Jun 20 has become one of Canada’s premier training programs available to riders of all ages and skill levels. Weekly camp sessions are going on throughout the month of July at the state of the art training facility located in Brigden, Ontario.

Program Director Jay Thompson announced this week that Colton Facciotti and Cole Thompson have joined the program as instructors for the upcoming sessions. Cole of course will be sporadically in and out of instructing because he is also busy training for the outdoors going on in the states right now. None the less, kids will get to see him in action. “It’s going to be great to have two big name riders team up with our program and help us take our students to the next level. Young riders look up to these guys as professional athletes, so spending a week with them and having the opportunity to learn from them in a small group environment is a once in a life time experience,” said Jay Thompson.

Cole Thompson finished 6th in points in the 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250SX East division. One of his best finishes happened in front of a Canadian crowd when he took 6th in the main event at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, ON. Thompson also retains the title of Clash for Cash champion for the 2013 Arenacross Tour season, and also grabbed the 2012 lites supermotocross title in Montreal. “I am excited to see the new talent come through and teach kids the sport I love” said Cole.

Colton Facciotti has been a multi Canadian National champion in the MX1 class. Colton is one of the best riders all in all of Canada. Unfortunately, Facciotti is recovering from a recent accident he acquired from the last Canadian National race he attended. He is on the mend and still part of his factory KTM REDBULL Royal Distributing Fox Canada Race team. In the mean time, it will be nice to have him apart of the instructing team while he’s healing up. We’re sure the kids adapt well to his style of riding and teaching.

Limited spots are available for the July camp dates and sessions are continuing to fill up. The five-day session cost $650 to cover the riders food, lodging, riding and training.
