Bonsall, CA – MCR/Maxxis Tire’s Beau Baron put in an impressive run at round number five of the 2011 WORCS series to claim second place on the Pro podium, while David Haagsma grabbed the pro holeshot and hung on for fourth, and Julie Russell again dominated the Women’s A class, taking her fourth straight win of the season.

Dusty conditions were on hand at Clay Peaks MX in Payette, ID but MCR/Maxxis Tire’s Beau Baron wasn’t going to let that stop him from getting to the podium.

Baron was in fifth off the start and quickly made his way into third by the end of the first lap. In the second lap, Baron caught a break when he came into the WORCS-X section to find Josh Frederick and Dustin Nelson both hung up. “I came into that section and saw Josh was stuck, and then I looked over and saw Dustin stuck, so I was pretty stoked to be able to just move into second like that,” said Baron.

From there, Baron charged ahead and began to chase down leader Jeremie Warnia, who had over a one minute lead on Baron. Baron charged hard and laid down some incredible lap times, closing the gap by 30 seconds. Unfortunately, Baron ran out of time before reaching the checkered flag.

“I think if we would have had that extra half hour I could have caught Warnia. I was laying down faster lap times than he was in the last half of the race, so I think I could have done it,” said Baron, who is currently third in pro points.

David Haagsma was looking good as he grabbed the pro holeshot, but unfortunately for Haagsma, he lost his seat early in the first lap, causing him to fall back. Haagsma charged hard and was able to hang on for a solid fourth place finish. Haagsma is also doing well in the points chase as he is currently rounding out the top five.

“Both Beau and David did great out there this weekend. The track was really dusty and it was hard to see. I should know because I was towards the back eating everyone else’s dust,” quipped team manager, Mike Cafro.

In the Women’s A class, Julie Russell again showed why she is the reigning champ. Russell grabbed the holeshot and never looked back.

Russell led from start to finish, recording the fastest lap time of her class in lap two with a time of 12:22.333. Russell stayed consistent and pulled away to take the Women’s A win by over five and a half minutes ahead of second place.

The MCR/Maxxis team will be training hard over the next several weeks before heading to Washougal, WA on August 20th – 21st where Beau Baron and Julie Russell will both be looking for the win.
