Cycle Ranch event a success
FLORESVILLE -- Cycle Ranch MX was pleased to host the annual AMA USA Motocross Championships Pro AM Nov. 28 through Dec. 1. With lots of racing on hand, and a $10,000 purse on the line, plenty of pros and amateurs alike lined up to race the motocross- and supercross-style formatted races.
To start the weekend, Cycle Ranch held open practice on Thanksgiving Day for all racers, and then hosted a Thanksgiving dinner for all who attended as a sign of gratitude. All amateurs got a piece of the motocross and supercross format Friday, as they raced their first moto on the outdoor track in the morning. Later that evening, participants raced another moto on the illustrious night track built by Dream Traxx.
Saturday showcased a day filled with amateur racing, as well as the Pro class that battled for the $10,000 purse. Pro classes raced 20-minute motos plus two laps that proved to be a battle until the end each time. Riders lined up in both Pro Classes (250cc and 450cc) on the day track, and battled until the very end. Only two riders came out on top with overalls, however, and they were San Antonio native Kyle Swanson and Mitchell Oldenburg of Decatur.
Supercross style racing in the evening proved to be a success, as well. Friday night was qualifying for all amateurs, making Saturday the night to establish their name. Amateurs battled their hearts out for overalls, and with such a good turnout, it proved to be a night full of highlights. Plenty of A-class riders showed as well, even after a long day of 25-minute motos on the day track. Dylan Kirchner and Robert Adcock took the top spots of the night for a huge purse at Cycle Ranch.
The USA MX Championships Pro AM turned out to be a great Thanksgiving weekend full of exhilarating action. Cycle Ranch would like to send out a huge “Thank You” to everyone that went out and attended the event.
“We couldn’t do it without all of you.”
