Just a couple days after Tallon LaFountaine’s SLR Honda won the Baja 1000 with Mark Samuels, LaFountaine went to Primm, Nevada to wrap up the 2021 WORCS Championship in the 250 class.
“It was an up-and-down season,” LaFountaine said. “I wasn’t 100 percent coming into the opener at Havasu, which is a really brutal, physical track, especially if you’re under the weather. I struggled in the beginning, and also at round 2 in Arizona, in a technical section. After that race, I realized I really needed to focus on the technical stuff. My speed is fine when the courses are more open like motocross, but I needed to make improvements in the off-road stuff. I was stoked at this last round, because they had a pretty good technical Pro section, and I was one of the only ones to hit it clean every lap.”
SLR team owner Mark Samuels says LaFountaine will move up the 450 class in 2022. Just a few weeks earlier, LaFountaine clinched the 2021 AMA NGPC Pro II Title.
