Behind The Lens From Manitoba Presented By Fox Racing Canada

So far in 2022, the riders in the Triple Crown Series have had to face three different tracks all with completely different conditions. Kamloops was sandy, damp, and rough. Drumheller was hard-packed and baked, and then this past weekend Round 3 was tacky and the temperatures were HOT! And we mean hot as in you wanted to stay indoors or go out and find a lake or pool to swim in. However, the Triple Crown Series riders had to gut it out and race two hard motos. In the end, it was Dylan Wright who came out on top in the 450 class, and for the second week in a row, it was Mitchell Harrison who was victorious in the 250 class. It was a challenging day of racing in Manitoba and now the riders and teams have a weekend off before resuming their series at Walton Raceway on July 3rd. For this week’s Behind the Lens, we go back to Pilot Mound and some incredible photos by James Lissimore.
