Kade Walker Returns to Canada

By Billy Rainford

Kade Walker.

If you’re looking for an interesting Canadian motocross story, look no further than Quebec native Kade Walker.

Kade came up through the amateur ranks racing at all the big American amateur nationals. He turned Pro and then moved to Europe. He’s called Italy, German, and Holland home and speaks all the languages.

He told me this morning that he’s calling Kamloops, BC home now and has just rented a place there. He raced Round 1 of the Future West Arenacross Championships at Chilliwack Heritage Park in Chilliwack, BC, but things didn’t go his way.

He’s riding a Yamaha for Kenny McCurdy from TNT Racing Development out of Calgary.

He was 2nd to Jake Piccolo in his Pro Am Lights Heat and won his Pro Open Heat.

Unfortunately, a crash in the Pro Am Lights main has left him with a sore shoulder and he will sit out Round 2’s action this evening.

He said he will return to Kamloops to rest and be ready for the second weekend of action for Rounds 3 and 4 next week.

The motocross journeyman also said that he doesn’t have plans to return to racing in Europe and would be very interested in racing the Canadian series if he could find some support.

We’ll keep our eyes on this situation to see what develops. Welcome home, Kade.
