AT MONTREAL SUPERCROSS
Can-Am DS 450 on Podium in its First Indoor
Valcourt, Quebec, October
1, 2007 - 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 Can Am name back on the
Supercross map, thirty years after Jimmy Ellis'
win on a Can AmTM 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.
