Moncton, NB Update…

July 31, 2016: Team MX101 FXR Yamaha had another great weekend at River Glade near Moncton, NB, round 8 of the Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals. Dylan Wright scored 2nd Overall, Jess Pettis 7th Overall, and Hayden Halstead 9th Overall.

Dylan Wright rode smart and consistent and proved his mental and physical toughness with some great late moto passes.  3-2 on the day saw him visit the box in both motos and 2nd overall on the day just missing the top spot by 1 point.  Jess had great speed this week and challenged around the top 5 both motos.   Unfortunately late in moto 1 while coming through the lappers he got caught up and 2 riders slipped by leaving him 7th. Moto 2 saw him battling hard to break into the top 3.   While he was going for the pass on the outside saw his line had blown out, and after an off the track excursion, he was left struggling to remount.   He shook off the tip over and managed to secure a 6th for 7th overall on the day. Halstead continued his streak of top 10’s with two solid motos following two great starts.  He is closing in on the lead pack every week as he gets stronger and stronger on the YZ250F.  His 9-8 scores were good enough for 9th overall.

Dylan, Jess, and Hayden are now to 3rd, 6th and 8th in Championship Points respectively.  Deschambault is one of Dylan’s favourite tracks on the tour and he is looking to climb back on to the top step this coming weekend in Quebec.  Deschambault promises to be a battle as they head back to the deep, rough sand, which tends to reward the toughest competitors.  Team MX101 FXR Yamaha is ready.
