  • BATTLE BORN MX: SPRING FINALE

    Battle Born MX

    A bit under the weather on Monday so this was slightly delayed. FERNLEY (June 11) – The final round of the Battle Born MX spring series was highlighted with rain and wind.

After starting on the main straight the riders went up the hill, down the ski jump and headed for the rocks, but unlike Ultra 4, they

    FERNLEY (May 28) – A Memorial Day weekend tradition is the annual Over The Hill Gang National race at the Sandbox, or the Fernley-Wadsworth Lions Club Motocross Track.

And once again the hosts was the local OTHG chapter. Scoring is kind of like golf as a rider’s finish in a moto gives them the number, which is added up after all four have been run. There are two motos each day. Looking over the final
