Team FMF Suzuki Off Road’s Paul Whibley Takes Second-Straight OMA Win

June 8, 2008, Waukon, Iowa: Team FMF/Suzuki Off-Road’s Paul Whibley continued to dominate the woods racing scene by racing to another stunning victory at the wet Maxxis Coyote Cross-country National, round four in the Parts Unlimited Off-Road Motorcycle and ATV Nationals (OMA), in Waukon, Iowa. Tornadoes, flash floods, overflowing creeks and pouring rain, made the course a challenge even for the most skilled riders, but Whibley took it all in stride and even looked comfortable at speed in the whacky weather conditions. After winning his second consecutive series race and stretching his series points lead, Whibley observed, ‘I guess I’m more comfortable in this wet than the dust.’

Teammate Jimmy Jarrett switched from his usual RM250 to his Team FMF Suzuki Off-Road RM-Z450 and quickly slotted himself into second, but could not catch the rapidly disappearing Whibley and settled for his second straight runner-up finish, taking that spot in points as well.

Whibley’s second straight win the OMA series comes only one week after his second straight win the GNCC series, which currently gives Whibley the best winning streak in off road racing so far this season. Currently, Whibley leads the OMA Series Championship and is a close second in the GNCC title chase.
