For Immediate Release

Richmond, ON (July 23, 2019)

This past weekend featured the “Royal Distributing / FXR / Yamaha Team” as we were at the MX101 Operated facility of Sand Del Lee MX Park in the nations capital, Ottawa, Ontario.   Sand Del Lee is 50 Years Old as of 2020, so there is a ton of history there, as well as the chance to hold the “Argue Cup”, named after the facilities late founder, Dale Argue.

The temperatures and humidity have been high for weeks in the area and race day was no exception.  With humidity it was 46 degrees, or for our American friends 115, so it was going to be a test of fitness and toughness.

After qualifiers, Renzland sat just a few tenths from current red plate holder and local Dylan Wright who has been on a tear lately.  Cannella would be 6th fastest and Halstead 12th.

Moto 1 started well with all the guys in the top 10 and pushing for the front.  An early mistake left Halstead on the ground and having to start lap 2 from 38th place. Renzland would be in a 3 way battle for the lead running second most of the moto. Capitalizing on a mistake he would take the lead for a couple laps but would be passed by eventual moto winner Dylan Wright.  Luke would settle for 2nd.   Marco would push from just inside the top 10 to 6th but a mistake in the final corner would cost him a position for a 7th.   Halstead with his head down the whole moto would make passes right to the last jump and claim a hard fought 17th.

Moto 2 would see another good start for Luke and Hayden right around the top 5. Marco would have the role of catch up this time as he rounded lap 1 in 15th. Luke would move his way to the front and earn a 3rd in the moto for 3rd overall on the day. Marco pushed all moto to pass his teammate on the last lap for 8th giving him 7-8 for 7th on the day. Hayden would hang onto 9th and with 17-9 he would finish 11th.

Luke has launched himself up into 3rd overall in the Championship only a few points shy of Jess Pettis in 2nd.   The team heads for Moncton NB this weekend!
