Megacross Round 6!

This past weekend kicked off another great round of Megacross as August is already upon us.  The summer certainly does fly by right along with the racing.  Tonight had some great battles as always with a great turn out. Ross Martin was out at the track along with Travis Sewell on a break from the nationals.  The new back section of the track was all tweaked and ready to go making things interesting for everyone as the lights kicked on and the races got underway.

Megacross Race Report

 

Saturday the 17th of July Megacross kicked off round 5 of some great District 17 racing.   The track has been changed around a bit since everyone was here last mainly in the back section.  Some off camber jumps were added, some whoop replaced with a table top and some of the tabletops stretched out a bit made more for some great additions to an already great facility.  The racing was great as ever with Travis Sewell making an appearance with a break in the nationals this weekend certainly spiced things up as well.

Megacross Round 2!

This past Saturday started off Megacross round 2.  The weather was terrible all week, and today was no exception with rain plaguing the area.  On my way to the track it was raining out, but not terribly bad and Megacross doesnt close down for some sprinkles.  Opon arrival the track was looking mint, it wasnt muddy at all, just needed to wait the rain out for a little bit and races were on.  Just walking across the track I could tell it was in perfect shape, and talking to some of the riders confirmed it.  It was great night of racing with Kyle White back for his first race from his broken leg in the last round of Arenacross to give Maxx Malatia a run for his money.

Megacross Underway! 

Chase Sexton

After the weather shutting down the first attempt for Megacross round 1, tonight May 11th it was on! The weather again being a bit of an issue with a lot of wind during the day that did eventually die down. Right along side that was some nice cold weather, which I'm sure I'll be missing when its 100 degrees outside. The attendance was huge tonight with every class packed with riders ready to get Megacross underway! Coming along with that was some great battles out there as the action moved on through-out the evening.

A Trip to Megacross - Photo Report

The past weekend I made my way out to Megacross in Mendota IL to shoot some photos.  This was my first time out at the track and it was a really nice setup.  Lots of big jumps, some tighter sections to make things interesting and an overall fast moving track.  The classes were packing into the gates coming out 15-20 wide and made for several rather bad incidences off the line.  The quads were out in full force as well, blitzing around the track making some great action for everyone.   I was only there to shoot photos this weekend so I dont have a race report to type up, but please enjoy some shots from the evening!
