MX Mechanics racers have a break out weekend and Zox Helmets are a hit
It was an absolutely fabulous weekend at Gopher Dunes for the first round of the Motovan.com Provincials. The weather was definitely on our side. This also marked the first 2 day event for the year. It was so relaxing all weekend long. Frank and Digger and the rest of the Gopher crew did a remarkable job on keeping the track maintained and in great shape for all the races.
The MX Mechanics team had a draw for two Zox Momentum helmets and eight Tee Shirts. It was a success and tons of entries were in the ballet box. On Saturday it was Eric Neilson who took home the big prize, a Zox Momentum R Helmet. Then Sunday we did it all again and Ellie Kavanagh took home a brand new Zox Momentum R Helmet. Zox Tee Shirt winners on Sunday were Chris Lupel, Bobbie Davies, Jason Simms and Brandon Zaccagnini. Congratulations to all the winners and special thanks to all the racers and their families for stopping by the MX Mechanics/Boston Pizza Tent for participating in the draw.
The team was very pumped coming into this weekend. All the boys were looking for strong finishes and that’s what they got. In the 80cc 12 – 16, Ben Toye rode his YZ 85 to a top 5 finish for the first time this year. Steven Azarkiewicz and Myles Bartholomew piloted there bikes into 10th and 11th respectively. The boy’s results just get better and better. Way to go guys!
In the Super Mini class Ben Toye continued to move up the ladder and get closer to his goal which is the podium spot. Ben went 4 – 4 moto scores for 4th overall. Myles Bartholomew again was on the gas. Myles had a trick up his sleeve on the starts and pulled a couple huge hole shots. He went 13 – 10 in both motos and finished 12th overall. The boys are looking forward to Auburn this coming weekend which is the second round of the Motovan.com Provincial Series.
The leader of the team Ryan Gauld had a great weekend. He did not ride all week due to the soreness in his chest so he just showed up and winged it all weekend. On Saturday he rode the +25 class and continued his provincial’s streak. He won both motos and his streak is now at 14 first place finishes.
Then Sunday rolled in and he was pumped for the Pro class. Names like Kyle Keast, Ryan Lockhart, Gavin Gracyk, Trevor Hall, Pierce Chamberlain, and many more lined up for some great racing. In 125 moto 1 Gauldy pulled a huge hole shot on his Bondi Engines YZ 250F and never looked back taking the win. In the first 250 moto it again was Gauldy leading the pack after Gracyk crashed in the back section. Gauldy and Lockhart battled till the checkers. Lockhart took the win and Gauldy was second.
Moto #2 for the Pro 125 class was the same thing. Gauldy came out second to Lockhart and made an awesome pass in the back and was pulling away. Unfortunately, he then crashed in a sweeper and could not get his bike going giving him a DNF for the moto. The last Pro 250 moto of the day was the toughest. The track was the roughest it has ever been. Gauldy took a 3rd in the moto and tied for the overall but took 2nd for the day.
It was an awesome weekend for Zox and the MX Mechanics squad. Way to go Team!
