Baron Wins WORCS ATV Round 1
With a promising start to the 2012 season, Beau Baron won Round 1 of the WORCS ATV series, held January 20-22 in Devore, California. Baron was joined on the podium by his Maxxis/H&M Motorsports teammate Davi Haagsma, who took third place. Maxxis began the race in a strong position when Haagsma grabbed the holeshot.
Baron, who raced despite a serious wrist injury sustained the previous weekend, gained the lead in the second lap. He later battled another rider for the front spot, but retook first place in time to clinch his victory. Both riders trusted the Maxxis Razr Xc in the rear and the Razr 2 in front. Round 1 was Baron’s first race on the Razr Xc, and he was pleased by their performance: “The best thing about them is the forward traction. Like when you are exiting turns, once you are straight and off a slide, the forward bite is phenomenal.”
Also riding Maxxis was Michael Cafro, who took fifth place in the Pro class. Keith Johnson took the Pro Am victory on the Razr Xc in both front and rear.
Ryan Piplic won the Side x Side Production class, with Baron in fifth place. Maxxis congratulates Beau Baron, Keith Johnson and Ryan Piplic on the first of what are sure to be many victories in 2012, and thanks all of its riders for their fine performances.
