Behind The Lens Presented By KTM Canada- Calgary Arenacross

This past weekend in Calgary saw the 2023 Triple Crown Series come to its conclusion. It’s been a great series this year, and just like last year, the Nutrien Western Event Centre was the perfect venue to host the final round. The stands were packed on Saturday night, and the fans were treated to some exciting racing in both pro main events and all of the amateur main events. It was a great night of racing, with the highlight being Julien Benek’s final lap pass on Mitchell Harrison for the win in the 450 main event. In the end, Harrison won both classes, proving that he’s been one of the best indoor riders we’ve seen in Canada for some time. To wrap up this amazing 2023 Triple Crown Series, let’s take a look at a collection of James Lissimore photos from Saturday evening in Calgary.

The Nutrien Western Event Centre is the perfect venue for the Triple Crown Series.

Calgary was once again a great host for the final round.

Quinn Amyotte has to be one of the most improved riders of 2023.

With a few laps to go in the 450 main event Julien Benek caught Mitchell Harrison.

As the two riders began their final lap Benek was right on Harrison.

With two turns to go Benek made the pass and took the 450 main event win.

Although Harrison wasn’t happy, he did show some great sportsmanship while congratulating Benek.

These two have been through a lot so it was great to see them find the ultimate success in Calgary.

We all know how fast Blake Davies is, but in Calgary he showed us just how tough he is also. After crashing hard in the 250 main event, he gritted his teeth and came back out for the 450 main event.

Daniel Elmore had a solid indoor series and his results vaulted him to 3rd overall in the 450 Triple Crown Series final standings.

Other than the final 450 main event on Sat night Harrison went undefeated in the AXTour.

Just as he did last year, Harrison rode great in the three rounds of AX/SX and took home the championship in both classes.

Along with a bigger than normal floor to build the track on, Calgary also has a massive indoor pit area.

At times Sebastien Racine was blazing fast in Calgary, but he struggled to find the consistency needed to finish on the podium.

Dylan Rempel was flying in Calgary and had one of the best lap times in qualifying. He also went 4-6 in the main events which was great for the young Ontario rider.

Devyn Smith rode solid in Calgary proving that he’s also one of the most improved riders in 2023.
