Dylan Wright ‘dialed in’ for his 450 class debut to win his first three motos at the 2020 Rockstar Triple Crown Motocross Pro Nationals at Gopher Dunes, south of Courtland.
Wright, who won the 250 in his first season with Honda Canada GDR Fox last year, was undefeated July 25-26 finishing 1-1-1 in Rounds 1 and 2 of a COVID-19 condensed season.
“I had some good starts and I was able to make some quick passes on the first couple of laps and get it done,” said Wright, from Ottawa, now living in Drummondville. “I had some good sprint speed here and it helps a little that it’s our home track. It’s a bonus to come off with three wins and to get the season going like that is always good.”
The weekend’s 30-plus C heat was a challenge for all riders.
“That last moto was tough, definitely. It’s draining, it’s hot. And you throw another moto in. I feel like this weekend I was able to pace myself a little bit to save something for the third moto, but I ain’t going to lie, I was tired.”
