Matt Fracy Report- April 15/ 2013: Joe Brown Memorial Trial/ Round 1 Outlaw Series /Provincial Championship
Last Sunday saw Matt celebrate his 17th birthday in great style with a confident and consistent ride to take 3rd place in the opening Round of the Outlaw Series, at the Victoria Motorcycle Club’s Joe Brown Memorial Trial.
Stamping his authority on the Expert class, Matt rode his Mountain Motorycycle sponsored Beta Evo 300 to a solid podium finish, against the top two riders in Canada, and the best riders attending from the lower mainland as well. Proving that his two previous podium placings so far this year in VMC club trials has been no fluke, Matt rode well, but consistent which was the key. A freak 45min hail storm midway through the 2nd loop proved difficult for all riders, but Matt managed to keep his cool and not let it reall affect his loop scores too much, compared to his competition. In doing so, Matt is now creeping up on the elite of riders in Canada and is now going to be considered one of them!
It was the first time this year that Matt has had a real chance to see how much all his off season training has paid off, and it has, big time! It has been quite a huge leap in progress this year for Matt. I big credit to him and his hard work. Its all part of a bigger plan for Matt, as he prepares for his most ambitious year of riding to date! May will start off with the first of 4 Canadian Nationals. Then, in June, Matt plans to take his efforts for the first time ever, to compete for the US National High School title.
A busy year for sure! A big thanks to all of Matt’s incredible sponsors, who without their support, all of this would not be possible! Thank you to: Mountain Motorcycle, Outlaw Trialsport, Tryals Shop, American Alloy, Trials Canada, R2wtrials.
