Monster Energy Supermotocross: Over 90 riders fighting for the flag


by Supermotocross de Montréal

Tel que rapporté par Supermotocross Monster Energy

Motocross enthusiasts who attend the 2010 Monster Energy Supermotocross presented by Coors Light and Parts Canada/Thor on October 2nd at Olympic Stadium in Montreal will witness quite a show with 46 riders battling for a spot in the finals in both MX1 and MX2 classes.

In the main event, no less than 20 Americans will line up on the starting line, including US defending champion Jason Thomas from Florida.

Meanwhile, in the Canadian-exclusive MX2, a dozen competitors from English Canada will take on a massive troop of Quebec riders led by the outstanding Kaven Benoît, who just raced in the Red Bull Motocross of Nations south of the border.

MX1: The clash of Titans
Among the top contenders will be Jason Thomas (FL), a two-time winner at the big O (including last year), Dusty Klatt (BC), the 2010 Canadian champ, Nick Wey (MI), who also won in Montreal, Mike Brown (TN), a now fully-healthy Colton Facciotti (BC), Bobby Kiniry and Kyle Keast (ON), who finished third and fourth in the Canadian championship, Josh Demuth (TX) and Teddy Maier (IA). Moreover, it will be very interesting to see Matt Goerke and 16-year-old phenom Justin Starling, both from the Sunshine State. Quebec’s Kaven Benoit, Marc-Antoine Généreux and Simon Homans are likely to get energized by the local crowd, hopefully helping them earn a spot in the finals.

MX2: The all-Canadian battle
Brothers Tyler and Jeremy Medaglia (ON), respectively first and third in the Canadian championship, as well as Kyle Beaton and Spencer Knowles (BC) will head to Montreal in hope of climbing on top of the podium. Standing in their way will be some pretty determined Quebecers led by Kaven Benoît (Notre-Dame-du-Bon-Conseil), fourth in the Canadian championship, Jonathan Parisé (Farnham, 11th), Tim Tremblay (Ste. Jeanne d'Arc), Simon Homans (Sherbrooke) and Marc-Antoine Généreux (St. Césaire). Jeremy Medaglia and Kaven Benoît, along with MX1 rider Kyle Keast, recently competed against the world’s top riders at the Red Bull Motocross of Nations, giving Canada a superb eighth place in MX1+Open class. They are on fire! The MX2 race promises to deliver some of the most exciting action at this Monster Energy Supermotocross.
