Like every other sport in the world, the COVID pandemic forced the delay, and later cancelation, of the first half of the Rockstar Energy Canadian MX Tour. With favourable conditions for holding sporting events in the province of Ontario, the Jetwerx team were able to put together a revised schedule consisting of four events at Ontario tracks, with a final round at the Quebec track of Deschambault. To increase the amount of racing in this revised schedule, they added a third moto, to take place on Saturday’s, making for a combined three moto score for the weekend.
The first round of the new schedule took place this past weekend at the deep sand track of Gopher Dunes. No spectators were allowed but everyone was happy to finally be back racing and it showed on the track. Here’s a look at what went down at the first round of the strange 2020 season.
