This past weekend in Budds Creek, Maryland and Calgary, Alberta, EKS(X) Brand goggles athletes made their mark at the highest levels with some good rides. Mike Alessi of Factory KTM raced hard to a second place in the first moto and put EKS on the podium. In the second moto, Mike made contact with another rider and bent his front disc thereby forcing Alessi to salvage as many points as he could in getting a twelfth. His 2-12 finishes added up to a fifth overall on the day.
Motoconcepts Yamaha teammates Ryan Sipes and Kyle Chisholm had great days and both placed inside the top ten of the 450 class. After four rounds, Alessi is fourth in the points and Sipes and Chisholm are tied for seventh giving EKS(X) Brand three riders in the top ten which is tied for the most riders in the top ten out of every goggle company out there.
Meanwhile in Calgary, Machine Racing’s Kyle Keast used EKS(X) Brand goggles to end up fourth overall on the day in the MX1 class and after three rounds up north, is currently second in the points.
