On Saturday June 23rd, the Riverglade Motocross Park hosted the third stop on the Atlantic CMRC Motocross Spring Series. Here is a quick summary of the days results.
Hugh Henderson went 1 for 1 in the 50cc 4-6 year olds for first overall on the day, meanwhile Damon Burbine and Luke Penny challenged each other in the 50cc 7 to 8 year olds. Damon got the best of Luke on the day with first overall, with Luke in second with Blake Bransfield 3rd on the day.
In the 65cc class, the results were Adam Craig, Jonah Nice and Trevor Doiron finishing in that order.
In the 85cc, Brent Young went 3 and 1 on the day and took home first overall.
The top three in the 85cc 7 - 11 class, saw Adam Craig, Adam Hilling, and Brendon Clark.
Lameque, New Brunswick’s Frederick Gauvin took home first in the ATV Junior class. While Micheal Gauvin also from Lameque was the best in the ATV Pro class with Damon Baker second and Michael Tucker in third.
The beginner class had 22 bikes on the line, which is very impressive and shows how much the sport is growing. Jeremy Newton from Nova Scotia came out on top.
The Intermediate MX 2 motos were exciting to watch as Devin Sleigh and Ryan MacKay were first and second with Shane Gallant in third on the day. Shane finished first in the first moto but could only muster a fifth in the second moto. He had a good lead in the second moto but lost the lead to Devin and Ryan when he made a few mistakes.
One of the best classes to watch for good hard charging racing is the Junior MX 2 class. There are always three or four riders in the hunt and anyone of them can win. On this day, Logan Gallant was first, with Isaac Nice second and Cole Butcher third. Mat Clements was not far behind in fourth and challenged all day.
Note: PJ tells us she was okay and got up to finish strong! Good job!
Elizabeth Burke continues to get stronger and faster as the series goes on. She clearly dominated the Ladies class at Riverglade and showed the boys how fast she is in the School Boy class.
Davey Fraser and Kyle Chatham ran away with the Pro GP class. These two guys clearly enjoy pushing each other for the win, as they traded positions often. This weekend Davey took home first overall with Kyle in second. After three rounds, Davey is only 5 points ahead of Kyle.
That is a quick review of what happen at the Riverglade Motocross. Be sure to make your way to the Pleasant Valley motocross park in Brookefield, Nova Scotia on July 15 for the next stop in the Atlantic Series, racing starts at 10am.
