Honda’s Ricky Brabec has won the opening round of the 2016 AMA National Hare and Hound Championship.

Despite knocking out the best part of 9,000 kilometres in two weeks on his HRC rally bike at Dakar, Brabec proved he still had enough left in the tank to get the job done at Johnson Valley.

With Brabec first across the line, Husqvarna’s Jacob Argubright chased him home for second.

Beta’s Nick Burson complete the top three for round one of the series.
