Bryan Hudgin, Yamaha’s Race Director commented, “I think RJ was a little surprised last year when he realized what he had won. The prize not only includes the use of a YZ, but also access to ourgreat accessory and gear partners like AXO, One Industries, FMF, Matrix and our own Yamalube and GYTR brands, so there’s a lot of value!”


With the announcement that the award is available at the Raymond Western Canadian Amateur National (June 29 - July 2) and the Deschambault Eastern Canadian Amateur National (July 7 – 8) in addition to the Walton TransCan, Hudgin went on to talk about why Yamaha expanded the program, “The expansion now gives Yamaha riders from coast to coast a chance to earn this prize. It also shows our commitment to amateur racing and our appreciation for their business. We want our customers to know they’re always a part of the Yamaha family and hopefully this helps to do that.”
