Back on the Rockstar Triple Crown SX Tour again for this year is the historic Montreal Supercross held in the famed Olympic Stadium. We have had quite a pause in the schedule in Canada since mid-August when the Rockstar Triple Crown MX tour wrapped up in Walton, ON. Montreal has always been a mainstay in the moto calendar and when it was removed a few years back it really left a void in our year of top moto events in Canada to hit. Last year they chose to reboot the supercross and bringing some top-bill US athletes up to add notoriety seemed to help. It sounded like numbers were up from last year so that's a bonus. Everyone seems pretty happy to have it back on the schedule and we hope it will return again next year. Here's a look at some of the two-wheel action from Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Quebec.

One of the cool features of Montreal Supercross is when they bring out the Legends of Montreal SX. Carl Vaillancourt was one of the local legends that hyped up the crowd.
Another pro legend is Quebec's own Marco Dube.
