Ogio and Dragon were featured at the free draw announcing over 20 winners
Auburn, Ontario, May 12 and 13, 2007. It was another amazing weekend for racing, we saw blue skies and the track was in mint condition. As the day went on, the track saw deep ruts in the corners, large braking bumps but the crew at Auburn Hills kept the track watered and groomed thought-out the day, making for some great battles out there. For the second round of the Ontario Provincial Championships and ANQ, the MX Mechanics’ team featured product from Ogio and Dragon, giving away over 20 prizes including bags, t-shirts, sunglasses, tear offs and hats. The MX Mechanics team, also rode hard this weekend, racing in 60 motos, with 4 podium finishes and 15 Top Ten finishes.
“This weekend the whole team rode hard. In particular the mechanics on the team kept these bikes in mint race condition”, states Ryan Gauld, Team Pro for MX Mechanics. “It’s a long series and to compete for both the national and provincial championships, running over 60 motos everything has to go right. These Yamaha four strokes are doing the job”.
