Root River Racing’s South of the Border Pro ATV Report
Root River Racing Pro ATV MX Race Report

La Crosse, WI (4/2/2018) - Root River Racing’s Pro ATV Motocross rider Dylan Tremellen overcame visibility problems to finish 14th overall in the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship race at South of the Border MX in Hamer, SC.

Tremellen had issues in qualifying that limited his gate pick in the motos. In the first moto, he came out third, but got punted off the track and restarted 15th. With limited passing opportunities on the dirt-bike track, Tremellen made it back to 11th.

In the second moto, Tremellen used his RAGE ATV engine combined with Hoosier Tires and Motowoz shocks to get a fast start, but again got hemmed in by several other riders at the start. He finished 14th.

“In the first moto, I was about third at the start, but got knocked off the track,” explained Tremellen. “I went from 15th to 11th. In the second moto, I got bunched up in the first turn and had to check up. So I again had to come from the back. I had some visibility issues, so I just tried to ride safe. I’ll be training for the next three weeks to get ready for Texas. I’ll be ready to go.

Outfitted in custom Canvas MX gear, with EKS goggles, and Deft Family gloves, Tremellen also has several new components on his Honda. This year his ride features a JB Lowering Kit, Beringer Brakes and Precision handlebar clamps, and his helmet, bike and trailer are stickered up in FTR decals.

The big game changer for Tremellen this year is the RAGE engine. He said it’s only a matter of time before they get the combination right and start snagging holeshots.

Tremellen and the rest of the Root River team will return to action April 14-15 at Underground MX in Kemp, TX.
