Monster Energy Leading Edge Kawasaki takes win at Penticton Arenacross
Kyle Beaton grabs win in Saturday’s Lites main event at round one of Canadian series
Kamloops, BC(November 14, 2011) The 2011-12 Future West Canadian Arenacross series kicked off this past weekend at Penticton, British Columbia’s South Okanagan Events Centre and the Monster Energy Leading Edge Kawasaki team was back in action with multi-time Canadian Arenacross champion, Kyle Beaton.
For Beaton, it was a great chance to get some more seat time as he works his way back from major knee surgery that forced him to miss the entire 2011 outdoor season. Beaton proved that his form is coming back nicely as he grabbed the first heat race win on Friday before waging a great battle with Kyle Keast in the Lites main event, eventually finishing second. He continued his strong riding on Saturday as he grabbed the win in the Lites main event. Then in the Open main he was working his way into second when he went down while trying to make a pass on Keast.

Said Beaton of his weekend, “It went pretty good, got a win and won some motos. Just struggled with starts. I’m a little rusty after sitting out for so long but I know what I need to work on. The bike worked amazing, big thanks to the team. I’m glad we were able to stay safe and move on to the next challenge.”
With the Penticton arenacross race in the books, that concludes the 2011 season for the Leading Edge team. We’d like to give a huge thanks to everyone who made
2011 a banner year for the team and can’t wait to make things bigger and better in 2012.
