Atlantic CMRC Motocross Series visits Riverglade
The Riverglade motocross park just outside Moncton, New Brunswick played host to what was referred to as the "Foxy-Glade" in reference to the change in tracks. The Atlantic CMRC Motocross schedule indicated that Fox Hollow Motocross track was to host the May28th race, however, some issues forced organizer Lee Steeves to move the race to the nearby Riverglade track. The change did not cause too many logistical problems since both tracks are located a few kilometers from each other.
Family, friends and racers were amazed in the quality of the Riverglade track, some said it was some of the best conditions they have seen at the Glade in a long time. Considering all the rain the Maritimes has seen in the last few weeks, it was surprising to see the conditions of the track. There was only one part of the track, a portion of the GP Section that was not great and caused a few problems. Organizers had to change the route of the track for a few motos while they worked on reducing the ruts and muck that cause a few crashes. A little time on the dozer fixed that problem.
The temps may have been cool, not good when you can see your breath at the end of May, but the racing was hot and plenty of fans showed up to watch.
Some of the highlights from the day include:
Davey Fraser had a great day finishing first in every Pro GP moto as well as first overall in the Youth class. It was nice to Levi Smith back in the hunt, placing third overall in the Pro GP.
The 50cc 7-8 year olds was fun to watch as Jackson Landry and Damon Burbine battled each other for the lead.
Alexandra Josey and Francine Leger chased each other in the Ladies Class.
Brent Chapman from Pictou County, Nova Scotia was first overall in the 50cc 4-6 year olds.
Abbie Landry beat Lorne Banks and a few others for first in the Vet Masters.
It was positive is see that the Beginner GP had 18 racers on the line, with Bryce Payne taking home the hardware.
It was a great day overall at the Glade. Can't wait for the next few races as the hunt for points continue in Atlantic Canada.
The next race in the Atlantic Series is Sunday June 12th at Mill Hill in Nova Scotia.
