Yellowknife snowcross racer Brandon Bradbury came home with a second-place podium finish and a sixth place finish in his first races of the season in Sault Ste Marie, Ont.

He thinks that puts him in the top three of the overall standings in his category.

“It's looking good so far,” Bradbury says. “As long as I can keep plugging away, keep in good finishes, keeping consistent, I think it will be a good year this year.”

Bradbury says he'll be watching tape of his previous races to find any way to get to the top of that podium.

His next chance comes Jan. 18 and 19 in Rouyn-Noranda, Que.

His goal is the be the Canadian Snowcross Champion.
