Pat Smage remained undefeated in this year’s AIReS AMA/NATC National MotoTrials Championship Series by taking a double win at rounds seven and eight of the 10-round schedule at Sipapu Ski Resort in Vadito, New Mexico.

Ranging in altitude from 7200 feet at the start and going up to 9000 feet at the highest section, the high elevation of the event presented a unique challenge to the riders, however, Smage overcame the elements and the competition to take the win on both days with little problems.

Second and third on Saturday went to Smage’s Sherco USA teammates Logan Bolopue and Bryan Roper, while on Sunday the two riders flipped positions with Roper claiming second and Bolopue third.
