WORCS 2023 - RACE RECAP ROUND TWO
February 13, 2023
Delano, CA - Round Two of the WORCS Rocky Mountain ATV/MC series traveled to Central California to American MX park in Delano, CA. DirtHalo Racing's Dakota Hibler coming off of her first ever professional race last month in Primm was looking to build on that race and push towards the podium for the first time. Fighting a stomach ailment all week leading up the race, Hibler was just trying to get it under control enough to be able to compete and push. With four other ladies on the line, Hibler got a bad start but was able to get into fourth by the first couple of turns. Coming in on lap one she was sitting in fourth but gaining on the number three spot held by Donna Espenson. Hibler was pushing and made the pass for third on lap two in the back section of the course and was able to start to put some distance on the 4th place spot. Coming into the final lap Hibler was fighting to maintain the final podium spot and was able to secure it by just over two seconds and finish on the final podium spot for the event. Hibler became the youngest female professional to podium in just her second race and will look to round three to improve her riding and push towards the top spot.
