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.

Brock Hoyer had a solid weekend to kick off the 09-10 AX season
Well, the first weekend of the 2009-10 Nex-Trax Canadian Arenacross series kicked off this past weekend at Chilliwack, B.C.'s Heritage Park. The team was out in full force with an All Canadian lineup featuring last year's Lites class Arenacross Champion, Brock Hoyer, as well as Kris Foster and Brady Sheren. With the semi parked inside the Heritage Park's indoor pit area, the team was major focus of attention and fan favorite.
Brock showed right from the first gate drop why he was a champion last year as he, along with Cole Siebler and Kyle Beaton showed to be the class of the field and dominated the podium in all four main events. Unfortunately for Brock, a start gate mishap meant an early jump and a five position penalty for himself and race winner Beaton, bumping his second place finish down to a sixth. Aside from that one dark spot an otherwise succesfull weekend.
The other two riders were in the mix as well, with Kris Foster winning the Head to Head race on Friday night and pocketing the cash. Still recovering from a bad case of the flu, Sheren rode to a pair of fourths in his debut for the team.
Here's a few shots from the weekend.
