Woods Wins Idaho WORCS

Mark Kariya | April 18, 2005

Defending WORCS champ Montclair Yamaha’s Nathan Woods notched win number three, and his second victory in a row, at round five of the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS), presented by Rekluse, in Payette, Idaho, yesteray.

The Yamaha YZ450F racer took command early in the two-hour race on the fast racecourse that was held in nearly perfect conditions. Woods ended up with a comfortable margin over runner-up Kurt Caselli on a KTM 450 MXC. Two-time series champ Mike Kiedrowski claimed third on his Suzuki RM-Z450.

“It was an awesome day,” Woods said. “Everything went my way today. My bike worked out great. Obviously, it was a big four-stroke track. Luckily, the rain this morning made the track really good, because it would’ve been a different race if it was dusty like it was the day before.”

Fourth went to Honda rider Bobby Garrison, while Russell Pearson charged past Montclair Yamaha teammate Ty Davis within sight of the finish to steal fifth.
