This weekend we were at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta and it's a great facility. The track is right at the famous drag strip and next door to Edmonton International Airport so the location is perfect. The track itself is completely flat but the dirt is good and they've done a good job with the layout. This track is faaast though, wide open everywhere and you need a fast bike; which is good, our bikes definitely held their own against anything on the track.
Teddy is serious about being the fastest guy in the class. Though most guys would sit back and let Dean Wilson go since he was only planning on racing the first 3 rounds, Teddy was determined to get in there and race him. He even edged Wilson out in qualifying to take the number 1 spot. Then in both motos, Teddy got out front early and pushed really hard. Even after Wilson caught him, he did his best to hang with him. Teddy is never happy with second and you know he'll be gunning for the win next weekend.
Brock had a pair of comback rides. He got pinched off on the start in the first moto and worked his way up from 20th to 9th, then in the second moto he put in a great ride, coming all way back from a first turn crash to go from last to 8th.
Nick did not have the weekend he was looking for. In the first moto, some mud jammed his shifter causing the bike to be stuck in 3rd gear, which he still finished a solid 12th. Then in the second moto he crashed out. He's looking forward to next weekend, he likes the Morden track so he'll be happy to get back up and battle with the leaders.
Here's a few shots from the weekend:
