Valcourt, Québec, July 20, 2009 – With Can-Am™ X-Team Racer, Richard Pelchat, taking round two of the Canada Cup near Walton, Ontario, Pelchat now has the points lead in the Canada Cup ATV championship. He is looking to the next round of the Canada Cup where he could clinch the Canadian national ATV motocross championship aboard his Can-Am DS 450™ EFI ATV.
"Richard Pelchat is not only one of our top DS 450 racers with the CMRC series in Canada, but he is also running fast in the AMA ATV Motocross Championship in the United States," says Jimmie O'Dell, Racing Manager for Can-Am ATVs at BRP. "He is looking very strong and is hunting for his second Canadian national championship in as many years."
The next round of the Canada Cup ATV championship will be near Perry Sound, Ontario on August 8th and 9th. For more information on Can-Am racing, our 2009 contingency program and amateur DS 450 support program, please visit Can-Am - ATV.
