TAYLOR ROBERT WORCS Racing KTM 450 XC F 1200

FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Taylor Robert claimed his second-straight victory in the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) on Sunday for Round 2 of the 11-round series in Primm, Nevada. 

Robert was able to keep his KTM out front from start-to-finish as he led all nine laps of the two-hour race. Beginning with a 10-second lead on the opening lap, Robert continued to stretch his lead over the course of the race, where he finished almost two minutes ahead of the second place rider Gary Sutherlin.

“The race was awesome,” told Robert. “We had perfect weather and the track conditions were good – it was really fast and rough. I had a good start and quickly got into the lead. “I tried to check out and just focus on riding my own race all the way to the checkers.”

In the Pro 2 class, KTM-mounted rider Logan Chambers earned his second consecutive win to extend his early points lead in the class. FMF/Maxxis/RPM KTM Racing Team’s Dante Oliveira put in an impressive come-from-behind performance to claim second after an early pit stop put him in dead last on the opening lap.

KTM-mounted Austin Serpa earned his first victory of the season in the Pro 2 Lites class, where he now sits one-point ahead in the early championship standings. 

Next Event: Round 3 – Taft, California – February 17-19, 2017
