The first ever GMA MotoX Relay Race was a huge success at Ta' Xhajma Motocross Track!
16 participants took part in the main event of the day - the relay race. The participants were divided into 4 groups, each group with 4 riders. The riders, ranging from Class A to Class D where chosen by ballot.
The relay raced kicked off the first rider from each group leaving the starting gate and doing 5 laps around the track. In the meantime, the second rider from each group toke place at the starting gate. Once a rider finished the 5 laps, he tagged the second rider with the latter starting his own round of 5 laps. This repeated until all riders from each group completed all the laps. The rider who managed to cross the finish line first would go on and win the relay race, ultimately crowing the group he was in, winner. Team members did their very utmost to not let their team down !
