The first TWMXRS event of 2018 is in the books, as round one of the El Dorado series took place at iconic Glen Helen Raceway this past Sunday. With nearly a month since the last TWMX race, we were eager as ever to get the 2018 race season started. Just days before racing kicked off, Southern California was welcomed with the first rain storm of the new year, which made for some excellent track conditions at Glen Helen. As the San Bernardino facility's gate opened Sunday morning, nearly 500 racers funneled through and prepared to go racing. We were pleased to welcome a total of 150 new members to the TWMXRS on Sunday, and we look forward to a great series and 2018 season.
Thanks to the talented turnout at round one of the El' Dorado series, there were many eye-catching rides. However, TWMXRS regular Kai Aiello had arguably the most dominating race day. The Temecula, CA resident took the win in each and every race he lined up for, which left him with six moto wins and three class sweeps. To go along with Kai's pure dominance, the intermediate racer ran the same pace as the pros throughout the day, as both classes left on the same gate.
As the first motos kicked off, Jeremy Fappani lined the gates in a majority of both the 65cc and 85cc classes. The youngster out of Scottsdale, Arizona dominated aboard his Blue Star racing KTM 65cc, ultimately taking home the overall win in both the Open 65cc and 9-11 years 65cc classes. However, Jeremy's consitancy didn’t stop there as he finished in the top-three in both of his 0-11 years 85/150F motos and walked away with a solid second place overall.
As for the pros, Jeremy McCool was the one to beat in the Pro 450F class. Although receiving some pressure from Richard Taylor, Jeremy was able to stay focused and get the job done. The ripper out of 29 Palms ended up with two moto wins and a first place overall on the day.
We would like to thank all of our new sponsors and all of the TWMXRS racers for a great first race of the 2018 season! We hope to see you all on the 28th at Milestone MX for round two of the El Dorado series.
