TWMXRS West Coast Open | Round Four | Cahuilla Creek
The 2017 TWMXRS West Coast Open, presented by SPY, has visited several Southern California racetracks throughout the series all of which are favorites amongst the community, and for the penultimate round we headed for Anza, CA’s Cahuilla Creek MX. Located roughly 25 minutes outside of Temecula, Cahuilla Creek houses true outdoor-style motocross tracks, as both “Expert” and “Amateur” tracks are laid out across the property’s rolling hills, and both courses are comprised of a somewhat sandy soil that never ceases to make for a good time amongst racers.
Over 470 Southern California motocrossers converged at Cahuilla Creek for round four of the West Coast Open, and amongst the many speedy guys out there was Womens Open points leader Hunter Daly aboard her KTM 250SX two-stroke. Daly has been the one to beat throughout the series in Womens Open, and her momentum carried into round four after logging two more extremely dominant moto wins for another overall. The Pearblossom, CA resident wasn’t finished though, as she threw her hat into the men’s ring in Sportsman Novice 125-450F where she finished with a 6th overall. Daly has put in a number of good finishes over the course of the series, and for her hard-fought results at round four she was chosen for the “SPY Breakaway Rider” award. Congrats and great riding, Hunter!
Julien Beaumer was a busy kid this weekend at round four with four classes entered. The Lake Havasu City, NV native put in several very impressive and consistent performances at Cahuilla Creek, as he put together a total of six moto wins out of eight and he was credited with overalls in 9-11 yrs 65cc, Open 65cc (No Beginners) and 0-11 yrs 85/150F.
The excitement continued in the 85cc classes at round four of the West Coast Open, as Kyle Looney led the way in Open 85-150F/Supermini and Big Wheel Open 85/150F. Looney encountered a bit of adversity in moto one of Supermini, though, after dropping back to eighth, but he was able to remount before finishing in fifth. Moto two went a little smoother for the Lakeside, CA resident, as he was able to finish in first for the overall in Supermini, as well as Big Wheel Open with a 2-1 moto score.
Long time TWMXRS attendee Kai Aiello was another youngster that put in some impressive finishes on the rough and rugged Cahuilla Creek “Expert” track aboard his Yamaha YZ 125. The #110 accumulated four moto wins and two overalls over the course of the day, and did so like it was just another day at the office. Aiello lined up for both two-stroke classes and emerged the victor in every moto, along with a second overall in Schoolboy (Thru 17).
Thanks to everyone that joined us a Cahuilla Creek MX for another great day of racing, and we can’t wait to do it all again at the series finale! Join us at Competitive Edge MX for the fifth and final round of the 2017 West Coast Open on June 4th. See ya there!
