Adam Ford (38), Dylan Mroz (62) and Dan Alamangos head down to the flat part of the REM track where the Arroyo starting gate used to be. Photo: F-Stop Fitzgerald With the World Vet Motocross Championship behind them, the REM regulars were glad to return to their ancestral hillside track high above the Glen Helen AMA National track. In fact the REM track was actually the first racetrack built at Glen Helen. That was back in the 1970s when it was known as Arroyo Cycle Park?which was the site of the first-…

Photos by Dan Alam angos and Ernie Becker Kid s, don’t try this at home. Justin Jones (42) can’t always get his long legs through every corner. Sometimes he has to stick them out of the way.

Nope, it was incredibly rough…and this from a track that pushes roughness to the highest degree. The REM track i…

2012 MTA WORLD TWO-STROKE CHAMPIONSHIP PHOTO GALLERY

Michael Leib won both motos on a 2002 Honda CR250 sponsored by Race SoCal. 2011 World Two-Stroke Champion Austin Howell wanted to back up his rep as the fastest two-smoke rider in the country, but it was not to be.

At this week’s post-Thanksgiving motocross race?the weather was both hot and windy at the same time. 450 Pro Mark Tilley.
