Ageless Aguilar nears crown

BIKE icon Glenn Aguilar exploited the absence of the injured Bornok Mangosong to rule the fourth and penultimate leg of the 2016 Diamond Motor Motocross Series before a wildly-cheering crowd at Mx Messiah Fairgrounds in Taytay, Rizal.

The 41-year-old, 16-time Rider of the Year used a blistering start to rout the field in the Moto 1 and Moto 2 of the Pro Open Production to virtually crown himself overall champion. Only one leg remains in the series which attracted the country’s leading and future motocross stars.

But despite winning three of the last four legs, Aguilar vowed not to take it easy in the final leg slated June.

“My only concern is a DNF (Did Not Finish) scenario. I’m sure others will go all-out to win the final leg and I’ll be ready for the challenge,” said Aguilar, who said he practiced his starts doubly hard before the series.
