Team Canada 16th at MX of Nations

Last weekend team Canada placed a very impressive 16th in the Olympics of motocross, the Motocross of Nations. Jeremy Medaglia MX1 (450), Kyle Keast MX3 (open) and Kaven Benoit MX2 (250) represented Canada in Lakewood, Colorado. Many people had little faith in the team but they proved the naysayers wrong qualifying for the A finals, which is a feat in its self. From there they continued to do their country proud placing 16th overall. Well done boys!

The elevation and heat took its tole on the riders. Jeremy Medaglia gave it his all in moto 1 so much that he came down with heat exhaustion and the medics wouldn't clear him for moto 2
Kaven Benoit put in solid rides against a stacked MX2 field

The USA team of Dungey, Short and Canard won with Belgium 2nd and Germany 3rd
