Kamloops - Round One is in the Books!

Shawn Rife finished second overall at the first round of the 2010 CMRC Nationals

  Well, after months of preparation the first round has come and gone. By all accounts, other than Teddy's flat tire in moto one it was a good day. The riders holeshot both motos and Shawn won the first moto. Spenny had a great ride with fifth overall and Teddy came back to grab second in the final moto. Brock also rode well despite being sick and grabbed ninth overall in his first ever MX1 race. Also big props to Leading Edge support rider, Kohl Canaday, for grabbing 11th overall in his first pro national!

Here's some photos from the day.

Nex-Trax Arenacross Rounds 6-7

Brady Sheren took the Open class win on Saturday night!

After seven rounds and four weekends we wrapped up the Chilliwack swing of the 2009-10 Nex-Trax Canadian Arenacross series. And fittingly enough, the team wrapped things up in style with their best weekend of the series. Not only did the team place two riders on the podium in three out of the four races but Brady Sheren had a great night on Saturday with a dominant ride to take his first win of the series. Not only did Sheren and Brock Hoyer lead a one-two punch on the podium but they find themselves sitting 3rd and 2nd, respectively in the Championship with two rounds to go. The series now takes a two month break before resuming at an all new round in Penticton, B.C.

Nex-Trax Arenacross Series Round Five

Brady Sheren in action at Chilliwack on Saturday night.

The team was back in action last night at Chilliwack's Heritage Park. Usually the series features double headers with racing on both Friday and Saturday night but this weekend they only scheduled a single race on Saturday. With the single night scheduled, the racing was intense as it was all on the line.

Brock Hoyer was the top finisher for the team with a third place finish in the Lites main and fourth in the Open main event. Brady Sheren captured a pair of seventh's while Kris Foster recovered from a wrist injury sustained during the first heat race to nurse home an eighth and ninth place finish, respectively. Now the series takes a break for Christmas and resumes with another double header on Jan 8th and 9th.

Here's a few photos from Saturday:

Chilliwack Arenacross Rounds Three and Four

Brock Hoyer debuted the big Number One plate this weekend.

Another weekend in the books here in Chilliwack and things went pretty good for the team. It would have been nice to grab a win but you can't complain when both Brock and Brady were contenders all weekend long.

Brock grabbed both heat race wins on Saturday and lead half of the Open main before finishing third. I'm sure he'd like to have his MX2 race back as he found himself laying on the ground in the first turn but still, coming back to fifth was a great ride. Brady was looking much better as well after recovering from a bout of the H1N1 virus. He remained in strking distance of the win right to the finish line during Friday's MX2 main and was running the leaders pace in the rest of the races as well. Good to see him rounding into form.

Now the guys get a month off before the series comes back for a single race day on Dec. 19. I'm sure both of them are itching to get a win before this series is over.
