Roadracing update: Alex Dumas is back on the podium

The MotoAmerica series returned to RoadAmerica last weekend, with mixed results for Canadians racing in the series.

The best result was Alex Dumas’s second-place finish in the Twins series. This is Dumas’s first season on the bigger bike, after dominating the Junior Cup last year on his KTM RC390. He’s still learning how to handle the larger machine, and you can bet he’s happy to see he has what it takes to get on the podium while he’s racing with the big boys.

Darren James managed a respectable fifth in the same race, which is also no doubt very encouraging. James had a rough go of it when he went overseas to race in Ireland this spring, and also has seen trouble with his bike setup in MotoAmerica this year, so fifth is probably a welcome finish.

In Supersport, Braeden Ortt finished 11th in Race 1 and Race 2. Supersport could be the toughest fight in MotoAmerica these days, so Ortt will have his work cut out for him if he wants to climb the rankings, with guys like Danny Eslick Hayden Gillim, and Josh Hayes all ahead of him.
