Coming into the first round I was definitely nervous even though in October we went south to Texas and ran with faster guys I couldn’t help but feel I wasn’t as prepared as I wanted to be for the first round. With little riding in the off season due to weather conditions and long work hours it made it very difficult to prep myself for the opening weekend.
Quadcross Northwest returned to Horn Rapids Motorsports Complex April 25th and 26th for the opening rounds. Beautiful weather on both days helped to highlight amazing racing and one of the biggest Pro gates the series has seen since it’s inception. Several large classes of riders took on the sandy mix, but only Â a few came out on the box! Fast rising Pro athlete Ruby Davis took 4 holeshots and 4 moto wins, while Jace Johnson put on a great effort to catch him.
The first two rounds of Quadcross Northwest took place in Richland, Washington at Horn Rapids. The fourth year the series has raced there, the track had undergone a few changes to the layout, giving racers familiar and new challenges. The Pro qualifier took place in the morning during what would have been second practice for the Pros. Ruby Davis turned the fastest lap of the weekend with a 1:30 and change. This would be telltale of the weekend’s events.
Rain rain go away 2nd moto wants a sunny day! Round 2 of the ATV Nationals at Underground MX in Kemp, TX brought us a over night storm between motos 1 and 2 yet again. This time the motos continued as planned, with only a short 15 min delay due to some track clean off.
I’m not butt hurt about the rain though. No, I am literally butt hurt from a get off I had about a week and half prior to this round, that landed me square on my booty. Due to some spider fractures and torn muscles, this race report will only cover the guys in my life. They’re the real talent anyway, right?
This was the first time the ATV Nationals had been back to Texas in many years. With a lot of promotion from the local series TQRA and LSQR, there where around 530 entries! With those numbers, Saturday’s moto 1 races had a hand full of classes with enough entries to require qualifying heats. Both Phil and Kellen had to run heat races to qualify for moto 2.
Kellen, with a dead last start into the first turn, quickly made 6 passes before the first lap, and pulled a 2nd in his heat race for the 70 Auto class. Next day on moto 2 he was, once again, last going into turn one. He brought himself up from 16th to 8th in lap one, gained some ground and made a pass for 7th on lap 3, and had a exciting finish as he nearly passes for 6th in the whoops at the finish line. 4th overall in the 70 Auto, and he’s learning that hole shots really make a difference. He can’t wait and pick everyone off like he is use to when racing with the best of the best.
This bike was built for use in the Quad X Pro Class and WORCS Pro-Am and Production A classes. Nothing was left untouched and the attention to detail on the bike is crazy. My dad Bob Waldo put the most time in on the build and I cannot thank him enough for all that he does for my racing. The motor was left mild for the reliability needed in the hour and a half WORCS races and Rob Golden builds the best motor I have ever ridden hands down so I’d like to thank him as well. The components on this bike are courtesy of my awesome sponsors and are the best in the industry. Thank you to everyone involved and I can’t wait to get this thing dirty!

One of the awesome things about writing product reviews and not having any obligations to a particular gear company is that I get to test all sorts of gear. Of course the downside is that it’s at my own expense, but I thoroughly enjoy this part of the sport as much as any and it’s a passion. On that note, I’m excited to be doing a test of Shift’s 2015 Faction gear combo. With two other sets of gear still fresh on my mind and my only motive being enthusiasm, this review is as straightforward as they come.
The gate has dropped on the opening round of Quadcross Northwest! With that comes fun, good friends, and lots to talk about. Let’s dive on in and take a closer look at this past weekend.
Spokane, WA – After a crash last year at Washougal for the final rounds of Quadcross Northwest left Trevor Oestreich with news of a heart condition previously undiagnosed, Trevor was expected to never be able to do physical activities again. After extensive doctor visits and finally flying toÂ New JerseyÂ to see a specialist, Trevor Oestreich has been cleared to race the opening rounds of Quadcross Northwest next weekend. “I am very happy,” Trevor said by phone, “Especially going from zero racing last year toÂ someÂ riding and now getting back to racing! I just have to take it easier than before.” For Trevor, that means dropping down from the ProAm class and just competing in the Production A class.
On Wednesday, March 18th, around 6pm, we got the word that we had a donation for the fuel to get us from Portland, OR to the first round of the AMA ATV Motocross Championship in Lizella, GA. We scrambled to load up, headed out of the driveway at 10pm, and made it to the track inÂ Georgia early Saturday morning the day of racing. We were all tired from the non stop driving (except gas and potty breaks) for 56 hrs.
That whole morning was RUSH RUSH RUSH to sign up, get transponders, find out when our practice was, unload the bikes, get geared up, and hustle over to our THREE lap practice. Apprently that is all you get on Saturday, and Sunday you get two laps. The track is a sand track so by practice #3 the track was already extremely beat up with ruts swing arm deep. The minis could hardly make it through the things. They even had to do bits of track work before each of the mini motos.
