Justin Jones rode a conservative race to finish seventh
in the Pro class, but still maintains second in the points.
Photographer icon Kinney Jones gets right in Justin’s face.
Ivan versus Travis. The terrain was so tricky at Sand Hollow
that riders often paced each other, waiting for a last-lap
sprint. The 2014 Pro 2 champion, Travis Coy, beat the 2011 Pro
2 champion, Ivan Ramirez, at the line for fifth in the Pro class.
As for the race itself, it’s brutal. The deep sand is peppered with rocks and shelves of hard sandstone. Riders go
from wide-open attempts to climb on top of the sand to
technical, throttle-control sections in a heartbeat.
This year’s pro race marked the return of the number-
one plate. Gary Sutherlin had been injured for the last two
rounds, leaving THR’s Robby Bell to run free. Bell’s four-
race winning streak came to an end after a two-hour epic
race with Sutherlin. The two marked each other, going only
as fast as they needed until an all-out final lap. Bell basi-
cally gave the race away by falling twice. Third place was
a race to the line, with Eric Yorba finally overcoming a DNF
streak to beat out Justin Seeds by a hair. The same thing
happened two minutes later as Travis Coy raced in with
Ivan Ramirez on his tail. For full coverage, go to www.dirt-
