Kevin Cockayne Race Report –Round #1 of WEC Cross Country Series – Apex MotoPark Cross Country The opening round of the 2012 WEC Cross Country Championship kicked off at MotoPark near Chatsworth,ON. Sunny skys and moderate temperatures set the stage for a great race through the rugged rocks of Motopark.

Kevin Cockayne made his racing debut on the KTM 350XCF after riding a 2-stroke for many years. Picking up where he left off from last year KC hooked up off the line and took the Weiser Insurance Holeshot award. From there KC led early before having some trouble with arm pump and dropping back to 3rd position behind Josh Long and Greg Filer. Once Kevin settled in he caught back up to 2nd position and maintained a consistent gap on Long and began to close it up towards the end of the race. Unfortunately it was too late and Long took the win, followed by Cockayne and Filer. An all-orange podium!

Kevin would like to thank Bev, Jenna, Diane, Brad, Devin and Lee for their awesome race day support as well as his sponsors for their excellent products and services: Mission Cycle, KTM Canada, Race Tech, FMF, Clockwork Parts & Mods, LRP, Enduro Engineering, Motovan, Forma boots, Whitelaw Performance, and PG Graphics.

Next race is May 20th for the opening round of the OO XC series in Colborne, ON.
