Maxxis Pros Wienen and Baron Take Weekend Wins

Chad Wienen and Beau Baron each topped pro podiums over the weekend, with Wienen taking the ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) Series win and Baron taking a WORCS victory. Round 4 of the ATVMX series was held May 11 in Rossville, Indiana, and WORCS Round 5 was held May 12 in Taft, California.

Wienen took third place in the first moto despite a bad start, with teammate Thomas Brown in fourth. Brown grabbed his first-ever holeshot in the second moto, with Wienen assuming the lead by the end of the first lap. Brown took fourth place in the second moto. Wienen said that his Maxxis Orange-Label Razr MX rears and Razr Cross fronts came through for him: “The tires were working really good. There was a lot of traction out there with the rain a couple days before, and we made some tire pressure adjustments for that. The tires were breaking loose when we wanted and hooking up when needed. That second moto start we were out front one and two and just on rails!”

Wienen and Brown took first and third place overall for the weekend and are also first and third in the series’ overall Pro standings. The weekend’s overall victory was Wienen’s second in a row.

Out West, Baron took his fourth straight win during the weekend, and as in the previous round, his teammate David Haagsma took second place. Temperatures of up to 97°, along with a rough course, challenged every racer, but the dynamic Team H&M/Maxxis duo performed in spite of these challenges, with Haagsma taking the holeshot and an early lead. Baron took the front spot in the fifth lap and held it through to the finish line. Baron trusted Razr XC rears and Razr2 fronts for the race: “The course was super hard-packed and slick. The tires were great for the course because they didn’t fade. We had no less traction toward the end of the race than at the beginning. And in sections we were sliding from dirt to asphalt and back onto dirt again, and they were super-predictable.”

Baron and Haagsma are first and second in the series’ Pro points standings. Both riders took an additional podium during the weekend as well. Haagsma won the SxS Production 700 class, and Baron earned second place in the SxS Pro Production class.

Maxxis congratulates Beau Baron and Chad Wienen on their victories and thanks Thomas Brown and David Haagsma for their fine performances as well.
