US Hard Enduro Series

Silver Kings Hard Enduro

Kellogg, ID

June 19th, 2022

The Beta Extreme team was back at it last weekend at the Silver Kings Hard Enduro.  Riders were met with slick conditions from rain and melting snow which made for high levels of runoff in the creek sections.  The prologue to the race was on Saturday and both Beta riders, Tim Apolle and Morgan Tanke, performed well to ensure a great starting position for Sunday’s Race.  Apolle felt really comfortable this weekend and it showed in his riding.  He was able to make his first podium of the year’s series with a strong ride.  Morgan Tanke pushed through some very tough sections to take the top spot in the Women’s Pro class.  With that result, she clinched the AMA West Regional Extreme Off-Road Championship title!

“The Silver Kings Hard Enduro in Kellogg, Idaho did not disappoint. The course was super tough and the rain definitely didn’t make it any easier. I did well in the prologue giving me a good starting position for the main race. The race course progressively got harder and harder throughout the day with a lot of riders causing some bottlenecks. Slick rocks, tree roots, grass, and steep climbs made up a lot of the silver course. Throughout the day I had to team up with other riders just to get our bikes through some of the gnarly terrain. I made it as far as I could with the allotted time and am happy to come away with the win and the West Hard Enduro Championship!”

“I felt really good on the bike at this event. We had rainy European condition so I felt comfortable. I was able to be in the USA for a solid week before the race, so I was able to get some good practice time in and wasn’t jet-lagged, which really helped me be ready for the race. I got second in the race on Saturday and then got my first main event podium on Sunday.”

Full Gas Sprint Enduro

Round 5

Martinsville, VA

June 19th, 2022

The Full Gas Sprint Enduro series was in Martinsville, VA for the 5th round of the series. The temperature at the event topped out at 80 degrees which made for dusty trails once riders exited the trees.  Beta Racing rider, Evan Smith had a great day on his Beta Factory 250 RR.  Smith won every test, en route to a strong first-place finish.  As a result of that finish, he is in the lead of the overall points standings by 25 points heading into the 6th and final round of the event in a couple weeks.

West Hare Scrambles

Round 4

Bellingham, WA

June 19th, 2022

It was a Mudder.  The fourth round of the West Hare Scramble was more about survival, dodging mud holes, and trying to find a smooth line.  Factory rider Zane Roberts did his best to survive the course.  He made his way through the pack to get into 4th place before running into a muddy bottleneck of lapped riders.  After a long day of battling the condition Zane finished in 4th place.  He’ll look to get back on the podium in a couple weeks at the next round of the West Hare Scrambles.

“Round 4 of the AMA WHS was absolute carnage! After a mid-pack start, I had to work my way through the field on the first lap, I ended up making it up to 4th before the chaos started. As we immediately started getting into lapped riders, the mud bogs became bottlenecked and the ruts started to swallow bikes whole. From that point on it was just survival. After almost 3 hours of fighting Mother Nature, I came through the checkers in 4th place. Tough weekend for me, but given the conditions it could have ended much worse.”
