BCA-MX at Valley Cycle Park

April 20th 1975

Notwithstanding an offering of a $1000 cash purse at a rival off-road complex (one located in Orange County), today's BCA sanctioned program for the motocross machinery on the one and one-half mile European-style obstacle course-an event that was dishing out a 100 percent payback to the "big" boys attracted a large grouping of top Pro riders to the starting gate at Valley Cycle Park in Moorpark.  Read More...

Mike Bell was looking good this week as he rode to the win in the 125 Pro class. It looks like there is going to be a battle for first CMC rider this year, since Bill Rubly now leads in points Jamieson photo.

Then bad luck hits Reid and he takes a tumble. He gets back up but is never a threat to the front runners. Tim Lunde now has first with Tyer in second. Lunde begins to drop back to put Tyer into the lead and move Chuck Lunde into second. Mike Bell, CMC No. one, came from the middle of the pack to pass Turner and Chuck Lunde and is now in second. Tyer and Bell are having a good fight for first and Bell slips by. Read More...

It was just one of those nights for many people out at the Dunes. It was an odd night. There was a new RM-125 Suzuki being raced in the beginner class; there was a new '76 Maico 400 out. And both these bikes were total eye catchers. But besides that, nobody, I mean NOBODY really had any luck but Warren Reid. This up and coining 125 Expert put it all together. As far as the Expert classes, Warren was the only rider able to string together two wins to take all the cash. But he didn't have it easy. No way! In fact, from the start of moto two it looked like C.H. Industries' Ray Lopez would take home all the cash since he had a second in the first moto and Warren had a first.  Read More...

Starters MC at Santa Barbara Airport

The Starters MC gave everybody a break last Sunday by having a race at a different track. Reactions to the track were varied. Many liked it, others didn't. The reason might have been because it was a tough track. Many tracks stay smooth all day and racers call it moto -cross. But up here, the track has many assorted bumps, jumps, and tight turns making a good motocross track. Their track really tested the ability of many riders, as the 20 minute motos tired the best of them. Even as far as it was, all the district racers came out to do battle on this black soiled track. Not to be repetitive, but the Women's division was again one of the best of the lay. Just before their first moto the track was watered. So before their moto, the girls were allowed one lap of practice.  Read More...
