MX Mechanics taking applications for 2007 Race Team Riders

MX Mechanics will be supporting up to 20 riders in 2007

Walton, Ontario, August 2 2006.  MX Mechanics is an amateur support race team designed to help amateur racers and their families, giving them a factory-like sponsorship advantage and a competitive edge only associated with professional factory riders.  MX Mechanics is pleased to announce the availability of its 2007 Rider Package for our 20 rider amateur race team with tremendous track side presence.

“We launched MX Mechanics in 2006 with a limited number of riders to work out the processes required to launch a high performance amateur race team in 2007 and it was a huge success”, states Ryan Gauld, Team Pro and Manager.  “We are now ready to expand the team to 20 riders and are offering two service levels.  We know this offering is going to give these riders a huge advantage at the track and in the sport of motocross preparing some of them for their Pro career”.

The two levels of support are as follows:

Level 1: Race Day Support, $5,000 annual fee:

  • Provides race day mechanics support, including top level mechanics to ensure the bike is set and ready to race
  • Race day support for the  Seven Ontario Provincial Rounds, the 4 ANQs, the week at Transcan and The Fox Fall Series, in the Southwestern Ontario Club
  • Provides Pro instruction and support on race day
  • Access to all the sponsors products discounts and free product
  • Access to dealer discount on motocross bikes and hard parts

  • All mechanics work done by MX Mechanics included in the fee
  • 4 Jersey printings and bike graphics included

“Our goal is to slightly reduce the cost of racing, but dramatically increase the service levels, making the race experience a great one” states Ryan Gauld.  “When you combine the discounts from our sponsors and the bundled services provided to the racer we can match or slightly reduce your all in costs of racing while having fun.”

With the service being provided and knowing that the bike is tuned exactly to the riding style of the racer, your young rider will be safer out there, and be able to perform at the top of their ability.  This service also reduces the amount of running around every family does to get ready for these races.  MX Mechanics wants the families to show up at the racers and enjoy themselves without the worry of fixing bikes, parts, setup and coaching/mentoring.  Our goal is to make this a fun and rewarding experience for the young amateur racer and create an environment that builds the racers self esteem and team skills.

MX Mechanics is now accepting applications for the 2007 race season and expects to conclude the race team selection process by October 30 2006.  All parts, clothing and bikes will be ordered in November for January delivery and the MX Mechanics’ will be setting up bikes from January to March to get ready for the Florida training camp.

If you are interested in receiving the product program description please email Ryan Gauld at and we will forward the information immediately.  We are also planning to schedule meetings to discuss the program in more detail at the Transcan, so drop by the MX Mechanics Rig to meet with the team.
