    2012 HAS COME AND GONE

    Once the sun sets on the motocross season there is sadness that comes over every racer and fan. The time between the final drop of the gate to the next for us Canadians is a big gap to bridge. Its so tough for the very passionate racer to handle. We adrenaline junkies need our fix every minute. If there was one positive of having that big of a gap to next year, its that it makes us all so hungry to see what the sport will offer next. Time to think, its time to grow!!

  • A DOMINANT YEAR

    You could include this years performance by Matt Goerke with the best we have ever seen in Canada. Only Ross Pederson, JSR and Colton Facciotti come to mind when the stats line up next to what Goerke accomplished this past summer. He literally lost only three races all year: one moto in Calgary, one in Ste-Julie, and the MX1 Qualifier at the Montreal SX. He won 18 out of a possible 21 races this year, which includes all 18 motos of Monster Energy Motocross Nationals plus the heat, MX1 Main and Super Final at Montreal. Arguably, it was the most dominating performance in the history of the sport in Canada. Matt Goerke, what you did in front of thousands of MX fans across Canada this year was truly amazing. Thanks for the show!!

  • MONSTER ENERGY LEADING EDGE KAWASAKI

    When the most dominant team ever, Black-foot Racing, pulled out of the Nationals the question was, who would fill their space? KTM went out and scooped up national numbers 1 and 2 to try to become the next dominant team. In the shadows you knew the Monster Energy Leading Edge Kawasaki squad would be good, but would they win? That question was answered right from the gate drop of both the MX2 and MX1 classes in Nanaimo. Championship riders Teddy Maier and Matt Goerke took both overalls that day and never relinquished the red plates from then on. Heres the double championship winning team, proving there is no i in team.

  • CAN JEREMY MEDAGLIA

    WIN A TITLE IN 2013?

    Speed is not an issue. Determination is not an is-sue. Focus is not an issue. The bike is not an issue. All the ingredients are there to make this amazing athlete a champion, yet it has eluded him for the past few summers. Is 2013 going to be the year that Jeremy Medaglia holds up a #1 plate? All signs point to yes but only time will tell if the #12 machine in 2013 can put it all together and reach the same status his brother Tyler has in the sport that has given them so much.

    UP AND COMER

    The Parts Canada Trans Can Grand National provides us with a facility each summer to showcase the best of the best in the Canadian amateur ranks. Scott Cameron has been going to Walton for a few years. At this years event, he became the next kid to keep an eye on. Winner of the MX1 and MX3 Junior classes along with the cov-eted Bronze Boot Award, Scott showed serious skill in all nine of his motos. Its still a long road to the Pros, which he knows all too well. A good attitude and much needed focus, like you see in this picture, could carry Scott all the way to the top of the Canadian motocross rankings in the future.

    THE 50S

    Crazy parents scatter to every corner to yell, cheer, or bite their nails as their young racer takes to the track. These kids race hard just like the Pros we watch on TV and hope they will become a champion one day. This small pack of riders is what will be keeping this sport going for many years to come. The future is bright in Canadian moto.

  • TOUGH SPORT NO MATTER YOUR AGE

    Young Jesse Pettis cools off after a hard fought moto at the Trans Can. This sport is so tough regardless of your competition level or age. It beats you mentally and physically to the extreme and nearly makes you want to quit or be sick from trying so hard; only the best of the best rise to the top. Can you be one of those heroes?

    KAVEN BENOIT RECEIVED THE $500 CHEQUE FROM MXP LEADS THE WAY, a program to help Canadians travel to Steel City for an AMA Outdoor National round. Congrats to Kaven. Heres his recap of the race:

    This year I had the chance to sign up for one AMA National event. Its always tough to make a US National fit into my schedule because of our season up here in Canada. This year Steel City was the perfect fit for me so I decided to enter. Last year I tried to race at Southwick but I suffered a pretty bad ankle injury prior to racing there. I didnt make it through practice because it was hurting too much. So this year I felt pretty healthy for Steel City and I was excited to give it a shot. First of all, the track was awesome; a kind of track you cant find in our country huge jumps and hills, off-cambers all around. Of course it took me a few laps to figure out the track. Qualifying straight to the main motos took a lot of pressure off my back because I didnt want to race the LCQ. In both motos I didnt get a good start. It was so tough to get out front on that start from the outside. I wasnt very happy with my first moto because I rode tight and got tired at the end. My second moto was better. I started near the back of the pack and was making my way up. I was up to 21st but crashed in the turning double section. I finished 28-24 for 26th overall. Its not where I thought I was going to be but it was my first experience and I learned a lot from it. The next one should be better. Id like to thank the Houle family from Quebec for taking me down there and a special thanks to MXP magazine for helping out with the $500 start money.
