Kamloops Photo Album Presented By Canadian Kawasaki Motors Inc.

Heading into the opening round of the 2022 Triple Crown Series everyone was excited to be back out west for the first time since 2019. Between the fresh mountain air and the beautiful Whispering Pines track, Kamloops, BC was the perfect place to kick off the 2022 series. In the 450 class, Dylan Wright once again proved that he will be the rider to beat this summer as he won both motos in dominating fashion. In the 250 class, Ryder McNabb and Jacob Piccolo traded moto wins and since McNabb scored a 2-1 moto finish, he took the overall win at the opening round. It was most certainly a solid day for the GDR Honda Team and now the series moves east to Drumheller, AB for Round 2. For this week’s Photo Album will look back at some James Lissimore photos from Sunday.
