Chambly, QC – After a month break in the series, Round 4 of the Triple Crown MX series is just a few short days away. The break has been positive for our riders and we are excited to have the tour in our own backyard for the remainder of the season. R4 will kick off the East Coast leg of the series at Gopher Dunes in Courtland, Ontario this Saturday, July 13th.

Both MX2 riders Tanner Ward and Jess Pettis have been training hard during the break. Time off has been particularly beneficial for Pettis as he suffered not one, but two arm injuries during pre-season training. He was far from 100% healthy during the first three rounds of the MX series. Pettis looks forward to tackling part two of the season in stronger physical condition. 

MX1 racer Cole Thompson has also been doing his homework during this much needed gap in the series. Thompson suffered a few bad strokes of luck at Round 2 and Round 3. Thompson is more eager than ever to line up at Gopher Dunes and reclaim the red plate. 

Next race: Courtland, Ontario – July 13th, 2019
