Congratulations to David Kamo and Colton Udall! The JCR teammates put in amazing rides taking home 2nd and 4th place overall respectively, at the 3rd round of the AMA National Hare & Hound series, on Sunday, March 25 near Murphy, Idaho. Loop 1 started with a 1.5 mile 5th gear bomb run through the low sage brush and funneled into a 60 mile loop containing a series of single track and two track trail including deep water crossings and waterfall sections. Loop 2 presented a tighter more challenging 40 mile track through the southern Idaho desert. Lead racers completed the 100 mile race in just over 2.5 hours.
Everyone was raving about the amazing course the Dirt Inc. crew had put together. Kamo started just outside the top 5, having to battle dust, but made quick, calculated passes, moving up to 2nd overall by the end of the 1st loop. Kamo continued his steady push to the top of the field and ultimately finished a strong 2nd at the end of the 100 mile sprint. JCR teammate Colton Udall rode a smart race finishing a Nat’l H&H career best in 4th overall just seconds behind the last podium step. The JCR/Honda racers were mounted on twin, Eric Siraton built Honda CRF450X machines.
“David, Colton and Eric did a great job this weekend up in Idaho. We are going to continue to work hard and push to the top step of the podium for the next national in April. Big thanks to American Honda and all our great sponsors for their support!” –Johnny Campbell
