Ulverton Update…  FIRST Overall!

July 10, 2016: Team MX101 FXR Yamaha had a great weekend at the Ulverton, Quebec, round of the Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals. Dylan Wright got 1st Overall, Jess Pettis 6th Overall, and Hayden Halstead 10th Overall.  This was Dylan’s first Overall Win of his pro career!

In the first moto, Dylan holeshot the race with Jess right behind him. Dylan put his head down and battled all moto long with Thompson, Maffenbeier and Alix and ended up 3rd and Jess not far behind for 5th.

The second moto had Dylan in the top three around the first corner and he kept driving hard the entire race to get 2nd in the moto.  During the battle for the moto win Thompson had an off course excursion that led to a 3 position penalty for track cutting.   Jess crashed while running 5th but kept pushing hard for a hard earned 10th, and Hayden Halstead pulled a 7th place.  Hayden with his 7th place finish earned a career best moto finish and continues to impress.

Dylan, Jess, and Hayden have moved up to 3rd, 6th and 9th in Championship Points respectively.  The team is planning to keep this pressure on at the next round in Truro, Nova Scotia, this coming weekend to keep moving up in the points.
