PerformX's junior expert racer Remi Gauvin came charging out of the gate this year, winning the first five races of the season including the Sea Otter Classic and the Northwest Pro GRT. Remi had impressive showings at a number of regional races, including winning the Mt. Washington stop of the BC Cup where he took his category and finished an impressive 2nd overall.

Remi also turned heads at Crankworx where he racked up three second places in the Garbonzo DH, Air DH and Canadian Open. But his crowning achievement was winning Canadian Nationals at Panorama Resort, where he also finished 2nd overall, pros included.

Remi earned a spot on the Canadian National team and raced at Worlds in Mont St. Anne in Quebec. Though he was third at the first split, Remi suffered a technical that knocked him out of contention. All in all, it was a very impressive final Junior Expert year for the Canadian speedster and bodes well as he enters the Elite ranks for 2011.

“Remi worked very hard in the preseason on his conditioning and you could witness his confidence grow as the season progressed,” says PerformX owner and trainer Todd Schumlick. “I think he will be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.”

For 2011, PerformX is expanding its program into camps, an academy and growing the PerformX team. From Sept. 30 to Oct. 4, PerformX will hold its first racer-oriented camp in Whistler, BC, with Canadian World Cup superstar Stevie Smith, who is coming off a very impressive 2nd place at Worlds. For more information, see the story here.

PerformX will also be offering a high-end Academy for young racers looking to take their game to the next level. The Academy will include fitness and nutritional programs and an extended camp in Southern California in early 2011, coinciding with PerformX’s renowned motocross camps.

PerformX would like to thank its sponsors: Evil Bikes, Spank Industries, Troy Lee Designs, Oakley and SRAM.
