Royal Distributing Fox Canada KTM points leader Kaven Benoit rolled into Quebec with confidence of having his fans lining the picturesque track. The points leader qualified great on his KTM 250 SX. Benoit pulled a huge Royal Distributing holeshot in Moto 1 and laid down some unbelievably fast lap times which allowed the Fox Canada backed rider to stretch out a big lead over the entire field. The Quebec native settled into a comfortable pace and crossed the finish line with a convincing lead grabbing a ton of points towards the championship in the process. After that dominant performance Benoit lined up in the gate ready to battle for another win. Benoit raced off the start and was passed into the lead only to run into some on track drama from his competitor. Picking his race machine up quickly and getting back on the track Benoit proved he is an incredibly composed rider. Despite the atmosphere of adversity Kaven soldiered through and claimed 4th in the Moto earning him 2nd overall for the day. Royal Distributing Fox KTM's Benoit carries a 41 point lead going into the final round in Walton next weekend.

Royal Distributing Fox KTM Team rider Kaven Benoit finished a solid 2nd overall. He went 1-4 for 2nd Overall in Moncton. Kaven was able to pull the Royal Holeshot in Moto 1 and rounded the first turn in 3rd in Moto 2. MX1Team rider Tyler Medaglia obtained two 7th place finishes in both MX1 Moto’s and finished inside the top 10 with a 7th place overall finish. Sunday’s racing proved to be extremely challenging as the track conditions were less than ideal. The track was extremely dry, hard packed and littered with rocks. Passing was no easy task as large rocks sprayed the riders attempting to make a pass. Aside from the track conditions, the weather could not have been better. It was a beautiful sunny August day without a cloud in the sky. There were a tremendous amount of spectators on hand to witness their favorite pro riders. Without question, Moncton had the largest amount of spectators.
Inside this issue… Over the last several years many of the smaller enduro brands have made a real push in both quality and marketing. We put the 2014 Gas Gas EC300 Racing paces and you can see what we thought about the Spanish import... One of the biggest names in off-road is without a doubt Chris Birch and we had the opportunity sit down with him for an exclusive Canadian interview. Birch is one of the nicest guys in off-road and he was very generous with his time. See what he had to say about racing, teaching, and the future... At the 2014 Erzbergrodeo we had a strong Canadian contingent attend and we talked to them to get their opinions of one of the hardest races on the planet...
