Tallassee, AL (6/11/2016) - The sixth round of the 2016 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship was held at Monster Mountain MX Park in Tallassee, AL June 4-5.

Monster Mountain was a brand new track added to the series this season and the change seemed to suit most all riders. The track was fast and wide open, providing great racing across all classes. The weekend started off with a hot, humid practice session on Friday and first motos started on Saturday, which was mostly dry. The rain came in heavy for Sunday causing the second motos to be cancelled, so the weekend was run as a one moto format.

The fastest amateur riders of all competed in the Pro Sport class, where Cole Sepesi captured a first place finish. Sepesi led every lap and crossed the checkered flag with a comfortable eight second gap on second place. Sepesi is the frontrunner for the national championship title, leading the class by 31 points.

In second place was Root River Racing’s very talented rider, Dylan Tremellen.“The track was really fun with a lot of different lines. I came out of the holeshot second behind Cole Sepesi and pretty much stayed there for the whole race. I am chipping away at the points in fourth and not too far out of reach, so we are getting there,” said Tremellen.

Rounding out the Pro Sport podium in third was another Root River Racing team member, Haeydn Mickelson. “I managed to take third off the start and held my ground there. It was pretty cool Dylan and I were battling almost the entire race. I got beside him a couple times but he shut the door on me in the corners,” explained Mickelson.
