It's time to get back to racing, boys and girls! Cahuilla Creek MX Park is set to host the third stop of the TWMXRS West Coast Open this Sunday. Cahuilla Creek is hands down one of our favorite tracks here in So-Cal, and we're excited to head back to the Anza, CA facility for another exciting day of racing. Cahuilla houses one of the funnest, natural outdoor-style motocross tracks that California has to offer all thanks to it's elevation changes and unique backdrop. Strewn across a number of rolling hills, the amateur and expert tracks each feature a number of fun obstacles, but it's the challenging, yet safe jumps that puts Cahuilla on top of everyone's destination of choice for good day on a dirt bike.
It always adds to the excitement when a top professional comes out for a weekend of racing with nothing more than a pick-up truck and a practice bike, and that's exactly what happened a few years ago at Cahuilla. TLD/Lucas Oil/Honda's Jessy Nelson entered a few classes and put on a show for everyone in attendance while getting some valuable seat-time for the upcoming outdoor national series. We'd like to believe that Nelson's decision to race with the TWMXRS says a lot simply because of the caliber of racing that he's used to.
As we mentioned, it's the amazingly fun layout and jumps that keep us coming back to Cahuilla. Pictured above, Gavin Leachman sends his Yamaha Supermini over one of Cahuilla's larger jumps in route to a moto win. Gavin and his parents are a frequent sight at the TWMXRS, and for good reason. This kid's speed is exceptional! It's always a treat to see Gavin and Yamaha's Kai Aiello-another TWMXRS frequent attendee-go at it after the gate-drop because if there's any battle to watch, it's between these two.
Providing an outlet for racers of all skill-sets is a top priority of ours because everyone deserves to enjoy the thrill of racing, and that's the reason for our two-track format. Not only does it speed up the schedule allowing for some racers to be done with racing by the afternoon, but it offers the comfort of a not-so-challenging racetrack for those on the amateur track, as well. So no matter what bike your ride or what class you line up for, we hope to see you all this Sunday at Cahuilla Creek MX Park for another exciting day of racing. Gates Open at 6:30AM and practice is set to start at 8:00AM.
