Flat Track Canada Crowns 2014 Champions
After an eleven race national series spread over the past five months, Flat Track Canada has named its champions for the season. In only their second year of existence, Flat Track Canada witnessed an increase in the calibre of competition, as well as the addition of new tracks and new classes, which resulted in many classes not being decided until the final race of the year.
There may have been new tracks on the schedule but one thing that remained the same from the sanctioning bodies first season was Don Taylor grabbing the number one plate in the Open Expert class. Taylor, who started strong by winning the first race of the season, is still the only Open Expert champion the young series has had. Spreading his seat time between a Harley Davidson XR 750, a KTM motocross based machine, as well as a Jim Sehl prepared Yamaha 450, Taylor won four races on his way to the title.
Welland Ontario native Tyler Seguin came out on top in the Expert DTX class. Riding a Honda 450 machine, Seguin picked up two wins on the season but was on the podium almost every race which helped pave way to his championship.
Intermediate action saw eighteen year old Braden Vallee ride smooth and consistent all year which allowed him to grab the titles in both the Intermediate Open and Intermediate DTX classes. Vallee split his time between his Kawasaki Kx450f and the exotic Zaeta 530 DT on his way to the top.
