Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series Spring Cup 2012: Comp. Edge

The Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series Spring Cup came to a close at Competitive Edge. The warm weather made in the desert made it feel as if summer came early, which added another challenge to those racing in the event. The diverse layout and challenging track conditions make the Hesperia track a notorious training ground for amateurs and pros alike, and with 30 motos run over the course of the day, it lived up to its reputation. With so many races on the day's agenda, the crews that make up Comp Edge and the Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series helped the event hurry along in a timely manner.


Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series sponsors awarded the top finishers with an assortment of prizes, including track essentials such as gas cans and pit boards to protection gear from Bell Helmets and Leatt Brace. MTA, BTO Sports, and Kal-Gard lined the vendor's row with stocks of the parts, accessories, and chemicals needed for a day at the track. The option to purchase products or services trackside on vendors row has become a mainstay at each event.

Bell Helmets was kind enough to hook up a lucky few racers with these rad new lids.


Everything from Beer Goggles to Leatt-Braces were available to lucky few of the riders.


The action in each class drew the crowds to the fences that surrounded the winding layout, no matter the size of the bike. Carson Mumford and Stilez Robertson lead the 65cc classes, while Jeremy Byrne was the heavy hitter in his 85cc motos. Talon LaFountaine’s sweep of the Novice class was upset when a crash off the line in his third moto of the day led to a DNF, but he regrouped and scored a win in the fourth and final moto. Jessie Huntley and Dylan Merriam were the clear leaders in the Intermediate division, but Huntley was able to hold off Merriam's many pass attempts and scored the overall wins in both the 250 and 450 Intermediate overalls. A Class racer Austin Burns would take the win in the 250 class after making the trek to Hesperia from Arizona, while Broc Shoemaker claimed the victory in 450 motos.


Talon La Fountaine was the top dog in the Novice class taking home three wins.


Jessie Huntley took home two overall wins in his respected Intermediate classes.


Austin Burns was the man to beat Sunday. He made a clean sweep of his 250A motos.

The Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series will take a small break before the Summer Cup kicks off in two weeks at Comp Edge on June 3rd.
