Monday Kickstart Presented by ONE Industries – TWMX SLAM

The 2010 TransWorld SLAM and Industry Cup descended onto Milestone Ranch MX Park this weekend for two days of riding, racing, and trackside nonsense. The Industry Cup got things started on Friday, with 18 teams comprised of moto industry employees going to battle in a 3-moto format, much like Motocross of Nations. Each team competed for the 3-foot Tretta-Motoda Cup and, obviously, bragging rights for the entire next year. The DEFT Family team, made up of Logan Darien, Andy Bakken, and Brian Foster took home the Cup, after a close win over Team FMF. The EKS Brand team rounded out the podium.
From there, the SLAM switched into gear on Saturday, welcoming the public in for a free ride day and opportunity to watch the SLAM Pro Race at the end of the day. The SLAM race, which TWMX introduced last year, is bracket-style and pits two riders in a two-lap one-on-one battle. What started as a field of 18 racers, came to a climactic peak with a final dash for the cash between Geico Powersports Honda’s Wil Hahn and Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda’s Cole Seely.
