Wild weekend for Kiniry, Maffenbeier, and Grey at Gopher Dunes

PRESS RELEASE -- Vaughan, ON July 15, 2013

Round 5 of the CMRC Nationals at Gopher Dunes in Courtland on Sunday was blessed with one of the sunniest and hottest days of the summer so far in Southwestern Ontario. At least that would be the prognosis of anyone who spent the day in the comforts of an air-conditioned home or a swimming pool.

Gopher Dunes, which is a little short on shade trackside, felt like a broiler and combined with the deep sand and numerous jumps, taxed even the fittest riders. For all but the top contenders, just finishing two motos was an amazing feat. There was plenty of attrition in both the MX1 and MX2 class, either due to exhaustion or technical problems.


For Team Rockstar Energy/OTSFF/ Yamaha/Motovan.com’s Bobby Kiniry, Shawn Maffenbeier, and Richard Grey, it was business as usual, albeit a bit tougher than usual. All three riders held up their end by giving it 110%, despite the heat, with Kiniry being the recipient of the best results. The New York native recorded fourth overall on the strength of 7-3 motos in MX1.
