July 31, 2013 – Abbotsford Team BC is getting an assist in their trek to the Parts Canada TransCan National Motocross Championship, thanks to a sponsorship by BigSteelBox, Canada’s largest mobile storage company. Four motocross bike racers have qualified for the largest amateur motocross race in Canada and will have their bikes and gear shipped across the country in a BigSteelBox.

“To our knowledge, this is the first time a team of riders has been put together to compete in this most prestigious event,” says Dan Piccolo, team organizer. “BC has long been a hot bed of budding motocross talent, this year we have it in spades.”

Riders from across Canada and the US will gather to do battle on the grounds of Walton Raceway in the 22nd Annual Parts Canada TransCan National Motocross Championship in Walton, Ontario from August 14 to 18.

The BC racers will have their gear loaded into a BigSteelBox at the Abbotsford location and shipped to the BigSteelBox Kitchener store, where it will then be trucked out to the raceway in Walton.

“The Parts Canada TransCan Grand National is a weeklong festival of fun and excitement,” said Chris Lee, owner of Walton Raceway. “This annual celebration of motocross brings over a 1,000 riders and their families across borders and across the country to compete for Canada’s most prestigious motocross awards event.”

Four of British Columbia’s finest amateur motocross riders will race as Team BC. The team includes Julian Beneck of Maple Ridge (age 8), Jacob Piccolo of Abbotsford (age 10), Casey Keast of Kelowna (age 14), and Wyatt Waddell of Ladner (age 16).
“These four young riders have all been stars in the local motocross scene and now look to follow in the footsteps of many top professional racers like Dusty Klatt, Marco Dube, Colton Facciotti and Darcy Lange,” says Dan.

Team BC success has been made possible with support of sponsors BigSteelBox, Maple Ridge Motor Sports, KTM Canada, RMR Suspensions, H2R Fox Shox, Fox Brigade, Speed Merchant, KalGuard, X Brand Goggles, Goldentyre, Atlas Brace, and Tuff Trailer Inc.
