The Supertrax/ Byers Motorsports/ Polaris team attended the 32nd running of the Grand Prix de Valcourt which played host to the CSRA National Round 5.
The top snowcross racers from 4 race circuits (CSRA, ISOC, ECS, SCMX) came together for this weekends races.
The Valcourt track was similar to past years taking place inside the Ice oval track and included the famous 100ft+ finish line jump.
Visibility was a factor in Saturdays racing as Valcourt got hit with a blizzard Friday accumulating almost a foot of fresh snow.
Jamie hit to the track in moto 1 with a strong showing finishing a solid 7th. He was a little trigger happy in moto 2 jumping the start light and was placed in the back row for the re-start.
Jamie put his head down and charged to a 7th place finish. Unfortunately his qualifying results weren’t enough to make the main event.
Bad luck came Jamie’s way on Sunday morning. During the practice session, he had an awkward landing in the rhythm section rolling over onto his ankle. Jamie did starts on Sunday before heading home having his ankle checked out.
The next scheduled event is CSRA National Round 6 returning the Georgian Downs in Barrie, Ontario February 22-23.
We will take the week to recover and see how Jamie is feeling come next weekend.
