A pair of riders from the CMX Powersports Moto X team took their talents to Edmonton for the Amateur Nationals this past weekend. 

Trehvan McMorris was having a great race in the 250 Junior class before overshooting a large double sending him over the bars. He got up and on his bike in 17th position and battled back to a solid ninth place finish. 

Trehvan was next on the line in the 250 Junior Open where he rode excellent the entire race and grabbed the fourth-place spot. The afternoon race ended up getting cancelled, which stopped him from trying to get on the podium.

Jessie Gardner rode in the Junior 250 Open class as well. Gardner rode well on a very tough track and managed a seventh-place finish.  Gardner’s afternoon was also cut short due to the cancelation.
