TY DAVIS WINS WORCS WRAP-UP–NOV 11

TY DAVIS WINS WORCS WRAP-UP–NOV 11


In howling wind and freezing rain, Ty Davis put on an impressive display of riding skill to dominate the final round of the World Off-Road Championship at Honey Lake, California.

It was Ty’s day as he lead the entire race, aside from a brief spell after pitting. But it was Mike Kiedrowski, who took the series with his third place finish. After the Gorman round of the series, Kiedrowski was entrenched in the lead, and had only to finish eighth or better in the last race.

The championship meant a lot to Suzuki, as it was the swan song for the Yoshimura/DRZ effort which will be abandoned next year. Despite the grim weather conditions, most riders praised the race for its course layout and organization. The Worcs series will launch its 2003 season–now a nation wide series–in Phoenix next January.


KTMs Kurt Caselli proved that versatility is part of his arsenal with his first big mud race and a well earned second place finish.


Yoshimura Suzuki rider Mike Kiedrowski tallied a third overall and captured his second consecutive WORCS title. Suzuki is garaging the DRZs next year (in lue of the new 04 4-stroke and the fact that the big 4-stroke trail bike is tough to convert to full race status) and focusing on the RM based GNCC series.


Montclair Yamahas Ty Davis stompted the WORCS series pros en route to a runaway victory. Ty won 4 of the 6 races, but a DNF at the Gorman round kept him from claiming the championship.
