GCR.. er GMX is back on the race circuit!
Here's a shot of everyone from the announcer's tower during riders meeting.
Let's start off the report with a great battle in the MX-1 Junior class. Moto one played out with a great battle between points leader Scott Giesbrecht (138) and local Sidney Froese. The two were neck and neck during the waning laps. With a lap to go Froese tries to put a wheel in on Giesbrecht but the pass attempt didn't stick..
..Geisbrecht won moto one, but Froese took moto two and the overall on the day.
Jacob Gnidziejko picked up a top five in Supermini with 4-5 motos for fifth overall.
Danny Winistok grabbed second overall (3-2) in Plus 40 A behind Kim Houde.
