The first ever Transworld Motocross El Dorado Nationals are officially in the history books and what an incredible string of races it's been. As the leader in amateur race serie's in Southern California, it was incredibly important to touch base at every major motocross track that sunny So-Cal had to offer and Competitive Edge MX Park seemed like the perfect place for the seventh and final round. The finale is always the most exciting at every series that TWMX puts on because of the incredible race series sponsors and as the official manufacturer of the races, Yamaha Motors once again delivered with their gracious gift of a 2015 Yamaha YZ85.
Once it came time for the raffle, what seemed like a crowd the size of a small town rolled on through the sign-up area, as it came time to raffle away the brand new YZ85. Once the dust settled and the giveaway had concluded, it was Ian Burke who sat aboard his new Yamaha! Congrats, little man! Also in the mix with great raffle prizes were goodies from EKS Brand Goggles, ODI, FMF, One Industries, Maxxis, and the rest of the sponsors to the series.
Competitive Edge is a classic outdoor style motocross track were many of the sport's elite, factory riders choose to practice and test for the professional national circuit, so it should go without saying that the High Desert facility gets a little rough at times. Well, today was no exception, as every rider in attendance not only battled each other, but the track, as well. Nate Feilmeier-the past winner of a Yamaha YZ450F-had a good weekend of racing. The Orange County native found himself at the top step of the podium on more than one occasion since he not only took home the overall in Schoolboy (thru 17), but was a front runner in the 125 2-Stroke Open class, as he and young Yamaha ripper Kai Aiello had some intense battles. Aiello was not only the first to the checkered flag in both motos of the 2-Stroke Open class, but he also dominated every Supermini and 14-16 85cc moto. Needless to say, Aiello had an incredible weekend of racing. Garrett Allen and his Yamahas also went home with a few overall victories. Allen absolutely swept both motos of 250 Intermediate and 450 Intermediate for a total of four moto wins. Moving on to the intense Pro classes, it was Yamaha riders Sebastian Lorenz and Dylan Anderson that finished with overall wins. Lorenz was another rider to go home with a perfect score of four moto wins in both 450 Pro and Pro-Open. And Anderson went home with the first place trophy in 250 Pro.
That concludes the 2015 TWMX El Dorado Nationals, but we hope to see you all at Milestone MX Ranch on April 10-12 for the TransWorld Motocross Trans-Am National. See you there!
