The morning was overcast and chilly (by Arizona standards) but come race time the sun was out and it was a beautiful January day at Arizona Cycle Park, host to Round 1 of the AMA West Hare Scramble. Cory Graffunder was defending his #1 plate from many other riders that will try to take it from him this year.
Gary Sutherland got off to a quick start and pretty much lead the way for the whole two and a half hours
But that didn’t keep Sutherland from sneaking a peak behind him ever once and a while
Justin Sanders made short work of the huge sand doubles as he piloted his Yamaha to second place
David Broderick started on the second row in AA class but charged all the way to a third overall!
