Since we’re heading into the first round of the 2021 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships at Fox Raceway in Pala, California, what better way to celebrate it than with a Throwback Thursday to the time our 6-time Canadian MX Champion, Colton Facciotti, filled-in on the TLD Lucas Oil Honda team back in 2011?!

I got the chance to be there for this one…barely. A connecting flight in Chicago got cancelled and I was forced to stay in a hotel and fly out in the morning. I actually missed practice but made it for the motos.

Colton ran up front for a while in the first moto but then got taken out in the first turn in the second moto. I followed him around and then had quite a long chat at the end of the day.

We follow Colton Facciotti around at the final outdoor motocross race of the season at Pala Raceway. He finished 8-DNF for 14th overall.
