Last weekendwas the seventh round of the 2013 CMRC Motocross Nationals in Deschambault. Let me start by saying I thought the track was really run, but at the same time it was probably the most one lined track we have raced all year. Timed qualifying went great, I put down the fastest lap giving myself first gate pick going into moto one. In the first moto I was t-boned in the first turn forcing me to swerve off the track. I reentered in almost dead last and went to work moving forward, but with the track being so one lined passing was extremely difficult. On the last lap I found myself in 5th with Savage right in front of me, I made the pass for 4th but in the fallowing turn he came into me and I went down. I ended up being clipped twice while trying to remount the motorcycle and was forced to kick start it not once but twice, I finished a disappointing 14th.
I rebounded nicely in the second moto scoring a top-5 start and passing into 1st early, I lead the rest of the moto and scored the win. The 14-1 moto scores earned me 5th overall. The good news on the weekend is that Politelli finished behind me both motos and I cut his points lead in half with four motos remaining. I now have two more rounds, four motos to make up 15-points. I feel like I am riding better now than any other time in my career and I can’t wait to go racing this weekend.
