This past weekend marked the inaugural running of the 125 Dream Race Series at Hangtown MX. It was a packed field of past champions and also new up and coming riders who wanted to test their speed while all aboard 125cc motorcycles. The series will consist of six qualifying events and the grand finale will be held at Ironman MX in Crawfordsville Indiana in late August.
The riders received a quick practice on Friday afternoon to tune in their bikes and get a feel for the track. The standouts in that practice were Answer Racings own Ryan Villopoto, Aiden Tijero and Mike Sleeter along with some past SX/MX riders Wil Hahn and Jimmy Albertson. The stage was set for an epic battle come Saturday morning.
It was a beautiful morning for the opening round of the AMA outdoor national championship as the temperature was cool and the track was freshly prepped for the day’s races. After the morning session of 250 and 450 practices it was time for the 125’s to hit the track. All the riders received a quick 10 minute practice and then took a quick break to top off their fuel, grab and drink and then it was back down to the starting line for the final four lap race.
