Metcalfe wins at Moto Valley Raceway

June 22, 2015(Kamloops, BC) The 2015 CMRC Canadian Motocross series returned to the heart of the prairies this weekend as the series made it’s way to Regina, Saskatchewan’s Moto Valley Raceway, and just like the previous year, rain was in the forecast. The weather would prove to be no trouble for the team though as Brett Metcalfe battled through the conditions to take his second overall win of the series and make up ground in his bid to take his second Canadian title.

With the rain coming down for moto one, Metcalfe grabbed a top 5 start and quickly rode his way to the front. Once in the lead, he rode smart to stay on two wheels and grab the moto win. With the rain stopping for moto two, the track was in much better shape. Grabbing another top 5 start in moto two, Metcalfe worked his way to second and with the overall win in his grasp, rode conservatively to grab the overall win. With two weekend’s off, Metty goes into the break only 12 points out of the Championship lead.

The team’s other MX1 rider, Teddy Maier, had a strong start to the day as the 2-time MX2 Champion qualified number one. He backed it up with a solid fifth in moto one. Unfortunately for Maier, another strong start in moto two was derailed by a rock that damaged his exhaust and forced him to pull off. All in all, a good ride for the Iowa native and he will no doubt take that confidence into the break.

In MX2, Cole Martinez was looking forward to racing in the Province where is mother resides but a shoulder injury sustained at Nanaimo kept him out of the race. He hopes to heal up during the break and be back in action at Gopher Dunes.

The series now takes a two-weekend break before resuming in Courtland, Ontario on July 12th at the famous deep sands of Gopher Dunes Raceway. For more information on the series, visit www.cmrcracing.com
