Round 3 of the Rockstar Triple Crown Championship took place in Quebec last night and featured a controversial finish between title contenders Cole Thompson and Colton Facciotti.
Facciotti held the lead over Thompson going into the final corner when Thompson came in hot and the two made contact going over the finish line. Facciotti went off the side of the finish line jump and landed on his back. Thompson was credited with the win, with Facciotti taking second.
Facciotti did not attend the podium celebration after the race. We’ll update this post once we know more. Phil Nicoletti finished third.
