National Hare & Hound Series – 3rd round El Centro, CA

Shock Doctor/KTM Factory team rider David Pearson earned 2nd overall at the third round of the AMA Hare & Hound Series while his teammate David Kamo finished two spots back in 4th.

The first section was 65 miles and took approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete. On the start of the loop Kamo was in 3rd while Pearson was behind him in 4th. At the halfway point of the first loop Kamo and Pearson had switched positions while Russ Pearson had the lead and Destry Abbott was sitting in 2nd.

The second loop was 40 miles in length and more technical than the fast-paced first section. Dust was a factor as riders had to zig-zag behind their competitor to try and see around them. It was on this loop that David Pearson passed Russ Pearson for the 2nd place position. David Pearson went on to finish 2nd only 30 seconds behind the winner Destry Abbott. Kamo finished in the 4th spot.
