Race Clinic with Tera Laho Kicked off Rounds 3&4 of the CanAm Tour

The CanAm Watercross Tour stopped at the beautiful Belle Vista Inn in Caseville, MI, last weekend for Rounds 3&4. Once again, Mother Nature did not disappoint the racers, who enjoyed warm sun, bright blue skies, and water so clear you could see the bottom on the back straight. The weekend was kicked off on Friday afternoon with a Racer Clinic hosted by eight time World Champion Tera Laho. The 18 racers that attended the clinic were given an overview of the basics of racing along with Tera's tips, tricks, and recommendations followed by an opportunity to spend time in the water on one with her.

Lake Huron offered up super smooth conditions for Saturday and rolled in some white caps Sunday afternoon, making for some exciting racing. The new Sea-Doo Spark continues to gain popularity on the CanAm Tour, with seven riders on board Sparks over the weekend. In the Rec Lites class, Paul Green and Eric Gabriel Sr. are tied for the points lead after swapping wins. Gordon Horne and Eric Gabryel Jr. are also tied in Rec Lites for 3rd overall, which will make things interesting for Rounds 5&6! Kaila Gabryel took the top spot in the newly added Women's Rec Lites class, followed by Mary Kay Heckman and Sandra Gabryel. Jake Zier jumped into the tour at Round 3, and was on his way to making his mark in the ProAm Ski GP class before sinking his hydro on Saturday afternoon, leaving the door open for Dave Davidson, the 2013 CWA Tour GP champion. Dave also pulled off the win in the ProAm Ski Stock class ahead of Shane Riley, who was able to hold off Coty Duffner and Anne Bigsby for second place. Ironwoman Anne Bigsby also raced Masters Ski and Women's Ski on Saturday, finishing on top in both those classes.

In the 1000 SS class, Rob Vlcko and Russell Ververka traded #1's, with Kyle Holmes and Larry Letke taking turns on the podium. Alex Quesnelle and Drew Horn each earned a win in Novice Ski Stock, with Errol Lange coming out of the weekend #2 in points. Hannah Hulett pulled off two wins for the weekend in Junior Girls Ski after losing her lanyard at the start of her first moto and having to work her way through the pack. In the Naturally Aspirated Runabout class, Larry was able to earn his first win of the season, but Biz Stevens came away the points leader. Full results can be found here.

Rounds 5&6 will be held on July 19&20 in the racer favorite, Belle River, ON, in conjunction with the Sunsplash Festival. Please join the facebook group "CWA Watercross and Freestyle Tour" for information and updates. Entry form here.

The 2014 CanAm Tour is sponsored by Sea-Doo, Yamaha of Canada, Hydro-Turf, Mazak Corp, Unique Tool and Design, Belle River BIA, Keystone Lawn Service, Amy Green, and Mai Tiki Resort.

The sparks were flying at Rounds 1&2 of the CWA CanAm Tour in Oscoda, MI.

It might have been a long winter in the north, but the CWA staff and racers got their blood pumping by starting off the Tour with a 3 moto day for all classes on Saturday at the Mai Tiki Resort. We ran 39 motos with lots of laps and not a single red flag. A handful of racers took their new SeaDoo Sparks to the start line in the new Runabout Rec Lites class, with Paul Green and Eric Gabryel swapping wins for Rounds 1&2. The ProAm Ski Stock class continued to be dominated by Josh Block and Dave Davidson, but Shane Riley and Mark Lossing, who moved up in the ranks this year, ran close behind. The Runabout Naturally Aspirated class also saw the return of an epic battle between Biz Stevens and Larry Letke, with Biz just edging out Larry both days. The Junior Girls class continues to be one to watch, with six girls returning in the junior ranks. Hannah Hulett and Shannon O'Connor traded #1's over the weekend. Full results have been posted.

Rounds 3&4 are coming up June 28th & 29th at the Bella Vista Inn in Caseville, MI. Entry form here.

Multi-time World and National Champion Tera Laho will be hosting a racer clinic at the race site in Caseville on June 27th. Information on the race clinic here.

See you all in Caseville!
