Metcalfe second overall in MX1 at Penultimate round
August 11, 2015(Kamloops, BC) The 2015 CMRC Canadian Motocross National series reached its penultimate round this past weekend as the series headed back to Quebec and one of the nicest tracks in Canada - the Ulverton MX facility, near Drummondville for round nine of the ten round championship series.
In MX1, Brett Metcalfe again started off strong, as the 2013 Champion qualified number one. In moto one, the Australian grabbed a top 5 start and worked his way up to 2nd by moto’s end. In moto two, he grabbed the lead on lap 2 and led for 10 laps before ultimately finishing second again, good enough for second overall on the day. Coming into the final round, Metcalfe finds himself in third place in the MX1 points standings with still an outside chance at taking his second Canadian title.
In MX2, both Cole Martinez and Shawn Rife were back in action at Ulverton, with the duo qualifying 2nd and 11th, respectively. For Martinez, the Arizona native worked his way up in both motos to get 6th overall, with 8-6 moto finishes. For Rife, the Ohio native had an up and down day as several tip overs saw him coming from the back of the pack to finish with 14-16 scores for 14th overall.
The series now heads to Walton, Ontario and the famous Parts Canada TransCan Amateur Championships that culminates with the final round of the 2015 CMRC Canadian Motocross National series on Sunday. For more information on the CMRC Canadian Motocross series, visit www.cmrcracing.com
