The Second Annual TransWorld Motocross Mini Major took place last weekend at Milestone Mx Park, and like last year’s inaugural event it was a success for everyone involved. The Colton, CA facility’s main track underwent a few changes to accommodate this particular crowd of racers, as it ventured onto the vet track and through a split-lane section before returning to the main track making for another unique challenge. Over 600 entries were slate to do battle over the course of the three day event, and every class featured a three-moto format. Motocross appears to have a bright future, as we witnessed a lot of noteworthy talent, and we’re happy to provide an outlet for these young up and coming stars.
