Behind The Lens Presented By Motovan- Round 3 In Calgary – Motocross Performance Magazine

As the riders entered Round 3 in Calgary all of the riders were looking forward to the final Western round of the 2023 Triple Crown Series. The Wild Rose MX track is a favorite among the riders, so it was great to see this venue back on the Series schedule for the first time since 2019.

In the 250 class, Ryder McNabb picked up right where he left off in Kamloops and took the overall win. It wasn’t easy, though, as his teammate Kaven Benoit chased him to the finish in moto one, and Mitchell Harrison got the better of him in moto two and won his first moto of the year. So far, McNabb has had the best raw speed in the 250 class, so it will be interesting to see what adjustments the rest of the field makes before Round 4 at Gopher Dunes.

In the 450 class, Dylan Wright once again took the overall win after challenges from Jess Pettis and Shawn Maffenbeier. Pettis won the opening moto and was leading moto two until Wright tracked him down and made the pass. There were some entertaining battles in the 450 class as the top four riders were all close in speed, much closer than we expected. With two weeks off, all of the riders will be going to work and trying to improve their racecraft heading into Round 4. Once again, James Lissimore was in Calgary and sent us these incredible photos. See you at Gopher Dunes!
