Quesnel motocross rider gets upgrade for season

Zack Morrison is ready to jump into the 2021 season.

The 17 year old received a brand new 2021 Kawasaki KX-250 dirt bike to race for the year from Full Throttle Motorsports.

“Hopefully I’ll hit the podium more often,” Morrison said. “I need to work on my corners, other than that, just have good races and don’t hurt myself.”

What the 2021 season is going to look like is still up in the air, according to Zack’s father.

“There’s not a whole lot of races,” Joey Morrison said. “We’ve got a couple up this way, but most of them are down south. It’s all depending on what the COVID situation is. It’s gonna be a learning curve as we get going.”

Full Throttle owner Brad Dunn is more optimistic about the season, noting motorsports are comparatively safe events to hold during COVID-19.

A Quesnel race is planned for the May long weekend.

Zack is taking out the dirt bike to Chilliwack in late March to break it in before the competitive season begins.
