Canadian Motocross Nationals - Round 9

Aug 6th, 2017

With Championship pressure reaching peak heights, every moto has become more pivotal in the title chases. In the days leading into the race, the rain came down in heavy amounts which proved to be a wild card element that would be a factor all day long.

MX2 - Dylan Wright. (14-8) 8th Place

With four Overall podium finishes in a row, Dylan Wright was looking to keep his streak alive at round 9. Starting the day with a 3rd place qualifying time, things were look optimistic in the muddy conditions. Once the gate dropped for the Moto's, Wright struggled with first lap crashes in both moto's and was forced to navigate his way back through the pack to salvage 14-8 Moto scores for a 9th place finish.
"I started the day strong but the track was challenging in the mud so it wasn't much fun out there" - Dylan Wright


MX1 - Colton Facciotti. (1-1) 1st Place

When track conditions are as brutal as they were, getting the holeshot is imperative to contend for the win. Facciotti rocketed out of the gate in both Motos, grabbing the Royal Distributing holeshot award in Moto 1 and narrowly missing it in Moto 2. Facciotti would lead every lap of the day on his way to a 1-1 sweep for his second MX1 Overall victory of the season.

"At this point in the series, putting in consistent weekends until the end is going to be key." - Colton Facciotti
