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.

"It's a long series but we made the most of it when the opportunities were there.
