Honda TRX450R Build from Ryan Waldo

Summary:

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!

2015 Sponsors: Mom & Dad, Pit Traffic, Lonestar Racing, Maxxis Tires, Moose Racing, Golden Motorsports, Spider Graphix, Goldspeed, Sunstar, Just 1 Helmets, Elka Suspension, Powermadd, Maxima Oils, Uni, Fasst Co, AME Grips, Hinson, Dasa Racing, Fourwerx Carbon, EKS Brand Goggles, Galfer, Rynopower, IMS, Moto Hose, Atlas Brace, VGR

Matt Hancock Lake Havasu race report

Pro Motorsports’ Matt Hancock Takes Crazy Horse WORCS Pro-Am Podium Finish

2014-pro-motorsports-logo-200Lake Havasu City, AZ – Pro Motorsports’ Matt Hancock braved the heat and tough conditions at round three of the 2014 WORCS Series in Lake Havasu City, AZ to claim the final spot on the Pro-am ATV podium; giving him his second Pro-am podium finish of the season, which has him third in championship points.

Despite the brutally rough terrain and temperatures well into the 90s, Hancock shot off the start in third place. “I had a good start. My Sparks engine fired on the first kick, and I just flew off the line the line with my Maxxis tires,” said Hancock.

Early on he dropped back several spots to seventh place, but Hancock’s strategy was to run a smooth and consistent pace for the entire race to conserve some energy for the final laps of the race, and by lap ten, Hancock had regained his original third place spot, which he held to the checkered flag for his second podium finish of the season. “I dropped back a bit early on, but I set a comfortable pace, so I had plenty of energy to push hard in the final laps and move into a podium finish,” said Hancock.

Goldspeed Racers Earn Top Spots From Coast to Coast

WORCS_2014_Havasu_Donna-EllsworthLas Vegas, Nevada 3/24/14 Goldspeed Racing Products returned to the top of the podium last weekend as reigning ATVA champion Chad Wienen secured his first win of the season.  Wienen and the entire Wienen Motorsports race team have elected to compete aboard the Goldspeed aluminum race wheel for the second year in a row.  2 time champion Chad Wienen came out swinging, taking the fastest qualifier award as well as the moto one win ahead of a talented and hungry field of racers.  In moto two, Wienen trailed John Natalie who ripped a holeshot and carried the lead for the entire race.  Wienen’s 1-2 finishes were good enough to give him the overall and allow him to keep the coveted red plate going into round two.  Fellow Wienen Motorsports/Goldspeed/FMF rider Thomas Brown managed a 5-5 finish to give him a top five spot for the weekend.

On the west coast, WORCS racers managed to overcome the brutal conditions of the Lake Havasu race course to earn multiple podiums at the third round of the World Offroad Championship Series. Despite a historically rough course, record attendance meant that racers would have to be on top of their game to survive the conditions as well as the competition.

For Immediate Release: JRi Shocks Lake Havasu WORCS ATV & UTV Racing recap and VIDEO

WORCS_Havasu_2014_JRi-Shocks-_David_Flores-BeachMooresville NC 3/19/14 JRi Shocks ATV and UTV racers battled one of

the most challenging WORCS courses to date at the last round of the World

Offroad Championship series as record numbers of ATV, UTV and Motorcycle racers turned out for the final Lake Havasu WORCS race held at Crazy Horse Campground.   Over the years, the Havasu round has become a favorite among racers despite consistently being dubbed one of the harshest, 

most abusive courses on the circuit.

JRi Shocks has entered 2014 with a fully fueled roster featuring five UTV Racers and two top ATV racers who will fly the JRi flag at each of the series 9 rounds.

Humboldt Motorsports, a three car team comprised of owners Roger Kirkpatrick, Travis Rasmussen and Pro UTV racer Dana Creech, approached JRi last winter with the intention of fielding a factory-like presence for each of the 9 WORCS rounds.  JRi Shocks jumped on board and despite limited time testing the new ECX 3 XP 1000 shocks, the racers have been nothing but pleased with its performance.

“All of the WORCS courses are known to be some of most roughest and most abusive courses on cars and equipment and we definitely found that out at the first round but the shocks can handle it” says Travis Rasmussen.  “I actually jumped the lagoon
jump twice in practice and everyone was coming up to me telling me how nice and level the car was flying and the landing was nice and smooth.”
