FEATURED RIDERS
Ken Roczen
FOX Moto-X LAB Athlete
Ken Roczen joined the Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Racing Team at the beginning of the 2011 season. Already known as one of the world’s hottest MX2 properties, the talented lad from Thüringen in Germany made his mark in the world of motocross by riding his KTM 250 SX-F factory bike to an end-of-season triumph.

Ken wrapped up the world championship season, winning eight of the 15 round GPs outright and taking second place on four occasions. Showing his fighting spirit, he vaulted back from a slight two-GP dip midseason, proving unstoppable right up until he secured the world title at home in Germany.

In 2011, Ken also rode selected races in the AMA SX Lites (West Coast) competition for the Red Bull Teka KTM factory team in the USA, under the leadership of Roger DeCoster. Despite travelling across the Atlantic, Ken managed to take his first SX Lites podium at Anaheim 2, where he finished third and secured his first SX Lites victory in Las Vegas at the close of the season.

In 2012 Ken raced full-time in the USA for the Red Bull KTM Factory Team and added to his skillset under the firm hand of DeCoster, a legend in the sport and a team manager of huge reputation and credentials.

And such tutelage obviously paid off, in 2013 Ken raced all the way to victory, becoming AMA Western Regional 250SX Champion. In 2014 he moved to the premier class in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship and, of course, won. After a transition year with the RCH Racing Suzuki team in 2015, Roczen took 2016 by storm winning multiple Supercross races and claiming the 2016 450 AMA Pro Motocross Championship with 9 of a possible 12 overall victories.

At the end of 2016, it was announced that Roczen will join the highly coveted Factory Honda HRC team, and has his eye on more titles in 2017 and beyond.

2018 MX Tour – Round 8 | 8/5/18

*Use arrows to scroll entire gallery*

 

As the MX Tour winds down to its final races of the season, Round 8 made its stop in the “la belle” province of Quebec.  The Deschambault Motocross facility is located 50km Southwest of the historic Quebec City.  A rough sand track with a clay base, mixed with the humidity of the East coast, the Deschambault track quickly becomes demanding on the riders.  The Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing team was holding the MX1 series leading red plate and hoped to extend that points lead heading into the final round of the season.  Debuting the Fox MX19 Honda Colab 180 racewear, the team had nothing but red on their mind.  The forecast for the day was cool and damp in the morning but clouds quickly evaporated and the blazing sun came out with heavy humidity.

 

Dylan Wright #12 – MX2:

No stranger to the Deschambault track, MX2 rider Dylan Wright has claimed numerous regional Amateur titles here early in his career.  Expecting nothing less than a victory, Dylan qualified for the day in 2nd position.  In Moto #1, Wright took advantage of his good start and made quick work in the early laps moving himself into the lead position by lap five.  Putting his head down, Dylan rode solid laps all the way to the checkers taking the moto win.  In Moto #2, Wright went down with rider on the opening lap which left him in 28th position.  Passing eighteen riders in three laps, Wright was on a mission to salvage a podium finish.  Advancing into the top five at the halfway point of the race, that was the best Dylan could do but it was enough to secure him 3rd overall on the day.

“Being out of the points chase, getting on the podium each weekend is the goal until we finish out the MX Tour, but I really want one more overall victory to end this season on a positive.” Dylan Wright. 3rd Overall

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – MX1

With the Championship pressure rising and the series begins closing, MX1 rider and 4-time champion, Colton Facciotti is no stranger to the task at hand.  Qualifying the day in pole position, Facciotti was looking comfortable on track and was the man to beat.  In Moto # 1, Facciotti rode patiently in the top-five lead pack, waiting to strike, but as he made his move into the third position, he slid out on an uphill section and remounted in seventh place while the lead pack took off.  Only able to take back one position before the finish, Colton finished the moto in 6th place.  In Moto #2, a frustrated Facciotti took the lead on the opening lap and never looked back claiming the moto win and salvaged valuable Championship points to earn his fifth podium finish of the season.  Losing only 4 points in his Championship lead, Facciotti remains in the drivers seat with a 22 point lead and still holds the red plate heading into the final race of the season.

“At this point in the series, the small mistakes are costly and I just need to stay focused and get the job done.” - Colton Facciotti  - 2nd Overall/MX1 series leader

2018 MX Tour – Round 7 | 7/27/18

*Use arrows to scroll entire gallery*

 

The MX Tour made it’s annual stop in the coastal Atlantic region for Round 7 of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown series.  The Riverglade MX Park, otherwise known as “The Glade” is located in Moncton New Brunswick, directly parallel the busiest road in Canada, The Transcanada Highway.  Nearing the end of the series, the race action at The Glade is always critical to the outcome of the Championships.  Round 7 was special for the Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing team as they made the new MX19 Fox Racewear debut for fans to get an early look at the new line.

 

Dylan Wright #12 – MX2:

Although he is out of Championship contention, MX2 rider Dylan Wright continues to race for wins and has two overall victories to his name this year. Looking to build off those, Dylan’s never give up riding style has been exciting to watch and leaves you on the edge of your seat every moto.  In Moto 1, Dylan had a late jump off the start which left him starting the race in 10th position.  Putting his head down and working his way through the pack, Wright secured the 5th place position in the closing laps.  In Moto 2, Dylan started the race with the lead pack of riders in 4th place.  Staying on pace, Dylan remained patient before making his move into the 3rd place position, but then disaster struck in the following corner when a lapper cut into his line and caused him to crash dropping him back down to 4th place where he finished the race and closed his day with a 5th overall.

“it was a frustrating weekend.  A bad start in Moto 1 and a crash with a lapper in Moto 2 was just the way the day was going for me and the podium just wasn’t in the cards this round….”  – Dylan Wright. 5th Overall

 

Colton Facciotti #45 – MX1

As the MX tour winds down to the final races of the season, MX2 rider Colton Facciotti has his sights set on his fourth Canadian MX Championship.  A healthy 25 point lead coming into Round 7, Facciotti’s goal was to protect that lead with consistency.  Qualifying in 1st place, Facciotti rolled into Moto 1 with confidence.  Getting the early lead on lap one, Colton checked out and lead every lap of the race for the win.  In Moto 2, Facciotti tipped over on the opening lap and was forced to battle back to salvage points.  With one lap remaining, Colton moved into the 6th place position and was in a four-way tie for the lead.  Facciotti was now one position away from clinching himself his fourth overall win of the season, but was unable to make the pass on the last lap finishing 6th for a 4th overall on the day.  No damage was done to his points lead, and Colton walked away increasing his series lead by 1 more point.

“Moncton’s moto scores were crazy, a four way tie for the win is something I’ve never seen before.  it’s a bummer that we couldn’t capitalize but at least we didn’t lose any championship points.”  Colton Facciotti  - 4rd Overall/MX1 series leader
