The first round of the 2014 Rockstar Energy Motocross Nationals is in the books. It was a beautiful sunny weekend in Nanaimo as riders adorned the pits for the first round of the Rockstar Energy Motocross Nationals. It was none other than Royal Distributing Fox KTM Racing Team rider Kaven Benoit who walked away with top honors in the MX2 Class. Kaven went 1-1, for 1st overall in Nanaimo, B.C. at the opening round of the Rockstar Energy Motocross Nationals. The MX1 class is stacked for 2014 with many riders joining the series from Canada and south of the border. As everyone in racing knows, you cannot win the series in the first round, but you sure can lose the championship. The first round of the series always proves to be quite difficult. Riders must get accustomed to new teams, motorcycles and the high level of competition. Both Tyler and Kevin are looking forward to the coming races. They mentioned that as long as they stay healthy and with a little bit of luck they believe they can walk away with great results and quite possibly the championship, come the final round in Walton, Ontario. Tyler Medaglia went 5-7, for 7th overall in the MX1 class in Nanaimo, B.C. Nanaimo remains to be one of the most challenging race tracks for Tyler, look for Tyler to improve his 7th place finish next round in Kamloops B.C..

One of the most notorious and largest desert races in North America is the Desert 100 held every year just outside of Odessa, Washington. The race draws crowds upwards of 3,000 people, and close to 2,000 racers each year and attracts Canada’s top racers. Thanks to the amazing support of my friends at Emperor Racing, and the Stump Jumpers Motorcycle Club, I was able to get on the road Friday afternoon convoying with Tom & my girlfriend Megan. The butterflies in my tummy flipped around when I had the sudden realization, that besides a short break-in ride on the new KTM, I had been without a bike and had not ridden a motorcycle since last October! I decided staying safe would be the game plan for this year’s race. Last year I won the race and Megan came in a close second, so on the way down this year we decided we would seal our fates early on by buying a giant cucumber, and break it together to see who ended up with the bigger half. Whoever got the bigger piece would win the desert 100! Megan got a giant piece and I ended up with the stub off the end so it wasn’t look good for me!
