Over the weekend racing returned in Canada as riders took to the gates at Gopher Dunes MX Park for the first MX Tour round of the 2020 Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series. This video (captured on film by Isaiah Reid—@imoto_films on Instagram) surfaced from one of the 250 motos where Chris Dasilva went for a pass on William Cote. Let’s roll the film.
WOAH!! WAYYYYYY too close for comfort!
Luckily, both riders were able to land and ride it out afterwards. HOW DID THEY NOT CRASH?!
This reminded me of a similar incident last year where Kevin Moranz accidently jumped over a lapper during a local arenacross race. Check that: apparently it was in January 2020, even though it feels like it was a year ago (thanks, 2020!).
Similar to the Moranz incident, it’s a miracle neither rider got hurt at Gopher Dunes during this wild, unintentional pass.
