Behind The Lens From Sand Del Lee Presented By Fox Racing Canada

Over the years the Sand Del Lee National has provided some of the best racing of the year. Whether it’s the layout, the soil, or the fact that everyone seems to get excited when they travel to our Nation’s Capital, the SDL National is always a memorable one. This year was no exception as we watched riders like Ryder McNabb, Mitchell Harrison, Sebastien Racine, Dylan Wright, and Tyler Medaglia battle hard all day long. All day long the weather was hot and muggy and the conditions really tested the riders as they competed in the sixth round of the Triple Crown Series. In the end, it was Ryder McNabb taking the win in the 250 class while Dylan Wright took his sixth overall win in a row in the 450 class. Now the series continues its march east for the first time in three years as Riverglade Raceway will host Round 7. But before we move on to beautiful New Brunswick let’s go back to SDL and some incredible James Lissimore photos.
