The Montréal Supercross is back! After a 6 year break, the event is finally back for all the fans to enjoy. The event attracted some big names from the U.S. and Europe, competing in the 450 Pro Class, including riders such as Malcolm Stewart, Colt Nichols, Josh Hansen and Thomas Ramette, to name a few. In the women’s class, Ève Brodeur was the favorite and didn’t disappoint with a perfect race for the win!
The track, built by the Jetwerks crew, was quite difficult: steep jumps, hoops section and big triple. It was definitely intimidating for the local riders who don’t have many opportunities to ride this type of track. Supercross tracks are very rare in the Québec region and not nearly as big and complex as the one built inside the Big O for this event. Although the track gave the riders many challenges, no one turned down the opportunity to showcase their skills in front of the Montréal crowd.
The 4-time Canadian Woman’s MX champ Ève Brodeur gave another high-level performance with a solid first place finish! The Shot Race Gear rider is no stranger to the top of the podium, but this one must have felt very special for the girl from Laval, QC, who was racing in front of her home crowd.
Ève showed everyone her talent and domination in her category. She pulled off a perfect start to win the holeshot and never looked back. A few laps in, she seemed more confident with the track and started to jump sections she wasn’t jumping during the qualifying, allowing her to separate herself from the rest of the group. She ended up on the highest step of the podium, along with Sarah-Kim Villeneuve, who took second place and her long-time friend Emilie Jade Léveillé finished third.
