Everyone here at MX101 wants to send out a big congratulations to all the amateur racers from our area that raced in Walton. Just finishing motos in motocross is a huge challenge, and this year it was even tougher than usual! Rain poured down at various times during the week, with Saturday turning into an absolute slopfest! The Walton crew did as much as they could, but this is not your typical sport – this is Motocross! If you were among the racers this week, you proved once again the Motocrossers are the real extreme athletes in the world! Hopefully we will see you at the MX101 Ironman Race on September 6th, and maybe even at the next Walton TransCan! We have so many great riders in our area that is is impossible to mention everyone. Please take the time to write up your Walton story and we will make sure we add it to the the MX101Life.com website. Check out all the Walton Results at: http://walton.tracksideresults.com/class.asp Connor Arsenault won the MX1 Junior title and got 3rd overall in MX3. If he did not go down while in 3rd place in one of the MX2 motos, Connor may have even won the Alpinestars Bronze Boot. That’s Moto, and that’s Walton! Tough as nails, even on a tough kid like Connor! Connor got on the box 6 times and we know his family is really proud of him, as is everyone at MX101!

Reese Rendall for Thomas Rendall Today was another mixed day at Walton. 1st up was 85, a poor start due to 32nd gate pick. Thomas is not afraid to pick his way through riders and magically he was running top 10 and pushing hard, next thing he knows was side lined with mechanical. He went back to the trailer and relaxed and was pumped for 65. He went out first on the hot lap and was pumped. Holeshot and riding fast pulling away. Pushed hard and swapped back and forth in 1st/2nd then running in 3rd. Then on final lap he gets caught and is in a fight for 3rd. He enters a rut and the shifter drags and shifts to a higher gear and the bike bogs and the guy takes the lead. Then he chased back and pressured him and took another inside line only to have the rut blow his feet off the pegs and shifter gear up again. He got gapped and took 4th. Boy he was pissed off. He is now focused on a tomorrow.
