Round One and the season opener of the Kenda SRT National Hare and Hound series took place this weekend in Johnson Valley, California. The race consisted of 2 loops. The first loop was 34 miles filled with technical rock sections, uphills, and rough trail riding, while the second loop was longer and faster trail riding.

After a slower start off the line, Jacob Argubright was in about 40th, but his speed helped push him into 22nd by the time he reached the top of the first crest. From there, Argubright was able to pick riders off, one by one. At only 30 minutes into the race he was in 5th place, with 4th and 3rd in his sights. The desert proved to be tough and relentless, but by the time Jacob came into the pits he was riding in a solid 2nd and only 32 seconds behind the leading spot.

Argubright pushed himself the whole second lap with the drive to finish the season opener in the top spot. He would finish second overall, only 20 seconds behind the leader. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Off-road team manager, Tim Weigand said, “Jake showed a lot of strength and speed. We are looking forward to him building off of this great finish into the next round.” Jacob, equally excited stated, “I am ecstatic to have taken 2nd place today. My FC 450 could not have been set up more perfectly and it was a blast ripping through the Southern California desert. What a great way to start the season! I look forward to a fun year with my team.”
