2018 Rough Riders 100 Hare Scrambles Results

Cycle News Staff | February 19, 2018

2018 Rough Riders 100 Hare Scrambles Results – The temptation of a $10,000 purse lured many of the west’s top off-road racers to the second round of the Kenda/SRT AMA West Hare Scrambles Championship in Prescott Valley, Arizona, February 17-18. Kendal Norman, Max Gerston, Trystan Hart, Jacob Argubright, Dante Oliveira and Ricky Dietrich were some of the big names that turned out for the Arizona Motorcycle Riders Association’s Rough Rider 100, but even these guys couldn’t do anything about FMF KTM’s Taylor Robert who passed fast-starter Travis Coy early in the race and ran off with the win—and the money.

“Well, I’m not going to lie!” Robert said, laughing. “They put up a healthy purse, a cool trophy, they put a lot of effort into the event and it’s only an hour and a half from my house so it’s kind of a no-brainer. I didn’t have any [contracted] races this weekend and [wanted to] make a few thousand dollars instead of sitting on the couch.”

SRT/Husqvarna’s Trystan Hart was next-best rider on the day, taking the checkered flag just under a minute behind Robert. Hart started the race off in third, had second place in hand by the second lap and held it to the end.

FMF/KTM rider Dante Oliveira was third, followed by Kendal Norman (Honda) and Max Gerston (Beta).

Hart, a series regular, is still the points leader with two runner-finishes so far. He leads Gerston by four points, and Oliveira is another four points behind Gerston.

Robert is not chasing the hare scrambles title in 2018. His win, however, does put him in fourth place.

In the FMF Pro 250 class, Kawasaki rider Clayton Hengeveld led most of the class for most of the race and held on to take the win in 12th overall with an approximately 45-second cushion over KTM rider Spenser Wilton. Jeremy Wilton (KTM) was a distant third.

Brandy Rich (KTM) topped the Women’s A class, followed by Shelby Turner (KTM) and Nicole Bradford (KTM).
