CAM02138
NATHAN MAILLOUX SECOND IN ISOC IN SALAMANCA, NY

After two weekends off, the Mailloux Racing team was back in action this weekend, with a very heavy schedule, comprising races in two different series, and two different countries, traveling nearly 2800km in four days. Although races were planned in the Canadian CSRA Championship for February 4-5, in Sault-Ste-Marie, ON, the team decided to add a race to its schedule by traveling first to Salamanca, NY, this February 3, for the US Air Force Snocross National, 5th round of the ISOC Amsoil Championship Snocross.

It is on the site of Seneca Allegany Casino, in Salamanca, NY, that a technical and fast track was builted. Only our Ski-Doo rider #111, Nathan Mailloux, was in action in New York, with races in the National Transition 8-12 and the Junior 10-13 classes. Nathan feel very comfortable on the track, making a series of double, and collect a 1st and a 2nd place finish in his qualifying rounds in Transition 8-12. In the final, Nathan had a great start, and got to the checkered flag in 2nd place, earning a well deserved first podium this season in Transition 8-12 at a National ISOC. In the Junior 10-13 class, Nathan placed 2nd and 5th in his two heats. In the final, he had a great race, fighting hard with the leaders, and ended up his day in New York with the 4th place finish.

In mid-afternoon, following these great performances by Nathan in ISOC, the team hit the road to Sault-Ste-Marie, Ontario, for the Highland Ford Can-Am Cup, round 2 of the CSRA Snowcross Championship, which takes place at The Yard, located right next to the Canada/United-States bridge.

On Saturday, Nathan continues on his momentum in Transition 8-12, with two 1st places in qualifications, and the win in the final. In the Junior 10-13 class, Nathan has a good race line, and finishes 1st in his two heats races, for the 1st place overall. The Junior F2 13-17 class completes its schedule for Saturday, and Nathan ended up 4th in the first round, after coming off his sled while leading, and 1st in the second round, giving him a 3rd place finish overall. Unfortunately, Nathan was unable to race on Sunday, suffering from pain and discomfort still unknown.

Our Ski-Doo rider #880, Martin Mailloux, was ready for his races in the Pro AM+30 class in Sault-Ste-Marie. On Saturday, Martin finishes 5th in his two heats races, placing him also 5th overall.

Great Start for Mailloux Racing in CSRA at Rouyn-Noranda

CAM02057

Ste-Sophie, January 20, 2017

It is this weekend, January 14-15, that Mailloux Racing began his season in the Canadian Snowcross Championship in Abitibi. This first round of the CSRA Circuit took place within the 7th edition of the Grand Prix International Snowcross de Rouyn-Noranda.

Practices were in the schedule on Saturday morning to enable all the riders to get some track times as the season gets underway. In the afternoon, just our Ski-Doo rider #880, Martin Mailloux, was in action in the Pro AM+30 class. He finishes in 4th place in both of his qualifying rounds, which gives him the 4th place overall. During the Sunday races, Martin ends up 5th in his two races, placing him 5th overall.

Our Ski-Doo rider #111, Nathan Mailloux, was looking forward to start his season on the CSRA Circuit on Sunday, racing in three classes. Nathan gets a strong start in Transition 8-12, with wins in his two qualifying rounds, and also in the final. In the Junior 10-13 class, Nathan got 1st to the checkered flag in the first round, but came 2nd in the second round, giving him the 2nd place overall. Nathan was also racing in the Junior F2 13-17 class, and he got two more wins, ending up 1st at the end of the weekend.

Travel Addicts Review the WASPcam 9907 4K

Click here to read the original article

NOVATEK CAMERA
As frequent travelers, the search for the “best” camera is something like a quest for us. We’re constantly searching out and testing new cameras and devices that will improve our photography and video. We learned about the WASPcam™ 9907 and decided to try it out.

WASP-1-768x576
To put the WASPcam™ 9907 4K to the test, my ambition was to take it mountain biking in the Wissahickon Valley Park not far from where we live. When I used to run marathons, I trained on the valley hills. This park is steeped in history: part of the Revolutionary War was fought here and Edgar Allen Poe commemorated it in a poem. Unfortunately, recent rains left some parts of the park extremely muddy.

Abandoning the mountain biking plan, I revisited my roots and decided to go for a last trail run before the snow fell. I mounted my WASPcam™ 9907 on a head strap and set off up the hills. I ran for about 30 minutes stopping to fire off shots in burst mode (10 photos per burst), before stopping to check my work at a hilltop vantage point. The camera has a nice HD 1.5 inch LCD screen to review photos and videos.

NOVATEK CAMERA
There are many products in the personal action camera or sports camera market. But almost universally, all of those products have had a single, significant drawback: they don’t actually take good photos. They may be great at video, but the still photos are often blurry. This is usually because of the thick plastic protective cases or stiff trigger mechanisms that are necessary to keep it waterproof. The WASPcam™ 9907 takes great still photos! By fully integrating the camera and the case into a single shooting unit, the trigger mechanisms are more seamless and smoother, allowing for clearer photos.

NOVATEK CAMERA
Leaving the park, I decided to mount the WASPcam™ on my car-mount suction cup and record the drive home in full 4K/24 fps glory. The video is the crispest I’ve ever seen a sports action camera! This is going to be a great video camera for some of our more active adventures.

The other key benefit for me is battery life. We have another action camera and have been really disappointed in the poor battery life. During my trail run, I had the WASPcam™ 9907 on for nearly two hours and used less than half the battery. The battery in our other action sports camera would have been totally dead by that point.

We have two upcoming trips (a ski trip to Steamboat Springs in Colorado and a trip to the Caribbean for scuba diving) where we’re looking forward to using the WASPcam™ 9907. Each will give us a chance to test the durability in more extreme environments (including the case which is fully waterproof to 98 feet).

The WASPcam™ 9907 4K retails for $329.95 and comes with a full kit of accessories and mountings.

WASP-3-768x576

You can float like a butterfly and sting like a bee, but this WASPcam rocks! Don’t get stung taking poor quality still photos, check out the WASPcam™. It makes a great gift for the active traveler in your life.

You can see a sample of the video I shot with the WASPcam™ here:
