Monday Morning with Bigwave

By Billy Rainford

Presented by Addikt Graphic.

So, anything interesting happen over the weekend? Wow, the Rockstar Triple Crown Supercross Series was back with a bang! After what seemed like an eternity away from racing up here in Canada, we were all back in action at the new Videotron Centre in Quebec City.

As we knew they would, the amateur riders supported this event well and we had full gates in all of the classes throughout the day. There was some great racing in every class and a few riders really stood out.

Amateur Supercross Classes

In the youngest class out there, #101 Ludovic Rivard was really hauling! Both he and 2nd place finisher, #9 Alec Guadagno, had the rest of the field covered, with young #15 Talon Medaglia rounding out the podium with his good, stand-as-much-as-he-can style.

The 65cc main was also a great one. #198 Antoine Poirier got out front and looked to have an easy win until #71 Dustin Burbridge came though the pack and almost had it! Great job, guys.

The Junior class was fun to watch as there were a couple riders who were going for it all day. #148 Felix Ouellet looked like the rider to beat, but he crashed in the first turn in the main event and his main rival, #517 Maxime Menard took it.

#53 Bjorn Viney took the Open Intermediate win ahead of some fast riders in that class. #20 Jeremy McKie hit the dirt a few times throughout the day and finally put together a solid ride in the main, finishing a pretty close second.

Viney looks extremely comfortable on indoor tracks and this skill should transfer nicely to the newly-formed Amateur Supercross racing this season in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series.

There was a good amount of young talent in the Intermediate Open main, with #53 Bjorn Viney getting the win over #20 Jeremy McKie and #562 Jamie Powell*. | Bigwave photo

*NB: We’re pretty sure #474 Hunter Vaughan was 3rd. There was an issue with the timing and scoring for this one and they were doing what they could to correct it at the table.

I’d also like to mention just how nice this facility is for hosting an event like this. It felt like a full-on Supercross with half the walking distance! It was perfect.

Media types were treated to perfect wifi and a great place to set up our camera bags and laptops that overlooked the track. It made for a really nice experience from our standpoint.

The floor was definitely not the same size as we’re used to seeing at the big football stadiums of the USA, but it was a bit bigger that a normal hockey rink, and it made for a good track with space around the edges for us to get around to all the different spots on the track. I really hope this is a venue that plays host to a round of our series in the future.

250 Pro

We’ll be sure to post a more in depth Photo Report here on the site ASAP, but we’ll outline the Pro classes here, briefly.

#3 Shawn Maffenbeier has already wrapped up the Rockstar Triple Crown title and the $10K prize that goes with it, so we are not trying to determine a Supercross champ.

#15 Jess Pettis is the one to beat in this discipline, for sure. As I discussed with MX101 team manager Kevin Tyler, trackside, Jess is doing little things out on these tracks that prove he belongs up in the next level of racing — Monster Energy AMA Supercross. Kevin immediately pointed out that “that’s where we’re going!” Good news.

250 Heat 1: #471 Logan Karnow got out in front early and took this one, wire to wire, ahead of his PRMX teammate, #725 Richard Jackson.

250 Heat 2: #27 Tanner Ward grabbed the holeshot in this one and really looked like he was trying hard to stay up at the front.

Pettis managed to make a nice pass to grab the lead and took the win, while Ward managed to stay ahead of Maffenbeier by about a wheel at the flag.

LCQ: #51 William Crete took the win in the LCQ. Both he and #55 Jack Wright felt the wrath of #727 Dave Blanchet in their heats and hit the turf, with Wright still managing to go straight to the main, albeit with a sore arm.

250 Main: Pettis got squeezed out off the start but somehow managed to make an inside line work around the first turn and came out behind Karnow out front.

Jess made a first lap move to the lead and it was left to Karnow and Maffenbeier to try to keep him in sight.

On the last lap, Jackson went down in the final turn and it forced to Pettis up high in the bowl turn. He paddled his way past and almost dropped off the far side of the turn which would have likely let the tight battle between Karnow and Maffenbeier by!

Things got interesting in the final turn of the final lap! | Bigwave photo

In the end, Pettis took another win with Karnow narrowly holding off Maffenbeier for 2nd after messing up a rhythm section to keep it close.

Pettis looks pretty comfortable out front, but the battle for 2nd place is far from over between Karnow and Maffenbeier.

250 Podium: Jess Pettis, Logan Karnow, Shawn Maffenbeier. | Bigwave photo

450 Pro

Yes, we’re slowly working our way to this one…

Remember when we thought the series had lost some momentum because of the long break between rounds 2 and 3? Well, you can toss that into the garbage!

Wow, I don’t know when I’ve seen this much drama at a Canadian Motocross race. There was tension in the air from the time the doors opened in the morning.

With there being such a large prize at the end of this one — $100K to the winner — there is more than ever at stake for the top few riders.

#16 Cole Thompson led the chase for the money by 11 points heading into this one. That’s a pretty solid lead for the rider who definitely shines in the Supercross discipline.

#45 Colton Facciotti was the rider trying to chop at that lead with only 2 rounds remaining. Let’s just say, things were pretty tense.

At the riders’ meeting, it was decided to up the potential penalty for any perceived dirty team tactics from a maximum of $5000 to a whopping $20000. That’s a huge increase, but there was also a huge increase in potential payout for the riders and teams — obviously, we’re talking about the KTM and GDR teams and riders here.

GDR rider, #12 Dylan Wright, has struggled this SX season and is out of the picture as far as series 250 points go, so he had been riding a 450 at the team’s practice facility, getting himself ready to race in the premier class.

This move was seen as a deliberate attempt to alter the outcome of the 450 points battle and is the main reason why there was an increase made to the potential penalty.

These aren’t my decisions to make, and I won’t get into opinion here, but I will say that I think it is well within the right of a team to inject a rider into the class to try and get in between the points leader and your rider. This move is done all over the world in all types of competition.

My preference would have been to see them tell both riders and teams that they are keeping a close watch on them and that they won’t stand for any perceived “nonsense” out on the track. That, I think, should have been the end of the conversation.

What happened became such a main topic of conversation that it was difficult to take 2 steps without talking to someone about the situation.

We spoke with both sides of this one before the night show, and you can watch both conversations here:

Derek Schuster – GDR Honda Fox Racing:

Justin Thompson – Jetwerx

So, Derek and his team decided to not have Dylan race the event. They wanted to stay out of any possible assumption that Dylan would only be there to “take Cole out” or anything like that. I disagreed with this decision but it’s the one they went with. It is well within a team’s right to put their rider in there, as long as they don’t do anything dumb or dangerous — this is Pro Sports.

There’s a little bit more to the story that will likely come out, eventually, but we’ll just leave it here. Jetwerx tried to keep racing clean and GDR decided to avoid any possible conflict and benched Dylan for the night.

Anyway, that was a bit of the back story.

450 Heat 1: #54 Phil Nicoletti got out front early with #5 Tyler Medaglia in tow. #20 Davey Fraser got out of shape in the rhythm section and went over the bars and into the face of the triple hard. He stayed down and was taken away on a board and off to the hospital to get checked out.

Here’s Davey’s post from his Instagram story:

Get well soon, Davey.

At the flag, it was Nicoletti, Medaglia, and then #393 Daniel Herrlein, who looked to be the quickest out there.

450 Heat 2: Cole Thompson got out front early and took the win. #2 Matt Goerke was 2nd, followed by Facciotti.

450 Main: Cole Thompson, Matt Goerke, and #777 Karl Normand were all down in turn 1 of the main event. Thompson got up pretty quickly and headed out at the back of the pack.

Facciotti was out front with Nicoletti and Medaglia behind him. The stage was set to make this a very exciting race!

While Colton was out front, Cole was coming through the pack quickly and making passes in every straight and corner, it seemed.

He made it up to 3rd and was trying to find a way around Nicoletti, whose bike seemed to get wider at that point.

When he finally got by for 2nd, it was only a matter of time before he was knocking on Colton’s door for the win.

Colton played good defense and continued to hit his marks and look for the white flag as Cole applied constant pressure and made a couple mistakes trying to find alternate lines.

We all knew it was going to come down to the final corner of the final lap, and it did.

All Colton had to do was hit the whoops solid one more time, protect the inside line, cross the transponder line, and take the win.

Well, he got out of control near the end of the whoops and swapped from side to side. It looked, to me, like this sort of forced him to go wider up into the bowl turn than he probably would have, otherwise.

Cole saw this opportunity and went for the victory.

As Colton started for the flag, Cole was there on the inside and the two made contact, sending them both to the ground.

Colton flew through the air and landed hard on his back and stayed there. Cole got off a little easier and was able to get up right away.

Nicoletti came through to collect 3rd place.

The question remained…Who won?

After studying the video replay, Jetwerx made the call that, when they crossed the transponder line (the line is buried in the dirt near the base of the finish line jump), it was Cole who had the slightest of edges on Colton, and he was awarded the win ahead of #45.

I spoke to one of the officials and they confirmed that it, literally, came down to a knobby at the line.

Of course, as we all know, the resulting discussion (and it’s still ongoing) is about the pass for the win. Was it clean or was it dirty.

I’m going to speak with both riders when they are willing to talk about it, so, until then, we’ll just let you guys out there give your opinions on social media. The comments have been nothing if not entertaining!

The other thing missed here is the absence of #7 Dillan Epstein. According to the Rockstar OTSFF Yamaha team, they have let Dillan go, with pay, so we won’t be seeing the likeable rider at the final round in Hamilton, either.

We’ll be sure to get in touch with him to find out what he’s got planned.

OK, there is just too much to talk about and so we’ll leave it here. I hope this got you through another cup on this Monday Morning.

We’ll continue to speak to more people involved in the Triple Crown Series and will post more up when we have it. The good news is that Colton is OK.

He’s at home now in Aylmer, Ontario, and is getting around, albeit rather gingerly. He will get his back checked out further this week and he has a contusion on his lung, but he will be OK.

Have a great week, everyone, and we’ll see you in Hamilton.

We’ll let Marco Cannella and Jamie Powell say it: “See you at the races… | Bigwave photo
