The TransWorld Motocross SLAM Festival is one of our favorite, albeit busiest weekends of the entire year. While most of the time our jobs require us to show up to events run by other people, this is one of those occasions when we have to put together every piece of the puzzle. With the help of the crew at Milestone MX Park, hundreds of riders and thousands of spectators funnel through the gates of the Southern California facility for a full day of spinning laps, talking with brands, and watching pro racers duke it out in the SLAM Pro Race. It's a massive undertaking but well worth it when we get to share the fun with friends.

Although the SLAM Festival is officially on Saturday, we get to take over Milestone MX Park on Friday for our annual Industry Cup, a special day of racing with our friends throughout the sport. All of the competitiveness that brands may harbor against each other is settled with laps on a massive track that winds through nearly every inch of the property, including the paved entry road, three of the most popular tracks, and the pit area. We've run the Industry Cup for years and with different formats, but we feel like the current "Grand Prix" style of three long motos separated by skill level (Desk Jockey, Intermediate, Pro) is the best fit because it allows people of similar speeds to race together without worry of getting involved or in the way of someone much faster or slower. Brands are asked to field three riders per team, but there are options for two-

This may be a tired statement, but man, this year's Industry Cup might be one of the best ever! The pit area was filled with teams and the long motos on the track allowed for plenty of passes, creative lines, and excitement. Once the final scores were tabulated (think Motocross of Nations scoring, with the lowest point totals determining the winner), KTM was declared the winner over constant contenders Answer Racing and 6D Helmets.

If you're one of the many involved in the business side of motocross, be sure to keep the Industry Cup in mind for 2019. We'd love to see more riders and brands join in on the day at the track!
