Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM’s Justin Hill has steadily made his way to the top of the results and at the third round of the Eastern Regional 250SX class he grabbed his second career win inside Rogers Centre.
With his solid performances so far this year, Hill is second in the standings just two points out of the lead.
Since the start of the season, Hill has shown he’s got the speed to be at the front. It didn’t take long for that speed to hit a peak in Toronto, earning the fastest qualifier, taking second in his heat before leading nearly every lap of the main event.
“I had a lot of confidence coming into the main after getting the top qualifier and finishing second in the heat,” said Hill. “The bike was running awesome and I’m really happy to be in contention with the championship. I couldn’t be happier.”
Joining Hill at the front of the pack was Alex Frye. After a tough go of it last weekend in Daytona, Frye bounced back in a big way. He started in the top five and kept his KTM 250 SX-F at the front, eventually bringing home a season-best finish of fourth.
Shane McElrath’s luck in the main events continued to fair on the bad side after a great run at the front was cut short due to a flat tire. An unusual issue during a main event, and eventually was credited with 18th.
Next weekend the fourth round takes the racers to Motor City as the series takes over Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.
