FEATURED RIDERS
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.

Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series MX Tour Round 3 | 6/15/19

Located in the longitudinal center of Canada, the prairie province of Manitoba is known as ‘gateway to the west’ and the vast agriculture fields lay flat, sprawling for over 600,000 sq/km (250,000sq/mi).  Round 3 of the MX Tour was held at McNabb Valley Raceway which is surrounded by rolling canola fields and is a popular layout amongst the riders. 

Poor weather was lurking, and while rain is otherwise welcomed for farming, the skies turned on race day and conditions became one of a struggle and strategy. After qualifications were in the books, it was announced the moto’s would be shorted five minutes each. But after the first moto’s struggles, the Jetwerx promoters were required to announce the second moto’s would be canceled; and first moto scores would count as the Overall positions.

 

250cc – Dylan Wright: 1st Overall.

Mud riding requires a wide-open throttle and Dylan Wright’s riding style always favours a pin it to win it setting.  Clocking the fastest qualifying time of the morning when the track was still in an adequate condition, Wright earned himself the very important first gate pick in Moto 1.

 

The most important part of the mud race is always going to be the start.  Wright held on to come around lap one in 4th place, but without vision.  Putting his head down and gritting it out passing his way into the lead by lap five, Wright rode out the next five laps to take an impressive moto win, and the subsequent overall victory keeping his 250cc series points lead and the Red Plate.

 

450cc – Colton Facciotti: 2nd overall.

Coming into Round 3 with the momentum of last weekend’s first overall victory and carrying the 450cc series leading Red Plate for this thirteenth weekend, Colton Facciotti needed to back it up before the MX Tour takes a month long break before Round 4 resumes in the East.

 

Looking strong in Qualifications with a second place time, Facciotti made his gate selection and hoped for the best.  A bad jump off and slow pull down the start left Facciotti working his way around the track on lap one in 5th place.  After picking off several downed riders at the mid-way point of the moto, Facciotti settled into 2nd place and rode it in for the eventual Overall Podium finish.  With his podium finish, Facciotti extended his points lead to 8 and continues his Red Plate streak to 14 races in a row.

 

450cc – Mike Alessi: 9th Overall.

Still looking for his first podium finish of the season, Mike Alessi has had a consistent West coast, leading laps and racing inside the top five battles each moto.  Qualifying in 6th place, Alessi would hope for a patented MA800 holeshot to keep him up front in the muddy Minnedosa conditions.  Unfortunately, Alessi got his season’s worst start in 12th place and was buried in the pack salvaging his way up to 9th place by the end of lap eleven.  Alessi will start the East coast with in a respectable top five and be in full stride for his podium run.

 

The next race of the MX Tour will be in the deep sand of Gopher Dunes.  The South-Western Ontario track is the home base for the Honda Canada/GDR/Fox Racing team and they will proudly carry both Red Plates to the starting line of their home race.  The GDR Squad has been red hot this season and has been on every Overall podium in both 250cc & 450cc classes at every race this season.  The mid-season break will be utilized wisely by the team to come back even more prepared to win.
