Canyon Richards has been a dominant force in the 65cc (10-11) and (7-11) Dirty 100 rankings over the course of the 2020 racing season as he’s been constantly filling up the results sheet with podium finishes, one after another. The Rock River Yamaha backed rider started his season at the Daytona RCSX at the beginning of March, earning his first rostrum result in the 65cc (7-11) class in the form of a 2nd place finish. Richards also picked up an additional 38 points in the 65cc (10-11) class as he bagged a 5th place result, earning some confidence as he prepared for Spring A Ding Ding. The New Jersey native came out swinging when the gate dropped on the race weekend at Underground MX, finishing five out of six motos in one of the top two places. Richards earned 2nd overall in both the 65cc (7-11) and 65cc (10-11) Limited classes and he won the overall in the 65cc (10-11) class, claiming a perfect 50 point score in the Dirty 100 rankings as a result. At the Loretta Lynn Amateur National Motocross Championship, the Yamaha rider performed to his usual standards as he finished every single moto but one on the podium while notably winning his last two races of the week. Although Richards began racing in the 85cc (9-11) Limited class at the Baja Brawl, he still put a lot of focus into both the 65cc (7-11) and 65cc (10-11) classes, finishing in 1st and 2nd place overall, respectively. His speed was unquestionable as he accrued a total of three wins on his YZ65 throughout the weekend, putting him at the top of three separate Dirty 100 classifications heading into The Motoplayground Race at Ponca City. The Rock River Yamaha rider has the championship wrapped up in the 65cc (10-11) class while Seth Dennis (2nd place) has moved up to the 85cc classes full-time and Caden Dudney (3rd place) is more than 50 points behind. In the 65cc (10-11) class, Richards has a 31 point lead ahead of Jonathan Getz who stands as the only rider that poses a threat to his title. The rankings are a little bit tighter in the 65cc (10-11) Limited Dirty 100 classification as the New Jersey native holds a three point lead ahead of Cole Blecha, but unfortunately, a lacerated spleen will sideline him from The Motoplayground Race at Ponca City. So long as Richards shows up and races in Oklahoma, he has a pretty good chance of coming away with all three 65cc Dirty 100 Championships.
