It seems like the champagne corks were just popping mere months ago as Honda Canada GDR rider Colton Facciotti clinched the 2014 MX1 Championship at Walton but it’s time to get back at it. The 2015 Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals kick off this weekend at Whispering Pines Raceway in picturesque Kamloops BC and the GDR rig is loaded with the latest arsenal of Honda CRF weapons ready to do battle. All eyes will be on the red #1 plate at Round 1 but Facciotti and the team are feeling confident with a strong off season training regiment and an all new 2015 CRF 450R boasting more power, better handling and lighter weight than last year’s already potent race bike. “We learned a lot about the bike during the ’14 season and in addition to the upgrades Honda made from the factory for ’15 and with the right combination of world-class parts from our sponsors we have assembled a bike that will no doubt give Colt a chance to win each time the gate drops.” Says Derek Schuster, team owner. “We had a really strong off season as a team and although suffering a slight setback myself with an injury I’m back on the bike and feeling great,” says Facciotti. “We got some really good time aboard the new race bikes to get them dialed, Joe Skidd from SSS and Matt Jory from Proven Moto have been a huge help and we’ve really improved on an already impressive 2014 race package,” added Colton.
