Behind The Lens With James Lissimore Presented By Fox Racing Canada

It’s hard to believe that it’s been three years since we last had a Triple Crown Series AX Tour race, but this past weekend we were finally back in action in Sarnia. For this week’s Behind The Lens, I thought I’d look back through some of my images from the first two years that the AX Tour was a part of the Triple Crown Series, in 2018 and 2019, and share some of my favourites.

When the Triple Crown Series debuted in Spring of 2018, the first round kicked off in my hometown of Abbotsford, BC. Unfortunately, the dirt had as much moisture in it as you’d expect from a winter of BC rain, leading to one of the muddiest indoor races of all time.

Carson Brown took the inaugural 250 win at the Abbotsford mud race.

The Clash for Cash class pitted the top riders from both the 250 and 450 riders against each other, so you got cool battles like Colton Facciotti battling his young teammate, Dylan Wright, here in Calgary.

Cole Thompson comes out for opening ceremonies at Abbotsford in 2019.

Dylan Wright wheelies through opening ceremonies at Barrie in 2019.

There were several guest American riders who made appearances through the first two years of Triple Crown AX. Here Josh Hill battles with Mike Brown at Calgary in 2018.

Luke Renzland was another top American rider who raced the entire 2019 Triple Crown series.

There’s always close racing in Arenacross. Phil Nicoletti(54) and Matt Goerke(2) bang bars at Sarnia in 2019.
