Kamloops, BC (June 6, 2012) – Last Saturday in Nanaimo, the opening round of the 2012 Monster Energy Motocross Nationals, set the tone for what is sure to be a captivating season, as this Saturday, June 9, the second round of nine, will take place at Whispering Pines Raceway in Kamloops, British Columbia.

Monster Energy Leading Edge Thor Kawasaki’s Matt Goerke made the first big statement of the 2012 season by going 1-1 on the day, sweeping the MX1 class. Goerke, who hails from Lake Helen, Florida, feels very confident in his off-season training, as he is happy to begin his second season of the Monster Energy Motocross Nationals injury free, unlike last year.

Behind Goerke, 2011 series champion Colton Facciotti made his debut for the KTM Red Bull Royal Distributing Fox Racing team. Facciotti battled hard in both motos, finishing in the runner-up position, going 2-2 on the day. Rockstar Energy, OTSFF, Yamaha, Motovan.com’s Bobby Kiniry rounded out the podium in third place, with consistent 3-3 moto scores.

The top three in the MX1 class will need to hold off the challenges of riders such as, Yamaha Canada Machine Racing Troy Lee Design`s Kyle Keast, Gopher Dunes Racing Troy Lee Designs Powersports Canada`s Tyler Medaglia, Monster Energy Leading Edge Thor Kawasaki’s Tyler Villopoto and KTM Red Bull Royal Distributing Fox Racing`s Dusty Klatt if they wish to remain on the podium in Kamloops.

In the MX2 class it was Monster Energy Leading Edge Thor Kawasaki’s Teddy Maier whose 7-1 moto scores were enough to put him in the points lead leaving Nanaimo. As the former 2009 MX2 Monster Energy Motocross National Champion, Maier is no stranger when it comes to handling the points lead. Maier will be consistently fast and riding smart while he’s leading the class. 

Maier’s Monster Energy Leading Edge Thor Kawasaki teammate Kyle Beaton finished second overall in Nanaimo, with 2-6 moto finishes. Beaton sits only two points behind Maier as the two teammates look to challenge each other as the series progresses. 

Rounding out the Nanaimo podium was the surprise results of Team Yamalube Blackfoot Direct Troy Lee Designs Racing’s Jared Allison. With just two years in the MX2 class, look for Allison’s confidence to be soaring as he enters Whispering Pines Raceway this weekend.

The Kamloops, Whispering Pines Raceway is one of the most challenging tracks on the Monster Energy Motocross National schedule. The facility consistently tests every rider’s physical and mental toughness with its mix of speed and technicality. The sand based track, may also bring on another challenge to riders, as similar to Nanaimo, rain is in the Saturday forecast.

Round two of the Monster Energy Motocross Nationals, from Whispering Pines Raceway in Kamloops, will commence on Saturday, June 9. Live audio coverage will begin at 8:00am local time, with opening motos starting at 12:10pm. To listen to the live audio coverage please visit: http://mxpmag.com/live-event-coverage-with-motoradio/
