Woodstock’s Tanner Ward has one goal in the Rockstar Triple Crown Motocross Pro Nationals and that’s to win.
It’s a goal the Honda Canada GDR Fox rider shares with every motocross pro – and one that has so far eluded him. Ward was near the top of the 250 class Sunday afternoon in the division’s third and final moto of the weekend and was riding second most of the race, but had to settle for third.
“I was second for pretty much the whole last moto and then I fell with a lap to go. The last lap… I don’t even remember. I was so dehydrated, and I’m still feeling rough right now,” said Ward later in the afternoon. “I don’t remember much. It was tough.”
Compiling points for all three motos – Saturday morning, Sunday morning and afternoon, Ward was tied for third, but officially placed fourth overall for Round 1 and 2 because the final moto carries the most weight. Ward was edged by Marco Cannella of Waterdown who finished second in the final moto. Hayden Halstead was sixth overall.
