05/17/14: FMF/KTM’s Ivan Ramirez has gotten the fire started again taking another win making 3 for the season. He would take it wire to wire once again proving that when the trails get tight he twists the throttle even harder. After the start Ramirez wouldn’t be able to pull away that easily with THR Kawasaki’s Ricky Brabec looking to take another win on the season. Into the pits Ramirez would only have a 16 second cushion but with the trails getting a little more technical he would be able to pull away to over 2 minutes by the end of the 80 mile, point to point event. Brabec would come across in 2nd after a few tumbles but wold have 2 minutes over 3rd overall himself. “It was a little faster then I was expecting in the mountains but I still had a blast. Taking the title chase all the way to the last race baby!” said Brabec at the finish.
Purvines Racing’s Nick Burson would finish right where he started the race in 3rd overall. He would ride pretty much all by himself all the way to the finish. He still holds on to the points lead but only by 2 points making for one of the most exciting championships in a long time. While Burson curently leads, Brabec his pushing hard to take over and Ramirez is quickly regaining the ground he lost in Idaho. Husquvarna’s Jake Argubright is also sneaking up only 67 points from the top spot and is playing spoiler at every round he can make it to!
The finish line would take the riders through the local hardware shop and into the main street highlighting one of the best part’s of the Silver State Trailblazer’s events. Sign up’s were in the Fire Department, the podium was in Rose Park – right in the middle of town – the checks had help from the local cheerleading squad and the entire community was behind the event!
