Thats a wrap for the west series of the Rockstar Triple Crown MX Tour. We finished off the west round at McNabb Valley MX track in Minnedosa, Manitoba and word from the weekend was that the riders really liked this track. This also finishes out the Ladies nationals for the west and FXR return champion of the east, Kennedy Lutz came out and put on a clinic. Lutz walks away with the west championship and will also hang up her helmet from professional racing. All the best to your next chapter Kennedy. We take a look at some of the race action from round four through the lens of Lissimore. The nationals will swing to the east on July 7th back to one of the tracks that has been left out of the national circuit for a couple of years, Sand Del Lee. You know the MX101 boys will have the facility all primed and ready for the gate drop come July 7th. The FXR crew has something extra special planned for the Friday night. We will have the official launch of our 2019 gear line at SDL so hope to see you there!
Flawless comes to mind when you watch Kennedy Lutz race.
