Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series- Winter Cup 2012: Cahuilla Creek

Round two of the Muscle Milk TWMX Winter Cup Race Series is officially in the books, and the event at Cahuilla Creek MX somehow managed to top the inaugural race at Perris. With nearly 500 entries, the track was rough and loamy throughout the day thanks to the excellent preparation that took place in the days prior to the event. The storm front that soaked the rest of Southern California collapsed before it reached the inland location, saving both Saturday's practice and Sunday racing.

With forty-six classes to be run over the course of seventeen motos, those in attendance were prepared for a long, yet exciting day. The 85cc class was the first to take to the track and filled the hills and valleys with their ringing engines for five long laps. The second moto of the day would be the Intermediate and Pro classes, and the speed and sound of Intermediate's Chris Alldredge and Jessie Huntley were a stark contrast to the minis that had just exited the track while Kevin Weisbruch swept both the 250 and 450 pro ranks. Close battles and come from behind finishes took place in every moto, as the long layout favored those who were able to outlast the competition through the ruts and bumps.

Round three of the Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series will take place at Glen Helen Raceway on Sunday, February 5th. Sign ups for the next event are now open at
