Maxxis’ Haagsma Wins QuadX Opener
Team Maxxis/H&M’s David Haagsma won the overall at the kick-off of the Yamaha QuadX season, held March 17 in San Bernardino, California. Teammate Beau Baron took second place for the day.
Baron took the holeshot and the victory in the first moto, with defending 450 Production Pro champion Haagsma in second place. Despite a stall caused by a sharp turn which pushed him back to fourth place at one point, Haagsma still nabbed a spot on the podium. In the second moto, it was Haagsma who grabbed the holeshot, going on to win by a comfortable margin. Baron took second place, rallying after a stall on the same turn that had caused trouble for Haagsma in the previous race.
Haagsma was pleased with the performance of his Maxxis tires. “We ran the Maxxis [Razr] Xm tires on all four corners of our bikes, and they did a great job once again today,” he said. “The track was rough, sandy, dry, slick, and deep, so it had a variety of conditions, and the tires worked perfect everywhere, and also got me the pro holeshot award.”
Maxxis congratulates David Haagsma on the first of what are sure to be many victories this QuadX season, and thanks Beau Baron for his outstanding performance.
