Walton TransCan | The Spotlight is on Canadian Motocross
Attending iconic motocross races such Walton is an investment of time, money, energy and resources. For the racers themselves, sponsors and their families there are many sacrifices that are made behind the scenes in chasing the dream of becoming a champion. It is not always easy to deal with the many challenges the sport can place on all.
To make it to the Walton Grand National Championship at Walton there is a sense of accomplishment lining up behind the gate. Canada’s motocross industry, as well as US industry leaders and national media, will be watching and sharing the Walton experience.
