As if yesterday wasn’t hot enough, someone forgot to turn the heater off, as temperatures soared well beyond the 100 degree mark. Some of the big motos going off today were the second 250 A moto and the second Women’s Plus 14 classes. The 250 A division had one of the best motos so far during this hot and humid week, as Ian Trettel began out front and quickly put on a charge that afforded him a near five second lead. However somewhere in the pack, Gannon Audette was lurking, ready to break free of the pack of riders ahead. With laps clicking off, Trettel’s lead quickly began to shrink until Audette was within striking distance of his Suzuki teammate. A pass seemed inevitable, but Trettel was not about to relinquish what he hard worked so far for. Although there were some very close moves, Audette was never able to find a way around, giving Trettel a hard earned moto victory.
In Women’s competition, Alexah Pearson put a stomping on the competion, clearly having done her homework as she cruised to the second moto win for that class. She now has a second and first place finish heading into their final moto. The day was cut slightly short thanks to some thunder/lighting and some brief, but heavy, rains. Fortuntately the precipitation did not stick around for too long and the track should be in good condition for tomorrow as both the crew and participants will be forced to adjust to a slightly revized schedule. Here are a few shots from some of today’s racing action and as always, check back to transworldmx.com periodically throughout the rest of the week.
