The fourth round of the Muscle Milk TWMX Winter Cup race series is officially in the books. The TWMXRS crowd invaded California’s oldest motocross track and Perris Raceway delivered the usual goods-big jumps, tacky dirt and deep ruts. It was another successful outing for everyone in attendance and the competition was, once again, stacked!
The weather couldn’t have been anymore perfect for racing as the sun stayed behind thick cloud cover for the majority of the race day making for epic track conditions. The dirt didn’t dry out at all thanks to the efforts of the track crew and the tracks also held up really well considering a few hundred dirt bikes were hard on the gas all day. Probably the best part about a good race track, though, is that the racers can really push the limits when the dirt is nice and tacky and that was absolutely the case for round four.
As expected, some of the fastest local racers came out to dice it up with one another and really give the crowd a show. Cody Baker could quite possibly be named the fastest rider at this weekend’s event as he completely dominated 450A and Pro-Open. Baker won every moto and was in complete control the whole time. One of the most consistent riders was Tallon Lafountaine. Lafountaine entered three classes-250B, 450B and Schoolboy-all of which he finished on top of the podium for the overall. Lafountaine finished with a 2-1 in 250B, 1-1 in 450B and 2-1 in Schoolboy thru 17. The Open (Non-Pro) division saw Ryan Kubis with the overall with a 2-1 finish and in the 125 2-Stroke Open class, Chase Felong was the top finisher.
So much great racing was had at the fourth round of the 2014 Winter Cup and we hope to see you all again at round five, which will be held at Cahuilla Creek MX on February 16.
