With round eight in the books that leaves us with only one remaining round. We head back to Walton. Points chase for the title is down to the wire with Jess Pettis only a mere three points ahead of Joey Crown. It’s anybody’s game. Let’s take a look back at the weekend at Deschambault in Quebec.

A rough day for Hayden Halstead prepping his gate for qualifiers.

Halstead had a scary crash when he came up short on a jump. He was taken to hospital for assessment and had a minor concussion, split lip and a fractured T-12. This will finish Hayden’s season but we are certainly glad that he’s going to be ok. Wishing you speedy recovery Hayden from all of us at FXR!

Another solid weekend for Jared Petruska.
