*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.

Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series - AX Tour Round 5 & 6

*use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

The closing round of the AX Tour wrapped up in Barrie, ON with an exciting double header event. The winner of the AX Tour championship would become the front runner for the 100k Triple Crown prize money heading into the Motocross season.

Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing team was coming into the final round without MX2 rider Dylan Wright who is still rehabbing a shoulder injury suffered at Round 3.  MX1 rider, Colton Facciotti has been in contention for the title all season but would need the race situations to fall in his favour in order to win the championship.

During night one, Facciotti was the top qualifier and then carried the momentum into his heat race taking the win.  Facciotti followed that up with a victory in the Clash for Cash which was crucial for him to collect extra series points.  During the Main, Facciotti crossed the start line first receiving the Royal Distributing holeshot award but only laps latter would go down with another rider who was challenging for the lead.  Facciotti remounted and went on to finish the main in 4th which took away his championship momentum.

During night two, Facciotti qualified in second place followed by a 3rd place finish in the heat race.  Finishing outside of the top 2 in his heat race would eliminate Colton from the night’s Clash for Cash race and would have to watch it from the sidelines.  In the Main Event, Facciotti held the 3rd place for the majority of the race until getting taken out by the eventual race/series winner Cole Thompson who was on the charge to the front.  Facciotti picked himself up to rode it out for a 5th place finish.

With some ups and downs throughout the AX Tour, the Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing team was able to secure a respectable 2nd place overall finish in the MX1 class.  Now the team will look ahead to the outdoor season and the MX Tour portion of the Triple Crown series.

MXGP OF PORTUGAL 2018

The 2018 FIM Motocross World Championship made its way to Portugal this weekend for Round 5 of the series at Crossdromo Internacional de Águeda.

 

Despite heavy rainfall and warnings of inclement weather throughout the weekend, conditions ended up nice and offered a great venue for some exciting racing. After a bit of a tough weekend results wise in Arco, HRC's Tim Gajser looked to get back to his normal stride in Portugal and Gautier Paulin continues to build on solid performances with the IceOne Husky team. On the MX2 side, both Calvin Vlaanderen and Bas Vaessen came into Portugal healthy and looking for strong results. The WMX class returned this weekend as well, and Courtney Duncan had her eyes on the red plate after scoring 2nd at the season opener last week at Arco. Unfortunately Max Anstie & Hunter Lawrence both missed this round as they are still recovering from injury.

 

Gajser was looking quick on Saturday and was 2nd fastest during timed qualifying with a 1:49.964. Paulin almost matched him, closely in 3rd with a 1:49.992. Later in the afternoon, Gajser secured 4th in the Qualifying Race, with Paulin a close 6th. Solid gate picks for the races on Sunday! In MX2, Vlaanderen was 6th and Vaessen 19th. 

 

The "Kiwi Girl" Courtney Duncan started the weekend off on top of the WMX field by 2 seconds in Qualifying Practice. She got off to a great start in Moto #1, grabbing the holeshot and building a nice lead early on. When the checkers flew, she had led every lap and took a commanding victory by over 20 seconds. In Moto #2, Duncan didn't quite get the holeshot, but was 2nd at the end of the first lap. She held 2nd for the first four laps before making the pass for the lead on Larissa Papenmeier. The perfect day was complete as Duncan took the checkered flag and she now holds the Overall points lead! The WMX series will now go on a brief pause and will return to action at Teutschenthal on May 20th. 

 

Tim Gajser got off to a great start in MXGP Moto #1, taking the green flag in 2nd position.Gautier Paulin was a close 4th, and moved into 3rd after the first few laps. Gajser eventually finished up in 3rd, with Paulin just behind in 4th place. On the MX2 side, Bas Vaessen was 10th in Moto #1, with Calvin Vlaanderen back in 18th after suffering a crash in the early laps. 

 

Tim Gajser was solid off the start again in MXGP Moto #2, rounding the first lap in 5th position. Unfortunately Gautier Paulin experienced a mechanical problem with his bike on the opening lap and would not be able to continue. Gajser rode a smart and consistent race to finish up in 5th, going 3-5 for 3rd Overall and his first podium result of the season. Great to see Tim back on the podium and working to overcome a tough preseason injury. 

 

In MX2 Moto #2, HRC's Calvin Vlaanderen turned things around for a solid 6th place finish, but the luck was flipped for Bas Vaessen who finished in 19th. Vlaanderen was 9th Overall with Vaessen 15th. The FIM Motocross World Championship now takes a brief pause before returning to action in Russia on May 1st.

MXGP OF RUSSIA 2018

Round 6 of the FIM Motocross World Championship visited Russia earlier this week, with the races being held on a Tuesday around International Workers' Day.

Coming off his first podium of the season in Portugal, HRC's Tim Gajser was looking to keep the momentum rolling. IceOne Husqvarna was back to full strength as Max Anstie returned from injury to join Gautier Paulin who is experiencing another strong campaign in 2018. Calvin Vlaanderen was our only MX2 pilot of the weekend, as the 114 Motorsports outfit sat idle with Hunter Lawrence & Bas Vaessen both injured. Lawrence will look to return at Round 7 in Latvia and Vaessen will be a few weeks longer. Our EMX 250 athletes were also back in action in Orlyonok, with Danish youth sensation Mikkel Haarup under the IceOne umbrella and German Jeremy Sydow on a private KTM effort. 

Tim Gajser got off to a strong start in Timed Practice as he set the fastest time in the session. Gautier Paulin was just a little over a second off in 3rd position, and Max Anstiewas 8th fastest. On the MX2 side, Calvin Vlaanderen was 6th fastest aboard his HRC machine. 

Vlaanderen had his best Qualifying Race performance of the season, earning himself 3rd spot on the grid for the motos. Anstie was 8th in the MXGP Quali Race, with Paulin10th. An early crash for Gajser had him starting in dead last, but the Slovenian was able to climb his way up to 14th at the end. 

 

Jeremy Sydow got off to a great start in EMX 250 Moto #1 as he grabbed the holeshot and led the opening lap. Unfortunately he would run into some bad luck and go down early on. Mikkel Haarup also had a solid start, running in 4th before he crashed as well and finished up 12th. Haarup got a tough start in Moto #2, but clawed his way up to 10th at the end for 11th Overall. 

 

Calvin Vlaanderen was 7th off the start in MX2 Moto #1 and rode a consistent race to finish up in 6th. The South African started off 7th again in Moto #2, but worked his way up to 4th this time. 6-4 Moto scores were good for 6th Overall and he now sits 6th in the Overall Points Standings. 

Gautier Paulin got off to a good start in MXGP Moto #1, taking the green flag in 4th. The consistent Frenchman would finish the race in 4th where he started, and Tim Gajser came from a 7th place start up to 5th. Max Anstie began his return to the races with a tough start back in 20th, but was able to work his way forward to 15th despite fighting off some arm pump. 

MXGP Moto #2 started in a positive way for Gajser as he sat in 3rd on the opening lap. The HRC lead man ended up 4th, going 5-4 for 5th Overall. Gautier Paulin was not so lucky and went down early on, putting him dead last on the opening lap. He put in an impressive charge however, and pushed all the way to 6th place which salvaged 6th Overall with 4-6 Moto scores. Max Anstie struggled with arm pump again in Moto #2 and ended up 16th Overall on the day.

Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series - AX Tour Round 4

*use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

Round 4 of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series arrived in Sarnia, Ontario for the first stop in the East and race fans filled the seats for a sell out event.  Track conditions were tacky and soft which made for very technical ruts for riders to navigate.

Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing MX2 rider Dylan Wright was unable to line up for the racing in Sarnia as he was still rehabbing a shoulder injury sustained at Round 3. MX1 rider Colton Facciotti was coming into Round 4 wanting to regain his points lead before going into the final weekend of racing in Barrie.

Only being 1 point out of the series lead, Facciotti looked comfortable on the track all morning and qualified with the second best lap time of the day.  In Heat 1, Facciotti got the holeshot and went on to lead every lap to the checkered flag.  In the Main Event, Facciotti battled in the top 3 positions but near the closing laps of the race, lapped traffic got heavy and Colton would collide with one, going down and moving back to a 6th place position.

1st – Cole Thompson

2nd – Matt Goerke

Race Report - AX Tour Round 2/3

*use arrows to scroll entire photo gallery*

Coming into the second stop of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series in Calgary, Alberta, Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing MX1 rider Colton Facciotti held the red plate signifying the series points lead and MX2 team rider Dylan Wright was anxious to make a statement after a disappointing first round.

Both team riders put in strong races during night 1 of the double-header.  Colton Facciotti and Dylan Wright both won their qualifiers and followed it up with an exciting battle over the Clash for Cash.  Facciotti eventually over-took Wright for the win and the extra Triple Crown points.  Facciotti went on to finish 3rd in the MX1 Main Event and Wright went on to finish 2nd in the MX2 Main Event proving that he has contender speed.

Rolling into night 2 of the Double-header, the race adrenaline levels were high and Colton Facciotti looked confident riding into the top MX1 qualifying spot. Dylan Wright was setting fast laps during the MX2 qualifiers, but crashed hard landing on his shoulder and was questionable for the Main Event.  Wright was forced to ride it out on the sidelines to collect any MX2 series points he could. During the MX1 Main Event, Facciotti didn’t back down and raced for the win but could only finish in 2nd place moving him backwards one spot to second overall in the Triple Crown.

The next Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series AX event resumes April 7th in Sarnia, Ontario.
