The weather conditions were ideal in Martinsville for the second leg of the AMA East Hare Scrambles, hosted by VXCS. There was light rain on Thursday which created the perfect traction for Sunday’s race. A talented group of riders participated in the event and after the first lap Beta Racing was running 1, 2, 3 with Max, Thorn, and Kyle. Both Thorn and Max ran into bad luck. Max hitting a tree stump on a pass, and Thorn out of the race when a stick displaced a wire leaving him without power. That handed Beta support rider Kyle McDonal the lead. He battled his way to the checkered flag to finish in first place. In the Women’s A/B division, Rachel Gutish put on a masterclass of riding. She led from start to finish with a comfortable margin. This is Rachel’s second win of the season. Congrats Rachel and Kyle.
Kyle McDonal – 1st Place – Pro Class
Rachel Gutish – 1st Place – Women A/B Class
Max Fernandez – 9th Place – Pro Class
Thorn Devlin – 12th Place – Pro Class
