❏ The ATV Pro Challenge is an ATV
motocross race event on its second
year running. This year’s race was
held at Underground MX in Kemp,
Texas, on October 10th through the
12th. Pro riders came from all over
to compete in the three-day, two-mo-to race. There are multiple classes
that riders—from amateurs to pros—
can join. The track was wet and
tacky, making for a great competition
among the racers. Since the passing
of X Games snowmobile and ATV
freestyle rider Caleb Moore, many
events and races have been put on
in his honor. The ATV Pro Challenge
was dedicated to Caleb, and the
racer who took home the overall win
this year was David Haagsma.
Haagsma rode conservatively
during the first moto and was able
to keep a consistent lead over the
field. He battled Thomas Brown, who
was hot on his tail during both motos.
After taking the win in the first moto,
David stole the holeshot for a second
time during moto two, with the rest of
the riders close behind. Once again,
he retained the lead with his smart
and fluid riding style and gained a
solid lead, earning him the second
moto win. We decided to catch up
with David Haagsma to fill us in
on how he handled the ATV Pro
Challenge of 2014.

The track was wet and tacky, which made for great traction. Haagsma was able to
steal both holeshots from the other riders.
Contestants from all over the states join the ATV Pro Challenge to battle for the top spot in both motos.
