Making the transition from highly-ranked amateur rider to first-year Pro can sometimes be difficult. It can be even tougher when you’re nursing a lingering injury. Newtonville, Ontario’s Westen Wrozyna found this out in 2014. Although he had a solid year with some impressive highlights, he wasn’t able to compete at the level he is accustomed to. He’s coming into 2015 hungrier than ever and has a program in place that should see him excel and meet his expectations. We caught up with the hard-working rider to see what he’s been up to and what he’s hoping for in his sophomore MX2 season.

Patrick Butler was recently signed onto the Lusty Industries Australian Downhill team alongside long time Lusty rider and Elite National Series Overall winner, Graeme Mudd. Pat has been lucky enough to grow up just 15 minutes from one of Australia's premiere downhill trails, Awaba, and also had a supportive family where his father is heavily involved with state and national series race management. He started riding downhill at the age of 12, now 15, and has been progressing ever since. I met Pat through riding and we've been good friends ever since, although he is a much better rider.
