From August 3rd to 6th, Motocross Deschambault warmly welcomes you for a fifth consecutive year!

In collaboration with the Canadian Motosport Racing Corp (CMRC) on August 3rd, 4th and 5th, it’s time to make way for the Eastern Canadian Amateur National (ECAN) presented by Motovan, and to the Eastern Canadian Women’s Nationals! On Sunday, August 6, we’ll all be looking out at the 9th round of the 2017 Rockstar Energy National Championship presented by Honda, featuring all the best pros of the Canadian circuit.

2017 Novelty!

For the very first time this year at a motocross event: a Straight Rhythm race! Motocross Deschambault offers the ultimate sprint on a straight line known to fans of adrenaline. A new 1,200-foot track was specially designed for this event. Intermediate and pros runners are invited to register for free by email at before July 31st. 30 names will be selected to qualify on the evenings of August 3rd and 4th, from 7 pm to 8:30 pm. The grand finale will take place on Sunday at 2 pm and the winners will be awarded giant trophies in addition to prize money.

This week of racing attracts more than 700 drivers and will crown the best riders in Eastern Canada. Participants in the Top 10 will receive awards such as giant trophies, plaques and medals, while among the pros the amount of the purses in prize money will reach $20,000. For each class, the Top 3 amateurs   will climb on the podium to receive special medals made for the occasion. Note that the promoter will be covering the cost of a CMRC license for the weekend’s racing for amateurs. In each category, the Top 3 will receive giant trophies, while plaques will be given to the riders from 4th to 10th places.
