2017 CALIFORNIA CLASSIC
Located in North San Diego County, the California Classic kicked off this past week in Pala, California. Springtime sunny California weather held out for the week making for great conditions. The Cal Classic runs on a 3 moto format, not only rewarding the fastest, but it takes consistency to put together a championship at this event.
Garrett Marchbanks was clearly on a mission this past week, winning 4 of 4 championships in all his classes! Garrett cleaned up the 250 B, 450 B, SchoolBoy 2, and Open B/C classes on his Team Green ride. In the A/Pro classes, Michael Mosiman was on a blistering fast pace, though a couple miscues left him out of contention for a good overall finish, even though the speed was crystal clear as he leads into his professional debut at Hangtown in May. Eldest of the Mosiman brothers was on hand as well to claim a podium spot in the Open Pro class, along with Brazilian Enzo Lopes consistently finishing within the top 5. Tristan Miller was aboard his 500cc beast for the FMF 2-Stroke Challenge. Headed into the last moto with 1-1 scores, Tristan had a small mistake in a corner and handed over the gold for silver, taking home 2nd place overall. In the SuperMini classes, Jeremy Ryan and Levi Kitchen were both chasing down podium positions over the 4 days of racing. 65cc pilot Enzo Temmerman won 3 motos in the 65cc (7-9) mod and limited classes, ultimately earning himself 2 second place trophies in each class. In the older 65cc (10-11) classes, Preston Boespflug traveled from the Pacific Northwest to battle for 4 podium finishes spread between his three 65cc classes he entered. The Cal Classic also marks round 3 of the Women’s Pro Motocross series, where 2 time champion Kylie Fasnacht was on the gas winning both motos. Kylie is leading the WMX Series points as she pushed forward with her sights set on a 3rd straight WMX championship.
Congratulations to all competitors, and a big thanks to the 2X Promotions crew for a great event, and thanks to the Pala Tribe for the use of their land.
