The 2013 champion secured a championship third place after a stellar season including three overall victories – rounds one, four and six.

The Team Monster Energy Thor Kawasaki rider went 5-1 over the weekend, winning the final MX1 race of the season on board his KX450F.

Metcalfe finished the tenth and final round in third place overall behind Cole Thompson (3-2) in second and Team Honda Canada GDR’s Colton Facciotti (1-3) in first.

The round victory for Facciotti ensured he finished in second place ahead of Metcalfe in the final championship standings.

A fourth place finish for Yamaha rider Matt Goerke (2-5) was enough for him to take out the overall 2015 Championship. Entering the final round Goerke had a lead of 17 points but still had to keep his head down to ensure the title. The American rider had an extremely consistent year finishing on the podium overall in all but two rounds (rounds three and ten).
