TWMXRS Fall Classic | Round 5 | Glen Helen Raceway
The end of the highly anticipated 2016 Fall Classic, presented by SPY is approaching, as the fifth round is scheduled to be held at Glen Helen Raceway this Sunday. The San Bernardino, CA facility has played host to many TWMXRS finales in the past, and for good reason; the rough and rugged conditions always make for some intense racing. After making our way round some of Southern California’s best motocross tracks, we’re looking forward to heading back to the hills of Glen Helen for yet another exciting weekend of racing.
It’s been an incredible series of racing thus far, and we’re looking forward to even more action this weekend. As always, this weekend’s racing will be divided onto two separate racetracks; the “Amateur” and “Expert” courses. With this two-track racing format implemented the wait-time in between motos is much shorter, and in some cases riders get through their second motos by the afternoon. It also offers the comfort and peace of mind of a not-so-challenging racetrack for those on the “Amateur” track. In addition, the TWMXRS is comprised of over 60 different classes, so there’s no compromising when it comes to finding the right class for you.
Each round of the TWMXRS features dozens of standout riders that showcase tons of speed, and during our last visit to Glen Helen for the Terra Firma race series it was TWMX test pilot Ryan Surratt who got the most attention. Surratt is no stranger to the hills of Glen Helen, as he went on to sweep both motos of Pro-Open for the overall, but with the So.Cal native currently racing Supercross overseas, who will be the next standout racer this weekend?
Yamaha has been involved with the TWMXRS for a number of years now, and they’re back at it again with another incredible giveaway. Likely one of the most exciting aspects of this weekend’s finale is the giveaway of the 2017 Yamaha YZ450F (pictured above). Riders have had the opportunity to drop their name into the raffle bin all season, and if you haven’t done so already make sure to throw your hat into the ring this weekend before the end of the first motos when the raffle begins.
Round up your buddies and get to the races by any means necessary. Even if that entails a wagon! We’ll see you all again this Sunday at Glen Helen Raceway for the fifth and final round of the 2016 Fall Classic, presented by SPY. See ya there!
