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:

2017 Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Motocross National

2017 Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Motocross National

Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

 

This year marked the 36th annual running of the AMA Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Motocross National in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. The prestigious land of Loretta Lynn’s Ranch makes for an incredible backdrop for this week-long event. Close to 1300 racers were able to qualify to do battle for the 32 national championships awarded at the ranch.

 

The Fox Am team had an incredible week’s worth of racing claiming 5 Amateur National Championships and 12 more podium positions. Also, on site was the current and 3 time WMX Champion Kylie Fasnacht who took home the victory with a 1-1 score in the final round of the WMX’s series. 

 

The 2 highest scoring athletes on the Team this week were Garrett Marchbanks with double moto victories in the 250 B class and the Schoolboy 2 (12-17) class and, Ty Masterpool with double moto victories in the most prestigious races within mini bike racing the SuperMini 1 (12-15) SuperMini 2 (13-16) classes. Both riders outperformed all the other respected racers within the Amateur and Youth classes thus earning them The Amateur (Garrett Marchbanks) and Youth (Ty Masterpool) rider of the year awards from the AMA. Youth Rider of the year is based on his or her performances in the Youth classes at the Loretta Lynn’s National. The Amateur Rider of the year is based on the non A class rider that is predicted to have the most success as an A rider in his or her following year. 

 

Garrett struggled with starts in his first couple of motos having to work his way through the pack to win. Shortly thereafter, Garrett would figure out the fast-right hand turn of Loretta Lynn’s and started to hole-shot and walk away with the win. Garrett went on to win 5 of his 6 motos for the week in very impressive fashion. Ty Masterpool on the other hand made life easy on himself in the early motos posting 3 podiums right off the bat. Ty struggled with horrible starts later in the week and was forced to claw his way back up from practically dead last to win each title. It was full on racing drama all the way to the end. Congratulations to Ty and his privateer victory winning on a TM branded motorcycle. A brand which has never won an AMA AM Motocross National event. The last history making moment is the three Masterpool boys are the only trio of brothers to have all won Championships at the ranch. Ty made that history making moment come true this past week for the family.

 

There was a ton of other great moto action amongst the team. John Grewe was able to capture another championship at the Ranch in the 50+ class and second in the 40+ class. As the series finished up at LL with the final motos of the WMX series, Kylie Fasnacht was able to bring home another event win to top off her 2017 Championship season in the WMX class. Ethan Mann was able to hammer down his final motos of the week in winning fashion claiming two 2nd over-all finishes in the Schoolboy 1 (12-16) and 125cc (12-16) classes. Jordan Jarvis had a great week of racing coming back from a major bike issue in the first moto of the womens (12+) amateur class to go DNF-1-1 and then 3-3-3 for 2nd over-all in the girls (11-16) class. Enzo Lopes (Brazil) had an epic week early on running down and catching the Horizon award winner Justin Cooper during a couple of motos. Enzo showed everyone what he was capable of under the pressures of the AM Nationals. Lastly, the father and son duo of Don and Preston Boespflug were on site to go racing. Watching this father and son work together to discuss lines on the track and moto finishes was a very cool story to follow throughout the week. Preston would end up 3rd OA in the 65cc (7-11) class and Dad (Don) would end up coming home 4th in the 50+ class.

"I'm really happy with how we turned things around and started building momemtum and getting on top of the box where we belonged. Obviously the Championship was the goal, but we did finish out the seried one position ahead of last season so thats a small victory for sure!" - Dylan Wright


Colton Facciotti: (1-4) 2nd Place

With the MX1 Championship just out of reach coming into Round 10, Colton Facciotti lined up looking for his third victory of the season to wrap up the year.

Consistent and smooth all season long, Facciotti ended his 2017 season 3rd Overall in the 2017 MX1 Championship points.

FOX MX18 | NEW - MAGNETIC VISOR RELEASE SYSTEM (MVRS)

The 2018 Fox V3 helmet replaces screws with the all new, Magnetic Visor Release System (MVRS) designed to resist roost, but release in a crash. MVRS is a completely new approach to managing rotational forces that is strong enough to be there when you need it, smart enough to release when you don’t.

“Current helmet certification testing removes the visor before conducting any impact tests and that was an area we wanted to study. After years of analyzing collected crash data and reviewing real world crash situations, our engineers felt visor technology could evolve. MVRS is the next design approach to the evolution of the modern day motocross helmet.” said Mark Finley, Global Motocross Category Director.

"Throughout the 2017 race season, Fox athletes including Ken Roczen, Ryan Dungey, Tim Gajser, Chad Reed and Evgeny Bobryshev have all been wearing our V3 helmets equipped with MVRS. Unfortunately, Ken Roczen’s season ended in a horrific crash at Anaheim 2. As everyone witnessed during the moment of impact, his visor immediately popped off when his helmet made contact with the dirt. At that precise moment, we saw MVRS do what it was intended for in a true race environment.” said Chris Onstott, Global Sports Marketing Director.

2017 Canadian Motocross Nationals - Round 9

Canadian Motocross Nationals - Round 9

Deschambualt, QC

Quebec City, QC

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

DISCOVER THE 2018 FOX GEAR COLLECTION

Every year we have to shoot photos and video of our top riders for our upcoming season. Due to their heavy schedules, we usually end up shooting each rider by themselves. This year we assembled all of our available riders in one location at one time. Having this many bad dudes in one spot usually only happens on race day. This time: no opening ceremonies, no racing, no motos, no training; it was time to have fun riding dirt bikes. Shooting photos for an entire catalog and a full video in one day is a tremendous task; but in between all of the chaos, the crew would stop and reflect on the how special it was to have this roster in such an amazing spot. It was a surreal day for everyone involved. It’s only fitting the place is called Dreamland.

Determined to land on the podium again, Wright battled hard to a 3rd place in Moto 1.

Not the weekend Facciotti was hoping for but the 4-time champ pushed through and salvaged what he could for points. With only three races left, the Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing team closes in on both Championships. MX2 rider Dylan Wright is now 5th place and 33 points of out the lead.

Canadian Motocross Nationals - Round 6

Round 6 of the Rockstar Energy Canadian Motocross Nationals moved East for its first of two stops in Quebec. The Notre-dame-du-bon-conseil track hosted its first National event and had fans lining the fences to watch sandy track get rough and rutted.

The Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing Team has been working hard on all the details to build and keep their podium momentum in the East.

MX2 - Dylan Wright – 2nd (2-3)

Coming into Round 6 with two podium finishes in a row, Wright is back on track as a contender for win's. In Moto 1, Dylan got a top 5 start and quickly moved into 3rd place where he would ride it out until the finish but after the dust settled, a penalized rider would advance him into the 2nd place position. In Moto 2, Wright got another top 5 start and battled in the lead pack for the entire race and eventually got his way around into 3rd place on the closing laps giving him his third Overall Podium finish in a row. Dylan is now 5th Overall in the MX2 Series Points.

"Getting back into the battles up front again has been fun and the goal is to keep finishing up here on the podium and pushing for that win." - Dylan Wright

MX1 - Colton Facciotti – 1st (1-3)

Putting in his best ride of the season at Round 5 the prior weekend, Colton Facciotti made a statement that he'll be making a serious run at the Championship in the East. In Moto 1, Facciotti rocketed out of the gate winning the Royal Distributing Holeshot award and then went on to lead every lap of the race for the win. In Moto 2, Facciotti narrowly missed the Holeshot award and was shuffled back to 5th place. After making a pass for the 3rd place position at the mid-way point of the race, that was enough points to secure Facciotti the Overall Victory on the day. Colton is now 3rd in the MX1 Championship series points heading into Round 7 in Truro, NS.

"it feels good to get an Overall, the racing has been awesome and everyone's going for it out there so it's been hard work to get up here." - Colton Facciotti
