #88 Yamaha mounted GMSI supported Camillo Lorenzo who emerged with third overall in the series.
