Round 2 of the Rockstar Energy Drink Canadian MX Nationals was held at a track that is new to the circuit. Prince George Motocross Association put on a great event and impressed riders with the calibre of track they had. These guys obviously put a ton of work into getting their track up to standards and it sounds like there will be more national races held at the Blackwater MX track in Prince George, BC in upcoming years. Here’s a look at some of the action from the weekend.

The dominating ladies rider, Shelby Turner had fun in the slippery Prince George mud.

#241 Lisa Matechuk rounded out her day with 23-24 for a 25th overall.

Madi Watt #6 took a 14-7 to give her 9th for the day.

Congrats again to #1 Shelby Turner who is sweeping the west!

What a treat it was to see Snowbike champ, Brock Hoyer back out mixing it up in the pro class.

A few words of wisdom before the gate drops.

Hoyer would take 14-13 for a solid 13th overall.

You may notice a few of our riders with their Cold Cross vests on at Prince George. The cold and wet start to the day warranted some extra layers.

Redemption Racing squad member Cade Clason went 8-12 for an impressive 10th overall.

Stapleton would finish his day with a 13-11 for a solid 11th overall.

On the hunt. Hayden Halstead with a break out year is really proving that he’s got what it takes.

A solid first moto for Maffenbeier.

A third place finish in moto 1 saw Maffenbeier back on the box.

Shawn’s got what it takes to be a top contender for this MX2 class.

Some bad luck in moto 2 squashed Maffenbeier’s hopes for a return to the podium. He hit a rock that damaged his water pump and caused him to DNF.

Another great weekend for Teren Gerber who went 17-17 for 17th overall. See you guys next weekend!
