By Billy Rainford

If you’re looking for another great two-day event to hit this summer, be sure to head to the famed Sand Del Lee track at MX101 just outside our nation’s capital, Ottawa, Ontario, this weekend.

FXR has partnered up with Johnny Grant and the gang at one of the favourite tracks in Canada. We wanted to get a little more info on what riders can expect, so we grabbed Andy White for a quick chat, since we have him on speed dial.

Here’s what Andy had to say about the 3rd annual Sand Del Lee Cup event.

Direct Motocross: Hi, Andy. We wanted to catch up with you to ask about the Rockstar Energy Drink FXR Sand Del Lee CUP coming up this weekend. Obviously, FXR is sponsoring the event.

Andy White: This event is awesome. The guys at MX101 know how to put on a great event, and Sand Del Lee is a great track with so much history. They have been putting it on since 2015 and it’s like an amateur national. We always support the event with a ton of prizing, as does Rockstar Energy Drink. The best amateur racers head to Sand Del Lee for two days of great racing to see who is the best.

Is there anything special about this year that will happen at the event.

Well, this year, FXR is giving away a ton of prizes and giveaways, but this time we are also giving away 14 sets of gear to the best racers in certain classes each day. There are 8 sets of kids’ gear and 6 sets of adult gear. FXR is all about the amateur racers in Canada and it’s great to see MX101 make this type of give-back to the racers happen.

So, prizes and gear. FXR really likes this event!

We committed to this event early and it really showcases how amateur events can be done, caring about the racers and giving back where we can. And it is a showcase for the best racers to get noticed, and it is a great FXR event.

Thanks, Andy, for all the info.
