4 Year old racer gets AXO Athlete of the Week award.

Yamaha Motor Canada congratulates Jessica Froese on being voted as the ‘AXO Athlete of the Week’ at this year’s Western Canadian Amateur Motocross Championships (WCAN) in Raymond, Alberta!

A local to Raymond, Jessica competed in the Mini ATV Beginner class and did her best to tame the rough and tumble Temple Hill track. The 4-year-old, first-year racer ended the three-day event in second overall. A great finish, for sure, but it’s her hard work, passion and respect for the sport and fellow racers that earns her the AXO Athlete of the Week, Presented by Yamaha. The award was directed towards riders 50cc to 85cc classes, who show dedication, sportsmanship and perseverance. Included with the award is a complete set of AXO riding gear.

“New Way Motorsports Yamaha set up a ballot box at their booth,” says Yamaha’s National Marketing Manager, Tim Kennedy. “Race attendees were encouraged to stop by and vote for a rider they felt best displayed a strong devotion to racing, as well as great respect towards competitors and track officials. After seeing Jessica’s photo and her smile—and considering her family’s efforts in helping to prep the pit area at Raymond—we couldn’t be happier with the result.”

Ironically enough, the Raymond Amateur National was Jessica’s first race—what a way to start off her career!

“Jessica started riding her quad last spring when she was three-years-old,” says her father, Tony. “Temple Hill is where she always rides and this was the first race she has been in. She loves riding her little quad around and had a blast at the races. We plan to keep her going in motocross as long as she wants to; we’re going to get her a dirt bike and see if she enjoys that as much as her quad.”

Congratulations to all Raymond award winners and Western National Champions!
