This weekend we had a combo deal that was super-sized. Both Canadian arenacross series combined their efforts and put it all into one venue. The Thompson’s AX Tour and the Future West AX Championships planned their events to be held together at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton, British Columbia. Turnout was great and James Lissimore was on hand to provide us with some shots of our athletes who were there to compete.
Alberta native, Keylan Meston waiting it out in staging.
Kyle Springman lining up for qualifier one.
Keylan Meston keeping the pace and will be moving into familiar territory next round.
Pettis was up against some stiff competition here in the South Okanogan Events Centre.
Cycle North rider Davey Fraser put in the work and is getting better each weekend on his new scoot.

Jess Pettis pulls a stoppie for the Penticton crowd.
Keylan Meston coming hot on the outside.
Pettis poured out all he had and made it on the box…just not back on the top of the box where we know he’s wanting to be.
There was a lot of bar banging in this corner. Davey Fraser keeping an eye out for a block pass.
You can bet Pettis will have his homework done for the Calgary round next weekend.
Keep an eye on Connor Paul. He’s been having such a great ride on this series. He went 2nd in AX Intermediate, 2nd in AX Lites Intermediate and 3rd in Youth in Penticton and will be on his home turf next weekend.
Kyle Springman didn’t quite have the night he was wanting and is ramped up for the next round.
Pettis continues to prove he has some mad indoor skills.
A little podium chat time with Gauldy for Jess Pettis.
Another guy from Alberta who absolutely nailed it this weekend. Teren Gerber swept the AX Intermediate, AX Lites Intermediate and Youth classes.
Pettis eyeing up the competition.
Hit the corner hard and hope the guy on the inside doesn’t have the same idea. This corner saw lots of carnage.
Davey Fraser on the hunt, picking through the pack in the Pro Open main.
Keylan Meston finishes the night with a 7th in Pro Open and a 10th in the Pro/AM Lites.
Davey Fraser goes 5th in Pro Open and 6th in Pro/Am Lites. See you in Calgary!
