Yamaha Motor Canada Presents Behind the Lens From Walton- Day 3


Well, Day 3 at the 2018 Walton TransCan has now come and gone and what a day it was. After a few muddy motos in the morning, the Walton Raceway track was in great condition for most of the day. Thankfully, after a few big crashes on the new TransCan Triple jump, the track crew wisely got the dozer’s out and quickly removed it. The jump was cool to watch for the fans, but there is really no need to ever have a jump that large on an outdoor track. With that out of the way, everyone settled in for a great day of racing. Here are a few more photos from Day 3 at the Walton TransCan.
