Tyler Medaglia Finishes 3rd & Kyle Regal Finishes 10th Overall at Gopher Dunes

July 17, 2015



The Rockstar Energy CMRC Canadian Nationals has started its Eastern swing with the first stop being at Gopher Dunes in Ontario this past weekend. The Parts Canada, Husqvarna Motorcycles team grew by one member as Kyle Regal headed North to Canada to test out the 250 two stroke and get familiar with the Canadian racing scene.

Both Tyler & Kyle did extremely well in the rough conditions at the Gopher Dunes track. Tyler impressed everyone by putting his FC450 out front and took the holeshot not only in the first moto, but in the second moto as well! Tyler rode strong and had the crowd on their feet cheering him on in Moto 1 as he and Cole Thopmson swapped positions and fought for the final spot on the podium. Tyler finished in 4th place in Moto 1, as well as in Moto 2 which put him in 3rd place overall for the day. Tyler had this to say about the track: “It was good to get those two holeshots, its hot out there and the track was really rough. I’m looking forward to racing closer to home next weekend in Sand Del Lee, the track is more my style and my entire family will be there so I’m excited about that!.“

A new face amongst the Canadian racing scene this weekend was TUF Racing, Rockstar Energy athlete Kyle Regal. Kyle is in Canada for the summer to experience the Canadian racing scene and try out the 250 two stroke. Parts Canada and Husqvarna Motorcycles welcomed him aboard and Kyle impressed everyone by making it into the top 10 in the MX1 class. Kyle had this to say about his first race: “I wanted a chance to try a 250 two stroke, and I also wanted to see what racing in Canada was like, so I’m excited that Parts Canada and Husqvarna invited me to do some riding and testing in Canada. I really like the bike and with a little more time on it I think my results will only improve.

I got top 10 in the MX1class which was what we were aiming to do, so for me it was a victory and I look forward to continuing with the program and improving my results as I become more familiar with the longer races, the tracks and the bike“.

Both Kyle and Tyler battled through the rough conditions and heat and the end result was a very successful weekend for Parts Canada & Husqvarna Motorcycles. The next race will take place July 12th at the Sand Del Lee National track in Richmond, Ontario.
