My first cease after I obtained into California after a protracted, 3-day drive from Ontario was to see him in Hesperia, California, the place he’ll name house for the subsequent short while.
I pulled as much as the home and fired him a message that I used to be there. When he stepped out of the home and flashed that acquainted smile, the years melted away and we shook arms like a pair previous pals.
We went inside and sat on one of many couches and started to go over his previous decade. It has been an incredible story, one which we’ll let him inform in an interview to observe right here on the location.
When he appeared in a Beta jacket, I knew he had a brand new plan.
Kade will race the brand new Beta enduro machine within the WORCS collection down right here in California as a part of the Beta Canada crew serving to to develop the bike and program with the purpose of racing the FMSQ Enduro collection in 2023, and who is aware of, possibly we see him line up on the brand new MX machine within the Canadian Triple Crown Collection MX Nationals in 2024?!
He’ll race the Large Kahuna GKMA race in Kamloops, BC after which compete in Quebec this season, a collection his dad, Dave Walker, raced when Kade as only a child.
It was nice to speak with Kade after so a few years away from Canada. We’ll get collectively at some tracks and trails down right here within the subsequent couple weeks, so search for some motion photographs and video in addition to an in depth interview with him.
Welcome “house,” Kade.
