Corona, CA – May 28th – With more than a year under their belts working together as a team for THR Motorsports / Monster Energy / Precision Concepts Kawasaki, Robby Bell, Steve Hengeveld and David Pearson know exactly what it takes to win. And as the defending overall motorcycle champions in the 45th Tecate / Monster Energy / SCORE Baja 500, they’ve added a new weapon: Taylor Robert.
The 22-year-old from Arizona may be new to racing in Baja, but he has years of experience in many other arenas. He’s the defending WORCS champion, where he’s had a solid career having won the WORCS Pro 2 championship in 2008. He’s also represented Team USA abroad, earning gold medals at ISDEs in Mexico and Germany. This year, he’s concentrating on EnduroCross both domestically and internationally thanks to the inclusion of Enduro X at X Games in Brazil, Germany, Spain and the U.S. Racing is definitely in his blood.
