Kaven Benoit was already one of the fastest in qualification when he showed up to the gate for the 1st 450 moto of the day. After a good start, Kaven found himself in the top 3 right away, battling for 1st place. 30 minutes of racing in wet and rough conditions later, Benoit crossed the finish line in 2nd place. After finishing so close from the top step of the podium, Kaven lined up for the 2nd moto with the overall in his sights. Right off the gate, his KTM 450 SX-F powered him up the steep starting hill to grab the Holeshot award. Kaven led wire to wire without letting the pressure coming from behind distract him and won both the 2nd moto and the overall.

“It feels so good to get this monkey off my back. This weekend was quite sandy and it made me feel right at home. Everything was lined up perfectly and I gave all I had to get back on the top step of the podium.”
