Nathan Bles Returns for Moncton
The departure of MX2 rider #17 Seth Rarick from the Redemption Racing Fly Dragon KTM team left them looking for a rider to fill the vacant seat. Originally, the squad would have been Rarick in MX2 and Bayfield, Ontario’s #10 Nathan Bles in MX1. However, when Bles fell while practicing just one week before the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals were to start in Nanaimo, BC and broke his arm, the team filled his spot with current MX1 7th place rider, #761 Cade Clason.
Bles was recently released to ride and so made the decision easy for the team. Redemption Racing Team Manager, Josh Snider, said there is “no pressure on Nathan as far as results are concerned.” The team and its many sponsors are happy to have the friendly Bles back under the awning and on the track representing them.
Flights are booked and Nathan will joining the team in the east to ride the MX2 bike for a couple days leading to the River Glade National this Sunday in Moncton, NB.
How Bles will do on the KTM 250 2-stroke in the MX2 class will be interesting to watch. We’ll be sure to have chat with him as soon as we can.
