The penultimate round of the Muscle Milk TWMX So-Cal Spring Cup Race Series is officially in the history books. As the tradition usually goes, Hesperia, CA’s Competitive Edge MX Park was host to the final rounds and today-May 18th-marked the first of the double-header rounds. Comp. Edge is a true motocross style track and by the end of the day’s racing it’s quite easy to see. Massive braking bumps, pot-holes and deep ruts were all beaten into the high desert track and all riders can do is navigate to the best of their abilities.

The ruts pictured here are just a taste of what is littered throughout the whole race track.

With an entire weekend of racing ahead it’s key to have the right parts and accessories to survive the long tiring days, and luckily for riders, vendor row was the supplier for everything needed. Maxxis tires made the trek up to Comp. Edge supplying every racer with fresh tires as that was a key ingredient for today. Etnies also headed up to keep everyone excited about their new line of shoes, while BTO Sports had some hard parts like tire-tubes, goggles and BTO Sports branded canopies for sale. ODI Grips was supplying racers with some of their revolutionary CFT bars in case a rider took a spill and was in need of some new controls, and Thousand Oaks Yamaha was kind enough to bring out their rider support rig to assist all Yamaha riders with technical support and parts.

The BTO Sports crew had everyone covered… Literally! Not only were they selling bike parts and gear, but they were also selling BTO Sports branded canopies like the one pictured above.

When it came time for the gate to drop, it was game on. And since tomorrow-May 19th-is the final round, tons of amazing awards will be given out to the top riders in each class; so, needless to say, nobody was holding back. Nick Sanchez, a relative newcomer to the series, opened everybody’s eyes today by showcasing his lightning-fast speed in his respected pro classes. Sanchez absolutely dominated both 450A and Pro open. Cody Baker, aboard his KTM, was another to keep everybody on the edge of their seats. Baker not only swept Open (non-pro), but he also took the overall in 450B with a 2-1 finish. In Schoolboy thru 17 and 250B, Jeremy Byrne of Oak Hills, CA was the man to beat. Byrne finished the day with overall finishes in both classes and had great battles with leaders of other classes.

Nick Sanchez and his Yamaha handled business. Sanchez was one of the top dogs in his respected pro classes, who not only won both 450A, but Pro open as well.

Cody Baker was another top dog of the day. Baker swept Open (non-pro) for the overall and finished with a 2-1 in 450B for another win.

Here, Jeremy Byrne seat bounces a jump on his way to a 1-1 finish in 250B. Byrne also took home the “W” in Schoolboy thru 17.

The racing today was absolutely stacked and we hope you can join us tomorrow-May 19th-for the sixth and final round of the TWMXRS So-Cal Spring Cup. For even more action from round five, check out the photos below.
