Geerdts takes 1st
despite a tough spill
50 cc state motocross champion Diesel Geerdts takes a hard spill on turn two at the Fairbanks track last weekend after a poor start on his first moto. Diesel did pick himself up and go on to 1st place. Despite a muddy track and hard competition, he swept the 50 cc class with four more wins. Diesel also rode the 65 cc class claiming a 1st, 3rd, 3rd, and 2nd place finishes. He is the son of Bethel residents Courtney and Heidi Geerdts. Next state race will be in Kenai.
