2018 Unadilla Moto Recap | 8/12/18

This past weekend, the AMA National Motocross series rolled into the famed Unadilla circuit with just 3 races left on the 2018 schedule. Fox team riders would be featured in the MX19 Motocross gear as they looked to finish the season strong.

As the riders rolled out for the qualifying sessions on Saturday, rain appeared on the horizon. The riders would escape wet conditions in the first qualifying session, but their luck wouldn't last long. The storm started just as the second qualifiers began. As a result, the times from the first session would hold up. The highlight for Fox Racing team would be Monster Kawasaki Pro Circuit rider Joey Savatgy. Joey put in strong laps and would walk away with the fastest time in the 250 class.

 

450 CLASS

Unadilla was a mudder. The first moto began during a torrential downpour. Ken Roczen would get out to a mid-pack start. As Ken pushed to the front, he would stop in the pit area for a new set of goggles. Before the final laps, almost every rider had made a trip to the pits for new goggles. Ken would eventually finish 7th in Moto 1.

Moto 2 would see the rain let up, but the damage to the track was already done. The mud would start to get sticky and cause a whole new set of problems for the riders. Ken got out to another mid-pack start. He would pull in for goggles early and then start to work towards the front of the pack. He would work his way to 7th which would give him 7th overall on the day.

 

250 CLASS

Moto 1 would see Joey Savatgy get out to a good start in the treacherous conditions, exiting the first turn in 2nd. He would slip back to 3rd early in the race. Joey would eventually go down and pick himself up to finish 7th in Moto 1. Austin Forkner would have a couple of crashes, finishing the moto in 23rd.

Moto 2 would see Savatgy get out to another good start. Joey would put in a consistent ride in the harsh conditions to finish 3rd in the moto and 4th overall on the day. Austin Forkner's 2nd moto would go much better than the first. He would push hard and ride consistently to finish 9th. His moto finishes of 23rd and 9th would put Austin 14th overall on the day.

BRUNI WINS IN MONT SAINTE-ANNE | 8/12/18

Last weekend, the 2018 UCI Downhill World Cup series made it’s way to the trails of Mont Sainte-Anne, Canada - the only North American stop on the schedule this season. It’s the 26th time that the World Cup has been held on the technical and challenging slopes of this legendary mountain which has provided many breathtaking races over the years.

This year would be another thriller, as the top three finishers were separated by just over a second. In the end, Fox team rider and current World Champion, Loic Bruni, would claim the top spot. With Loris Vergier’s win in Vallnord, this makes it two in a row for the Fox MTB Downhill Team.

Loic was on top of his game in Mont-Sainte-Anne. He blazed through the second and third sections of the course and stayed consistent the rest of the way to secure a .3 second win over a top-flight field.

 

"I’ve been trying all year, and today it happened. I’m so happy; It’s a sick place for me I’ve always loved [Mont St. Anne] and yeah... strong weekend."

 

The victory ended a rough streak for Loic, as multiple injuries, and a series of bad luck has kept him winless in the World Cup series so far this year. It was great to see it all come together for him in Canada. Loic looks to keep the momentum going as he and the rest of the Fox MTB Global DH team make their way to the loose and grassy slopes of La Bresse France for the first time since 2011.

The Fox Downhill team uses the premium downhill mountain bike gear including the podium-proven Rampage Pro Carbon helmet, Flexair jersey, pants, and gloves, and the race tested Launch Pro D3O guards. Ride what the pros wear. SHOP NOW
