Maxxis’ Beau Baron Wins Pro Class at WORCS Round 4
Team Maxxis/H&M rider Beau Baron took his second Pro victory of the year at WORCS ATV Round 4. The race was held April 15 in Surprise, Arizona.
Baron’s teammate David Haagsma grabbed the holeshot and held the lead through the first half of the race. Baron, who was seventh at the first turn, made steady progress throughout the event. By the last 20 minutes, he was locked in a tight battle, trading the lead with another rider before crossing the finish line in first place.
Both Baron and Haagsma trusted the Razr Xc rear and the Razr 2 front to take them to the WORCS podium. “The track was super high-speed with lots of little chops. There were little craters here and there, just blown out, so you’re skipping across the top all over the place,” said Baron. “The best thing about our tires was that they were good from the first lap to the last. Other people’s tires were totally worn. Ours were still in good shape when I looked down at them from the podium.”
Haagsma joined Baron on the Pro podium in third place, and Baron and Haagsma are second and third in WORCS season points. Baron also made a podium appearance in the SxS1000 Production class, taking third place on Maxxis Vipr tires just behind fellow Maxxis rider Ryan Piplic. Piplic and Baron are also second and third in points for the class.
Maxxis congratulates Beau Baron on his victory and thanks David Haagsma and Ryan Piplic for their fine performances.
