Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford

Monday Morning with Bigwave

If ever there’s a Monday when I need a big cup of coffee, it’s this one. We were at round 6 of the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals at Notre Dame Du Bon Conseil this weekend and decided it was a good idea to spend 12 hours in the hot sun and then hop in the car at 8pm and drive 8 hours home. Yep, it was about as glamorous a drive as you can imagine.

One thing it did was give me a chance to go into a trance and think about what it is that makes a motocross national, and probably any sporting event, different in the province of Quebec.

There’s just a different feel and vibe to a race there. It sounds like an obvious difference on the surface, but there’s definitely more to it than simply saying, “They just like motorsports more than the rest of Canada does.

So what is it?

As we sat under our Scott tent beside the DMX Van in a pretty plum spot beside Jimmy and Ross with the Rockstar Hospitality rig, I started listening to Mathieu on the microphone, announcing what was going on throughout the day.

One thing I noticed is that he was skewing everything he said toward the fans, not the riders. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, “Professional sports is a product…a show.” The rest of the country could learn a little something about this, I think.

I’m by no means fluent in French, but I took it all the way through high school, and that means grade 13 back in my day, so I grabbed about 60% of it. 100% of that was directed at the spectators. Riders and teams can go talk to the people in the CMRC trailer to find out what’s going on. The spectators need to be entertained and talked to. It makes them feel like the show is all about them (which it really is, or should be) and they will enjoy themselves, tell others, and come back.

I found this to be the key ingredient missing in getting more people to our events across the rest of the country. No, I’m not saying the rest of us do a poor job of announcing, I’m just saying there is a certain element missing from most of them, and I’m postulating that who we are announcing for is at the core.

The gang at the MX Bon Conseil track didn’t have much time to prepare for this round, after Ulverton was ripped from the schedule due to agricultural battles, but they did a great job getting it ready…for riders AND the fans.

They added new fencing to the grounds that allowed spectators to be inside the track like you see in the USA. As I walked around the track from the riders’ side, I could see people crowding the fences to get a look at the races almost the entire way around. It was cool.

Also, I’m not saying people need to walk around drunk at the races all the time, but they really catered to the fact that racing fans enjoy a tasty alcoholic beverage when watching a motorsports event. Kaven Benoit‘s better half, Virginie Blanchet, was busy all day selling beer at the centre of the action all day, keeping everyone happy.

I think everyone left the track that day after a really good time in the sun watching some of the best racing action possible – motocross. They even had a bouncy castle for the little kids to play in! Like I said, there’s just something different…no, BETTER about the atmosphere at a race in Quebec, and I think it has to do with how the entire day is aimed at those who come through the entrance gate to watch.

Professional sports is all about advertising/marketing dollars and the sooner we all get on board with this concept like they seem to have in Quebec, the sooner we can continue to grow this sport. There is no sport more exciting to watch than ours, we just need people to have something to do when the riders aren’t actually out on the track. Keeping the people off the track entertained goes a long way to keeping the racers on the track and getting paid.

So, then I made it through the small town and onto Highway 20 pointed west… I’m kidding!


So much happened at the races yesterday that I really don’t even know where to begin. Seriously, every single rider we spoke to had something happen to them at this round. It was crazy. We’ll gather up our stories and chat about it all in our post-race podcast later today with Andy White from FXR. There’s no way this one isn’t going into overtime, so get yourselves hydrated and comfortable for this one!

I’ll save the details for the Photo Report and the FXR Highlight Video that will be up later on the site. I will, however, say that I hope the injuries to the KTM Canada Thor Racing riders, Cole Thompson and Kaven Benoit, aren’t as bad as they could be.

Cole went down early in moto 1 when his inside line came together with Jacob Hayes’ outside line and they hit each other hard. Jacob was left with a badly bent shifter while Cole was left with a dislocated thumb that had him feeling sick to his stomach as he looked down to see it pointing in a very unnatural direction.

Jacob came into the pits for repairs at least once while Cole headed back to the pits where his thumb was looked at. It was decided it was dislocated and they popped it back in place and crossed their fingers for the second moto.

They taped it up and squeezed it into a pair of gloves for the second moto, where Cole got last gate pick but headed out. On the second lap, it popped out again and Cole was left racing for points with a throttle thumb pointed down at the dirt. For him to grab a 7th and keep the points lead by 2 is something that makes me both cringe and applaud. That was a manly effort, if I’ve ever seen one.

Kaven was in a heated battle in 3rd with Colton Facciotti during the second moto when he got out of control after the mechanics’ area (like many did throughout the day), got his handlebars in the ribs, and was sent flying about 30 feet through the air (as I was told by someone who saw it happen).

Colton came through and got tangled with the #3 bike but managed to continue. Kaven wasn’t so lucky and was down in a heap. He managed to get to his feet but then the pain set in and he was taken away to get looked at by the medics.

I was on the other side of the track when it happened, but saw Kaven leave in an ambulance a while later. We spoke with Team Manager JSR at the end of the day but he didn’t really know any more than we did about Kaven’s condition.

We heard reports that he was feeling better and that it was more for precaution that he was taken to the hospital, but we’ll wait until we hear more to say anything else. Best of luck, Kaven. It’s been a rough year for the rookie 450 Pro rider.

We head to Pleasant Valley in Truro, Nova Scotia, this coming weekend.


Women’s East MX Nationals

Speaking of gutsy performances, Eve Brodeur put in a tough performance this past weekend in the Women’s Class. She over-jumped the finish line jump at MX Bon Conseil the day before the national and spent the day at the hospital with a very sore ankle/foot.

She managed to line up for the races and put in a gritty 2-moto performance behind Kennedy Lutz to stay second in points. Nobody is going to catch Kennedy, who lapped up to 4th place, but keeping herself in 2nd was key to her season.

We’ll have a Photo Report up later where we’ll go into more details.

I’ve got to keep moving today or else I’ll go lie down for a nap! Have a great week. We’ll keep firing up the content throughout the day and week before hopping in the van and heading out to Truro and Moncton for rounds 7 and 8.
