This week the series makes the short 2 hour drive over to Riverglade MX Park in Moncton, New Brunswick for the second of two stops in The Maritimes. The Riverglade track is fast, hard packed with rich red soil that provides good traction. The corners develop inside and outside ruts that provide great passing opportunities but due to the clumpy nature of the dirt it sometimes tends to throw riders off their line as they set up for a turn.

With Cole Thompson and Josh Osby now both out of the series with injuries Shawn Maffenbeier comes into round 8 of the series with a 21 point lead over Osby in the MX2/250 class. With Osby out of the series the next closest in points is Ryan Surratt trailing by 28 points. Barring injury or a mechanical it appears that Maffenbeier can now put it on cruise control for the rest of the series and collect his first MX2/250 title for himself and the MX101 Yamaha Team. In the MX1/450 class with last weekend's dilemma where Christopher Pourcel got docked a few positions, Matt Goerke now enters round 8 with a 19 point lead over Pourcel. With 3 rounds to go in the series it will be tough for Pourcel to chip away at the points lead with the way Matt Goerke has been riding this season. At this point things are looking good for Goerke to grab his 3rd MX1/450 national championship.

Weather: Mainly sunny with a high of 24°C/75°F.

MX101 is a Yamaha Team but the meaning behind the name is an MX School. When I first started riding I took lessons from the guys at MX 101.They own and operate the Sand Del Lee track near Ottawa, Ontario. The Sand Del Lee track hosted a Canadian National for a number of years.

Great group of people and it's nice to see all their hard work paying off this season.
