Canadian MX: JSR snares sixth 250 win of the season — McGourty repeats in 125 East

Deschambault, QC (8/8/04) —Jean Sebastien Roy booked his sixth win of the season in the 250cc Canadian Motocross Championship in Deschambault, QC on Sunday. The Quebec superstar came to win in front of a home province crowd and he did not disappoint.

“After losing last weekend in Moncton because of flat tires I was ready to take my revenge on home soil. I really wanted to win in front of my family, friends and supporters, said JSR.

The Blackfoot Racing Honda Canada pilot won the first moto of the day and finished second behind his teammate Dusty Klatt in moto two. Klatt followed JSR onto the podium in second overall on the strength of 3-1 moto results.


Multi-time champion Blair Morgan, on the comeback trail after serious injuries sidelined him last season, snared the third podium slot, thanks to 2-3 motos. In the first moto, the BMR Yamaha Canada ace made life extremely difficult for his former nemesis JSR.

Atlantic Canada’s Mitchell Cooke, who suffered two mechanical breakdowns last weekend, bounced back with two flawless motos. He took his Diablo Honda to fifth places finishes in both motos to take fourth overall for the day.

Rounding out the top five was Suzuki Canada’s Craig Decker. The only American in the top five, Decker snared 4-7 motos on the demanding and highly technical Deschambault circuit.

Quebec’s other native son, Marco Dubé (Honda) finished seventh overall. The former champ ran up front for a while in both motos but faded twice to ninth at the checkers.

In the 125 East Championship, the American Donnie McGourty registered his second consecutive win of the series. McGourty took his Richmond Racing Kawasaki Canada ride to 2-1 moto results.


Quebec’s Simon Homan (Yamaha) gave fans another reason to celebrate by taking to the podium in second overall, thanks to finishing 3-2 in the motos.

BMR Yamaha’s Doug DeHaan, currently second in the points chase, grabbed the remaining podium position with 4-4 results.

Cementing the top five was the American Casey Clark (Yamaha) in fourth, and Ontario’s Chuck Mesley (KTM Canada) in fifth. Clark snared 6-3 in the motos; Mesley 7-5.

John Dowd (OTSFF Suzuki) and Damon Huffman (Blackfoot Honda) saw their weekend go literally up in smoke when they DNFd the first moto due to engine problems.
