Professional off road desert racers Hayden Hintz and Trevor Hunter earned the 2020 Open Pro Moto Championship after a competitive season in the Best In The Desert (BITD) Racing Series. The duo clashed mainly against challenger Nic Colangeli. With consistent finishes across the 5 Rounds, Hayden & Trevor rode their #N57 KTM 450 XC-F to win the BITD Open Pro Championship, the Adventure Series Championship, and the Maxxis Triple Crown Overall Championship.
Powered by F&L Racing Fuels fast burn SP-3, the #N57 team earned 4 podiums, including 1 win at the National Desert Cup and a 2nd place finish at the BlueWater Desert Challenge season finale.

“The Best In The Desert Championship, and the Open Pro class, in particular, is one of the hardest championships to earn in American Off-Road racing. Spanning five events and over 20 hours of physical race time, the series lends itself to failures and mistakes, but we were able to limit the lows and rebound quickly. We started the year off on a brand new bike with less than an hour of break-in time before heading to the Parker 250, the season opener. Our riding suffered as a result, though we still managed a podium and gained valuable championship points. From there, we rode better and better as a team. We overcame some small but significant mechanical problems at every race before culminating with an Open Pro class win at the National Desert Cup and solidifying our points lead with one race left. At the series finale, we posted the fastest time on Day 2 of racing to finish 2nd O/A on the weekend and wrap up the Open Pro Championship, the Adventure Series Championship, and the Maxxis Triple Crown Championship. Thank you to everyone involved for putting this one together, especially KTM, 3 Brothers Racing, Kenda Tires, Klim Motorcycle, and F&L Racing Fuels. We could not have done it without them.” – Hayden Hintz, BITD #N57 Open Pro
“Coming into the final round of the Best In The Desert championship, Hayden Hintz and I held the points lead but still needed to have a good ride to secure the Open Pro championship. We finished 2nd overall on the weekend. We were successful in winning the Open Pro Championship, the mini Adventure Series Championship, and the Maxxis Triple Crown Championship, which netted us an extra $3,500 cash award. By finishing 2nd this weekend, we lost out on an extra $2,500 in prize money, but we aren’t complaining too much! Now, we look forward to finishing out the GP season and will head into 2021 with hopes of defending the N1 plate!” – Trevor Hunter, BITD #N57 Open Pro
