After seven summers chasing the stories on the Canadian trail, I sure do miss it. I decided to make my annual pilgrimage to the Walton TransCan to check on the National scene.

Another patented Richard Grey holeshot. I remember this kid accepting awards at the TransCan with stickers all over his arms and legs so he wouldn't forget his sponsors on the podium. Man, I'm old. Go Richard!
