TWMXRS TERRA FIRMA SERIES | ROUND 5 | MILESTONE MX
The TWMX Terra Firma Series, presented by SPY has officially concluded for 2017 after visiting several of Southern California's most popular motocross tracks for five rounds of bar-banging action. Loads of good times and intense racing took place throughout the series, and so was the case at the series finale at Milestone MX Park.
Nearly 600 riders converged onto the Riverside County facility's grounds and among the crowd was Jacob Resetar out of Lakeside, CA. The 16 year old Novice class racer was favored to win in the "C" division, as he is no stranger to podium finishes and race wins. Resetar's day began with a successful race win in 450 Novice, but the Lakeside resident encountered a few issues during the second moto; namely the bad start. Resetar quickly began picking off rider one by one, and once the white flag came out only one rider stood between him and a clean moto sweep for the overall. Unfortunately for the #717, though, time ran short in the five lap moto and he was unable to make the final pass for the win, however, he was able to rebound in 250 Novice with a moto sweep for the overall. For his efforts, Resetar was chosen for the "SPY Breakaway Rider" award. Congratulations, Jacob!
Braden O'neal earned himself several consistent race finishes along with a second moto win in 250 Intermediate, which put him at the top step of the podium with the overall. The victory was well-earned, though, as Kai Aiello and Matt Hubert kept the Chatsworth, CA resident on his toes throughout the day. O'neal then lined up for 450 Intermediate where he logged two second place finishes for second overall.
Matthew Hubert has become a frequent sight at the front of the Intermediate and Open (Non-Pro) classes over the past few months and he's experienced a lot of success as the series front-runner. Not much changed at the Terra Firma Series Finale in that aspect, as the #47 Yamaha rider enjoyed three more race wins at Milestone MX amounting in the overall in Open (Non-Pro) and a second overall in 250 Intermediate.
Open 65cc was dominated by longtime TWMXRS racer Manuel Dumais, who enjoyed several race wins at the series finale. Dumais swept both motos of 65cc Open, and even logged a third race win in 0-8 yrs 65cc to grab the overall.
It was another exciting five rounds of racing all across So.Cal, and we're jumping right back into it this Sunday for round one of the TWMXRS Fall Classic, presented by SPY. Join us at Competitive Edge MX this Sunday for the opening round of the five stop series. See ya there!
