Taylor Robert had a perfect season going into the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) round 4 in Peoria  Arizona and it’s still in tack. Robert’s would best his closest competitor RPM/KTM rider Dante Oliveira by over a minute on the way to his fourth victory in as many rounds. Rockstar Husqvarna factory rider Andrew Short would round out the Pro class podium in third overall.

Taylor Robert:
I got off to a great start with the holeshot, it was my first holeshot of the season, so that felt good. I really wanted to get the holeshot, too, because there were a couple of filthy sections that I knew were going to spread people apart on the first lap. All-in-all, the track was really technical and you had to be on your toes because there were a lot of rocks out there. I just kept pushing and tried to be as smooth as possible and not let the rocks get the best of me. The WORCS crew did a really good job, they put in a couple ‘pro only’ sections that were really technical, so that was fun.”

Dante continues to impress aboard his RPM KTM machine. He is emerging as a tittle threat in 2019.
This is Shorts first full year in the series and his first podium.
