After the scorching temperatures of Round One in Kamloops, hopping on the ferry and heading to the island meant the cooler days for Round Two in Nanaimo, BC. With a few pitfalls, some of our riders pushed through despite injury and proved their worth. Here is a look at some of the FXR athletes who put down the laps at the Wastelands this past weekend.
Clean sweep for Women’s points leader Sara King.
#50 Shelby Turner went 2-2 for 2nd overall.
Kamloops, BC native Jamie Munro went 6-10 for 8th overall in the Women’s Pro race on Saturday.
#87 Kyle Springman went 17-20 for 19th overall in MX2.
Keylan Meston #28 had things dialled in on Sunday and went 9-9 for a 7th overall.
#28 Keylan Meston will be on his home turf next weekend when the nationals roll into Calgary.
Meston on the line.
#20 Jess Pettis had his shares of ups and downs this weekend.
Pettis was lucky to walk away from an unavoidable crash that left him sidelined in the first moto.
Pettis set the fastest lap times in qualifying.
#20 Jess Pettis came back strong in the second moto and went 4th for a 12th overall for the day.
Jason Abernethy #98 finished the day going 18-35 for a 25th overall.
#35 Hayden Halstead was the one member of the MX101 squad that didn’t get roughed up in moto 1.
Halstead went 15-18 for a 17th overall.
#35 Halstead will also be piloting the MX101 rig to and from the national rounds as well as being one of their riders.
A collision with a downed Jeremy Medaglia left #17 Dylan Wright with an injured foot.
Wright managed to squeeze his swollen foot back into his boot to head back out for moto 2.
Good news is that Dylan Wright’s foot isn’t broken but badly bruised. He went on to complete the second moto and land himself back on the podium finishing 3rd for a 12th overall.
Dylan Kaelin #324 put on an impressive ride in Nanaimo going 6-7 to finish with a 5th overall.
Another noteworthy ride came from East Coast, Freedom Cycle rider, #36 Davey Fraser. He went 9-10 for a 7th overall.
