_

Lake Havasu, AZ - FMF/KTM riders Mike Brown and Kurt Caselli finished 2nd and 3rd respectively at the third round of the WORCS race in front of the wild Lake Havasu fans.

Both riders suffered off the start, with Caselli stuck mid-pack and Brown near last after taking two kicks to start his bike from the dead engine start. They quickly made up for their slow start when they both passed their way into the top ten within the first few laps. By the third lap Brown had moved into 5th and Caselli was sitting in 6th. Brown moved up to 4th on the fourth lap and then 3rd on the fifth lap and maintained that position for the majority of the race. On the fourth lap Caselli suffered a big crash which sidelined him for about a minute. When he recovered he had lost valuable time and was back near the tail end of the pack.

Caselli came in for the gas and took off on a mission from there. He quickly moved back up into the top ten gaining positions each lap. Meanwhile, Brown had moved into 2nd place and Caselli was coming up from behind. At the end of the race Brown was able to hold on to 2nd position with Caselli finishing just two seconds back in 3rd.

"I had a tough crash today but overall enjoyed this race. It was sandy and rough as it usually is over here but it is always fun to come out and race for the large crowd," commented Caselli.

Adding to the day's podium results was RPM/KTM rider Kacy Martinez who took the win in the women's class. Now three rounds into the series, Martinez holds the championship points lead.
