The Canadian Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals makes it’s way east with the second leg here in Ulverton, Quebec, which is just a short jaunt east of Montreal. The day started out in pouring rain and some figured we were in for a real mudder, but it was short-lived. The sun came out and the track was mint all day long.
Here’s a look at race day with James Lissimore behind the lens.
Willy Shatrau #877 made the drive up from Oswego, NY to compete this weekend at Ulverton and went 21st for the day.
Vincent Lauzon #52 made the short drive from Blainville, QC and finished 15th.

Not quite the day Jess had hoped for. Some bike issues held him back in moto 2.
Ayr, Ontario native, Jamie Hajgato #675 went 27-26 for a 28th overall.
Not bike troubles but RV troubles plagued Jay Burke this week, but that didn’t stop him from pulling out his tool box and welder and getting things fixed to make it on time for Ulverton. Burke #38 finished the day 19th overall.
Another successful weekend under the MX101 tent. Hayden Halstead is ramping things up for the eastern rounds.

Getting things done. Davey Fraser had great day after putting a tough Gopher Dunes round behind him.

Manitoba rider, DJ Burmey hauled it at Ulverton with a 14th in the first moto and then had a tough moto 2 going 32nd. He finished the day with a 17th overall.

Who says you need matching gloves anyway.
Dylan Wright #17 pushed his limits all day and it paid off for him.
A fierce battle with Cole Thompson in the second moto made for some great racing. In the end however, Thompson was docked three positions for cutting the track which then gave Wright the overall win.
