Great racing at the MXON and solid rides by the Canucks especially Benoit's 8-12 finishes :!

Followed on social media, damn Shaw satellite didn't get CBS sports. Sounds like Canada had an awesome showing! Way to dig deep boys!

Thanks to Kourtney and the whole support staff for such a great result.

Impressive! Before the net (yes kids there was no net), I remember reading about this race at exotic venues around the globe in mxa, dirt bike, or why. This race is still on my bucket list - maybe GH next year. Love the result team Canada - well done! :v :lol:

Man that was awesome! Really impressed by benoit's rides, especially running top five for most of the first moto.

I could be mistaken but I think this is the only top 10 we've had since 2004(?) and that was an 8th. Blair Morgan raced that one in Lierop on the bike pictured below. I owned that bike afterwards, it had a nasty hit up top :D

Blair was one of those guys that always stepped it up on the big stage - like JSR and Lange.

Yes the battles in the last moto were epic, for positions and the overall. How about Strijbos catching passing and dropping Webb. :eek:

That was awesome to have a finish like that finally! It seems like forever since we even qualified.
Also good to see a canadian ride outside of the country and do well.
