CGRT PODIUMS CANADIAN ENDURO CHAMPIONSHIP ROUNDS 3 AND 4!
Corner Grass Racing Team (CGRT) riders Shane Cuthbertson, Cole Dobovich, Nick Riewe, and special guest rider Bob Reed attended Round Three and Four of the 2010 Canadian Enduro Championship (CEC) series this past July 10/11th weekend in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. The event was again hosted at the APEX Alpine Ski Resort providing excellent facilities for the riders, families, staff, and spectators, as well as providing an extremely unique venue for the second stop of the series.
Shane Cuthbertson showed that he is a contender in the hotly contested E2 Pro classification aboard his Husaberg FX450 finishing second on both days. He also finished third and second respectively in the overall classification and is just seconds shy of challenging for the victory! “I rode more consistent this weekend, however still made a few mistakes which made the difference between first and second. Winning races is all that matters to me this year and I cannot wait to head east to achieve that goal!”
Special guest rider Bob Reed railed his borrowed CGRT Husaberg FE570 to third and second place finishes in the Vet Pro classification. “I think I might have to buy one of these things!” commented Reed after the event. Maybe another Husaberg convert is in our midst; either way, it was great watching this ISDE veteran chucking copious amounts of roost in the Extreme test on the mighty FE570!
Cole Dobovich again showed steady improvement in the Advance ‘A’ class finishing ninth and eleventh on the weekend. “I have learned so much the past couple weekends and am really looking forward to putting that experience to use. I really like this format and cannot wait to try it again.”
Nick Riewe put in an inspired ride on Saturday with an eight place finish in the Vet Pro classification. “I am happy with my ride, especially seeing that I have not ridden much in the last couple months.” Unfortunately, Riewe had a spectacular crash during the first Enduro Test on Sunday and although he escaped serious injury was still too battered and bruised to complete the day.
Check out the following link to some great photos of the event from our buddy Kert Broza.
