2018 SX Tour – Round 3

*Use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

 

The Rockstar Energy Triple Crown series nears the end of its championship battle and only eight points separated first and second place in the chase for the 100k Triple Crown prize money.  Round 3 of the Championship battle was hosted inside the Videotron Centre in Quebec City.

 

Dylan Wright #12 – SX1:

After a disappointing opening round of the SX Tour in Montreal, Dylan Wright was sidelined for round two and made his return to racing at round three in the SX1 class.  With SX1 teammate in a championship battle, the added competition would prove to be a factor.  Qualifying for the night show in 9th place, speculations that Dylan’s motives for the night’s racing were in question so the GDR Honda team decided to have Dylan sit out from the night’s racing to avoid any discrepancies. 

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – SX1:

The tension around the points battle between Facciotti and Triple Crown Series leader, Cole Thompson was peaking in Quebec City.  The gap was only 8 points with two main events left to go.  With aggressive riding coming into play several times earlier in the Triple Crown series, Facciotti’s strategy was to get the holeshot and check out for the Main Event win and avoid drama.   Getting another Royal Distributing Holeshot, Colton clicked off clean laps while leading the entire main event until disaster struck in the last corner from a charging Cole Thompson. Facciotti was ejected across the finish line, but did not remount and went to the hospital for further evaluation. This now drops Facciotti down 11 points from the Triple Crown title with one main event left.  At this time, it’s unknown if Colton will be recovered to race round 4.

Motocross Of Nations

*Use the arrows to scroll gallery*

 

The Motocross of Nations made its return to North American soil for the first time in 8 years and the infamous Red Bud Track & Trail was set to host the 72nd running of the MXoN.  Billed as the “Olympics of Motocross,” thirty-one participating countries select three riders to represent in each class; MXGP, MX2 and Open.  For Team Canada, Fox Racing rider and new Canadian National Motocross Champion Colton Facciotti was to lead the charge for Canada in the MXGP class.  Alongside him would be newly crowned Canadian MX2 Champion, Jess Pettis and two-time Canadian National Champion, Tyler Medaglia.

 

Competing in his sixth MXoN, Colton Facciotti has experienced the intensity and demands of the international competition format. This year with the event being held in North America, the Canadian fans were out in full colours representing the red & white giving the team and its riders extra encouragement as they lined up.

 

The international racing format consists of a two-day structure with Qualifiers on Saturday and Main Event racing on Sunday.  Facciotti qualified in 17th place on Saturday and the team collectively qualified 11th overall for the Main Event.  In Moto 1, Facciotti narrowly missed a first corner pile up and slide through in third place putting him up front to battle.  Needing to remove his goggles for better vision, Colton held on for a hard fought 9th place finish. In Moto 2, Facciotti was given the lesser gate pick from team strategy and suffered a poor start.  Stuck battling in the back of the pack, Colt had to remove his goggles again from the harsh muddy conditions and finished the race in 26th place for a respectable 9th overall individual score.  Collectively the Canadian team finished with an 11th overall at the 2018 Motocross of Nations.

Rockstar Energy SX Tour – Round 2

*Use arrows to scroll entire gallery*

 

Round 2 of the Rockstar Energy SX Tour was at Delaware Speedway in London, Ontario.  Built within the car racing oval, the SX track had a straight rhythm style with 2 main rhythm lanes making the majority of the layout with a few corners built around it.  The track soil being entirely clay, the base was rock hard and demanded precise throttle control to make any passes. With Dylan Wright sidelined from an injury he sustained at Round 1, the GDR Honda Squad only had MX1 rider Colton Facciotti in the line up.  In the MX2 class, freshly turned Pro and Fox Brigade graduate, Jake Tricco was in the line up.

 

Jake Tricco #527 – MX2:

With no Supercross experience and minimal Arenacross experience, Jake Tricco lined up for his first attempt at racing in the Pro class at Round 2 of the SX Tour.  Riding conservative with the primary goal of gaining experience with each lap on the track, Tricco started the day with a 10th place qualifying time and then stepped it up in his Heat race with a 3rd place finish.  In the Main Event, Tricco rode smooth and consistent in 5th place from start to finish giving him a solid top 5 in his Pro debut.  Jake will sit out Round 3 but rejoin series for Round 4 in Hamilton.

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – MX1:

Carrying momentum from the technical Montreal Supercross track, Colton Facciotti came into Round 2 setting the 1st place qualifying time and then scored 2nd place in his Heat race.  Hoping to inch closer to the Triple Crown points lead, Facciotti needed to take the win over points leader, Cole Thompson.  Starting the Main Event in 6th place, Facciotti delicately worked his way into 3rd place at the halfway stage of the race. Then benefiting from a fallen rider, Facciotti advanced into 2nd place where he finished out the race, but was unfortunately behind Triple Crown points leader, Cole Thompson which now puts Colton down 8 points.

2018 Supercross Montreal

*Use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

 

After a five-year hiatus, the infamous Supercross Montreal returned to “le belle province”. Hosted inside one of the city’s most prized landmarks, the Olympic Stadium transforms the former baseball field into a supercross track inviting 15,000+ fans in.  Almost thirty-six years since the Montreal Expos played their final MLB game at the stadium, the monumental building is still rich with heritage and impressive to be racing in.  Among the international field of riders competing, the Fox Moto team had the GDR Honda squad of Dylan Wright & Colton Facciotti, former AMA SX winner Josh Hill, and Canadian FMX rider Kyle Demelo.

 

Dylan Wright #12 – MX2:

With minimal Supercross experience, Dylan Wright put in work post-motocross season in preparation for the Montreal race.  Qualifying struggles lingered with Dylan all day as he took two very hard crashes that left him bruised and slow moving, but he still managed to score well with a 4th place lap time.  Dylan was aiming for podium finish to start the SX Tour season off, but unfortunately still feeling the effects of his earlier crashes, Wright went down on the opening lap of the MX2 main event and had to pull off from the race with a DNF.

 

Kyle Demelo - FMX:

Canadian Freestyle rider Kyle Demelo performed during the intermission of the races for the Montreal motorhead fans and put in shows that got people out of their seat.  Rehabbing off several severe injuries, Kyle’s return to action in Montreal was the kick off to his 2018/2019 season that starts with the upcoming Nitro Circus tour.

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – MX1:

Fresh off his 5th Canadian Motocross Championship, Colton Facciotti had no time to waste before SX Season kicked off only weeks later.  A former winner of the Montreal Supercross, Colton has sufficient SX skills to take a victory any year that he lines up.  Qualifying in 6th amongst a heavy stack of international imports, Facciotti was aiming for a podium result to make it through the first round and remain in contention for the Triple Crown.  Facciotti Finished the night with 5-10-9 Main Event scores, placing him just short of that in 7th overall.

 

Josh Hill #75 – MX1:

International rider and former AMA supercross race winner, Josh Hill made his second appearance in the 2018 Triple Crown Series, but this time to mix it up in the SX Tour.  With top supercross results in his past, Hill’s racing has a more fun approach that keeps his riding entertaining to watch on the track.  With the goal of a top 5 overall finish, Hill made it happen with 9-3-6 Main Event scores.

2018 MX Tour – Round 9

*Use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

 

The Final round of the MX Tour Championship rolled into the historic Walton Raceway to crown the 2018 series Champions.  Coming into the race, MX1 rider Colton Faccioti had held the red plate the entire series and opened up a lead of 22 points against the field.  Not enough to become comfortable, Facciotti had to maintain his consistency all the way until this final race.  With 4 Canadian National Championships to his name already, Facciotti is no stranger to a tight Championship points battle and looked calm and collected on this race day.

 

Dylan Wright #12 – MX2:

Having won numerous Amateur Grand National Championship at Walton Raceway over the years, MX2 rider Dylan Wright was anxious to end his season on a high note on the familiar track.  Qualifying the day in 4th position in some muddy morning conditions, Dylan regrouped for Moto 1.  An unfortunate first corner crash forced Wright to start the moto in 32nd place but the determination of Dylan was not going to be matched by anyone that day and he passed twenty-four riders in three laps, but wasn’t done yet.  Wright kept charging his way into 2nd place on the closing three laps of the race where he would have to settle. In Moto 2, Dylan was determined to end the season with a Victory and took the lead on lap 6, setting the fastest lap of the race again, and then never looked back. Wright rode it in for his third overall victory of the season and left everyone feeling the heat for the upcoming season.

“being out of the Championship hunt, I had a lot to prove today and I wanted to take one more overall before the break in the season." Dylan Wright. 1st Overall.

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – MX1

Championship race day had everyone on the edge of the seat except one guy, MX1 rider Colton Facciotti.  A comfortable Facciotti qualified the day in 2nd place and knew exactly what he needed to do to bring home his 5th Canadian Motocross Championship. In Moto 1, Facciotti had a great jump off the gate, rounding the first corner in second place and then did what he’s been doing all season; rode smart and consistent all the way to the checkers for a 2nd place finish.  In Moto 2, Facciotti didn’t lay down and was still going for the overall win. Riding like a veteran champion, Colton took the moto win securing himself the overall victory and earning his 5th Canadian National MX Championship.

“it feels good to add another Championship plate to the wall. It was a long series and keeping that red plate in hand the whole way was definitely key to staying calm during the off weekends.” Colton Facciotti -1st  Overall/MX1 series Champion

BUDDS CREEK RACE RECAP

*Use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

This previous weekend the AMA National Motocross series rolled into Budds Creek for the second to last round of the 2018 outdoor series. Once again, Fox team riders would be in the MX19 Motocross product line looking to finish the year strong.

Hot temperatures and high humidity would greet the riders as they kicked off the weekend with qualifying. In the 450 class, Fox team rider Ken Roczen continues to build strength and consistency after coming off an injury that saw him sit out the bulk of the Supercross series. Ken would put in a strong qualifying session posting the 5th fastest time. In the 250 class, Monster Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders Austin Forkner and Joey Savatgy are looking to capture an overall win before the season ends.

 

450 CLASS

In Moto 1, Ken has a great start - rounding the first turn in 2nd. He would immediately challenge Marvin Musquin for the lead and take the top spot after a couple more turns. Ken put a nice gap between himself and Marvin early in the race. With about 4 minutes to go in the moto, Marvin would start to put heavy pressure on Ken for the lead. But he would hold Marvin off and take the win by 8 seconds.

Kenny got out to another good start in the second moto, finishing the first lap in the top 5. Knowing he would need to finish in front of leader Marvin Musquin to get the overall win for the day, Ken set his sights on the lead. Midway through the race, he made the pass for the lead and started to pull away from Musquin. Kenny would hold the lead for much of the moto. But, with about 5 minutes to go, Eli Tomac had worked his way into second and started to challenge Ken for the lead. Tomac would make the pass and go on to take the win. Kenny would hold on to finish 3rd in the moto and 2nd overall on the day.

 

250 CLASS

Moto 1 would see Austin Forkner get out to a top 5 start with Savatgy buried in the pack. Austin would work his way to 3rd early in the moto and would hold that position to the finish. Joey was able to work his way up to 7th early in the race but would end up finishing the moto in 11th.

The second moto would see Austin get out to another good start with Joey struggling to get off the line. Austin would battle and hold 3rd until the late stages of the race. Coming under pressure from Mitchel Harrison, the two riders would nearly collide sending Austin off the track. Struggling to find a place to re-enter the track. Austin would lose several positions and finish 7th in the moto and 5th overall on the day. Joey would struggle to a 16th place finish and 13th overall on the day.

 

The teams will head to Indiana for the last round of the year next weekend.

TransCan Amateur Grand National Championships

*Use arrows to scroll entire gallery*

 

The Walton TransCan Grand National Championship is Canada’s premier annual “Celebration of Motocross.”  Thousands of people from across the country qualify for limited starting positions at the annual GNC and race for top National honours in their respected race classes.  Families migrate to the Huron County in Ontario for a week long, three-moto format race, ending with the MX Tour season finale race crowning the King of Walton.

 

With over twenty-five years of history, the Walton Raceway has been a battleground for Canada’s future and current Champions and with its return to the National schedule in 2018, Fox Racing was proud to partner with the re-growth of Canada’s Amateur Grand National Championship.  The Fox Racing Instinct Bronze Boot was presented to a rider with the highest combined points from the Junior-Intermediate classes throughout TransCan Week.  Congratulations Jeremy McKie from Boloeil, Quebec on being the 2018 recipient.

 

Among the hundreds racing from across the country, the Fox Brigade had several racers competing for top honours in their classes.  Unfortunately, down a stand-out team rider with Jacob Piccolo due to an Injury, Jake Tricco from Ontario and Ryder McNabb from Manitoba were lining up to represent the Fox Brigade at the front of their moto’s. Track conditions started out prime and looked poised to be a great week of racing, but after the second moto’s were completed, rain set-in making the closing moto’s a wild card but Champions were still crowned! Below are the Fox Brigade results.

 

Ryder McNabb – 12 years old. Minedosa, Manitoba:

The friendly farm boy attitude makes you know Ryder McNabb is having fun every time he’s on the bike.  Having spent his entire season training in Texas with the Masterpool Family, the McNabbs were coming into the TransCan fresh off racing the 2018 Loretta Lynn’s Amateur GNC where Ryder showed flashes of potential among the worlds best.  Looking to make a statement within Canada, Ryder put in great moto’s, riding consistent and mature beyond his age.

2018 MX Tour – Round 8

*Use arrows to scroll entire gallery*

 

As the MX Tour winds down to its final races of the season, Round 8 made its stop in the “la belle” province of Quebec.  The Deschambault Motocross facility is located 50km Southwest of the historic Quebec City.  A rough sand track with a clay base, mixed with the humidity of the East coast, the Deschambault track quickly becomes demanding on the riders.  The Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing team was holding the MX1 series leading red plate and hoped to extend that points lead heading into the final round of the season.  Debuting the Fox MX19 Honda Colab 180 racewear, the team had nothing but red on their mind.  The forecast for the day was cool and damp in the morning but clouds quickly evaporated and the blazing sun came out with heavy humidity.

 

Dylan Wright #12 – MX2:

No stranger to the Deschambault track, MX2 rider Dylan Wright has claimed numerous regional Amateur titles here early in his career.  Expecting nothing less than a victory, Dylan qualified for the day in 2nd position.  In Moto #1, Wright took advantage of his good start and made quick work in the early laps moving himself into the lead position by lap five.  Putting his head down, Dylan rode solid laps all the way to the checkers taking the moto win.  In Moto #2, Wright went down with rider on the opening lap which left him in 28th position.  Passing eighteen riders in three laps, Wright was on a mission to salvage a podium finish.  Advancing into the top five at the halfway point of the race, that was the best Dylan could do but it was enough to secure him 3rd overall on the day.

“Being out of the points chase, getting on the podium each weekend is the goal until we finish out the MX Tour, but I really want one more overall victory to end this season on a positive.” Dylan Wright. 3rd Overall

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – MX1

With the Championship pressure rising and the series begins closing, MX1 rider and 4-time champion, Colton Facciotti is no stranger to the task at hand.  Qualifying the day in pole position, Facciotti was looking comfortable on track and was the man to beat.  In Moto # 1, Facciotti rode patiently in the top-five lead pack, waiting to strike, but as he made his move into the third position, he slid out on an uphill section and remounted in seventh place while the lead pack took off.  Only able to take back one position before the finish, Colton finished the moto in 6th place.  In Moto #2, a frustrated Facciotti took the lead on the opening lap and never looked back claiming the moto win and salvaged valuable Championship points to earn his fifth podium finish of the season.  Losing only 4 points in his Championship lead, Facciotti remains in the drivers seat with a 22 point lead and still holds the red plate heading into the final race of the season.

“At this point in the series, the small mistakes are costly and I just need to stay focused and get the job done.” - Colton Facciotti  - 2nd Overall/MX1 series leader

2018 MX Tour – Round 7

*Use arrows to scroll entire gallery*

 

The MX Tour made it’s annual stop in the coastal Atlantic region for Round 7 of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown series.  The Riverglade MX Park, otherwise known as “The Glade” is located in Moncton New Brunswick, directly parallel the busiest road in Canada, The Transcanada Highway.  Nearing the end of the series, the race action at The Glade is always critical to the outcome of the Championships.  Round 7 was special for the Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing team as they made the new MX19 Fox Racewear debut for fans to get an early look at the new line.

 

Dylan Wright #12 – MX2:

Although he is out of Championship contention, MX2 rider Dylan Wright continues to race for wins and has two overall victories to his name this year. Looking to build off those, Dylan’s never give up riding style has been exciting to watch and leaves you on the edge of your seat every moto.  In Moto 1, Dylan had a late jump off the start which left him starting the race in 10th position.  Putting his head down and working his way through the pack, Wright secured the 5th place position in the closing laps.  In Moto 2, Dylan started the race with the lead pack of riders in 4th place.  Staying on pace, Dylan remained patient before making his move into the 3rd place position, but then disaster struck in the following corner when a lapper cut into his line and caused him to crash dropping him back down to 4th place where he finished the race and closed his day with a 5th overall.

“it was a frustrating weekend.  A bad start in Moto 1 and a crash with a lapper in Moto 2 was just the way the day was going for me and the podium just wasn’t in the cards this round….”  – Dylan Wright. 5th Overall

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – MX1

As the MX tour winds down to the final races of the season, MX2 rider Colton Facciotti has his sights set on his fourth Canadian MX Championship.  A healthy 25 point lead coming into Round 7, Facciotti’s goal was to protect that lead with consistency.  Qualifying in 1st place, Facciotti rolled into Moto 1 with confidence.  Getting the early lead on lap one, Colton checked out and lead every lap of the race for the win.  In Moto 2, Facciotti tipped over on the opening lap and was forced to battle back to salvage points.  With one lap remaining, Colton moved into the 6th place position and was in a four-way tie for the lead.  Facciotti was now one position away from clinching himself his fourth overall win of the season, but was unable to make the pass on the last lap finishing 6th for a 4th overall on the day.  No damage was done to his points lead, and Colton walked away increasing his series lead by 1 more point.

“Moncton’s moto scores were crazy, a four way tie for the win is something I’ve never seen before.  it’s a bummer that we couldn’t capitalize but at least we didn’t lose any championship points.”  Colton Facciotti  - 4rd Overall/MX1 series leader

Upcoming Race:

The next stop of the MX Tour is “la belle province” of Quebec at Deschambault.  The track is located near Quebec City and the eastern humidity is always a factor.  A full sand based track with natural terrain gets rough, whooped out and grueling on the riders.

 

Upcoming Racewear:

At Round 8 in Deschambault, QC the Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing team will be showcasing the Honda collab racewear with MVRS helmet and Instinct boot.

2018 MX Tour – Round 6

*Use arrows to scroll entire gallery*

 

The hometown race for the team at Gopher Dunes is always a special one.  The fans come rain or shine and fill the facility to cheer on the local Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing team which is based out of the facility.  The race team treats the fans to a special edition race bike each season and this year’s bike didn’t disappoint, a 1992 Pro Circuit/Peak Honda replica. 

 

Dylan Wright #12 – MX2:

With his training program now based out of the Gopher Dunes facility this season, Dylan Wright had big expectations to race for his third victory of the season.  But the all new layout at The Dunes wasn’t forgiving and made struggles for everyone.  In Moto 1, Dylan had a bad jump with his start and went down in the pack on lap one.  Coming around lap one in 9th place, Dylan worked his way into 3rd place by the finish.  In Moto 2, Dylan got an even worse start and went down again, starting lap one in 32nd place he had to battle back to 6th place, giving him 4th overall on the day.

“It’s not how I wanted my home weekend at The Dunes to go, but that’s why this track is what it is. Bad starts put you in bad spots out there.”Dylan Wright. 4th Overall

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – MX1

With the series leading red plate in his possession, Colton Facciotti is aiming for consistency to ride out his season with podium finishes.  Now his home base as well, Facciotti makes the rough track of Gopher Dunes look buttery smooth at times.  In Moto 1, Colton led the opening laps before settling back into the 3rd place position for the remaining sixteen laps.  In Moto 2, Facciotti again started up front and battled in the lead pack until lap six, where he would settle back into the 3rd place position for the remaining eleven laps.  Another consistent overall podium finish for Facciotti extending his points lead to 25 points with three races remaining.

“It’s just good to make it out of this race on the podium, I love this place but it’s hard work sometimes.”Colton Facciotti. MX1 3rd Overall/MX1 series leader

Red Bull Rocks and Logs

*Use the arrows to scroll entire gallery*

Only a few kilometres from the central business district of Calgary, Alberta, the Red Bull Rocks and Logs course at the Wild Rose Motocross facility once again reshaped itself for another epic urban enduro battle.  Endurocross style features, outdoor elements and downtown city scape views make this a unique and exciting race.

Pro Mens:

Up and coming Hard Enduro racer, Manuel Lettenbichler from Germany took the flight from Munich to Calgary to test his endurocross skills against some other international competition.  Fresh off a recent podium at the infamous Erzberg Rodeo, Manuel adapted to the track quickly.  In a three-main event format, riders had the opportunity to use consistency to their advantage.  Lettenbichler’s sprint speed and consistency allowed him to sweep all three Main Events for his first Rocks and Logs title.

“it was such a pleasure to come here to Canada and race this awesome event. It was a lot of fun vibes but the racing was still challenging physically.” – Manuel Lettenbichler. 2018 Red Bull Rocks and Logs winner.

Pro Womens:

In the Pro Womens category, past winner and Calgary local, Lexi Pechout lined up for her first major race of the season.  A one-moto format would leave the women no room for errors if wanting the victory.  Lexi rode a solid Main Event, battling for second place but couldn’t make the pass happen and had to settle for a 3rd place finish.
