Veteran motocross rider Glenn Aguilar dominated the 2016 Diamond Motor MX Series on Saturday at the MX Messiah Fairgrounds in Taytay, Rizal.
“Last night, I still feel a bit nervous because anything can happen during the last leg. Luckily, with the help of God, he gave me again this title,” Aguilar told reporters after the neck-to-neck final lap.
Aguilar topped the five-leg series, 4-1, to claim the overall title.
Brothers JC Rellosa and Enzo Rellosa finished second and third, respectively.
“In the first moto, they [Rellosa brothers] are making mistake which I can see in the latter part of the race. They are losing focus.”
“But the Rellosas are good. Its just the mindset,” added Aguilar.
The 42-year old rider said that he is still fit to compete against younger rivals.
“I can feel getting fit right now. I don’t get tired easily due to my hard training. Me and my son always do the training. It paid off. He won in the pro lites.
“I am so happy that I cannot ask for any more blessings,” said Aguilar.
Aguilar’s son, Mclean Aguilar, bagged the pro lites title by completing the Moto 1 and 2 with perfect two points.
Finishing second and third were Jepoy Rellosa (4 points) and Ompong Gabriel (8), respectively.

“Being champion makes me happy. I practiced hard to be a champion,” Reyes of Bulacan said.
In the ladies open production; Janelle Saulog bested Pia Gabriel and Mia Villalon, who finished second and third, respectively.
The 2003 Asian Championship Rider Aguilar said that he is willing to help budding riders to develop their potential in motocross.
