We were back in Chilliwack this Friday for more AX action but we ended up with a slight bump in the road for Round 4 on Saturday. During practice on Saturday a flagger came onto the track in the path of Cade Clason and suffered some substantial injuries as did Clason. Cade was released same day from hospital after being x-rayed and he had to get some stitches. The flagger was released from hospital just yesterday so good news. We never want to hear about these sorts of incidents. Unfortunately this incident resulted in the racing being cancelled for Saturday’s Round 4.  This was no doubt a weekend filled with peaks and valleys and we are glad everyone is going to be ok. Let’s move on to more positive happenings. Here’s a look at Round 3 from Friday.
