After a several month hiatus from riding, Andrew Sutherland tackled the Gorman Ridge Rally roads aboard his 2008 KTM 690 Enduro, round 5 of the United States Rally Championship and the backbone of the California Rally Series (CRS) series.

Since the competition in Rally Moto was non-existent at this event, Andrew focused on beating as many rally cars as possible. After 12 stages at race-pace on the physically demanding Gorman roads, Andrew finished 6th overall and 1st in Rally Moto. An off course excursion on the second to last night stage cost Andrew a couple minutes and at least one position in the overall standings as he struggled to find a path back to the road.

Andrew’s finish cemented his CRS Rally Moto Championship lead in the under 800cc class.
