Anaheim 2 - Supercross Race Recap

Anaheim 2 marked the first round of the Triple Crown format for the 2018 Supercross series. The Triple Crown features a unique 3 main event format that would see good starts being more critical than the traditional single main event SX format. Shorter main events meant less time to come through the pack.

 

250 SX –

The 250 class saw both Monster Pro-Circuit Kawasaki Fox riders Joey Savatgy and Adam Cianciarulo getting great starts in all 3 main events. Savatgy would go on to win 2 of the 3 mains giving him the overall Triple Crown victory for the night. Joey’s strong performance had him leave Anaheim tied for the Championship points lead.

 

450 SX –

In a night where starts were critical, Ken Roczen struggled to get off the line in the first two main events. A good start and a solid ride in the third main saw Ken finish in 4th place. Ken leaves A2 in 4th place in the overall championship.

 

Still riding himself into race shape after a preseason injury, Chad Reed won the last chance qualifier during the day to get into the night program. Gutty rides in the 3 mains saw Chad come him in 14th overall for the night.

2017 Canadian MX Nationals Season Recap

The 2017 season was challenging at times for the GDR/Honda team but when the final checkers came out, both riders respectably finished the season strong on the overall podium.  Team rookie Dylan Wright started the season off pace from expectations but after shaking the struggles near the halfway point of the series, Dylan began fighting for race wins and eventually advanced himself into 2nd place overall.

Team veteran Colton Facciotti was calculated and consistent from the opening race with the exception of a mid-season illness that slowed him down for several weekends costing valuable points.  Facciotti was a threat every weekend and delivered two overall victories on his way to a 3rd place overall finish.

  

2nd Place - MX2 | Dylan Wright

"This was definitely a season that I learned from.  The way the season started out was challenging for sure and something that we all learned from and worked through.  When things started coming back around, it was rewarding for everyone and we just kept building the momentum every weekend until the final moto of the year." - Dylan Wright.

  

 

MX2 Overall Results:

1st - Shawn Maffenbeier (468)

2nd- Dylan Wright (424)

3rd - Ryan Surratt (423)

 

  

 

3rd Place - MX1 | Colton Facciotti

"It's a long series but we made the most of it when the opportunities were there.  Getting some moto wins and a couple Overall's to finish out the season was good but we came up a little short on the Championship run but that's just part of racing and we're all happy with how the season wrapped up." - Colton Facciotti

  

MX1 Season Overall Results:

1st - Matt Goerke (520)

Deschambualt, QC

Quebec City, QC

"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
