The 5th annual MMRS Madoc National went off this past weekend. As always, there was great racing, great people and lots of smiles. The track was very technical on Saturday and got faster on Sunday. Cole Thompson was the fastest all weekend long and Eve Brodeur was the top Woman racer. The event had 700-plus entries and is still the can’t miss event of the summer. Let’s take a look at how Dawn McClintock saw the event. Thanks for reading.
If you can’t sell it, race it! The pit bike race was a blast to watch.
The flag that everyone wants to see first.
Big thumbs up from Kim Normandin. This was the best race I’ve seen from her, and her English interview was pretty impressive as well.

Everyone in the MMRS crew has an important job, and this one has its ups and downs.
Doesn’t this Suomy remind you of the old M2R Blackfoot helmets?
In a few years, we may see Tanner Ward trying to chase down his little brother Carter in the Pro Class.
This young racer gets his turn talking with KTM’s Claudie Lapointe. Thanks for filling in, Claudie!

It wouldn’t be a real event without Dave Bell calling the action!
