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.

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.

Canadian Motocross Nationals - Round 4
With the Western rounds of the Rockstar Energy Canadian Motocross Nationals wrapping up in Saskatchewan, the riders and teams get their first break of the season before resuming racing in the East.

Hard packed soil and long deep ruts make line choice crucial a Moto Valley to keep momentum.

MX2 - Dylan Wright: (3-4) 3rd Overall

Dylan has struggled in the early rounds of the West and has been patiently waiting for his rebound weekend to shift the momentum in a positive direction. Starting the day off with a 3rd place qualifying time, Wright looked to be back on track. In moto 1, Dylan came around the first corner in 7th position and worked his way into 3rd place on lap 9 where he finished out the race giving him a first moto podium of the season. In Moto 2, a 9th place start forced Wright to dig deep to stay in contention for an Overall podium finish. By lap ten, Wright was in 4th place and rode it out to secure himself and the team their first MX2 podium finish of the season.

"it's obviousy a big monkey off my back especially heading into the break but we're still taking it one race at a time to collect points back." - Dylan Wright


MX1 - Colton Facciotti: (5-8) 8th Overall

50TH ANNUAL MAMMOTH MOTOCROSS

2017 Mammoth Motocross

June 16-25th, 2017

Mammoth Lakes, California

 

Mammoth Motocross kicked off this past week for the 50th time in history, continuing the tradition and still the longest running motocross event in the United States.  Sitting at roughly 8,000 feet of elevation, and Mammoth being at the base of their premier ski resort, an overactive winter and high snow levels left parts of the track under water just weeks before the event.  After running miles pipe and pumping literally millions of gallons of water, the crew pulled it off and the event went off without a hitch.

Garrett Marchbanks was on fire this week, claiming all 3 of his classes in 250 B, SchoolBoy 2, and 250 B/C Open. Ciaran Naran in that class group as well, had consistent week with all 3 heat races on the podium.  Enzo Lopes was running fast in the A class, taking 2nd place in both the 250 Pro and Open Pro.  Tristan Miller also came out to Mammoth with his beast of a 500cc machine to dominate the FMF 2-Stroke race.  North Carolina’s Jordan Jarvis made the drive all the way to California, not only to win the Women’s 12+ championship, but also she placed in the top 10 in the SchoolBoy 1 and 125cc b/c boys classes!  The SuperMini classes were heated to say the least, Stilez Robertson collected some big bear trophies winning final motos in SuperMini 1 & 2 during the 2 mini race days!  NorCal’s Jeremy Ryan also had a good week in SuperMini classes consistently on the podium, while Levi Kitchen from the NorthWest was battling with some sickness issues still managed to stay within the top 5 in SuperMini 1.65cc pilot, Enzo Temmerman, won day 2 of the 65cc (7-9), along with Preston Boespflug in the older 65cc (10-11) classes having a successful week on the podium.

Congratulations to all who came out to compete at this historic 50th annual event!   Below is a list of top 3 performances by the Fox team, and link to full race results.
