Honda Canada Returns as Presenting Sponsor of Supercross Montreal

Honda Canada is proud to be returning as the presenting sponsor of Supercross Montreal. First on the Canadian Supercross tour and returning to the Montreal Olympic Stadium after a five-year hiatus on September 15th, the Canadian marque racing event will feature top Canadian talent, including Honda GDR Fox five-time Canadian Champion, CRF450R Rider, Colton Facciotti. Teammate and MX2 rider Dylan Wright will also be competing on his CRF250R and working towards a podium finish in his first Montreal Supercross event. 

 

With the Canadian National MX Championship now nicely tucked away, Facciotto is looking forward to his next big goal, taking the Canadian National Triple Crown Championship title.  With this in mind, he will be working to use this first event to take the lead in that overall championship title. Currently sitting in second place and separated by only two points going in Saturday’s event, Colton is sure to be focused and ready, come race day. 

 

“Racing is in our DNA, so we are thrilled to share this passion with so many motorcycle enthusiasts by supporting the Montreal Supercross event,” said Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Honda Canada Inc. “The calibre of talent that the Honda GDR Fox race team have supported including five-time champion, Colton Facciotti andthe up and coming Dylan Wright in his 2nd year aboard the CRF250R, seems to be the perfect formula for what’s sure to be an exciting race day.”

 

Honda Canada will be on site in the food court area of the Olympic Stadium, showcasing a full lineup of dirt bikes for fans to interact with. For those who want to meet with the Honda GDR Fox team riders and get autographs they will be on hand Saturday afternoon between 6pm and 7pm.  Make sure you stop by and see the team, and wish them luck as they kick off the Supercross season.
