Cody Miller Podiums at Montreal ATV Supercross
staff

Out of sixteen entries in the ATV class main event at the Montreal Supercross on Saturday September 29, Yamaha's Cody Miller came out with the overall win in front of 50,000 people, as Greg Gee and Yamaha’s Richard Pelchat rounded out the podium. We tracked down Cody and Richard to find out all about the event.

 

Cody! You won the race! Congrats!

“It was awesome. It was really a lot of fun. The track was pretty technical this year, and it was a cool experience.

 

So, you’ve raced the Montreal Supercross before then?

I raced it in 2005, and I was one spot away from the podium; I got fourth. It was more technical this year. It was a pretty good track. It was a lot easier to make passes on this year, so that helped me out a lot.

 

How was the start for you?

In the first [Warm-Up] moto, I started around eighth and passed up to fourth; I ended up fourth in the first moto. That gave me fourth position on the gate for the main. In the main, I think I started around sixth or so, then I made a few passes and I was right behind Greg Gee, Richard Pelchat and Jasmin Plante. There was one big triple jump that had a small downside on it—it was pretty tricky—Jasmin hyper-extended his knee whenever he landed and that pulled him off. Then Richard was leading the race, with Greg in second and I was in third. We were all kind of tight and then Richard clipped that same triple and he went over the bars. I was in second; Greg and I were battling it out for first and second for probably four laps. We passed each other back and forth several times over a triple jump in the back, and then one lap I took the line that he was anticipating me trying to make the same pass on him, so then I took a different line and passed him over the triple jump.

  

Did you know you could win this thing, or were you just hoping for any opportunity?

I was basically staying patient. I’ve raced with Greg a good bit this year. I was following and studying his lines, taking my time, I knew it was a ten-lap race. About the seventh lap, I passed him.

 

So, that triple was giving a lot of riders some problems?  

I was on that triple jump in the third practice, and I came up a little bit short and kind of smacked the bottoms of my feet and my ankles. I had to pull off right then, and almost didn’t even want to race because my feet were hurting so bad, but I got my ankles all taped up by the paramedics there, and it wasn’t too bad during the race.

 

I saw your brother Hunter also had a good ride… 

Yea, Hunter got in a pile-up on the start, and then he came back up to fifth.

 

How was the crowd?

The fans were awesome. Every time you hit a big jump or Greg and I would pass each other back and forth, you could hear a huge uproar; they were loud. It was cool.

 

 

 

Can-Am is back on the podium at the Olympic Stadium. Greg Gee riding an Epic Racing-prepped DS 450TM ATV took second in the main event to put the Can­Am name back on the Supercross map, thirty years after Jimmy Ellis' win on a Can­AmTM 250 MX motocross bike at the first Montreal Supercross.

“This really was an emotional night for everyone at BRP,” said Bernard Guy, ATV marketing director, BRP. “Bringing the Can-Am brand back to this race means so much to those who worked hard on the DS 450 project; to take second and lead the race for a bit made the night even more special."

Both Gee and Sage Baker entered the Supercross, however, a first-turn pileup prevented Baker from challenging for the podium. Gee had a great race and rode his DS 450 quad flawlessly to a second-place finish.
