Cycle North Honda Rider Ross Johnson Grabs His First Win In Chilliwack

Jeremy Medaglia still sits on top of the overall points

The Cycle North Honda team battled through another Canadian Arenacross this past weekend inside Heritage Park in Chilliwack, BC. Cold temperatures made for a little more difficult weekend for all the riders, but both Ross Johnson and Jeremy Medaglia came away with great results for the team plus overall points in this championship chase. We’re into the home stretch of the series and the Cycle North team sits in a perfect position to bring home a #1 plate.

Jeremy Medaglia 1st Overall – 324 Points – 4 Wins –
“This weekend’s racing didn’t go as planned. To be honest the results really didn’t show how my riding was. I feel some of my best AX riding was done this past weekend, but random things like hay bales on the track, and coming together with other riders put me back a few spots. It’s a part of racing though and not the end of the world. I still have the points lead so I can’t be all that upset. Only a few more rounds left to really enjoy this style of racing so time to get it done.”

Ross Johnson 2nd Overall – 323 Points – 1 Win –
“I’m not sure why it took me so long to get a win, but I’m so stoked to finally make it happen. It couldn’t have come at a better time as Jeremy had a rough weekend points wise and we’re getting to the end of this thing. I’ve been in this right from day one and now only being one point out with four rounds to go is a good spot to sit. How about the fans of the series? They’re getting treated to some great action each weekend. Plus how awesome is it Cycle North is 1-2? I’m blessed to be a part of a great team alongside a solid teammate. Bring on the next weekend.”

Cycle North Team Manager Kourtney Lloyd –
“I think I’m losing hair over the stress of all this. LOL Things couldn’t be going any better so far but having both our guys one point apart is making me shake. These guys are tough and they both want to win. Obviously either of them winning this title is what I want for the shop and all our sponsors so that all looks great right now. As the manger of two great riders it gets a little hectic in the pits. Then you add in how close the racing and points have been makes for intense weekends.”

The race action continues this weekend inside Heritage Park in Chilliwack for rounds 9-10. Cycle North is so proud of both Jeremy and Ross of their efforts thus far in Canadian Arenacross. We also have to give a big thanks to all our customers and amazing sponsors. Without you guys this would be very hard to accomplish.
