Maxxi’s Haagsma Wins WORCS R1
Team Maxxis/H&M’s David Haagsma topped the podium at the WORCS ATV season kick-off, while teammate Beau Baron took third place at the race, held January 26-27 in Peoria, Arizona.
Riding through thick mud for the entire race, Haagsma took the lead with a pass at the end of the 13th lap. He held the front spot through to the finish line, and took first place with a seven-second margin of victory. Baron, who sparred with another rider for the third place spot for much of the event, scored the fastest Pro lap time of the race at 6:29.113 minutes. Both Haagsma and Baron trusted Razr Xc rears and Razr2 fronts for Round 1, and the tires were more than a match for the sloppy conditions. “It rained a lot,” said Haagsma. “We had a mud race, and I had a horrible start, but my tires got me all the way back up to the front, and I took first!”
The Pro contest wasn’t Baron’s only shot at a Round 1 podium: he also took first place in the Side x Side Pro Production race on 27” Vipr tires. In the Pro Am ATV class, Maxxis rider Grant Mitchell took second place.
Maxxis congratulates David Haagsma and Beau Baron on their victories, and thanks them for their outstanding performances.
