Rocky Mountain ATV*MC/KR4/Husqvarna Team Report: Rock Crusher Full Gas Sprint Enduro
YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. (October 23, 2017) – The Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro (FGSE) series, presented by PRI Powersports Insurance, continued this past weekend, October 21 and 22, with the Rock Crusher Sprint Enduro. The unique property featured part of the track in North Carolina and the other in Georgia, while boasting perfect racing conditions for Rocky Mountain ATV*MC/KR4/Husqvarna team members who took part in the penultimate round.
With the Women’s Pro championship already in hand, Tayla Jones elected to change up her program and race her Husqvarna TC125. Jones won 10 of the 12 tests and took her eighth win of the season 58-seconds ahead of her closest competition. Jones had set a goal for herself at the beginning of the season to place inside the top-10. After sitting in 11th at the conclusion of Saturday, Jones pushed even harder on Sunday and can now mark that goal off her list with a tenth overall placement.
“I love racing the Full Gas Sprint Enduros,” said Jones. “It was a good weekend at the Rock Crusher Farm with some sweet tracks that were exceptionally fun on my Husqvarna TC125. I got another win in the women’s pro class an I am pumped to finally crack top-10 with tenth overall! Thank you to all of my awesome sponsors!”
Chase Sweda also switched up bikes and ran a 2017 Husqvarna FC250 this past weekend at the Rock Crusher Sprint Enduro. Sweda won three tests throught the course of the weekend, and never finished outside of the top-five. Sweda raced his way to third – his best finish to date – and accredits his win to the power and feel of his new ride.
Unfortunately, Maximo Gutierrez hurt his ankle in one of the tests on Sunday forcing him to drop out of the event early. His impressive results from Saturday allowed him to salvage fifth place in the Juniors 12-17 class.
KR4 Performance Team Results:
- Tayla Jones – Women’s Pro – 1st
- Chase Sweda – Lites B – 3rd
- Maximo Gutierrez – Juniors 12-17 – 5th
