Canadian rider Doug DeHaan has he plans set for 2002.Doug will be competing in the 2002 Canadian Nationals aboard a Honda CRF450.With Doug be on the injured reserve of late since the Toronto Arenacross information has been scarce but Doug was glad to let fans and the industry know what heís up to.

 

VRM:

Doug VRM knows you havenít raced in a while, why?

Doug DeHaan:

Well, my last race was the Toronto Arenacross and during the race my shoulder didnít feel right so I went to the doc to get it checked out.

VRM:

What were the results with the meeting with the doc?

Doug DeHaan:

He said my shoulder had a slight tear in it and that eventually I should get it fixed.He said if it feels OK and strengthens up I could ride.He did tell me a perfect hit on the shoulder would knock it out of place.

VRM:

With that advise what decisions did you make about the 2002 season.

Doug DeHaan:

I took some time off and rehabbed my shoulder.I didnít want to miss the 2002 Canadian session if possible.After rehab my shoulder feels stronger and doesnít bother me when I ride.I have tentatively schedule surgery for mid September to get it corrected as suggested.If something happens during the year Iíll just move the surgery up.

VRM:

Have you ridden and tested it out.

Doug DeHaan:

Yes I have.Iíve been riding for a week and a half and everything feels great.Iíve been riding some really gnarly sand tracks and all is good.

VRM:

Speaking of riding what are you riding this year?

Doug DeHaan:

Iíll be riding a Honda CR450F and love it.†† When I first rode it last year I knew it was a bike I wanted to ride in 2002.

VRM:

Who will you be riding for?

Doug DeHaan:

This year Iíll be riding for Diablo Honda out of Montreal Canada.I will be competing in the 250cc class.My teammates look to be Marco Dube (250cc) and Matt Maximoff (125cc).

VRM:

Who is Diablo?

Doug DeHaan:

They are a huge paint ball company, which also backs the Montreal Honda shop.

VRM:

What are some of your other sponsors?

Doug DeHaan:

I will be in either Thor or Fox gear, Oakley goggles and Alpinestars or Fox boots.I would like to mention VRM for supporting my web site.

VRM:

What number will you be running in the Canadian Nationals?

Doug DeHaan:

#18.

VRM:

When will you be racing next?

Doug DeHaan:

I will be racing at the Dunes this weekend in Ontario Canada.

VRM:

Will you be riding and US SX or US Nationals?

Doug DeHaan:

I really wanted to ride the Pontiac SX race but using discretion I will sit this race out.I need to look at the long term this year and thatís riding well in the Canadian nationals.I would like to ride a few US Nationals (Mt. Morris, and the last couple of races).

VRM:

Will you be in Pontiac to watch?

Doug DeHaan:

Itís so hard to go to a race and watch when you know you should be on the track.Itís really tough sitting in the stands.I may show up though.

VRM:

Doug, the throttle is on the right.

Doug DeHaan:

That advice will be warranted this summer.Thanks.
