After months of preparing and organization, the Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series is ready to spread to Northern California for two championship seasons with the Spring and Summer Cups. Our first event in the area will be held this Saturday at San Jose’s 408MX, and will be part of the five race Spring Cup. In just one year’s time, we have become the largest amateur motocross racing organization in the the lower portion of the state and look to do the same with our partners in the north.
Located in the heart of Silicon Valley at the San Jose County fairgrounds, 408MX prides itself on being built by riders for riders. The plot of land is rather flat, but the numerous jumps and obstacles in the layout give riders of all skill levels a challenge. When disced, the soil becomes loamy and deep but after a day of riding, tends to pack into a fast circuit with numerous lines carved into clay.
408MX will open its gates on Friday, with open practice taking place from 9AM to 3PM. Racing takes place on Saturday, with gates opening at 6:30AM, practice starting at 8AM, and racing beginning soon after. To race, one must be a Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series member; annual membership is $35 and includes a subscription to TWMX, a $25 BTO Sports gift card, Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series T-shirt and New Era hat. Daily memberships are available for $10.
In addition to the standard prizes and awards, Yamaha, the official motorcycle manufacturer of the Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series, will present one member at the end of the Spring and Summer Cups with a Yamaha generator and Yamaha EZ Up. Racers will be given a ticket for each round that they enter and at the final round of each championship, one ticket will be chosen as the winner. The more you race, the better your odds.
Want to race? You have two entry methods that will get you in, but we are rather partial to one. Traditional raceday sign-up is available, with cash and now credit card as payment, but you can enter early through our online registration area and use the PayPal option. Payment via PayPal and increased odds at a better first moto gate selection make signing up on the web a viable option, along with this week's online entry prize. One lucky winner will receive a prize pack, courtesy of Muscle Milk. Early entry closes Wednesday, March 27th, at 11:55PM.
