2018-11-24 ??? Race Report Round 4 Amatuer SX Milestone
Round 4 of the AME Amatuer SX rolled into Milestone MX park this holiday weekend and action was packed as usual.
The star of the weekend had to be north west mini star Kayden smith who scored wins in three different classes including the 85cc 9-14 class the 85 open and the Supermini divisions.
His strongest opposition came from ASV support rider Dane Morales in the supermini race. Morales fought off numerous pass attempts from smith over the course of the seven lap main event only to be passed by smith in the final two feet of the race. smith made the pass stick by launching his ktm off an inside roller just before the finish line to edge out Morales by a knobby length.
Former AMA 51 cc champion Wyatt Thurman was put to the test in 4 different classes today. Thurman breezed to victory in both 51cc open and 65cc 7-9 classes but found the Catalina kid Jaxson Butte to be more then a handful in the 65cc open class and had to settle for a 3rd place podium position. Thurman also threw his name in the hat in the 85cc novice class. Thurman at age eight surprised the older kids with another podium in the big boy class.
Josh Varize piloted his milestone pro shop backed ktm to wins in both 250 non pro and Amatuer all star A/B classes. Although Varize kept the 250 non pro class main event win in doubt after a first turn crash the so cal kid picked himself off the ground and charged straight to the overall victory in convincing style.
