Lake Havasu, Arizona round 3 of the Rocky Mountain ATV WORCS series headed back to the water of Havasu City for spring break and what turned out to be a great weekend of racing across the board.
DirtHalo/Xtravel racer Dakota Hibler entered Saturday’s race as the Women C points leader with plenty of competition on the line at the start. Dakota started off the line in fifth but quickly made a pass to fourth and another to third just after the first table top and hunted down the two other riders in front. Entering the scoring shoot for lap one, Dakota was a mere 1.4 seconds behind leader Bailey Baron #548, but Dakota was able to make a pass on the outside heading out to the back part of the track, Havasu known for its rough terrain let the Xtravel Long travel suspension go to work! Dakota never let up from there winning for the third straight race this season in Women C.
On Sunday, Dakota lined up against another tough and stacked field and started out once again in sixth off the line, but was able to make some passes early and catch up to the podium group. Dakota trailed the #675 for a few laps as the laps kept going and the terrain got rougher and dug out Xtravel suspension was a key as Dakota was able to make the pass to take the final podium spot in Production C and first podium in class for the season. Dakota looks forward to heading back to Taft for round 4, where her WORCS Racing career started last season. We are excited for Taft, we have a rising star on the west coast!
