We are rounding the end of the season here shortly with one more round to go in the Rockstar Energy Drink Canadian MX nationals. We saw some great battles this past weekend as we returned once again to Quebec where fan turn out is always huge. Deschambault has been a favourite on the circuit for a number of years. The track is always dressed to kill and as you can see by some of the photos, fans packed the banner lined fence rows. The deep sand made for some crazy choppy breaking bumps that took their toll on a number of riders. Here is how the day went for our riders.

Brock Leitner #45 has been taking the good with the bad this season. His sub-frame and pipe broke in the first moto but he managed to get things back on track and charged hard in moto two to finish a solid 14th.
