Triumph Motorsports Alex Races WORCS With A Staggering 4 Classes

Alex 
Alex races WORCS with a staggering 4 Classes:

Shifter open
12-15 Production
Shifter open sport
12-15 Production sport

Alex currently has overall first places in 3 of 4 of these classes. The last one he is in second 7 points down from first. These classes are not a small local racing classes. These classes can reach 18-24 entries of the fastest youth racers offered on the West Coast Anthony Martin of Triumph Motorsports says "Here at Triumph we believe these youth racers are the future of our sport. Helping these young guns are sometimes more fun to watch grow than racing myself"

"This was a hard race.  Very rocky and dusty in spots.  The water crossing was very different and I had a few issues at times. First 2 races were very clean runs other than a front tire going down in the first race. Third race was hard battling Raymond and Devin. I got to second but couldn't hold the pace and fell to third. Sundays race was not bad other then getting a flat in the first lap. I was able to hold first till the last lap when I got passed and finished 2nd."  Say's Alex

Alex's Dad Jim has both hands deep into Alex's program.  Jim -" My son is able to push himself.  I try to have the bike right for him and then it's all about Alex doing his thing. He never quits, flat tire or not. He pushes himself the whole time he is on the track.

Shifter Open: 40min - 1st place - Good race very clean run till the end when he flattened a front tire. He had about a 30sec lead till the end and was able to hold off Devin Borges and finish in first place.

12-15 Production: 50min - 1st place - Alex was second out on the start but was able to get to first before go into the off-road. He had a very clean run with only a minor issue at one of the water crossing. He was able to stretch his lead 1:17 by the finish.

Shifter Open Sport: 40min - 3rd place - This is a tough race for Alex being the 3rd of the day. He got pushed off the track at the start and was last off the start. He set a good pace and was able to work up to 2nd. He ran out of steam and slid back to 3rd for the finish. Not bad he was whooped after that one.

12-15 Production Sport: 50min - 2nd place - Alex got a good start and was pushing hard to stay out front. He had a good lead as some of the other racers had issue early in the race. Alex had cut a tire on the first lap. He worked hard to stay out front but in the end a hard charging Jacob Stevens was able to catch Alex on the last lap. Alex was ok with 2nd after running the race on a front flat.

Alex also gets great support from Doug Roll. Doug has worked very well with Alex. Alex can give good feedback on what the bike is doing or not doing. Doug has Alex's Elka stage 4 shocks dialed in so he can ride as hard as he wants.

Alex said "The harder I hit things the better the bike works". That is what helps Alex get to the top box, Doug Roll.
