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.
