Irvine, Calif. – Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green™ converged in the beautiful resort town of Mammoth Lakes, Calif., for the Monster Energy Mammoth MX which ran from June 16-26. This unparalleled event is located at more than 8,000 feet above sea level, and nestled high in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains, presented riders and fans alike with an experience unmatched by any other motocross event in the nation. After ten days of intense competition, Team Green riders emerged with eight championships, five second-place finishes, and three third-place finishes. Surrounded by breath-taking views of snow-capped mountains, the unique motocross track wraps through the beautiful Inyo National Forest almost like a natural roller-coaster. Racers of all types and sizes showed up throughout the week to put their skills to the test on the challenging track. Team Green’s amateur racers got the week started racing their mini-bikes on Tuesday and the event finished up with the nation’s top professionals competing in a range of classes from 2-stroke bikes to 450cc four-stroke machines.
The Green Ninja
Justin Hill came up to Mammoth and let nothing keep him off the podium. He raced back-to-back main events to secure championships in both the Open Intermediate and Schoolboy classes after 14-consecutive hot laps on Friday. On Sunday, Hill destroyed the competition on his KX™450F, winning the 450 Intermediate class by over 16 seconds. Over the course of the event, Hill diced the track like a ninja, throwing down lap times that rivaled the top pros. His ability to find the fastest lines and maintain his momentum throughout the track made him the winningest Team Green rider of the event. He left the event with three championship bear trophies and a smile that stretched from ear to ear.
