Old man winter decided to show up just before this past weekends Royal Distributing Cup snowcross in Lindsay, dumping close to a foot of fresh snow in Central Ontario.
The CSRA National Round 4 event, original scheduled to take place in Barrie, had been moved to Lindsay due to issues within the OLG facility.
The Supertrax/ Byers Motorsports/ Polaris team picked up a rider to compete in the Pro-Lite division for the Lindsay #2 races. Tom Adams, from Peterborough, Ontario, came out to race, for his first time on a sled this season, after recovering from an injury this fall.
Tom started the weekend off with a flying start, launching his Dayco belt equipped Polaris IQ into the lead and taking the win in Moto 1. He didn’t get the best start in Moto 2 finishing 7th. In the final, Tom rode a great race finishing just outside the top 10 in 11th.
On Sunday, Tom hit the kill switch in his first moto, falling to last and battling back to 7th. In moto 2, Tom grabbed a good start and was battling for the lead majority of the race. Just after the white flag, he landed awkward and came off the sled finishing 10th.
Getting the last pick in the final, Tom started in the back row in the extended lapped final. Tom rode well but fatigue set in near the end of the race finishing 13th.
Jamie hit the track on Satruday in the Pro Open class taking a 7th in Moto 1. In moto 2, he was running a solid 3rd but got into another rider half way through the race causing him to come off the sled finishing 9th. Jamie started in the back row for the final and got a decent start setting him mid pack finishing 7th at the checkered.
With the sun shining bright on Sunday, Jamie finished 5th in Moto 1 and 7th in Moto 2. He qualified 6th for the final and grabbed the inside starting position.
His IQ racer and Woody’s studs hooked up and got a great start in the final and had him battling for 3rd for the first part of the race.
About half way through the final, Jamie landed in a hole in the landing of the triple in the rhythm section, tweaking his wrist and tossing him off the sled. Jamie got back on the sled finishing 8th.
The team’s next stop will be this weekend at the Grand Prix de Valcourt where Jamie will compete against some of the top Pro’s from around the world.
