In Episode #18, the CnC Crash Co. race team travels to Oahu’s North Shore to compete in the Loretta Lynn’s South West Area Qualifiers.
This is the 1st ever “Loretta Lynn – Qualifier” in the Hawaiian Islands. Dirt Wurx was contracted to build an EPIC design track, and celebrities (including Troy Lee himself) were in attendance for this amazing event.
Thanks to the “International Relations” we enjoy through TEAM GREEN, we were able to meet new friends & secure a bike for the event.
While we forced to “borrow” much of the equipment used during the weekend, it truly gave us an appreciation for what our Sponsors have provided us in Canada and the difference that these products make.
With the “very fine” red volcanic dirt, we were changing “foam” filters every practice and race; sorely missing our K&N Filters. Also, as this bike “did not” have a Rekluse EXP clutch, Trevor quickly realized difference. Stalling 3 times while cornering in ruts, it cost us a first overall and reinforced his love of the Rekluse EXP.
It was an unforgettable experience, Holeshots in both Moto’s, a 2nd place overall for the event, and an invite to the Regionals at Competitive Edge.
We introduced them to our Canadian style of riding and speaking, and they are anxious to see more riders who live in Igloos, train with Dog-Sled teams, and race on glaciers!
CnC Crash Co. would like to thank our Sponsors for your continued assistance, to the Canadian Media that support the Amateur Riders, and our friends (both old & new) that make this possible & enjoyable!
