Canadian Motocross Nationals - Round 7

Truro, Nova Scotia

The Beautiful Pleasant Valley MX Park was the venue for Round 7 of the Rockstar Energy Canadian MX Nationals and the first of two stops in the Atlantic region. MX2 - Dylan Wright: 3rd Place (3-3) With three consecutive podiums, MX2 rider Dylan Wright has been building momentum and salvaging points every race. Determined to land on the podium again, Wright battled hard to a 3rd place in Moto 1. In Moto 2, Dylan battled for the lead early in the race but lost positions while avoiding a near crash incident with another rider. Putting his head down, Wright worked his way back up to 3rd place at the finish. With 3-3 Moto scores, Dylan earned himself a 4th consecutive Overall podium. MX1 - Colton Facciotti: 7th Place (9-5) Colton Facciotti has been solid all season and is within reach of the MX1 Championship as it nears the closing rounds. In Moto 1 at Pleasant Valley, Facciotti went down with another rider on the first lap and was slow getting up leaving him far behind. Charging back from dead last, Colt finished the race with a determined 9th. In Moto 2, another crash in the early laps made Facciotti put his head down again and race back to 5th place finish. Not the weekend Facciotti was hoping for but the 4-time champ pushed through and salvaged what he could for points.
