Leading Edge/Monster Kawasaki’s Teddy Maier came into Moncton with some breathing room atop the CMRC MX2 championship standings based on his second place finish last week in Quebec. He added to that lead with an overall win at the scenic RiverGlade national. His second moto ride is the type of thing that champions do, which is make something out of nothing.
“Terrible” Teddy (it’s a reference to the old Viking warrior, not indicative of Teddy’s riding so relax) was so far back in the opening laps and he had his title rival, Eric Nye, leading the moto. It didn’t look good for Maier but he put his head down and picked riders off one by one to end up third and save the overall. More importantly, he gained more points on Nye with four motos left and has a nineteen point lead.
