The team is also excited to announce its two riders, Blake Savage of St. George, Utah, and Nathan Bles of Bayfield, Ontario.

Courtland, ON - Gopher Dunes Racing recently announced a new initiative for the 2013 race season which will see riders from across Canada join the GDR organization as amateur support riders. We are proud to announce the first rider to join our new GDR amateur program is 18 year old Konnor Long from Saint John, New Brunswick! Konnor is an up and coming intermediate rider who experienced great successes in 2012 with the highlights being a 6th place finish at Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National in C class and he followed that up with a 10th place in Intermediate at the Walton Trans-Can Canadian Amateur National.

With the additional support from GDR, and guidance of pro rider Tyler Medaglia, Konnor is determined to have a break out season in 2013 and has set a goal to win all of his Intermediate classes at the Walton Trans-Can as he prepares himself for the jump into the Pro ranks!
