Well, the MMRS 5th Annual MX National held in Madoc, ON was a huge success and we saw returning champs and some new ones. With over $30,000 in payout and prizes, it drew out some new competitors and we couldn’t have asked for a better weekend weather-wise (except for maybe Friday practice day where we had some remnants of the rain storm on Thursday that turned the track into a bit of a mess). It’s hard to capture everyone and wedge it into one report so here are a few highlights from the racing at Madoc.
The signature “no visor” look is a dead give away to who this little ripper is. Ben Mistelbacher #61 swept the 50 (7-8) class and went second in both the 50 GP and the 60 (7-9) classes. And no he didn’t lose his visor, he just doesn’t like them.
