Riverglade is the last stop for the east coast before the series starts winding its way back to Quebec. This is a track that is favoured by many riders and it always has a good turnout on the spectating side. After sealing the points lead in Pleasant Valley, Shawn Maffenbeier continues to dominate and close behind him is his team mate Jess Pettis who came out of the gate wide open after his shoulder injury. Lets take a look at some of the action from round eight in Moncton, NB.
Another guy who has been on the injured list is Cade Clason. Hes not 100% yet with his shoulder but he powered through at Riverglade to keep up his points.
