Round two of the 2018 TWMXRS El Dorado series went down this past weekend and held some exciting moments. As the sun rose Sunday morning, over 600 riders filtered through the gates of Milestone MX Park for an action-packed day of racing. Although we weren’t gifted with a perfect weather forecast, the crew at Milestone managed to keep water on the track and allow the racing to continue. With plenty of full gates and a fast course, round two of the El Dorado series proved to be just as exciting as the first.
With a total of 604 racer entries, there seemed to be plenty of stacked classes full of talent. We have not seen as many riders in the Pro 450F class in quite some time, which made it one of the most exciting races of the day. Among the twelve Pro 450F racers was 11-time Japan MX Champion Akira Narita. Though Akira wasn’t able to grab the win in the Pro 450F class, the icon dominated the 30+ Pro class and finished each moto with a respectable gap on the rest of the field.
As for Akira Narita's competition, Caleb Tennant was the one to beat in both the Pro 450F and Pro Open (125-450) classes. Even when faced with a bad start, the professional racer out of South Africa managed to work his way through the pack and snag four moto wins. However, We were not surprised by Caleb's speed, as he is a four-time champion in South Africa. With two overall wins and a first place in each moto he raced, you could say Caleb Tennant had one of the most dominating race days.
TWMXRS regular, Dylan Gaszak, joined us at Milestone and put on a commanding ride in each class he raced. Although Dylan is known to be a regular at the races, we hadn’t seen him lined up in quite some time due to him breaking his back. With having suffered such a serious injury, we were happy to see Dylan back on his bike and already up to speed. The kid out of Lakeside, CA was the rider to beat in both the SchoolBoy and Intermediate 250F classes, ultimately taking home four moto wins and two overalls.
