Sand Del Lee
Brock Hoyer fails on this attempt to rail a berm.
It's always nice when the weatherman is wrong....
Despite calls for thundershowers all day, Sunday ended up being a great day at Sand Del Lee and the boys at MX101 did a great job of scraping off the mud from Saturday's rain. Sand always makes things easier when it comes to dealing with the wet stuff. Teddy proved that it doesn't matter if it's sand or hardpack, wet or dry, he's going to be on the podium no matter what. It's really too bad that he got hurt and missed Regina because with his consistency he'd be right there for the title when the series heads to Walton next weekend for the last round. As it was, his third overall bumped him from 5th up to 3rd in the points standings.
Brock was on fire as well. In the first moto he got a great start and ran up near the front all moto, engaged in a three way battle for the 5th spot between Joey Leadbeater and Kaven Benoit. Unfortunately near the end of the race, Brock crashed into a bail and had to settle for 7th place, still his best moto finish of the year. His 8th overall was another step up the chain and it's great to see him showing improvement every weekend. Hopefully next weekend he can keep it going, you can definitely see he's got a top 5 in him.
Now we're off to Walton where the rig is already parked in preparation for the Walton Trans-Can Amatuer National Championships. Greg Small is flying the Leading Edge banner in the Intermediate classes so look for him on the number 317 KX250F.

Brock was on it all day.
Teddy was solid as usual. If he gets a start he'll win another one of these.
