Profile of Logan Gallant Story and photos by Paul Jordan
Like many kids racing today, Logan Gallant was inspired to start racing after watching Ricky Carmichael and Jeremy McGrath on television. The Nova Scotian has had an impressive couple of years in the School Boy and MX 2 Junior classes, finishing first several times and usually in the top three, in the Atlantic CMRC motocross series. Out of all the tracks in the Atlantic Region, Clyde River Motocross Park in Nova Scotia is his favourite.

Logan began riding at the age of four and now at 14-years-old rides a KTM 150SX two-stroke as part of the Wide Open Racing Team from Halifax, NS. Recently, he has been given the nickname ‘holeshot king’ for getting three holeshots in one day. This year he finished third overall in the School Boy class in both the Spring and Fall Series. In the MX 2 Junior class he finished second overall in the Spring Series and third overall in the Fall Series. Both of those classes are very competitive, and to finish consistently in the top three, speak volumes about his talent and abilities.

In terms of the future, he is focussed on becoming a pro, just like his motocross idol Ricky Carmichael. One day he would like to travel across Canada as a pro in the CMRC national series.

When he is not racing or practicing, he can be found racing his BMX with his buddies at the park, or at home eating his favorite food, bacon. In the winter, he loves to ride his snowboard at one of the local ski hills, either Wentworth or Martock.

He would like to thank his mom and dad for all the support they give him and a big Thanks to David and Chris Estabrooks and the whole Wide Open Racing Team as they have provided him with lots of support over the past two years. 

His sponsors include Kermaxx Performance Parts and Accessories, Pro Wheel Racing components, Printwerx, Estabrooks Bracing Solutions, Freedom Cycle, Forma boots and Inside MotoX & Off Road Magazine.
