2013 WORCS Round 5 Taft, CA Bikes – Video

Taft, California – Round five of the 2013 Rocky Mountain MC World Off-Road Championship Series presented by Motoworks and Dirt Bike Magazine was held at Honolulu Hills, and for the second straight race, Precision Concept’s Robby Bell claimed the pro class win with Moose Racing’s Ryan Abbatoye and RPM / KTM’s Justin Jones rounding out the podium.

WORCS racers faced near record heat with temperatures reaching near triple digits on Sunday at Honolulu Hills in Taft, California, and the hot and dry weather conditions kept the water trucks busy in the off-road section of the track, and for the first time this year, there was a worcs-cross section, which added another challenge for the racers with many of the top pros going down atleast once over the water soaked logs.

Despite the brutal conditions, Kawasaki’s Robby Bell was up to the challenge even after mid-pack start, but he quickly charged his way through the pack and caught Pro 2 class racer, Eric Yorba, who grabbed the Holeshot and lead the first lap, but in lap two, Yorba clipped a pipe along the pavement section of the track, which opened the door for Bell to make the pass and take over the lead.
