Chilliwack Arenacross Weekend One

Teddy won Friday night's Open main.

Well, the first weekend of the Nex-Trax Canadian Arenacross series is in the books and it was a pretty succesfull weekend for the team. Though a few more wins would have been nice, Teddy was pretty consistent with a win and 3 second place finishes. Brock's results didn't reflect how well he rode. His 4th on friday night and pair of 5ths on Saturday were still pretty good but he showed podium speed all weekend. Next weekend with some good starts he will be right in the mix.

The team had a great presence this weekend, we had the semi parked inside the Heritage Center with a full complement of team bikes out front. Alongside team riders Maier and Hoyer there was also Kris Foster, who was making a return to Kawasaki's after a season on KTM's and the team's new Ladies class rider Missy Hackett. Also, Kawasaki has put together a "Factory Rider for a Day" program for the arenacross series where a lucky rider is selected to pit with the team and ride a specially prepared 2009 Kawasaki motorcycle.

Now the team looks forward to next weekend, the series returns to Chilliwack for rounds 3 and 4 so everyone will be looking to build on this weekend and put more green bikes on the podium.
