Argubright Wins Reno Hare & HoundJuly 16, 2013 - 4:57 PM
Off Road Support’s Jacob Argubright captured his second straight win at the Get-Xtr-Eme Reno Fireworks Extreme event and in doing so took home his first win of the year in the AMA National Hare and Hound Series.
The 20-mile loop was nothing short of grueling, and after making a pass in the early going, Argubright led wire to wire. “It felt really good out there today. The bike worked great, and this is the kind of stuff I love. I just blasted through every rock, and tried to keep as much of a gap on Kurt as I could.”
With a 49-minute average lap time, Argubright was the only rider to complete each of the three laps in under 50 minutes. “I could feel that I was beginning to pull away. First I didn’t hear Kurt anymore, then I didn’t see him. What I did see though was people stuck everywhere. I tried my hardest to avoid the lappers, and just kept the bike moving forward. I love these extreme races, and can’t wait for the next one.”
“It has really been a privateer effort this year. I am racing basically every weekend, so it is near to impossible to keep all of the bikes running! Reid Nordin and Jeff Decker at Kawasaki helped me out with a motor for this race, and I can’t thank them enough. Kawasaki has always been a big help, and I am glad to get a win for their team!”
Leading into the Reno Extreme weekend, the first National Hare and Hound event ever to have live web coverage via dirtlive.com, Argubright received notification of his selection for the 2013 Los Angeles X Games! “This was a really great weekend. My girlfriend and I both won (Meg took the Woman’s A win) and I got into X Games again! Now I need to get back into EnduroCross mode and get ready to race in Downtown LA again!”
Off Road Support would like to congratulate Megan Blackburn on being the first woman to finish the 2013 Reno Extreme National Hare and Hound!
Jacob Argubright’s next race will be Sunday August 4th at the Staples Center for X Games Los Angeles. Tickets are available here: http://www.axs.com/xgames.
The National Hare and Hound Association will return to racing Saturday August 24th in Panaca, Nevada.
