Frid’Eh Update #35 Presented by Race Tech By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford We first met Jonah Brittons a couple years back when he was an Intermediate racer out of Prince George, BC.

Last year, Utah’s Brandan Leith showed up and raced the first few rounds of the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals and did very well.
