In the last RORR main event on July 1st and 2nd, Beta riders Jordan Ashburn and Nick Davis both put forth great effort. Jordan placed 3rd with heat times that were just a few hundredths of a second off from 2nd place. Nick Davis came in a solid 4th place ending only seven seconds behind Jordan.
The course was brutal with temperatures around the mid 80’s. The competitiveness was so fierce that times only fractions of a second separated racers from one another. The track itself transitioned from dust-ridden grassy knolls and flats, to mountainous forested terrain covered in sharp-jagged rocks and boulders.
Jordan Ashburn Commented;
“Tough like RORR was not to disappoint this year, the track was very technical. I got off to a good start in the top 3 before making a mistake and dropping to around 7th place. I managed to make some passes and caught up with the third and fourth place riders, and then I battled with second place for the rest of the race. On the last lap I got stuck on a hill and couldn’t make the pass coming into the finish, so I finished in 3rd just a mere 8 seconds from 2nd place. “
Nick Davis stated;
“Today was tough. One of the hardest races I have ever done in my career. I got off to a good start, and made a few mistakes, and fell back. But the last lap I put my head down and charged to 4th. I couldn’t be happier after the tough year I have had with my injury.”
