CROSS FORK, PA (JULY 23, 2017) – Rocky Mountain ATV*MC/KR4/Husqvarna Team Hits Rattlesnake Enduro – NEPG Round Five of the Series in Cross Fork, Pennsylvania.
The KR4 Husqvarna Arrive-N-Ride Team was out in full force once again with a full stable of riders representing multiple classes. Leading the charge on row 34 was KR4's, Grant Baylor who was ready for the challenge and finishing 4th on test one. On the second test of the day, Grant made some costly mistakes and end up with a 10th place finish which put him at the end of the pack. He would eventually finish the day out with a 8th place finish and keep his 3rd points for the championship.
"It was a rough day at the rattlesnake, I felt like I was riding well but my times were saying otherwise and I just made a few too many mistakes to get the job done. We're still third in points and healthy, so on to the next one!"
The dominance of Tayla Jones continues at the Rattlesnake and once again she rode a flawless race while she piloted her Husqvarna to a Women’s overall class win. Jones is obviously no stranger to winning in 2017, but the fact that she took this victory by over a 25 minute margin was very impressive.
Conner Keegan had his best finish of the season at the Rattlesnake. Conner won test 5 in the 250A class and ended up finishing 36th overall for the day.
"I had a fun day at the Rattlesnake and rode good all day except for a few crashes. Ended up 4th and 36th overall." -- Conner Keegan
