Parts Canada Walton TransCan Grand National Motocross Championship
Final day for a terrific showcase of speed & excitement at the Walton Raceway Motocross Town.
Read this amazing story from Walton Ontario “Motocross Town” in Huron East located
In the heart of Ontario’s West Coast……
When the gate dropped on the 2011 Parts Canada TransCan everyone expected the event would go as perfectly as it always does. But few predicted that it would be one of the most special weeks in Canadian sport. It was only fitting that with this being the 20th Anniversary of the TransCan, a World Champion would become a Walton TransCan Champion for the first time in history.
When World Champion Julien Bill was thinking about what he wanted to do with his racing career in 2012, it didn’t take him long to decide that he wanted to race in Canada. But in a Country that is as competitive as Canada is in Motocross, Julien knew that before he could secure a sponsor for the 2012 Canadian Nationals he first had to prove himself. So the Swiss Missile packed his bags on Monday and flew from his home near Geneva, Switzerland all the way to Walton, Ontario in beautiful Huron County. Not only has Julien Bill brought over the experience that comes with winning World Championships, but he has come to Ontario’s West Coast and embraced everything that it has to offer. On the track at Walton Raceway this week, Bill has shown the speed and smoothness that you would expect from a World Champion, off the track he has been there to offer his guidance and support to local Huron County future star Nathan Bles and a host of other future Canadian heroes. Everyone has enjoyed him being at the event as much as he has enjoyed being at it.
Competition continues Sunday with the final round of the 9 race Monster Energy Pro National series.
