After last seasons race was cancelled, the CSRA returned to Chicopee Ski Resort in Kitchener, Ontario to some of the most snow we’ve ever had at the event.
With more snow, the CSRA crew was able to extend the length of the track. Crowds filled the stands and along the track up the hill both days of the event.
In Saturday’s Pro Open action, Jamie hit the track in Moto 1 taking a 5th place finish. In Moto 2, he came off the sled halfway through the race in the down hill section, getting his foot caught in the toe-hold and dragged 40ft by the sled.
Jamie had injured his ankle a few weeks prior to this race and this brought it back. In the final, Jamie raced to a 10th place finish.
On Sunday, Jamie struggled with his ankle injury as the track had a lot of hard pounding landings and could not ride his normal race. In the motos, he finished 5th and 6th. In the final, he got a decent start and ran 6th for the first couple of laps before falling back finishing 10th.
The next stop is the CSRA Finale at Horseshoe Valley Ski Resort near Barrie for the Dayco National Championships. This is the home-town race for Byers Motorsports and the event always brings out a huge crowd to watch the races in the spring weather.
New for this year, the Pro and Pro-Lite class will be racing 3-days, starting with Friday night under the lights with the Vintage snowmobile races and Freestyle show. Currently Jamie is sitting 7th overall in Pro Open National Points.
