#14 Jeremy Medaglia Cleared to Ride and Race this Weekend at Gopher Dunes
By Billy Rainford
#14 Honda Canada GDR Fox Racing rider, Jeremy Medaglia, was one of the riders heading into the 2016 MX2 season with aspirations of taking home a championship. Unfortunately, after an awkward fall early in the first moto at the 2nd round of Rockstar Energy MX Nationals in Nanaimo, Jeremy was forced to sit out the next 2 rounds with post-concussion symptoms.
After a one-weekend break, the series heads to the team’s home track at Gopher Dunes where it would have been a shame for them to be down a rider. Fortunately, we just learned from Team Owner, Derek Schuster, that Jeremy has been given the doctor’s OK to start riding and then race this weekend. That’s great news for Jeremy, the team, and the fans of #14!
Jeremy sits a long way from the top of the points standings after missing so many races, but, with good finishes, points will accumulate quickly. The championship may be out of the question, but a rocket-like rise in the standings is likely what we’ll see from the Kemptville, ON rider. Good luck getting back at it, Jeremy.
