REM GLEN HELEN RACE REPORT: WHAT THOSE CRAZY KIDS IN SOCAL ARE DOING
Sean Lipanovich (505) would win both motos of the 450 Pro class, but when he got his rear wheel on one side of this berm and his front wheel on the opposite side, he had to wonder what was going to happen next. He did swap, but saved it.

Glen Helen was a busy place this past weekend—not only was REM racing on Saturday, but so was the SoCal Classic Vintage race and the AMA National Endurocross Championship. Luckily, Glen Helen had enough race tracks to handle the overflow crowd that packed every square inch to the park
REM unveiled a new track design, using some of the old track, some of forgotten parts of ancient tracks and some new ideas. The result was a racetrack that every rider found fun and challenging. As you woud expect from REM there were more technical sections, off-cambers and up-and-down rolling sections.
The cool weather was great for the kids, young and old. What follows is a photo essay of who was who at REM on Saturday.
If these two guys aren’t together at the start of a race, they will be by the end. Jody Weisel (54) and Lars Larsson (58) don’t care if they win or lose — only that they beat each other. You can tell they’ve been racing for a long time by their matching leather boots.
