This past weekend was round 1 of the Monster Energy CMRC Pro Motocross Nationals which found both Motul supported teams standing on top of the podium.
Conditions were extremely muddy during the first round at Whispering Pines Raceway in Kamloops, British Columbia. But through the paddling feet and missing goggles always stands a victor.
Matt Gorke aboard his Monster Energy / Leading Edge / Kawaski found himself on the top step of the podium in both moto's of the MX1 class while Rockstar Energy / OTSFF / Motovan / Yamaha's Bobby Kiniry finished out the podium with 3-3 finish's.
