Chad Reed
Known as one of the grittiest and most driven riders to ever grace the SX/MX scene, Australian born Chad Reed is truly one of the most decorated riders in the history of our sport. From risking it all and moving to Europe to chase MXGP glory at a young age, challenging the GOAT Ricky Carmichael at the peak of his career and investing in himself and doing things HIS way with his own team effort in TwoTwo Motorsports, Reed has done it all.

In 2001, Reed left his native Australia and punched his ticket to Europe to contest the FIM 250cc MX World Championship. He became the first Australian to ever win an MXGP that year and would eventually finish up his rookie MXGP Championship campaign in 2nd Place. Later that same year he made his first splash into the US based media when he battled the King of Supercross and his childhood hero Jeremy McGrath at the Paris-Bercy Supercross. Starting in 2002, Reed came to the US full-time and won his first SX title that year in the 125cc East Coast Supercross Series. The next year Reed made the quick jump to the premier 250cc class and battled Ricky Carmichael throughout an amazing season, ending it just 7 points shy of the title behind RC.

Reed captured the 250cc SX title the very next year, winning 10 out of 17 rounds of the series. Reed stayed competitive over the next few seasons and formed his own private team alongside Yamaha in 2007, dubbed L&M Racing. Reed began to carve out his reputation in the industry and became known for doing things his way or not at all. In 2009 Reed joined Factory Suzuki and he returned to MX racing after a two-year hiatus. He wrapped the AMA Motocross Championship at Round 10 of the series, earning the first outdoor title of his career.

After a tough and injury riddled year with Factory Kawasaki in 2010, Reed returned with a vengeance in 2011 with his own private team, aptly named TwoTwo Motorsports. Reed battled for the SX championship that year and ended up 2nd Overall by just 4 points on the season. Over the next few years Reed truly took on the People’s Champion role among SX & MX fans, battling for and earning multiple wins but also suffering some serious injuries that kept him out of overall title contention.

At the end of 2015 after shutting down his TwoTwo Motorsports effort for good, Reed reunited with Factory Yamaha, the brand with whom he started his career with in the US back in 2002. With multiple podium finishes in 2016, Reed enters 2017 feeling rejuvenated and ready to chase after more wins in the coming years.

2018 MX Tour – Round 5 | 7/7/18

*Use arrows to scroll through entire gallery*

The first stop of the Eastern leg of the MX Tour was in none other than the Nation’s Capital City of Ottawa, Ontario.  Located 30km west of the Parliament buildings, the Sand Del Lee facility is nestled into the outskirts of the West end of Munster, Ontario.  A clay based track that’s mainly comprised of sand, it forms harsh square edged bumps throughout the track and the jump faces get deeply rutted.  Often claimed to be riders favourite track of the circuit, the sweeping corners and multiple jump options, the racing at MX101 Sand Del Lee facility is always some of the most exciting of the year.

Dylan Wright #12 – MX2:

Growing up minutes from the track, hometown hero Dylan Wright was eager to put on a show for the local friends & family in attendance. Always a dream to win his home race, Dylan was hungrier than ever.  In moto 1, the eagerness got the best of Dylan as he over jumped the start gate and was forced to pull over after lap 1 to be penalized ten positions before being allowed to re-enter the track.  Determined to keep the dream alive, Wright charged back from 11th, back to 2nd place by the checkers.  In moto 2, Wright got a top five start and went to work getting himself into 2nd place by lap 7.  Knowing the overall win was in his hands with his current position, Dylan rode it in for the Overall Victory and earned himself the Dale Argue Memorial award.

“It’s always been a dream to win my hometown race.  It means a lot to me and everyone around here that’s supported me over the years, I could hear the fans cheering every lap and glad I could put on a show for them.” – Dylan Wright. MX2 Overall winner

Colton Facciotti #45 – MX1

Coming into Round 5 tied for the MX1 Championship, Colton Facciotti was needing to separate himself from the pack and regain full control of his lead. With two overall victories so far, Facciotti ‘s consistency every weekend is hard to match.  In moto 1, Colton rounded the first corner in the top 3 and held that position for the majority of the race before making a late pass for the 2nd place spot. In moto 2, Facciotti got off to another great top 3 start and made quick work moving himself into the lead at the halfway point of the race and then checked out for the win and the Overall victory.  This gives Colton his third Overall Victory this season and now has a 7 point lead in the MX1 championship.

“it’s a close point’s battle in the top 5 right now with  no room for error so it’s going to come down to consistency for this championship.” – Colton Facciotti. MX1 Overall winner/MX1 series leader
