Report - WORCS Round #5 & ITP Round #4
WORCS Round #5: (6-7-09): Toutle, Wa - Motowork’s/Can-AM’s WORCS team arrived in Toutle, Wa, about
70 miles north of the Oregon border to take on
Rnd #5 of the 2009 World Off-road Championship
Series. With the absence of team captain
Josh Frederick due to injury, last years
teammate and this years MX boy Brandon Smith
would sit in and make a cameo for the 2009 WORCS
series. Also attending was the ever fast
and upcoming Jeremie Warnia (War-knee-eh), as
press guy for Motoworks, I finally have it down.
Warnia was blistering fast as usual but had
problems getting used to the trees, but finished
a very respectable 2nd place on the day.
Meanwhile, Smith rode well too. He got tangled
off the start with Polaris’s Doug Eichner, but
remounted and climbed back. Soon after
Brandon would suffer shock problems and then
drew the black flag for entering hot pits
backwards. Smith was disappointed needless
to say, but he rode strong and we look to see
him again in the series. Dillon Zimmerman would
take his first 2nd place in the Pro-Am.
Look for Dillon to come back strong at
‘This weekend was better for us, thats for sure.
With Josh out, these guys are showing heart and
keeping consistent. Jeremie rode really well,
Brandon just had a mishap, he’s been racing MX
and dealt with an off-road rule this week that
set him back with the hot pit rule. Dillon
was riding excellent, but had to settle for 2nd
after a pit stop that cost him a position.
It was nothing on our end, Davi just rode well
and those two are doing some serious battle.” Ty

ITP Round #4: (6-13-09): Surprise, Az -
Motoworks had another frustrating weekend at
ITP. While Jeremie Warnia rode well to a 3rd
O/A, teammate and Production Exp rider- Dillon
Zimmerman suffered major injuries following a
horrific crash during the Saturday program.
A complete press release will follow soon.
Congratulations to Jeremie Warnia for staying in
the points and giving Motoworks another ITP
podium this past weekend.
