Eli Tomac showing off for the crowd in opening ceremonies.
Despite Jordan Smith’s subpar performance, he still sits 3rd in points. He is also one of four riders that has lead laps on the 250 East.
The start of the 450 main. Notice how far Broc Tickle‘s rear end is out. Lucky he didn’t high-side.
Malcolm Stewart‘s best finish on the season has been 10th place. He has the speed to do much better as he always qualifies much higher, but just can’t seem to put it together in the main.
The 450 Supercross podium from left to right: Ryan Dungey, Eli Tomac, Broc Tickle.
Josh Grant got off to a 15th place start to work up to 11th on the night.
Vince Friese got off to a top five start but fell over in a corner before he completed the first lap.
The start of the second 250 SX heat race.
Dylan Ferrandis got the holeshot in his heat race and ran away with the win.
Ryan Dungey put on a hard charge in Toronto. He came around the first lap in 9th and worked his way up to 2nd. He only lost 3 point to Eli keeping almost a full race lead at 24 points.
Anthony Rodriguez came from the back of the pack to finish 10th.
Dylan Ferrandis got the hotshot in the main like he did his Heat race and challenged Joey Savatgy for the lead going back and forth for the first 8 minutes of the race. He then faded a bit then crashed in a corner. He got up and salvaged a 5th, which was still his best finish of the season.

Colt Nichols won his Heat race.
Joey Savatgy was one of the only riders doing a big quad in a rhythm section. He made a lot of passes there, but it eventually bit him crashing in the section putting him back in 6th losing valuable championship points.
Justin Barcia won his Semi.
It looked like Chad Reed was feeling comfortable again.
Marvin Musquin‘s results have gone downward each race since his win in Texas.
