Canadian Results from the Mini O’s

By Billy Rainford

There were almost 20 Canadians racing at the Thor Winter Olympics/Mini O’s this year. I think there are two distinct attitudes you go into an event like this with: you are either there to go for top 10’s or even podiums or titles, or else you go in with the realistic goal of doing your best and using it as a learning experience. When you race at the Mini O’s, you’re going up against the best North America, and more, has to offer at the amateur level — it’s intense!

I hope everyone had fun and reached or exceeded their goals. On the other hand, if you struggled, use this as something to build on and let it increase your appreciation for those times things do go your way. This is Motocross and it’s not supposed to be easy.

Here’s a look at the Canadian results:
