Marco Cannella ripped his YZ125 through the Walton Transcan in Walton, ON to take home a Yamaha Factory Ride for the 2015 race season!
The 14 year-old from Waterdown, ON dominated by going 1-1-1 in Schoolboy 1, Schoolboy 2 and MX2 JR. Cannella won an impressive eight out of nine motos. His only hiccup was a second place in the final moto of the day. For his efforts, Cannella will get the use of a YZ of his choice along with $2500 in parts and accessories for the 2015 season.
“I’m so excited to have won this fantastic award! Knowing I have a YZ and $2500 for next year is amazing. I’m looking forward to starting a wonderful relationship with Yamaha Motor Canada.” said Cannella of his Factory Ride for 2015.
“For next year, I’ll be riding a YZ125. It’s a bike I love and the 2015 2-strokes look great. McKee Sports in Delhi, ON is where I get all my Yamaha’s. I’m looking forward to walking in and picking up my Factory Ride. I’d like to thank my parents and brother who have supported me throughout my entire racing career, my trainer Matt Crown, all my sponsors and Yamaha Motor Canada.”
The Walton TransCan race week concluded the 2014 Factory Ride Award contest. Three winners from across the country have won YZ’s of their choice and collected $2500 in parts and accessories for the 2015 race season.
