The ANQ’s are long completed across the country. In the west and again in the east amateur nationals have recognized the best of each region’s best. Loretta Lynn’s National Motocross has tested the elite. The pro national series has established each class leader at the pro level.
Now it all comes together yet again, for one grand finale in “Motocross Town”, Walton Ontario. The Canadian Grand National Championship title chase for amateurs and the National Open pro and semi-pro Sunday. Follow the opening action with live video, live audio, live timing and tons of social media feeds as it happens.
The Canadian Grand National Pro Open is breaking new ground in 2016. The winner-takes-all Superfinal – the ultimate shootout with a $30,000 purse up for grabs – the one race in 2016 you cannot miss. We could see Millsaps vs Thompson, Maffenbeier vs Goerke, Wright vs Benoit, Facciotti vs Alix, Crown vs Medaglia, Clason vs Petitis, Alessi vs Nauditt !! The Pro Open Superfinal will match the best riders from all classes against each other for the first and only time in the season. MX1 pro vs MX2 pro? Is the bike size an advantage given the radical track changes? Pro vs semi pro keeping in mind Joey Crown’s thrilling 2015 performance? There are multiple ‘Walton Swords’ already in this group, can anyone repeat? Who will come out on top and claim the sword as 25th King of Walton?
Concert included again this year! Join the celebration, get your tickets as Cold Creek County and Jordan McIntosh will be performing on Friday, August 19th.
