Newly crowned MX1 Canadian National Champion Colton Facciotti will be heading to Tooele, Utah, this weekend to race the final round of the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. Facciotti will be filling in for TLD's 450 rider Malcolm Stewart, as he has opted out of racing the final round, still recovering from the residual effects of severe dehydration.
The grand finale for the Rockstar Energy Motocross Nationals took place on Sunday after the Walton TransCan. After a rough start with very wet conditions the track came together nicely. Have a look at some of the action from the day. We are all looking forward to the 2015 season. Thanks to all the riders for an entertaining year.
To continue the incredible momentum from 2013, Honda Canada is pleased to announce their new MX1 Rider will be three time CRMC Champion Colton Facciotti, for the upcoming 2014 season. Colton is an established winner and an excellent match for the improved Honda CRF450R.
So we’re past the half way point in the Monster Energy Motocross Nationals. With Gopher Dunes done there are only four rounds remaining in the 9 round series, Ste Julie, Riverglade, Sand Del Lee and Walton. Monster Energy/Leading Edge Kawasaki/Thor’s Matt Goerke has a tremendous lead in the MX1 class, having handed only a single win over to OSTFF/Rockstar Energy/Yamaha’s Bobby Kirniry. In his rookie year in the big bike class, Tyler Medaglia has managed to keep his Gopher Dunes Racing/Powersport Canada Honda/Troy Lee Designs ride in front of former teammates and series favourites Colton Facciotti and Dusty Klatt on their Red Bull/Royal Distributing/Fox Racing/KTMs.
Large trophies, prizing at every round and Fox race team replica jerseys awarded to series champions!
