Gary Sutherlin kept his winning streak alive in the 2014 Rocky Mountain MC World Off-Road Championship Series at Lake Havasu City, Arizona, March 16. The KTM privateer has now won all three rounds of the series held so far.
Sutherlin battled back and forth with former WORCS Champion Ricky Dietrich before pulling away at the end and capturing the victory.
Another former WORCS champ, Bobby Bonds, put in a strong ride. After getting off to a bad start, Bonds spend the entire race working his way up through the field on his R&D Motorsports Kawasaki. He eventually caught and passed Dietrich for second place and was gaining ground on Sutherlin when the checkered flag came out. Finally, Bonds managed to put some of his bad luck behind him.
KTM rider Justin Jones held on to finish fourth, with defending WORCS champ Robby Bell rounding out the top five overall.
In Pro 2, Travis Coy claimed the overall win on his KTM, followed by Steven Gibson (Kawasaki) and David Broderick (KTM).
Honda rider Blayne Thompson toped the Pro 2 Lites division over Logan Chambers (KTM).
