MOTOCROSS TAKES BREATH AWAY

One of the exciting event of 69th Araw ng Compostela and 11th Buganihan Festival happened not on the municipal ground but on the race track.
Customized to host the death-defying, breath-taking daredevils from around the country, the Motocross Exhibition was proven to be one of the most exciting event hosted.
Developed along the open field, adjacent to the national highway, beside a barangay cemetery, the race track venue is partly-owned by the host Punong Barangay of Maparat, Compostela, Compostela Valley Kap Eling Luzano and the LGU of Compostela.
Under the unending heat of the day's unrelenting sun, riders and expectators alike expressed exhilarating joy, elation and enthusiasm just to prove that motocross, while extreme and unusual, was indeed a sport anyone can like and love.
By the thousands in attendance, it was absolutely a great justification to roar and scream, "Compostela Love Ko...Padayon sa Paglambo".
