2013 Johnson Valley AMA National Hare & Hound

The fifth round of the 2013 AMA National Hare & Hound Series got underway this weekend at Johnson Valley, Calif.

And taking the win once again was Factory FMF/KTM’s Kurt Caselli. The win was Caselli’s third straight, allowing him to further strengthen his points  lead.

Joining Caselli on the podium was teammate Ivan Ramirez and Beta’s Nick Burson, respectively.

KTM reports that Caselli took the lead as the riders neared the end of the bomb run followed closely by Ramirez. The two remained close on the first loop and were able to put a good gap on the rest of the pack. By the second loop Caselli had stretched his lead on Ramirez to just over two minutes.

On the third and final loop, the riders were given more rocky terrain which allowed Caselli to further increase his lead on Ramirez to take the win by nearly five minutes. Ramirez crossed the finish line in second position, over eight minutes ahead of Burson.

Kurt Caselli says: “I was able to get out front early today so I never had to deal with the dust. I am happy to continue my win streak here and I am looking forward to the sixth round next weekend in Utah. I hope that my teammate, Ivan, can also join me on the podium there.”

The next round of the 2013 AMA Hare & Hound series will occur May 4 in Jericho, Utah.

2013 AMA Hare & Hound Point Standings:

  1. Kurt Caselli – 115
  2. Jacob Argubright – 100
  3. Nick Burson – 97
