The AMA/FIM Monster Energy Supercross Series made its lone trek north of the border, and the Toronto fans were treated to great racing. The Jeff Stanton-designed track was tricky enough on its own, but the soft soil was another added element that kept everyone on their toes. A complete opposite from Travis Pastrana’s creation last week, the ex Michigan Mafia member threw in some rough mogul and whoop sections, the typical triples, and a huge start straightaway that had the pros on the binders to make the 90-degree left at its end. The smoke from the fireworks clea… actually, we can’t really say that. The smoke hung around all night, and the distances for some in the stands made it look like a fog had rolled in off the lake and into the Rogers Centre. But even still, the fans were treated to great racing as the tour battens down for the last few weeks.
Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Christophe Pourcel earned the win in Toronto, and along the way, wrapped up the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites Championship.
San Manuel/L&M/Yamaha rider James Stewart did what he had to and won Toronto in convincing fashion.
