Terrafirma 1 - Digitally Remastered

The Terrafirma series blasted onto the scene in 1994 - setting the bar for motocross videos in the ’90s. Starring current and future icons like Doug Henry, Ezra Lusk, Ricky Carmichael, James Stewart, and Travis Pastrana, it gave fans a glimpse inside the moto world for the first time. The film's unique mix of riding and behind the scenes footage became the ultimate formula for this 7 chapter series. Featuring epic locations, a roster of elite athletes, and a soundtrack to match the footage, there's no wonder why the Terrafirma series was so groundbreaking in our sport.

 

“In 1994, I went to Loretta Lynn’s to capture racing footage for our first video project - Terrafirma. One night after the races, we got three of our young racers together for a group interview. It was unscripted and spontaneous. When we edited Terrafirma, we thought it would be cool to sprinkle the footage throughout the video - they were so cool and funny. Pretty crazy to think about what these three little kids went on to accomplish in the sport: Ricky Carmichael, James Stewart, and Travis Pastrana.” – Pete Fox

ARLINGTON SX RACE RECAP

*Use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

Wow, it’s good to be a race fan. The 7th round of the 2019 Supercross series, in Arlington, Texas, was billed as an exciting one and boy did it deliver. Austin Forkner took his second consecutive win in dominant fashion, furthering his points lead. In the 450 class, we witness the closest finish in Supercross history – just 0.02 seconds separating the leaders.

 

250 CLASS

Austin Forkner #24

Austin was perfect all night. He was first in his heat race, qualified first, and won the main. The Pro Circuit rider had another stellar start – rounding turn one in second place. He would quickly make the pass for 1st, lead every lap and took his second consecutive win of the season.

 

“Another solid night! Thanks team!”
 

Martin Davalos #73

Davalos had a solid night - a great rebound from last week. In the main, he started in 8th and worked his way through the field to finish 5th. This was a huge improvement from his 16th place in Minneapolis and is a promising indicator for the rest of the season. He now moves up to the top ten in the overall standings.

 

“I’m happy I came out of Dallas first turn safe this year and healthy. I’m happy to be racing again and can’t wait for Detroit!”
 

Chase Sexton #23

Chase Sexton was tormented with mistakes all night but still achieved a great result - a testament to his race-winning speed. Chase had an excellent start in the main, riding with the leaders after the first turn. He would attack the field quickly, passing three riders in the first rhythm section to secure 2nd. In the early laps, he was pressuring the leader, Austin Forkner, but would stall the bike and lose multiple positions. He quickly rebounded but lost ground again after a fall. The 3rd place finish is his first podium of the season and positions him 4th in the standings.

 

“Happy and thankful to be back on the box this weekend, but with that being said I’m frustrated with the mistakes I made when I had the chance to make a win happen”

 

450 CLASS

Ken Roczen #94

Roczen came to Texas with the red plate, and three straight podium finishes. The only thing eluding him this year was an overall win. And this looked to be his night until the very last turn. Roczen had another great start in the main and had a short battle with Musquin for 2nd place. From there, he set his sights on Tomac. He wasted no time attacking Eli and made the pass. He led the whole race which came down to the last turn. After the last set of whoops – with Roczen and Cooper riding almost bar-to-bar – Cooper would attempt the pass in the final turn before the finish line jump. Both riders lost momentum as they collided in the turn and they accelerated to the finish. Cooper would edge out Roczen by just 0.02 seconds.

 

“Nobody said it would be easy. I’m enjoying the way of figuring it out and putting the puzzle pieces all together with my team”
 

Chad Reed #22

It was a difficult night for Reed. He was sitting in 7th at the start of the 450 main but would struggle as the ride progressed and slip back to 11th.

 

“On track was a struggle all day and night just had no speed at all”

 

 

450 Class:

  • 2 – Ken Roczen (+ 00.028)
  • 7 – Chad Reed (+ 45.767)

250 Class:

  • 1 – Austin Forkner (20 laps)
  • 3 – Chase Sexton (+ 17.934)
  • 5 – Martin Davalos (+33.135)

Oakland SX Race Recap

*Use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

For the 4th round of the 2019 Supercross Series, we headed to the California Bay for the Oakland Supercross. When the dust settled, we had a new points leader.

 

450 CLASS
Ken Roczen #94

After a clean start, Ken rolled to a 2nd place finish in Heat Race Two. In the main, he didn’t have the best start. From mid-pack, he worked his way towards the front and soon found himself in 2nd. However, he would fade in the closing laps and finish 4th. The last couple passes would cost him the point lead, and he will head to San Diego two points behind the new leader, Cooper Webb.

Chad Reed #22

A great start landed Chad in the lead group of Heat Race Two. He road in control and finish 4th to qualify for the main. Sadly, Chad didn’t get the same start in the main. Working from deep in the pack, he was fast enough to move up to the 9th position.

 

250 CLASS
Adam Cianciarulo #92

After a poor start, Adam found himself deep in the pack in Heat Race Two, but he worked back to finish in 3rd. For the main, Adam didn’t grab the holeshot but managed to pass two riders in the first rhythm (McAdoo & Nichols) to take the lead. After that impressive pass, he controlled most of the race and kept Nichols at bay just enough to keep a true pass attempt from happening. Adam had his share of close calls due to the pressure from Nichols but maintained his compose and took his second win of the season.

Garrett Marchbanks #61

Garrett was looking forward to Oakland after a tough night at A2. He finished 7th in Heat Race Two and had a solid ride in the main to finish 8th.

Cameron McAdoo #44

After a good start, Cameron took the lead and led Heat Race One for 3 laps. However, he would settle for 2nd after a decisive pass from Decotis with only two laps left. In the main, Cameron was 1st at turn-two but was rapidly passed by AC. He had a strong ride and finish 6th.

Rj Hampshire #31

Rj emerged from the first turn in the lead and set the pace through the opening laps. A mistake would see him finish 4th in Heat Race Two. In the main, Rj had a decent start - 4th after the first lap. However, he had a tough final and finished 13th.

 

450 Class:

  • 4 – Ken Roczen (+ 20.260)
  • 9 – Chad Reed (+ 48.592)

250 Class:

  • 1 – Adam Cianciarulo (17 laps)
  • 6 – Cameron McAdoo (+ 27.474)
  • 8 – Garett Marchbanks (+ 39.955)
  • 13 – Rj Hampshire (16 laps + 01.760)

A2 Race Recap

*Use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

This past weekend, the 2019 Supercross series made its way back to Anaheim stadium for the 3rd round of the season. A2 would be the first round of the triple crown racing format. This format switches the night schedule to 3 main events with all qualifying taking place during the day.

 

450 CLASS

In the 450 class, Ken Roczen came into the night with the points lead in the series. Ken got out to a great start in the first main and lead the entire race - eventually getting passed on the last lap to take 2nd. Ken started mid-pack in the second main and had to work towards the front. After securing 3rd, a mistake in the whoops would see Ken go down and lose positions. However, he would recover and work his way back to 5th. Ken got out to another mid-pack start in the third main and pushed his way to 4th. The 3 moto finishes gave Ken 4th overall and would see him maintain his points lead as the series heads to Oakland.

Chad Reed rolled into A2 in custom racewear that paid homage to Jeremy McGrath - the all-time king of supercross and his hero in the sport. Chad had a tough start in the 1st main and would finish in 10th. He had a bike issue after the 1st race that would not allow him to line up for the 2nd main. However, in the 3rd main, he got a good start and finished 5th - his best finish of the year. His overall finish on the night would be 14th.

 

250 CLASS

In the 250 class, Adam Cianciarulo grabbed the holeshot in the 1st main and looked to be on his way to a win. A small mistake saw him go down and fall back in the pack. He would rebound and finish 4th. In the 2nd main, Adam would crash mid-way through the race and eventually finish 14th. In the 3rd main, Adam put in a solid ride and came home in 2nd - taking 5th overall.

Garrett Marchbanks had a tough night in all 3 mains. He would end the night 21st and is looking forward to Oakland.

&The Team Geico Honda riders had a good night. RJ Hampshire would finish 4th on the night with Cameron McAdoo finishing 6th.

Glendale Race Recap

*Use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

Round two of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross series was a pivotal night for the Fox Racing team. Ken Roczen scored his second-consecutive podium while Adam Cianciarulo took his first win of the year.

 

250 CLASS

It was Adam's night in Arizona. He started his day finishing first in his heat race and backed it up with an impressive holeshot in the main. After the first turn, he quickly pulled away from the pack, led every lap, and took his first win of the series. With the victory in Arizona, Adam jumped 3 positions in the overall standing and sits 2nd heading into round three.

“What I’m stoked about the most is the starts; the starts are back. That feels really good. The team has been grinding, doing everything we can. We made a lot of strides in the offseason with myself, the bike, the team - everything. It translated well tonight.”

 

450 CLASS

For Ken, it was a tale of two races. He had a disappointing heat race and would later joke, “Luckily we don’t get points for heat races.” In the main, he was a completely different rider. After taking the holeshot, he would lead much of the race with Jason Anderson in pursuit. Unfortunately, Steward ended up having a huge crash in the whoops, bringing a stop to the race, and later a staggered restart.

Several riders would take advantage of the restart, including Anderson, who gain significant ground on Roczen. Anderson would eventually make an aggressive pass on Roczen – taking him down in the process. Roczen would lose several positions but would bounce back yet again to claim third place and the overall points lead. Ken will be bringing the Redplate to A2 on the 94 HRC Honda.

“I bounced back at least and came back on the podium – the third place. That was super good; I’m pretty happy to be back on the podium. My team has been working so good, it’s unbelievable and I’m super happy with everything right now. Everybody that’s in my corner, I want to give you a huge thanks and also to the people that watch and all the fans.”

A1 Race Recap

*Use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

This past weekend marked the start of the 2019 Supercross series. The stage was set in Anaheim, California to see what the New Year would bring the top supercross riders in the world.

In the 450 Class, we would see Ken Roczen and Chad Reed lining up, as well as Adam Cianciarulo and Garrett Marchbanks lining up in the 250 class.

Team Geico Honda rider’s RJ Hampshire and Cameron McAdoo would also be there in the Fox V3 helmet.

There was a chance of rain that did materialize during the second qualifying session of the day, and eventually, let up and lead into what appeared to be a dry night of racing, but it wouldn’t last long. The rain started to come down as the 450 riders lined up in their heat races.

In the 450 class, Ken Roczen got out to a great start in his heat race and would go on to win. Chad Reed would have to work his way through the LCQ to get into the main.

In the 450 Main, Ken was off to a good start and worked his way to the front of the pack. He would go on to finish 2nd and escape the rain at A1, earning valuable points towards the championship. Chad Reed got stuck in a first run pile up and would eventually work his way to 9th. A great finish considering the conditions.

In the 250 class, Adam got a good start in his heat and worked his way to the front to take the win. Garrett Marchbanks would finish 6th and transfer directly to the main in his supercross debut. RJ Hampshire won his heat race and transferred directly to the main.

In the 250 Main, AC appeared to have the holeshot but lost control going into the first turn and nearly crashed. He eventually worked his way back to the front of the pack. However, a mid-race collision with RJ Hampshire would push him back. He put on another charge and finished the race in 5th. RJ finished in 4th, Garrett Marchbanks in 6th and Cameron McAdoo in 11th.

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.
