Rider of the Month - Tallon Unger
I have been very fortunate growing up in Alberta because there are a lot of races and the competition is very fast here! Also, this year I have been traveling to BC to do their provincial races for more experience and to learn different tracks. I've been on Kawasaki's Team Green Racing Program for two years now and won last year's top points award! I definitely want to let the good times roll!
