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

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
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,
then I looked over and saw Dustin stuck, so I

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

team manager, Mike Cafro.

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
