Alessi’s podium finish moves him up to third overall in the MX1 standings, with two rounds remaining.

In MX2, coming off his best race of the season the week before at Pleasant Valley, Jacob Hayes was ready to battle for his first Canadian win. He grabbed the third quickest time in qualifying, and worked his way up to third in the first moto. Moto two saw another third place finish, for third overall on the day.

The series now heads to the sand track at Deschambault, near Quebec City for the penultimate round of the 2017 series. For more information on the Canadian National Motocross series, visit www.mxnationals.ca
