OTSFF Sports Signs Richard Grey For 2012 MX Season
OTSFF Sports Marketing Group is pleased to announce the signing of Richard Grey to their 2012 CMRC Nationals motocross team.
The seven-time Canadian National Amateur Champion will join the team as Bobby Kiniry's new teammate. Grey will campaign the MX2 class while Kiniry returns for his third season in the MX1 class, OTSFF's Andre Laurin said.
"We're excited to have Richard join our team because we believe he is at the forefront of a new generation of up-and-coming Canadian pro riders," Laurin said. "We've kept an eye on him for the past couple of years and have been impressed by his results as well as his professionalism on and off the track."
Despite campaigning only the eastern leg of the MX2 Nationals in 2011, Grey garnered an 18th place ranking, with his best result being recorded at the final round of the season in Walton. On the strength of 9-3 motos, Grey hammered down third overall in the nearly impossible racing conditions on the rain and mud soaked Walton Raceway track.
The 18-year-old Keswick, ON native, who turned pro this year, has also won a truckload of Ontario Provincial Championships as well as placing top-five, including two moto wins, at Loretta Lynn's in the U.S.
"I'm super pumped to be joining the OTSFF program and super excited to get the 2012 season going," Grey said. "This being my first major team, it's a huge step for me to be taking and I know I'm in for a huge learning experience. I also know that I'm going to have to put all my effort forth to confirm the confidence Andre has shown in me."
