Can-Am ATV Pro Josh Frederick Takes WORCS Round Two
Valcourt, Québec, March 2, 2010 – Team Motoworks / Can-Am® DS 450™ pilot Josh Frederick narrowly missed taking the WORCS round-one and was determined to make up for it. During the weeks between the race,
Frederick trained harder and the team changed some suspension settings.
It worked. Round two saw Frederick battle to the front during the race
and once he had the lead, he didn't look back. Frederick won the race
by almost a minute on second place; he is now tied for the points lead.
"Even though it is only round two, Team Motoworks already has a championship-battle mentality," says Jimmie O'Dell, Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs at BRP. "Everyone is committed to giving each of the team riders a chance at championships this season; they are focused on putting the DS 450 at the top."
Fredericks teammate and fellow Pro-class rider, Dillon Zimmerman, had the class holeshot at the start and was able to power his DS 450 to fifth in the class.
The next round in the WORCS championship is March 26-27 at Lake Havasu, Arizona. For

“It felt good to be back on top of the podium. We were working with a new suspension set up and it worked incredibly well. I kind of paced myself until about the midway point and then I started to push it. I passed a couple of people and then caught up to the leader and I got around him." — Josh Fredrick
"It was a dead engine start and my bike fired right up and I was able to take my first Pro-class holeshot! I went out there and just rode my own race and I was able to finish in the top five." — Dillon Zimmerman
