2022, Canyon, February, International, Race Recap - Posted on

AZOT International Race on February 26 - 27, 2022: Looks like the majority of people who raced in the 2022 AZOT International had a great experience and left on Sunday feeling like they definitely got their money’s worth. As with any event, there were some glitches and last minute surprises, but the energetic team of volunteers and Canyon track people worked together to keep the event moving smoothly and with some intense racing excitement. There were 131 total racers, 115 Old Timers, eight 30+ Vet and eight Support Under 30, in the different classes. Most classes finished three races on Saturday...

A lot of evenly paired racers, in all classes, made for some very tight motos! First up in Race 4...

2022, January, Race Recap, Spring Series - Posted on

Canyon on Sunday, January 9: Total of 27 racers:  4 Master, 6 Expert, 10 Intermediate and 7 Novice.   It was an exciting, competitive launch of the Spring Series.  The typical 8th practice for AZOT gave riders a close-up view of Mother Nature’s gift – a pond created by the welcomed rain.  It meant they had to cut back on the long sand section at the bottom, resulting in a slightly faster lap time for all.  They did a great job of prepping the track after all of the rain and inevitable mud.    It was disappointing to find David Kennedy as...

Canyon - Sunday, November 21: Total of 23 racers: 3 Master, 4 Expert, 10 Intermediate and 6 Novice. Race 3 featured some heated battles! Ryan Pedigo (#328) held off Rick Arnold (#97) and Tee Stefaniak (#49), but then a last lap bobble from Pedigo allowed Rick to take over - another exciting Master show to the very end. Second moto Ryan jumped out to the front position and maintained it, despite Tee’s hot pursuit. Unfortunately, Rick had to leave for an emergency so he wasn’t there to compete. Expert class welcomed Jeff Neil (#40) back to the valley, escaping the...
