MX Mechanics team win Six Podium Finishes at Round One of the Ontario Provincial Championships and ANQ

MOTOVAN’S Zox Helmet draw for 5 winners with hats a T-Shirts given away both days.

Courtland, Ontario, May 5 and 6, 2007.   The weather was sunny and dry and in typical Gopher Dunes fashion, the track was rougher then anybody every saw.  This made for some great racing and testing the rider’s endurance for the long season ahead.  For the first round of the Ontario Provincial Championships and ANQ, the MX Mechanics’ team featured the new Air Attack Zox Helmet on all its riders and at the free draw table by giving away 5 helmets, hats and t-shirts.  MX Mechanics also featured its new race team for 2007, which managed 6 podium finishes and 14 top ten finishes.

“The MX Mechanics race team put on their Zox Air Attack Helmets and raced hard all weekend.” states Ryan Gauld, Team Pro for MX Mechanics.  “With the whole team racing together for the first time they managed some great overall results this weekend.  The bikes ran great, the riders all looked great in their team gear and they represented their sponsors well”.

MX Mechanics would like to thank all 500 or so participants in the Zox Helmet Draw, we gave 5 helmets away to the winners and handed out over 25 hats and t-shirts just for dropping by the tent to fill out a ballot.

Some of the notable race results from the team weekend are:

Ben Toye, 2nd overall, Supermini, 8th overall Junior 125 and 5th overall in Schoolboy

Jason Sims, 5th overall 125 Junior
