Ashton Hammill made a quick trip up to South of the Border to shoot with the Infinite rippa’s that seem to always be there ready to shred. Enjoy the short 3 part video of some of the best talent in the industry.


There is nothing more gratifying than having a rider on the podium at Loretta Lynn’s, thank you for helping them prepare.  South of the Border Motocross Training Complex got plenty of thanks at the recently concluded Rocky Mountain MC/ATV AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships.  SOBMX riders had 56 total top ten moto finishes including sixteen top fives,  ten podiums, and twelve moto wins!  These moto finishes led to twenty-four top ten overalls including seven podium finishes and three national championships.

Jett Reynolds led the way in the youth classes with 6 moto wins in the 85cc 9-11 classes and two championships.  Jett was followed by Caden Braswell with two second place scores.

Jett Reynolds 6 moto wins!

Nick Romano, Jordan Jarvis, Moon Gerrits, Brock Papi and Jamie Astudillo joined the podium parade as well.  Romano captured second overall in the 65cc 7-9 class and backed it up with fourth in the 65cc 7-11.  Jordan Jarvis finished a strong second in the Girls  12-16 and was first in two out of the three motos in the Women’s class, a broken throttle cable in moto one keeping her off the overall podium.  Astudillo was third in all three motos of the Girls 12-16 for an overall of third.  Gerrits made the most of awesome starts to capture second overall in the 50cc 7-8 class.   Papi competed for moto wins while carding a third overall in Schoolboy 1.

Brandon Hartranft won his first moto at Loretta’s and followed it up with three more wins in the 450B classes.  Brandon scored his first national championship in 450B Limited and backed it up with a fifth overall in the 450B mod.

Katie Benson, Austin Kapoukranidas, Jake Impens, and Scott Sheak all had top five finishes.  Benson was fourth in the Girls 9-13, Impens fourth in 450B, Austin 5th in 85cc 9-11 and Sheak finished up fourth overall in the +35.

Hunter Layton, Shelby Benson, Maggie Gerrits, Cody McCulloch, Jason Bryant and Hogan Mims were all top ten overall finishers.

From all of us at SOBMX, a huge thank you to all who raced with us last weekend! Nearly six-hundred motocross riders from seven countries and 24 states converged on the South of the Border Motocross Training Complex in Hamer, SC last weekend for the South Youth Regional Motocross Championships. At stake were ninety-four “Golden Tickets” to the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships at Loretta Lynn’s ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.


Riders from the ages of four to seventeen competed in nineteen classes at the event and the racing was fierce in all of the motos! Emile Lacher was the star in the youngest classes winning five out of six motos en route to regional championships in the 50cc 4-6 Special Limited and the 50cc 4-6 Limited classes. Georgia’s Crockett Myers won the 7-11 and 9-11 65cc classes while Matti Jorgenson swept the motos in 65cc 7-9. Louisiana rider Matt LeBlanc led nearly every lap of each of the six motos in the 85cc 9-11 classes and also scored a couple of seconds in the 65 classes. Devon Stodart was tops in the Mini Senior 1 class and Josh Gibbs captured the win in Senior Mini 2. TJ Rios dominated the second and third motos in Supermini 1 to take home the win while Luke Neese was the most consistent rider in Supermini 2, taking home the first regional championship of his career.

Caleb Carter piloted his KTM to the win in the first big bike class of the day, Schoolboy 1. Limited to 125 two stroke machines, this class produced some of the best racing of the day as Carter had his hands full with Austin Smith and Buddy Herring. In the fastest class of the day, Schoolboy 2, riders on 250 four-stroke machines saw Florida’s Jordan Bailey win all three motos to take the win. Ramyller Alves, Brock Papi and Jake Pinhancos were all in the mix but couldn’t quite catch the sunshine state rider. A huge thanks to all of our vendors including Jeff Cernic / Dunlop, Cobra Motorcycles, Defiance, Sampson’s Cycles, Triangle Cycles, Amsoil, and Kawasaki. An even bigger thanks to our partners at Victory Sports! Sam, Jane and the entire crew proved once again why they are the best motocross promoters in the business.
