Landon Hurst Podiums at Pismo
Landon Hurst piloted his Outlaw 450MXR to a
second place Pro finish at the famous Pismo
Beach Race, at Oceano Dunes, in Pismo Beach,
Calif., on October 12. Endurance riding in the
sand, which gets rougher and rougher and more
whooped-out during the race, puts both the rider
and the machine through a work out during this
Hurst pulled the holeshot on his 2008 Outlaw
450MXR, and with a roost of sand, he was gone.
"My Outlaw was so strong in the rough sections,
the FOX suspension was dialed, and my B&B Motor
pulled hard through the power-robbing sand,"
said Hurst. He continued his flawless ride until
lap number four, which he had to pit for fuel.
"I knew I had to stop for fuel and didn't want
to take the chance of running dry, it was tough
to watch my lead evaporate while I was pitted."
With fuel in the tank, Hurst jumped at the
opportunity to gain the lead while the leader
was at fuel stop. Hurst led until the last fuel
stop where he swap spots with the leader and
finished a strong second.
Hurst will tackle the Competitive Edge MX
Park track, in Hesperia, Calif., for the
ITP QuadCross, on October 19.
