KEN ROCZEN TAKES THE 450 POINTS LEAD

On the heels of his 450 Supercross victory last week in St. Louis, Ken Roczen put together another strong performance. The German took 2nd, giving him enough points to take the points lead, and the famed "red plate." In addition to a heated 450 Main Event, there was plenty of action at the Big A including an intense 250 Main Event battle, Stacyc youth racing, and Chad Reed's final go-round at his beloved Angel Stadium.

 

A2 Supercross Qualifying

Adam Cianciarulo continued his streak of earning the top qualifying spot in the 450 Class during Saturday's qualifying sessions. Ken Roczen was just behind him in 3rd.

In the 250 Class, Pro Circuit Kawasaki's Austin Forkner grabbed the second fastest time while Geico Honda's Jett Lawrence was an impressive 3rd.

Angel Stadium is just down the road from Fox Headquarter, making Anaheim races a great opportunity for us to celebrate racing together. The Fox family got together for good old fashioned "Chill & Grill," and the whole crew was fired up to head into the stadium as the sun set in the distance.

Chad Reed’s #OneLastRide

Chad Reed's #OneLastRide farewell tour continued at A2, but this stop was extra special for the Australian veteran. Reed has been very vocal about his love for Anaheim races. He's clocked eight total wins at the Big A and will walk away from his racing career having participated in 47 of 75 races held there thus far. The local fans gave him a farewell cheer worthy of a legend. Cheers Reedy!

Stacyc Holeshot Challenge

The next generation of Supercross stars got a chance to shine on the floor of Angel Stadium as a Stacyc holeshot challenge was held for a group of lucky youngsters. Participants from the Fox family included Jameson Hart, Jagger Craig, and Parks Perebijnos. It was great to see the kids having some fun and experiencing riding under the stadium lights.

 

Adam Cianciarulo and Ken Roczen battle in A2 heat races

A2 Supercross Heat Races

Pro Circuit's Austin Forkner was able to take the win in 250 Heat #1, and Geico Honda's Christian Craig earned the Heat #2 victory. Jett Lawrence was just behind Craig in second, and there was a sense of intensity in the 250 Class that was bubbling up for what would become a wild main event later in the evening.

Supercross's favorite training partners, Ken Roczen and Adam Cianciarulo battled it out in 450 Heat #2 and diced back and forth before Roczen eventually took the win. The boys were smiling and laughing as usual as they pulled off the track in 1st and 2nd.

 

Jett Lawrence at the starting gate at A2

A2 Supercross Main Event

The 250 Main Event was arguably the most exciting race of the night. It began lap two as Geico Honda's Jett Lawrence passing his teammate Christian Craig for the lead. The 16-year-old Lawrence led the field as drama ensued behind him. First, it was Austin Forkner going down in a heap while running 3rd, then Christian Craig got taken out during a controversial move by Dylan Ferrandis. Lawrence looked to be on his way to his first main event win but a tricky whoop section took him down on the final lap. Forkner and Craig walked away unscathed, but Lawrence suffered a broken collarbone that will eliminate him from action for at least a couple weeks. It was a tough night for our guys in the 250 Class. Get well soon Jettson!

The 450 Main Event got off to a great start with Ken Roczen grabbing the holeshot and the early lead. Adam Cianciarulo didn't fare as well. He started just outside the top 10 and had to cut through the pack to get back into the mix. Roczen conceded the lead on lap 7, settled into second, and eventually finished second. This podium gave him enough points to pass the series points leader, Justin Barcia, and take control of the coveted red plate. AC finished in 6th and was notably frustrated with himself. Overall, it was a positive night, and Roczen heads into Round 4 next week in Glendale, Arizona.

Roczen Wins St. Louis 450SX

It was an emotional night for Ken Roczen in St. Louis as he finally achieved what he's been working so hard for since his injuries in early 2017 - a 450 Supercross main event win. It had been 1,092 days since Roczen's last victory, a time which included two nearly career-ending injuries and arguably some of the darkest days in his life. Following this arm injury in January of 2017, Roczen's doctors originally told him that he may not be able to hold a fork again, much less race a motorcycle at the top level again. He faced, even more, trying times in 2019 with another arm injury, but never wavered in his plan to get back on top - and he's finally done it!

St. Louis Supercross Qualifying

Things got off to a smooth start Saturday morning with Missouri native Pro Circuit Kawasaki's Austin Forkner clocking the 3rd fastest time in the 250 Division. He was closely followed by GEICO Honda's Christian Craig & Jett Lawrence in 4th & 5th place, respectively. Unfortunately, Forkner's Pro Circuit Kawasaki stablemate Cameron McAdoo took a hard crash in qualifying that left him with a small puncture in his lung and forcing him to sit out the night.

In 450 qualifying, it was the rookie Adam Cianciarulo that topped the boards yet again on his factory Kawasaki ride. After a 2nd place finish in his 450 debut in Anaheim, AC looked determined to keep himself at the front of the pack. Ken Roczen made the trip out to St. Louis a day early and rode press day on Friday - and the German was feeling the flow while clocking the 4th fastest overall time.

When it came time for opening ceremonies in St. Louis - the local fans got the opportunity to bid their goodbyes to Chad Reed as an active 450 Supercross racer. The Australian legend was greeted with roaring cheers, and Chad took in the moment as he circled the Dome at America's Center one last time.

 

St. Louis Supercross Heat Races

In the 250 Heat races, it was all FOX & SHIFT as GEICO Honda's Christian Craig took the win in 250 Heat #1, and local boy Austin Forkner brought home the win in 250 Heat #2. It was shaping up for an epic battle in the 250 Class!

In 450 Heat #1, it was the Ken Roczen show. He quickly moved past Vince Friese after the opening lap and gapped the field by over 5 seconds to take a commanding win in the 8-lap qualifier. Adam Cianciarulo was up next in 450 Heat #2 and wanted to match the performance of his training partner Roczen. AC had to wait until the halfway point before he could move past race leader Zach Osborne, but nonetheless, he was able to bring home the win as well.

 

St. Louis Supercross Main Event

In the 250 Main Event, Austin Forkner got off to a great start and grabbed an early lead in front of his home state crowd. In the opening laps, he was closely contested by GEICO Honda prodigy Jett Lawrence, although the young Australian would never get quite close enough to make a move. Forkner led every lap to bring home the wire to wire victory. It has been a bit of tough road for Forkner after injuring his ACL last year while leading the 250 SX East Championship, but the 21-year-old is back to his winning ways!

In the 450 Main Event showdown, Ken Roczen stalked race leader Zach Osborne from the opening lap before quickly moving past him and into 1st. Roczen was clearly on a mission and started to put in extremely consistent lap times and slowly increased his lead lap by lap. As Roczen built his lead, Adam Cianciarulo bounced around in the top-5 and would eventually end up finishing in 7th after a small crash in the closing laps. Roczen, however, was untouchable and ran away with the win in a storybook finish.

HAMILTON SUPERCROSS FINALE

A Final Victory lap for Facciotti

The final round of the Rockstar Energy Supercross Tour was hosted in Hamilton, Ontario and marked the end of the 2019 Triple Crown Tour.  As the curtain closed on the season, it was also the official retirement for the six-time Canadian National Champion, Colton Facciotti.  After a dominant career, Facciotti was in attendance to do his final victory lap to say farewell to his fans.  Although Colton will be done racing professionally, he will remain a full-time GDR Honda team member and help assist off the track with the team as they prepare their next generation of champions.

Coming into Round 3 of the SX Tour, Dylan Wright was in a seven-point deficit for the SX championship but had already clinched his 250cc Triple Crown title.  Always in it to win it, Wright was the top qualifier in Hamilton and looked to be back on track after an uncharacteristically difficult weekend prior in Quebec City where he finished 9th.

 

Asserting himself with the Heat race win, Wright was riding comfortable and having fun on the tight technical Hamilton track.  Getting a second place start in the Main Event, Wright patiently waited for his opportunity to execute the pass for the lead and then began to check out from the other riders and comfortably increased his lead each lap until the checkers dropped.  This earned Wright his eighth Victory of this season.

 

The Honda Canada GDR Fox Racing team ended their outstanding season on the top step of the podium and have set the bar high for their upcoming 2020 season.  Stay tuned for some exciting announcements regarding the upcoming season.

Red Bull Outliers Invades Downtown Calgary!

Canada’s first urban enduro race hosted in Downtown Eau Claire Market.

 

The downtown city center of Calgary, Alberta hosted an epic two-wheel motorsports race in the heart of the city.   On Saturday 28th, Riders lined up in the Eau Claire market streets with dirt bikes and competed in the inaugural Red Bull Outliers race.  The 900 meter Outliers course consisted of 100 truck tires, 100 raw logs, 42 rig mats, 2 garbage dumpsters, 16 concrete barricades and 2 tons of stone forming Canada’s first-ever urban enduro race course.

 

What started out as an already challenging course, received the addition of an early season snowfall the morning of the race, freezing the obstacles making it even more challenging for riders to navigate.  After some minor course modifications, the races resumed with less spills and all the same thrills.

 

Riders from regions across Canada and the United States participated in five classes; Amateur, Vet, Expert, Pro and Team.  Over 100 participants attempted to successfully navigate the rugged Outliers obstacles with as few crashes as possible. Spectators lined the fences and were delivered the ultimate downtown enduro race.

 

Fox Racing Canada had six support riders outfitted and representing in the MX20 Legion gear while they braved all the elements of the Outliers race, on and off the ground.

 

Shout out to: Burg Giliomee; Expert, Lexi Pechout; Expert, Chris Pomeroy; Vet, Nick Collins; Pro, Charlie Johnston; Pro, Jared Stock; Pro.

Victory at the Montreal Supercross!

Victory at the Montreal Supercross!

Dylan Wright earns his first 250cc Montreal Supercross Victory!

 

 

The marquee Montreal Supercross returned to the Olympic Stadium for the 2019 showing.  In conjunction with the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Championship, the MTL SX is also the opening round of the SX Tour portion of the Triple Crown Series.  Hot off his MX Tour Championship in August, and his previous AX Tour Championship in April, Dylan Wright is the man on top right now. We caught up with Dylan after he earned his first 250cc Montreal Supercross victory.

 

 

Race day strategy / consistency:

“Tonight was just about riding mellow, staying safe, and staying on the bike…somewhat (laughs), and not crashing too hard.   I mean, that’s just kind of what I’ve been doing all year and it’s helped me win.  I really would have liked to win a moto tonight because I felt like that second moto was mine but we’re still stoked to get the Overall tonight.”

 

 

Starts / Crash in Moto 1 start:

“I definitely wasn’t thinking that I had a chance (for the overall) when I was laying down in the first turn.  The first turn was tricky, it was hard packed and guys were going for it, so it was tough and a lot of us fell there tonight.  I knew I just had to get through there, so for the second moto I lined up further outside to play it safer and I still just made it through…”

 

 

Moto 2 race battle / Track Conditions / Contention for the Overall Victory:

“I felt good, I tried to make something happen on Luke (Renzland) then I came out of a turn and saw a down rider and I got cross rutted off the lip and thought ‘oh no, this ain’t going good’ and it kind of just messed me up mentally from then on so I knew it wasn’t smart to keep pushing. The track was gnarly after the quads and stuff so it wasn’t ideal to over-ride it and I was just thinking about getting out of here healthy and moving on to the next round - I honestly wasn’t even thinking that I had the overall!”

 

 

250cc Results;

1st – Dylan Wright (5-2)

2nd – Luke Renzland (9-1)

3rd – Mathias Jorgenson (6-4)

ADAM CIANCIARULO CROWNED 2019 250 CHAMPION

A storied quest for championship glory was finally completed for Adam Cianciarulo last weekend as the 22-year old Floridian clinched the 2019 AMA 250 Motocross Championship in Indiana. The first title of Cianciarulo's career comes at an opportune moment, capping off his 250 career with the #1 held high before he transitions to the 450 Class in 2020. AC racked up 6 overall wins along the way to the championship and was able to clinch the title after Moto #1 in Indiana.

Touted as one of the most promising stars from a young age (with 11 major amateur titles), Adam joined Mitch Payton's Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki and began his pro career in the summer of 2013. After many up and down seasons, filled with injuries and setbacks, Cianciarulo was a new man in 2019 and finished 2nd in the West Region AMA Supercross series before dominating the Pro Motocross series this summer. On top of Cianciarulo's big weekend, HRC's Ken Roczen also had a very positive end to the 2019 summer campaign and clinched 2nd in the 450 Championship with 2-3 Moto scores on his way to second overall.

 

Ironman 250 Moto Recap

Adam Cianciarulo Highlights

Cianciarulo had the opportunity to wrap the title in the 250 Moto #1 and avoid a do or die situation in the final moto of the season. All he had to do was avoid conceding more than 4 points on Dylan Ferrandis who sat second in the series standings. Nerves were at an all-time high when the gate dropped, and Ferrandis jumped out to an early lead with his teammate Justin Cooper second and Cianciarulo in 3rd. Ferrandis & Cooper exchanged positions a few times while AC lurked behind, making sure to ride consistent and smooth laps regardless of the running order. Ferrandis eventually gained command of the lead and at a certain point in the moto; AC would have to wait to be champion unless he could pass Cooper. AC finally made the move with just 5 laps remaining in the race, finishing up in second to secure his first career professional title. He was overcome with emotions as the team embraced him after the finish and was on top of the world as he donned the #1 for the first time!

As the 250 riders slotted into the gate for the final moto of the year, Adam Cianciarulo couldn't wipe the grin off his face after, being crowned champion just over an hour prior. Not wanting to leave anything on the table, AC got another strong start and took the green flag running in 3rd. He stayed there for a majority of the moto, but eventually finished 4th and went 2-4 for 3rd Overall on the day. The only number that mattered to him was the #1 as he celebrated with his team well into the night.

"The road to this championship has been a journey. As a kid, I always knew I would be in this position, but then it seemed like that was taken from me (with injuries). In the end, I would rather wait to Year 6 and get it this way, knowing how much I’ve learned and grown as a person. It’s just amazing what you can do if you put your mind to it. I couldn’t do this without my incredible support system behind me. There are so many people that have made this happen. I’m just so proud of my team.” - Adam Cianciarulo

 

Ironman 450 Moto Recap

Ken Roczen Highlights

Ken Roczen got off to a great start in 450 Moto #1 and took control of the lead before taking the green flag on the opening lap. The German put in a strong ride, leading a majority of the moto with Marvin Musquin and Eli Tomac in tow during a full-on nail biter. The three leaders gapped the field by a massive gap, and Roczen ended up 2nd after a small mistake with just 4 laps to go allowed Musquin to pass him.

The final race of the season was another positive outing for Ken Roczen as the German looked to earn the runner-up spot in the already decided 450 MX Championship. After another strong start, Roczen briefly led again before slotting into 3rd place by the time the moto came to an end. 2-3 scores were good for 2nd Overall on the day and allowed Kenny to finish up 2nd for the series. After a year filled with ups and downs including some health issues, Roczen is happy to finish up the season in one piece and looks forward to a productive off-season aimed at chasing both 450 Titles next year.

TIM GAJSER - 2019 MXGP World Champion

It was a massive weekend in Italy for HRC's Tim Gajser as the 22-year old Slovenian clinched the 2019 MXGP World Championship at Round 15 of the series. All eyes were on Gajser heading into the weekend, as he edged closer to a 3rd career World Championship after winning his ninth overall victory of the season at the previous race in Lommel. After winning the title as a rookie in the class back in 2016, Gajser faced two rough seasons filled with injuries and bad luck. In 2019 he returned with a vengeance, racking up victory after victory while taking his riding to a whole new level.

Gajser would not be given an easy task on the weekend from the track, as the race surface built inside the classic Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari speedway was extremely hard and bumpy. Regardless, he got things off to a good start on Saturday, with the fastest time in both Free & Qualifying Practice. The sun was beating down in Imola by the time the riders lined up for the Qualifying Race, and Gajser got off to a solid start through the right handed first corner. He took the green flag in 2nd position behind Romain Febvre and stalked the Frenchman for the opening laps waiting to make his move. After eating roost over the first half of the moto, Gajser finally made the pass for the lead just before the finish line on Lap 8. He settled into the lead after that and took a convincing win for first pick on the gate for Sunday's motos.

Tim headed to the line on Sunday knowing he could wrap the title after Moto 1 with only an 8th place finish if Jeremy Seewer took the win. After not getting the cleanest start, he fought his way through the pack on the opening lap and held 4th place at the green flag with Seewer just behind him in 5th. In classic Gajser fashion, he dropped the hammer and charged to the front with his focus fully on taking the moto win. He made quick work of Paul Jonass and Gautier Paulin and had moved into 2nd only 2 laps later. Race leader Glenn Coldenhoff was in his sights and he continued to charge before making a big mistake and going down on the following lap. The crash knocked him back to 8th but he got going again with full focus on the title. In a much more controlled manner he moved up as far as 5th, which was plenty enough to take the championship with Seewer in second.

It was a hero's welcome for Gajser as he came off the track, with the entire HRC crew making their way onto the circuit to greet him. Champagne sprayed and red smoke filled the air as Tim and his team celebrated the ultimate achievement in the MXGP world. Gajser was overcome with emotion as he soaked in the moment and relished in the third World Championship of his young career.

With all the pressure off after clinching the championship, there was still work to be done and Tim headed to the line for MXGP Moto 2. Another mediocre start had him sitting 4th at the green flag, and he let the race come to him this time as he cruised to 2nd place. He went 5-2 for 3rd Overall on the day, but the only moment he'll remember from the day is raising the #1 plate on the podium.

Gajser's second career premier class title comes with three rounds of the championship remaining. His domination during the middle part of the season that included a streak of 7 overall victories put him in the perfect position to wrap the title up early. The series rolls on next week at Uddevalla in Sweden. #BravoTim

Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series MX Tour Round 8

With over 40 years of motocross racing history, the Walton Raceway is the most iconic venue of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series.  The rich history of crowning champions at the Walton has made it the annual celebration of Canadian Motocross.


Located in the heart of the Huron County, the Walton Raceway sprawls throughout the property’s acreage and utilizes the natural elevation and valleys.  The soil is thick, tacky clay which molds and forms copious amounts of racing lines to choose from.  The Walton Raceway is known to favour hard park riders with superior rut skills.

 

Dylan Wright – 250cc Champion

Having won numerous Amateur National Championships at the Walton Raceway and scoring some of his most dominant Pro results at the facility, Dylan Wright knows the track inside and out.  With a comfortable point lead on his 250cc Championship, Wright was rolling into Round 8 of the MX tour looking to clinch his first ever Professional Motocross Championship.

 

With Championship strategy in mind, Wright was forced to be more calculated and patient during his races.  In Moto 1, Wright started in the top 5 and patiently waited for the lead riders to shuffle themselves into race order before making his moves.  On lap five, Wright took control of the lead and never looked back while on his way to the win and clinched the Championship.  While the race day was only half completed, Dylan held back on any celebrations until all the work was done for the day. 

 

In Moto 2, Wright mimicked his previous moto performance and sat patiently in the top five position before making his move to the lead position and then walking away with another dominant clean sweep!

 

Colton Facciotti – 450cc Champion

Nearing the final gate drops of his career, Colton Facciotti walked into the Walton Raceway looking as calm and comfortable as ever.  Holding a less than sizeable point lead on the 450cc Championship, Facciotti and team weren’t able to be as comfortable as hoping for going into his final races.

 

While embracing his final laps of his Pro career, Facciotti was able to stop and salute the fans on his hot lap before lining up and getting to work on earning his 6th Championship.  In Moto 1, Faccoitti started in the top three, then rode steady and patient moving himself into the second place position where he would comfortably finish out the race.

 

In Moto 2, Facciotti got the jump on the start and rounded the first corner in second place.  By lap three, Facciotti was in the lead and holding a tight grip on his title.  On the closing laps of the race, Facciotti rode conservative and to avoid any unnecessary altercations, Colton slide back to the second place position where he would finish out the moto and bowed out of his career winning his 6th Canadian National Championship!

After an absolutely impressive 2019 MX tour season, earning double Championships, The Honda Canada GDR Fox Racing team now sets is sights on the SX Tour portion of the Triple Crown Series.  The opening race is September 14th at the Montreal Olympic Stadium.  While Facciotti will sit out the remainder of the season, 250cc rider Dylan Wright is hunting down his third title of the season and has his eyes on the Triple Crown prize.
