As we inch closer to the the 2017 King of the Hammers, we thought it would only be appropriate to take a look back at some of the KOH events from the past. This video from last year’s 2016 King of the Hammers offers just a glimpse of the most challenging off-road race in America.
King Shocks has been a big part of the rock-crawling desert race King of The Hammers, which is known as being one of the most treacherous and difficult off-road races in the United States. Through the vast stretches of epic desert to the rugged and intense battles of the rock trails, this race truly puts even the best off-road racers to the test. King Shocks was there every second up until race hour to ensure top performance for all of its drivers.
In yesterday’s King of the Motos race, Cody Webb was able to hold off last year’s winner Graham Jarvis for the win (check out highlights of last year’s event here).
Webb, on the #247 Beta, was the overall King of the Motos winner after completing the 160 miles of race course for two laps with an elapsed time of 4 hours, 50 minutes and 38 second.
Jarvis was in the mix with Webb until a flat tire he sustained on his Husaberg pushed him off the pace and he had to settle for second. Rounding out the podium in the pro class was the Kawasaki-mounted Taylor Robert.
The 2012 edition of the race saw a new champion crowned by the end, as Maryland resident Erik Miller showed that the East Coast rock-crawlers have what it takes to tackle the brutal Hammer course.
