Australian rider Brett Metcalfe qualified on top spot in MX1.

The 2013 champion grabbed a top five start in moto one before finishing a strong race in second place. Backing up the first race, Brett gained an early lead in moto 2. Leading for 10 laps of the race he was eventually run down by Colton Facciotti to finish in second and secure second overall on the day.

American Matt Georke finished with a pair of third placings ensuring he maintained his lead in the championship.

Metcalfe stands in third place in the MX1 standings and is still a chance to take out his second Canadian title pending results. After round nine he stands 48 points behind first place Georke and 35 points behind second placed Facciotti.
