Milford, CA - MCR/Maxxis’ Beau Baron had a flawless run at round number five of the 2010 WORCS series to take the top spot on the pro podium, while Can-Am/Motoworks’ Josh Frederick and Yamaha’s Dustin Nelson would join him respectively in second and third.

You would expect warm sunning conditions in California by May, but that wasn't the case for Round 5 in Milford, CA, where temperatures were near freezing & racers dealt with snow showers while the ground was coated in snow just above the track on the mountain

Honey Lake MX was the hosting facility for this round, which saw colder than normal temperatures with wet snow falling during Saturday’s races. Although the snow did not stick around, it made for some wet conditions that would carry over to Sunday’s main events. The Honey Lake facility is known for its rocky terrain that can take a toll on equipment, but MCR/Maxxis Tires’ Beau Baron had an incredible race.

Baron, who is very comfortable in rough and rocky terrain, got off to an excellent start in the top five and was soon in second place chasing down leader Josh Frederick. Baron was right on Frederick for the entire first lap and then in lap two, Baron made the pass and checked out. “As soon as I got out front, I knew I wanted to put a bit of a gap between me and Josh, so I pushed hard and got about a 40 second lead on him,” explained Baron, who would record the fastest lap time of the race in lap three with a time of 08:34.963.

Baron would stay consistent, keeping his lead on Frederick for 13 laps before taking the checkered flag for first. “This win was very important for me and I’m really glad I was able to make it happen,” said Baron, who is now only four points behind Josh Frederick.

Can-Am Motoworks’ Josh Frederick looked solid as he came off the line and quickly took over the lead. Frederick led for one lap before he would fall back to second. “This was the type of track where you want to go fast, but you also want to ride smart,” said Frederick, who would hold his second place status all the way to the finish line.

Although he finished in second, Frederick still holds the pro points lead and will be tough to beat at round six where the desert-like track conditions are more suited to Frederick’s riding style.
