Ty Renshaw Wins Glen Helen 6 Hour
The Glen Helen Endurance Series Round One: The 6 Hours of Glen Helen
First Overall: Ty Renshaw, Jason Parsons, Jason Ramsey Kawasaki KX 450F
Ty Renshaw put down his mechanics gloves this last weekend and jumped on the bike to do a little riding of his own. He recruited Jason Parsons and Jason Ramsey and ran off with the overall win at this years Glen Helen 6 hour Race. It was anything but easy as mother nature had one last go at southern California and unloaded on Devore, Ca. Rain all day Saturday left the MX track unable to be used. The course was kept to the ridges, the pavilion, the truck track, and some single track thrown in. During the race there was everything from sun shine, rain, hail, and even snow. If you weren’t prepared, you weren’t finishing
Ty did a stellar job of bike prep. as they had no bike problems. After taking the early lead, they ran strong till the three hour point. Then Jason Parsons, in his first race back after knee surgery, became a magnet for every rider who couldn’t keep his bike straight. After being center punched off his bike twice, while passing lapped riders, they dropped back to second. With a little luck and determination, they were able to claw back into the lead by the last hour and rode uncontested to the win.
Thanks to all our sponsors for your support. Great job Ty for tackling this on your own and claiming the win. It’s awesome to start off the endurance series with a win. We will be looking to the 12 hour and then getting back the 24 hour trophy.
