TYLER MEDAGLIA FINISHES 5th & KYLE REGAL FINISHES 11TH AT SAND DEL LEE MX NATIONAL!

The Rockstar Energy CMRC Canadian Nationals made its customary stop at the Sand Del Lee National track this past weekend. Parts Canada Husqvarna Motorcycles riders Tyler Medaglia & Kyle Regal were both impressed with the layout and condition of the track. Kyle Regal being a newcomer to Canadian racing stated that he is impressed in general with the venues and calibre of racing in Canada.

Tyler finished 4th in moto 1 and had a great ride battling with Brett Metcalfe, however moto 2 would present more of a challenge for the mx veteran. Current points leader Matt Goerke and Tyler had the announcer and the crowd watching every move as the two battled for nearly half of the race for the third spot on the podium. Tyler held on for a long time but eventually Goerke got by. Tyler continued to ride smooth and strong but it seemed the earlier battle with Metcalfe & his battle with Goerke had tired him out. Tyler finished in 5th place with an impressive ride. Tyler said after the race “I didn’t rest or recover well enough after moto 1, and then the battle in moto 2 drained me and I didn’t have much left after Goerke went by. I expect more of myself so I was dissapointed because I know I could have done better. Next weekend is a fresh start.“

Newcomer Kyle Regal, a TUF Racing rider and Rockstar Energy athlete rode well during moto 1 and 2 but had some struggles of his own to overcome in moto 2. Kyle got caught up in the start gate and had a lot of work to do on the TC250 two stroke if he wanted to catch up to the pack. : “I just kept it pinned the whole time, around every corner, I don’t know if I’ve ever ridden that fast!“ was Kyle’s response after questioned about his comeback from last to 11th place in the last moto. Kyle is enjoying his time on the two-stroke and only becomes more familiar with Canadian racing and the bike as time continues.

It‘s expected that Kyle will continue to stir things up with each National he attends on the Parts Canada Husqvarana TC250.

Both riders fought the heat and humidity and made it through a long day of racing. This week they will recover and train for the next stop in the Rockstar Energy Motocross Nationals in Deschambault Quebec this weekend.
