Seth Chevrier took the top spot in his class in the Canadian National Arenacross Tour.

Skyller Archer and Seth Chevrier just finished the 2016 Canadian National Arenacross Tour this past weekend in Calgary.

The series was five rounds and included venues in Sarnia and Barrie, Ont., Penticton and Calgary for a two-round double header.

Skyller, #245, competed in the Open Pro class, riding his Yamaha 450 against top U.S. and Canadian racers. He also competed in the Clash for Cash, which is a 20-lap race with the opportunity for riders to win $25,000. A 10th place finish Saturday night was a highlight for the first year pro rider.

Seth, #505, raced his Yamaha 250 in the Junior Open and Junior Lites classes for the series. After a scary crash in Penticton, he came back with a 10-win streak in Calgary. This accumulated enough points to put him in 1st place and become the Canadian National Champion in his class.

The guys will finish the 2016 season racing the Future West Arenacross series, which wraps up at the end of November in Chilliwack. Then they are off to California in March for a five-week rigorous training camp with world-renowned motocross racer Ryan Hughes at the Rhyno Institute.

The boys are looking forward to big things for 2017, and wish to thank all their friends, family, and sponsors for all their help.
