Frid'Eh Update #21 Presented by Mongoose Machine
Week #21 belongs to Alberta's Parker Allison.
Hello and welcome to the DMX Frid’Eh Update #21 Presented by Mongoose Machine. When we’re dealing in numbers in and around the 20 mark, you know we’re going to bump into an Allison or two. #21 for 2014 is the older of the two twins, Parker Allison. As a member of ‘the hardest working family in Canadian moto,’ Parker has become a fixture on our scene over past few years and the news that we won’t be seeing the entire group of moto gypsies crossing the country this summer has hit me a little hard.
For 2014, the newly-graduated Allison will only hit races that are closest to his home in Alberta. He has still kept his loyal group of sponsors and will race the provincial series in an attempt to spread the moto word and support the companies who have supported him and his brother, Jared, over the years.
The pits just won’t be the same without walking past the Allison RV and having matriarch, Lorri, popping her head out of a window and offering a piping hot cup of coffee in the morning or a steaming plate of delicious food at the end of the day of racing. It’s the end of an era that just doesn’t sit well with me.
The pits will seem a little emptier this summer without these guys.
Fortunately, it has been confirmed that the family will still play host to the traveling brotherhood of the motocross pants during the week between Calgary and Regina. Please, confirm your reservation with a family member and don’t use that last sentence to book your spot in the yard! I’ve always found that te nicest people you know also have the potential to get the angriest and I don’t want to put another one of my flimsy theories to the test with these people.
You’re always in for a good time when you hang out with this group. Parker is still trying to get into Veterinary School. I assume that is why they played a trick on me a few years back and took me to see something no city slicker is prepared for. I guess the bottom line is that the rancher needs to know is his main bull’s ‘boys can swim,’ and that means testing said boys. Yep, you see where this is going, don’t you? Suffice it to say I’m scarred for life but not so badly that I can’t laugh about it.
We can still have some with 'Benny' and the gang at their farm after the Calgary round.
We caught up with Parker to find out what life has in store for him. Here’s what he had to say:
Hi, everyone. I just completed school for the summer a couple weeks ago and Yamaha sent out a 450 and a 250. Jared and I have been doing a lot of testing, riding, and training for our summer program. We have our dirt race this weekend but out first national will be Calgary. We decided for this year to take a step back from the national series and do local races and riding schools.
I am very surprised at the amount of pressure that has been taken off us because we don't have the crunch before the first national. Jared has been staying very busy working downtown and every day I pick him up from the train and we head down to Wild Rose MX Park. It works really good.
I just became a distributor/dealer for Evans Waterless Engine Coolant so I have been busy doing that. If you are unsure of what Evans is, Google it and contact your closest dealer (Blackfootdirect) or contact me on your way through Calgary to Naniamo. (Shameless plug, Parker!)
For 2015, Jared and I are still planning on doing the whole series again and we are very fortunate that our sponsors have remained on board with us through 2014. I can't wait to see everyone between Calgary and Regina at our place.

This week's Update is presented by Mongoose Machine.
Thanks, Billy, and yes, we’re only two weeks away from the start of the best series Canadian motocross has seen in a long time. Every year we say that the year has flown by and we’re here again but this year has something special about it: A new title sponsor in Rockstar Energy, a revamped schedule with two new tracks on it and, of course, huge names like Mike Alessi, Kyle Chisholm, and Vince Friese coming up to take on Canada’s Colton Facciotti and Tyler Medaglia, among others. We have two rookie sensations in Dylan Wright and Westen Wrozyna and all we can do from here on out is sit back and watch this fairy tale unfold and wait for the victor to raise the #1 plate at Walton.

Prairie Hill MX School with Team Riders Ryan Millar and Kyle Swanson
I also see that the Prairie Hill MX team of Ryan Millar and Kyle Swanson are holding an MX School this weekend at the Prairie Hill track in Pilot Mound, Manitoba.I saw this posted by Prairie Hill MX owner Kyle McCannell:

Women’s West Series
We don’t want the women’s series to get lost in all the excitement of the ‘who’s coming to Canada’ in the men’s classes so we grabbed co-organiser, Camille Bunko, for a very brief chat. Round 1 for the women will take place Sunday June 1st at The Wastelands I Nanaimo, BC following the men’s racing on Saturday. Last summer, both sides of the women’s series were dominated by two women who very nearly qualified for the men’s racing too. Devil’s Lake rider Hailey Larson crushed the west and Sewer Rat’s Jacqueline Strong killed it in the east.
Speaking of Hailey, her and fellow Devil's Lake team rider/bf, David Gassin, are always putting together these fun road trip videos. Here is their latest that chronicles their latest drive from California to Canada:
Camille said, “I think we are all ready! We will be sending out a press release in the next few days with all the details on it!” The women are a very keen group and are working hard to keep their racing at the front of race fans’ minds as we head into another season that will see the Pro women compete on the amateur days at select rounds on both coasts.
I asked her how the competition is stacking up for the western swing and she said, “Hailey Larsen will be the one to beat, I'm sure. (Yorkton, SK’s) Kennedy Lutz will be riding the women's west series and I have heard she rips so hopefully she will have something for her! Rachel Springman was up riding at the track last weekend and was going really well too so we should have some good competition this year!”
The women’s racing is always the main focus on the amateur days and they receive a lot of support from those in attendance. Not to mention, they always have a very spirited awards ceremony afterwards. If you are interested in getting involved at any level of support, I’m sure Camille would be more than happy to hear from you and your company. Get in touch with her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Click HERE to see the latest PR on the series.
Will Kennedy Lutz have anything for two-time defending champ, Hailey Larson, in 2014?
Round 1 at The Wastelands
Speaking of round 1, don’t forget that the men’s racing is on Saturday, May 31st! Also remember that Saturday night will be a party with some great bands playing! Tokyo Police Club, Yukon Blonde and We Hunt Buffalo will all be performing. It’s been a while since the Rockstar Energy Canadian MX Nationals have put together these celebrations so it will be great to see them return at a few of the rounds again in 2014.
Here’s a TPC song:
And here’s a Yukon Blonde song you may recognise:
Kudos to the gang for trying to add more spark to the series.
Prairie Hill Team
We’ve been hearing about this new team for some time now and it’s really cool that there will be another track-based team running the Canadian nationals this summer. Kyle McCannell is the man behind the whole thing. He is a hard-working farm guy out in the southwest corner of Manitoba. The Prairie Hill track is located in Pilot Mound just about 30 minutes from the Morden trck tht used to host a round of our nationals.
Manitoba’s Ryan Millar will be the team’s MX1 rider on a KTM 450 and Texan Kyle Swanson will ride the MX2 class on a Honda. We all know how much natural talent (Hell, I went out on a limb and said he is probably the most naturally-talented Canadian rider ever!) Ryan has and Kyle proved he has the speed to compete for wins last year when he was even packing his own gate! These are two of the nicest guys on tour so we all wish them success this summer. You can read the interview we just did with team owner, McCannell HERE.
Jeremy Medaglia/SmarTop MotoConcepts
The obvious elephant in this Update room is the Jeremy Medaglia/SmarTop MotoConcepts story from this week. We spoke to both team manager Tony Alessi and Jeremy this week to get both sides and it seems like it was a classic case of miscommunication mixed with some he said/she said. According to Tony, Jeremy just went AWOl and was a “no show” at the planned final testing days out in California. Well, Jeremy said his concern was the fact that he didn’t seem to be getting any closer to the dangling carrot/contract and so was forced to take care of himself and look for other avenues that would see him make the starting line in Nanaimo in two weeks. You can read the Tony Alessi article HERE and read the Jeremy Medaglia interview HERE.
As the old saying goes, there are always two sides to the story and the truth is usually somewhere in the middle. I guess the middle of this one would be that the contract was still being solidified but that is a scary place to be if you are a professional racer who is planning to take a run at a championship. If I was to sit on the fence here, I can understand that the STMC team doesn’t have a race schedule set in stone for the year and so it is difficult to draw up a contract that they will be able to stick to. On the other hand, as a racer, how do you go into a season unsure of whether you will be competing in a complete series or not? You can’t.
The end result of all of this is that the STMC team has picked up rider Vince Friese to race their MX2 Honda at round 1 in Nanaimo. Of course, with Monster Energy Kawasaki rider, Ryan Villopoto, out of the AMA series, this really could be a great year for Mike Alessi to finish at or near the top in the Lucas Oil AMA series. From what I could gather, the Alessi camp isn’t even 100% sure what they will be doing the Monday after round one in Nanaimo. That’s great for them because they are a team and can make decisions that best suit them and Mike, but it is not a comfortable place for a Canadian racer to be.
Get a good look at Mike Alessi in Nanaimo because who knows where he will be the rest of the summer.
Kourtney Lloyd and Cycle North
Left out in the cold in all this is poor Jeremy Medaglia. I alluded to the possibility of Cycle North rethinking their departure from full-time support of a Pro in Canada and so I grabbed co-owner, Kourtney Loyd, for a talk about that subject today. They will, potentially, already be hitting a couple of the western rounds with Washington rider Ross Johnson on a Husqvarna 450 so maybe they could load up a couple Husky 250s too?
Since I mentioned her and Cycle North’s name in my interview with Jeremy, I figured I should really speak with her before I assume too much…again. According to Kourtney, the plan this summer is to hit round 2 in Kamloops for sure with Ross on the Cycle North TLD Husky. They will miss the first round in Nanaimo to save parts and allow Ross to team up with Tyler Villopoto at a motocross school in Washington State that same weekend.
They will consider continuing on to Calgary for the 3rd round but nothing is finalized as of now. Ross will compete around BC in the Pro class in the provincial scene. All of this racing is in preparation for another attack on the Future West Kawasaki Canadian Arenacross Championships in 2015. Ross will also travel around and hit as many weekend fair races he can to help make some cash. There is even the chance that if the schedules allow it they will compete in the West Coast SX Series.
I hope I’m not breaking this news when I shouldn’t be, but Kourtney mentioned that Ross and his girlfriend are expecting their first child November 4th, so a big congratulations to both of them on that!
Soon, Ross Johnson will be proud of TWO babies. Congrats, guys.
When I asked her about whether any of this meant there was room for Jeremy Medaglia, she was quick to point out that they would love to be involved with him again, if it came to that. She said that the AX bike is still there and that if he doesn’t have anything else lined up by the time we get to Nanaimo that he is more than welcome to ride it. I didn’t realize this, but Kourtney is also Jeremy’s agent. Jeremy has a couple offers on the table at the moment and is probably staying as far from his phone as he can right now. It’s good to know that it looks like the gate won’t be missing the #4 when the season starts.
PS Can you believe there's a guy somehow still involved in our great sport that actually told Kourtney she and Cycle North are "irrelevant in Canadian moto"??!! Time to go, pal!
Shawn Robinson and Team MX101 Yamaha
With all the hype surrounding rookie Pro, Dylan Wright, and returning fast American rider (and new team member), Jesse Wentland, it somehow got past me that my dark-horse pick from the past couple years, Shawn Maffenbeier, is set to ride a Yamaha 250 2-stroke in MX2 this season!
Shawn said he made the decision this past winter when he got the chance to ride it. He feels he is very good on the bike although he admits he never raced one before—he went straight from Intermediate to 450 Pros. In the past, the things holding him back were fitness and injuries. He has now become a cycling maniac and is apparently a very good TT rider! If you know anything about Shawn, it’s that it could be 33 degrees C out and he would still be found walking around in jeans. Well, I ribbed him about that today and he said he actually bought 6 pairs of shorts down south. All that cycling gives you nice legs so I’m sure he’s ready to show them off this summer, so watch for that.
If you're a photographer having a bad day, point your camera at Shawn Robinson and be cheered up immediately!
Redemption Racing Has Some Big News—No Gavin Gracyk and a Big Rig
Redemption Racing team co-owner/manager, Josh Snider, lives nearby in London but spends most of his off-season time working in the oil patch out west. I’d heard rumours that the team had acquired a semi truck for this season so I gave him a shout to get the story. I also wanted to talk about their decision to go with an all-2-stroke team for 2014.
I caught Josh up at his parents’ place north of the city putting new tires on their RV. The team will consist of returning rider, Eric Jeffery, and American rider, Seth Rarick. Hmm, I wondered if I would find a certain name missing from this roster. It turns out that Gavin Gracyk will not be racing our nationals with the team this summer.
Gavin will stay down in Georgia where he has been running a successful personal training business. He won’t be doing much racing this year and will concentrate on family and his business. Good luck, Gavin. We’ll miss you around the track. Who else am I going to find that can throw a football back and forth like you?!
Eric Jeffery continues his commitment to the team and the nationals in 2014. He showed signs of his true potential last year and I always said that if he can keep his aggressiveness at a high level, he may shock some people.
Seth Rarick joins the team after hitting some races last season. Seth has been on a 2-stroke since shortly after Walton last summer and has really taken to it. He had never ridden one before and says he really likes it. He underwent shoulder surgery in the off-season and has been back on the bike since April 1st. He spent some time at Club MX and said he has never felt this confident before. Josh added that Seth is a perfect fit for the Redemption team.
Seth Rarick will join the Redemption Racing team in replacement of Gavin Gracyk.
New this year will be a fully-functioning shop in the new rig they acquired from California. The trailer is being picked up from Toronto Digital Imaging as I type so watch for photos of the new rig soon here on DMX. Head mechanic, Chad Goodwin, will team up with Josh and run trackside support doing full suspension work and some engine stuff for amateurs and pros under the name ‘Redemption Racing Development.’ Chad brings 20 years of experience to the table. Watch for a full Press Release on this new venture in the days to come.
