Three wins for Cannonier in motocross races
Aaron Cannonier stamped his authority all over the Boxing Day motocross racing spectacle at the Bermuda Motorsports Park at Southside, St David’s.
The experienced rider enjoyed a clean sweep of wins in the three heats contested in the expert class to claim bragging rights.
Allan DeGraff Jr finished second behind Cannonier, with Shakir Smith rounding off the podium in the expert class.
Letroy Trott edged Jason DeCouto by two points to top the podium in the Over-30 class, with former Willow Cuts cricketer Bobby Lambe, one of the most senior riders at the track, rolling back the years to finish third.
Jamico Smith-Hollis also had three victories to claim the novice class, with Makai Tucker finished second and Kenton Trott third.
Jadon Simmons won all three heats in the 85cc class. Jazuri Thompson pipped Q-Ran Raynor for second.
Thompson took the chequered flag in all three heats in the 65cc class, with Aiden Simmons edging Demiaz Trott for second on a tie-break after both riders finished with 60 points on the day.
Simmons went one better in the 50cc class as he won all three heats to finish comfortably ahead of Z’Naz Jones who took second and Ajani Foggo who placed third.
Mikah Elves reigned supreme in the Pee Wee class after winning all three heats, with Mathias Bean finishing second and Foggo third.
“Overall it was a highly productive day,” Gannon Trott, the Bermuda Motocross Club president, said. ”It was a very good turnout and we had some riders that haven’t been riding for a little while that came back out.
“Safety is first and when we go through a whole day and the ambulance doesn’t have to leave for any reason then that’s a successful day.”
