    The year 2014 proved to be another great year of off-road racing at the WORCS series, which is the premiere off-road racing series on the West Coast for SxS, ATV, and motorcycle enthusiasts. The 2014 Rocky Mountain MC World Off-Road Championship Series Presented by Motoworks and Dirt Wheels season wrapped at Buffalo Bill’s Casino outside of Las Vegas in October after nine rounds of racing spanning over five different states, which provides the most diverse racing terrain of any one series.

    For those not familiar with WORCS racing, it is a mixture of cross-country/desert racing paired with a motocross track. The race tracks are normally around five miles long, and races run from 30 minutes to 2 hours long depending on the class, but what makes the series so unique is its diverse track locations from the sand dunes, rainforest, to beach and desert racing. The WORCS series has it all, which really makes it unique and presents racers with a wide range of challenges throughout the year.

    While the WORCS series roots started with motorcycle and ATV racing, SxS racing has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past couple of years, and the number of entries have nearly doubled each year, and the WORCS series has responded by adding more classes to accommodate all the new vehicle types and racer skill levels, which has added to its successful growth.

    Also, with SxS sales driving the off-road market for the manufacturers these days, many of the top pro ATV racers are also testing the waters in racing SxS’s with great success. For the past two years, Polaris/Maxxis’ Beau Baron has won both the Pro ATV and Pro SxS Championships, and he will back again for 2015 competing once again for dual championships.

    The start of the 2015 WORCS season is just around the corner with the opening round set for January 16-18 in Taft, California, at Honolulu Hills Raceway, and many of the great track locations are back again for 2015 with only two tracks still to be determined. So, if you want to race off-road, and do it without breaking your bank, check out WORCS SxS.
