The Side-by-Side category at the Quit Forest Rally held on the weekend in Western Australia was won by Cody Crocker and Greg Flood in their Polaris RZR 900XP. Ahead of the Can Am Maverick’s of #94 Nathan and Les Chivers in second and #96 Iain Hughes/Adam Barnes in third. Michael Guest had been the star performer in the brand new Can-Am Maverick on Saturday but faltered late in the day to let Cody Crocker take the lead and storm home for the win.
“Guesty’s got himself a flying machine!” laughed Cody. “On the third or fourth stage yesterday we managed to take 10 seconds out of him, and I think I got a bit too ahead of myself because he smashed us by 16 seconds on the next stage.”
“Then it was on, we would take a couple of seconds off him, then he’d take a couple of seconds off us, until we got to the last stage and his clutch let go. It was a shame it had to end like that,” added Cody.
