Valcourt, Québec, November 26, 2012 – After a 27-hour battle with the most brutal racing terrain the Baja Peninsula of Mexico has to offer, the Motoworks / Can-Am DS 450 team of Josh Frederick, Jeremie Warnia, Collins Webster and Jarrod McClure crossed the finish line ahead of 297 other starters and 1121 miles away from the start line of the Baja 1000 in Ensenada, Mexico. Once across the line, the team was officially declared the Pro ATV-class winner of the 45th running of the Baja 1000.

“This team was prepared to deliver BRP its first Pro ATV-class victory in over a decade and the first for the DS 450 ATV,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Can-Am off-road race manager. “The dedication by the entire Motoworks team was evident from pre-running to the finish; I am proud that they are an important partner with BRP.”

Valcourt, Québec— BCS Performance / Can-Am® DS 450™ racer Josh Creamer clinched the 2012 New England ATV Motocross (NEATV-MX) Pro Class Championship by winning both Pro class motos at round nine in Clifford, Pa. Several other Can-Am racers, including Cody Miller, Hunter Miller and Joel Hetrick reached the podium in different racing events in the US. Across the Atlantic Ocean, Americans Josh Frederick and Dillon Zimmerman teamed with Frenchman Jeremie Warnia to finish fourth in the 26th Annual 12 Hours of Pont de Vaux in France.

“Josh Creamer put an exclamation point on his 2012 NEATV-MX season, winning both Pro-level classes at round 9 and securing the 2012 Pro class title with three rounds remaining. His approach and determination this year have been exceptional and he has rewarded himself, his sponsors and BRP with a well-deserved championship,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “I was extremely proud of the way the Motoworks / Can-Am team never quit and battled through adversity in France to earn fourth at Pont de Vaux.”

After a 450 mile battle with riders, dust, and heat, the Quad75Dezert team finished the 2012 Baja 500 in second place, just two and half minutes behind the 5a Yamaha team. Several competitors suffered heat stroke during this event, but the top finishers pushed through to come out on the podium.

Jorie Williams would start the race on the number 3a quad, leaving 2nd off the line behind Josh Frederick on the 2a quad. Williams passed Frederick within the first 40 miles and came into the team’s first pit leading the race. Mechanic Kenny Sanford then got on the quad and would take it to approximately race mile 100. During his 60 miles, Sanford would be overtaken by Frederick, but held on to second place as the 5a team neared. Williams then remounted the quad to take it over the Summit and into Borrego where rider Jamie Kirkpatrick would take over. Frederick’s team suffered some bad luck in the lakebed after the Summit, and would take the remainder of the day to fix their quad and get it to the finish. Baja veteran Mike Cafro’s team also suffered problems that put their quad out of the race. Mexico’s treacherous heat sickened several riders, some of them even needing medical attention, but most teams pushed on despite dangerous conditions.

Coming off of the lakebed, Williams was again in front of the field. In Borrego the Quad75Dezert team did a longer pit stop, changing tires, and noticed the pivot bolt, while safety-wired to the bike, was loose. Taking an extra few seconds to tighten the bolt gave enough time for the 5a quad to take the lead as Jamie Kirkpatrick took over the 3a quad. Brandon Brown and Richie Brown took the next three legs of the race, the Cross, the Coast, and Uruapan to the finish, but were only able to make up a few minutes. Official results put Quad75Dezert two and half minutes behind the 5a team on adjusted time, but the team had no penalties. “We raced probably the hardest we ever have, and this race was one of the closest. It’s great to see more competitors down there and it’s definitely more exciting when the racing is that tight all day,” Brandon Brown said, “Anything can happen in Mexico, and I’m just proud of our riders and support crew. We had a good race and now we’re going to plan to have the best race for the Baja 1000 in November.”

Quad75Dezert finished 2nd in Class 25 and now sits 3rd in season points. After recovering from this race, the team will be headed to compete in the BITD Vegas to Reno race in August, and then set their sights on this year’s Baja 1000.

FOX athlete Josh Frederick overcame adversity and tough track conditions in the Arizona desert to finish in second place of the fourth round of the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) and keep the series points lead, while his teammate Dillon Zimmerman rode to a solid top five finish.

Slick conditions were the order of the day due to abundant water on the course. The hard-packed sand left pools of water standing and made a slippery mess in many areas, but Frederick was in control as he charged off the start in third place.

Frederick kept a fast and steady pace going into the first couple of laps and was able to move into the No. 2 spot. Frederick held his position for several laps and took over the first spot when the leader pulled into the pits.

Frederick was soon under fire from the competition, and due to a recent illness, fatigue got the best of him, and he fell back. Despite feeling under the weather, Frederick held strong and finished in second place.

“We did a lot of testing for this track and our FOX suspension worked awesome. Im really excited with the positive outcome,” Frederick said.

FOX athlete Zimmerman also put in a strong effort and came out in the No. 4 spot off the starting line. Zimmerman rode a smart and consistent race and finished in fourth place for the day.

“My FOX suspension was perfectly dialed in, and it really helped to get me through some of the rough spots today and not get to beat up,” Zimmerman said.

Round five of the 2012 WORCS series will be held from May 11-13 at Racetown 395 MX Park in Adelanto, Calif.

Round #4 of the 2011 WORCS ATV series was held at Cahuilla Creek MX in Anza California.  Once again Mother Nature threw a curve ball at the racers with wind and cold temperatures for a spring event.  Cahuilla Creek MX sits at about 4100ft above sea level in the Cahuilla mountain range.

The MX gate was back so it wasn’t a dead engine start for this round. Dustin Nelson a multi-time Quad X champion would be the first to the corner on his Roll Design/Elka/Yamaha YFZ450R.  Can-Am’s Jeremie Warnia and Josh Frederick would pass Nelson in the first few laps, who was holding a strong 3nd Place, before having electrical issues ended his run back to the front.  Beau Baron would assume the 3rd Spot, where for most of the race the top two would be switching places.  With a last lap charge Baron closed the gap to 2nd where Warnia would make a big mistake in the off-road section, allowing Baron to make his move and grab the second place podium spot.  With no time left to hunt down Frederick, Baron would settle in and cruise in to ensure a spot on the podium that had eluded him so far this season.

In the Pro Am class, Garrin Fuller #45 of Duncan Racing, and his Roll Design / Elka suspended TRX450 would be back after an elbow injury.   Fuller came out strong and put the hammer down with the fastest lap time of 10:46.243 to take home the 1st Place spot, followed by Collins Webster and Roll Design / Elka equipped Keith Johnson in 3rd.  Johnson was awarded the “Hard Charger” award after a crash on about the 3rd lap put him way back in the pack, yet still managing to fight back and claim the podium spot.

Keith Johnson also took the Open A class win on Saturday, racing his younger brother Casey’s KFX450R quad in tribute fashion.  Casey passed away last year, and the victory was for him, and a win that will surely be remembered.

In the women’s A class, Julie Russell aboard her TRX450R MCR/Roll Design/ Elka Honda would get off the gate in the second spot and getting the lead early.  Checking out from the class during the second lap and being the fastest lap of the race 10:50.630 would take home the 1st Place trophy as well.   Be sure to watch “A Lap With” starring Julie Russell as she made her run to victory.

“We at BRP were very impressed by Chad’s performance this weekend,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am. “It is clear the off-season training by Wienen and the hard work Motoworks has put into its DS 450 program are coming together nicely at this early stage in the season.”
