Monster Energy/Thor/Leading Edge Kawasaki at Nanaimo

Teddy gets some TV time with the Monster Girls

Last weekend found the team at Nanaimo BC at the Wastelands Motocross track. With the Leading Edge shop being based in Kamloops this was like a hometown race for everyone and there were lots of family and friends hanging out all weekend.

Also the race would mark the national debut of Leading Edge's intermediate rider, Kohl Canaday and he was solid in his first race, qualifying and even scoring a few points with a 17th in the second moto.

Hometown advantage seemed to work out, even though Nick had never raced here before all three riders placed in the top 10, with Teddy landing on the podium in 3rd and Nick and Brock finishing 5th and 9th respectively. All in all a pretty good day considering Teddy's ankle is still hurting and Nick had troubles in both motos, everyone really rode with a lot of heart today. Brock's second moto holeshot was a thing of beauty, if he can keep doing that there's no reason he can't continue to run up front.

All three riders have stayed out this week and are up in Kamloops at the Leading Edge shop, riding and getting ready for next weekends round in Edmonton. Look for a few photos of that later in the week. For now here's a few shots from Nanaimo.
