American Riders Making It into Canada
By Billy Rainford
It seems pretty strange that we need to be paying attention to this, but in these abnormal times, we do.
Guidelines that will allow riders from outside our borders race here stipulate that they will have to undergo a 14-day self-isolation period of quarantine. In order to get their required time in before Round 1 of the 2020 Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Tour MX Nationals at Gopher Dunes on July 25-26, that means they needed to be “in country” this past Friday.
Here’s a list of riders we know have made it into Canada:
54 Phil Nicoletti – Rockstar OTSFF Yamaha
2 Matt Goerke – Monster Kawasaki Pro Circuit
17 Cheyenne Harmon – PRMX Just 1 Kawasaki
19 Marshal Weltin – Monster Kawasaki Pro Circuit
23 Dakota Alix
26 Josh Cartwright – PRMX Just 1 Kawasaki
50 Bobby Piazza
92 Richard Taylor – Sky Racing FXR Kawasaki
123 Ryan Surratt – Sky Racing FXR Kawasaki
These are the names we know of. Now, they need to keep to themselves while trying to continue their preparations for the shortened series.
New Series Schedule (as of July 10):
July 25-26 Gopher Dunes – Courtland, ON
August 8-9 Walton Raceway – Walton, ON
August 15-16 Walton Raceway – Walton, ON
August 29-30 Sand Del Lee – Ottawa, ON
September 5-6 MX Deschambault – Deschambault, QC
