MX Performance Magazine's Ryan Gauld places 14th in MX2 in fill-in role

Kamloops, B.C.(July 28, 2010) The Monster Energy Leading Edge Kawasaki team unfortunately was without four time moto winner, Shawn Rife, this past weekend at Ste Julie, Quebec due to a foot injury suffered at the previous round at Gopher Dunes but it opened up the chance for a unique oppurtunity for the team to let mxp magazine do a test on the ultra fast 2010 kx250f team leading edge had put together.

Former Canadian National podium finisher and now MX Performance magazine editor, Ryan Gauld, was extended an oppurtunity to ride and compete aboard the injured Rife's Kawasaki KX250F and he jumped at the chance to give it a shot. After making a few calls to line everything up, "Gauldy" as he's known in the pits showed up to Ste Julie excited to throw a leg over the powerful C4MX modified Kawasaki machine. Despite not having raced a Pro National in four years, Ryan put in respectable 14-14 moto scores for 14th overall.

Gauld had this to say about his weekend, "Man, I'm so pumped to have had this oppurtunity. I've got to give a huge thanks to Jason Hughes, Luc Caouette and Pat O'Connor for making this happen. The bike is amazing! The only problem is now I feel spoiled and I just want to keep racing it. I can't get the smile of my face!" Look for an indepth 6 page story about Gauld's weekend with the team in a future issue of MXP magazine.
