Moncton, New Brunswick was stop number eight on the Rockstar Energy Drink Canadian Nationals circuit and this year did not disappoint, track-wise, weather-wise or race-wise. The Riverglade crew had done a fantastic job getting the track groomed for the pro national on Sunday. Despite the fact that this track is a bit challenging for spectators viewing all the action, we give them a big thumbs up for their hard work and bringing us another memorable race on the national schedule. We have a glimpse of some of the highlights from the lens of James Lissimore.

After attempting to double-class last weekend, Brock Leitner decided to stick with the MX1 class where he’s racking up the points.
