So I just heard that Leading Edge in Kamloops is shut down. Anyone heard anything about this?

Yes it is closed. No "close out sale" , just locked the doors.
Somehow I think the fall of the oil patch industry had something to do with it.... but who knows.
If I hear any more Ill reply.

Inventory cleaned out and building up for sale. Does not look like a reopening will happen.

Seriously.....how can anybody justify all the people and the semi truck for an MX race that only pays little more then what a win at a local short track oval pays?

Does a team really need a goggle guy?

Yes I always wondered about the cost vs. reward of the race team. Seems expensive but I think most of the money comes from Monster Energy.

I wonder how long it will take for someone to pick up Arctic Cat and Kawasaki in Kamloops. I see the for sale sign on the building, but it isn't listed on the MCM Website. Be interesting to see what it's on the market for.

As far as I know, when Jason sold LE, he kept the race team and what goes with it. It was separate from the store. Kawasaki being the main team sponsor, little if any from the store.
The new owners didnt work hard, they just sat there waiting for customers. With the mass amount of inventory on hand you had better make an effort to move it! There were 2011 AC sleds still in the crate.
The alberta oil boys used to pay a lot of bills for them, that went away ....
Take this with a grain of salt ...... :-({|=
