Canadian Motocross Nationals - Round 6
Notre Dame Du-bon-Conseil, QC
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/ShiftMX 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
