Brian Garrahan on track to defend West Coast championship after second place finish in first race of the season.
Northern California off-road pro motorcycle racer Brian Garrahan scored a second place finish at the West Coast Round 1 National Hare Scramble this past weekend. He finished in between Kyle Summers and Travis Coy, who placed first and third respectively.
The National Hare Scramble, the first event for 2011, was held at Arizona Cycle Park outside of Phoenix, Arizona. The Scramble was a 2 and a half hour race that included a combination of motocross tracks, sand washes, and high-speed desert terrain. The racers averaged 14 minute miles. Kyle and Brian were racing Yamaha bikes with Travis Coy on a KTM. The rain earlier in the week provided perfect conditions on the day of the race.
“This was a great pro-class event with top-quality racers,” Garrahan said. “I’m happy with my results but am looking forward to doing even better the next time around.”
For the past 10 years, Brian Garrahan has been competing at the highest level of off-road racing. In 2008 he achieved the goal of winning a championship by taking first in the West Coast Hare Scramble. In 2010, he recaptured the title and is motivated to defend it in 2011. In addition to professional racing, Brian teaches off-road racing to kids, adults, and other racers through G Brothers Racing University and his new venture, Garrahan Off-road Training. Brian’s sponsors include, but are not limited to, Yamaha, FMF, Dunlop Tires, WR1 Suspension, and Craiger Motorsports.
