<![CDATA[Three’s a charm for Blose at Round 2 of AX Tour in Barrie]]> http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/threes-a-charm-for-blose-at-round-2-of-ax-tour-in-barrie With a third place in the AX Pro and AX Lites mains, Chris Blose assured Team Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha podium finishes at Round 2 of the Canadian National AX Tour in Barrie, ON, keeping him solidly entrenched in the points chase as the eastern leg of the series wrapped up this past weekend.

In the Clash for Cash feature event—pitting the top six finishers from the AX classes—Blose battled tooth-and-nail to exchange a fifth place starting position for second at the finish line.

Blose kicked off the showdown at Molson Centre with the fastest qualifying time in both classes aboard his potent YZ250F.

“Despite a few setbacks on the track tonight, and still tweaking a few things on the bike for Chris, it was another good night for the team. We’re in the title hunt in both classes and that’s where we want to be. We’re looking forward to the next round out west and we’ll be gunning for a repeat of the Round 1 sweep,” team manager Steve Simms said.

After leading the field in the qualifiers, clocking the fastest time, Blose kept the express train rolling in the heat races. In AX Pro, he parlayed a second place start behind Brock Leitner into first place just a few corners into the race. The Arizona native went on to pull a sizeable gap on Leitner, taking the lead all the way to the finish line.

In his AX Lites heat race, Blose more or less delivered a rerun of the AX Pro heat results. But this time out it was holeshooter Colton Facciotti who found himself the target of a quick pass on lap one. At that point nothing changed up front. Blose crossed the finish line without having to worry about any serious challenges for the lead from Facciotti.

Moving on to the AX Pro 10-lap main, Blose snared another second place start, following Facciotti into turn one. Blose kept the multi-time motocross champ in his crosshairs for a few laps before attempting a pass. In the process of taking over the lead, however, Blose made contact with Facciotti, sending both riders for a soil sample.



Steve Mages, running in third place, proved to be the beneficiary of Blose and Facciotti’s tangle. The Ohio native handily inherited the lead, which he would keep for the remainder of the race. Meanwhile, Facciotti managed to get back into the fray before Blose and would finish second. Blose, who remounted in fifth place, was able to redeem himself by grabbing third in the remaining laps.



A less auspicious start in the 10-lap Pro Lites main saw Blose get out of the gate in a tepid fifth place. In the heat of battle, he was briefly relegated to sixth when he was edged off of the track just before the whoops section. With just a few laps to go, Blose recovered to make his way into third, again following Mages and Facciotti across the finish line to complete the podium.

In the 20-Lap Clash for Cash, Blose was on top of his game, nailing the holeshot and quickly checking out on the frontrunners. But it was all in vain due to a crash by Facciotti and another rider, which saw the race red-flagged. The restart was less kind to Blose, who found himself in fifth after one lap. He put his head down and soldiered on to systematically slice and dice his way into a respectable second place finish behind Facciotti.


“All in all I’m happy with my results tonight, walking away with podiums and grabbing more points towards the championship in both classes. I did have a few more challenges to deal with compared to last weekend, but once again the crew did an excellent job to keep me competitive and feeling good on the YZ250F,” Blose said.

Rockstar Energy OTSFF MotoPark Yamaha support rider Marco Cannella, who made his Canadian National AX Tour debut in the AX Lites class and Clash for Cash action at Round 1, continued to impress in Barrie, running with the top pros.

Sixteen-year-old Cannella nailed down sixth place in the AX Lites main and, with a well-earned fifth place, sealed the top-five in the Clash for Cash.

The Canadian National AX Tour continues after a two-week break in the schedule at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton, BC on Saturday, October 29th.

<![CDATA[Goerke snares third overall in Deschambault]]> http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/goerke-snares-third-overall-in-deschambault Press Release

(Brampton, ON – August 8, 2016)


The penultimate round of the Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals was held this past Sunday at the spectacular Motocross Deschambault circuit in Deschambault, Quebec, a short distance from the province’s capital, Quebec City.


Similar to Quebec’s other national motocross track in Ulverton, Motocross Deschambault is comprised of soft, loamy, sand-based soil, which features a number of elevation changes and a steep drop-off. The combination of these ingredients seriously challenged the riders’ technical skills and physical condition, which resulted in plenty of thrills and spills.


Although rain threatened the event, except for a few drops, Deschambault dodged the bullet. And with temperatures that did not climb above 22°C, it was the coolest weather to date for the eastern leg of the MX1 and MX2 Championship. 


Team Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha’s Matt Goerke and Brett Metcalfe again rode the wheels off their YZ450Fs, which meant an MX1 podium finish for Metcalfe in the first moto and one for Goerke in the second. With a fourth place in the first moto, Goerke finished the day in third overall, solidifying his hold on second place in the points.


What was shaping up to be another stellar weekend for the teammates was marred when Metcalfe went down hard around the midway mark of moto two, which left him unable to complete the race. It was his first DNF of the season and put him in 13th overall on the day.


Metcalfe’s crash left him with a fractured jaw and severe bruising of the body. He is not expected to race the final round this Sunday. But with a gap of 36 points on Benoit in the points standings, there is still a chance Metcalfe will wrap up the season in third place. 


The first MX1 moto saw Metcalfe and Goerke grab a top-five start that had all the promise of putting them in the mix for podium finishes. A pile-up in a very tight turn two, however, which Metcalfe managed to escape relatively unscathed, put Goerke towards the back of the pack.


Other than lose precious seconds on frontrunners Davi Millsaps and Kaven Benoit, Metcalfe had a grip on third place, four laps into the race. He found himself too far behind Benoit and Millsaps, however, to mount a charge for position. Riding in a lonesome third, the Australian would maintain that position until the finish line.


Goerke, meanwhile, who has faced more than his share of catch-up races this season, had rocketed into 18th place by the end of lap 2. He would spend the remainder of the moto picking off rider after rider, to install himself into a respectable fourth place in the closing laps of the race.   


The start of the second moto again put Goerke and Metcalfe in the top-five. Metcalfe reached turn one in second place, with Goerke right behind him. Some daring passes by Davi Millsaps, winner of the first moto, saw Goerke and Metcalfe succumb to the Florida native on lap 2. A bobble by Metcalfe shortly thereafter, meant he was relegated to fifth place, handing over third to Goerke.


For the next six laps Goerke stalked Millsaps before finally sticking a pass on him. The battle between them raged for the remainder of the moto, with Millsaps dropping back in the closing stages while Goerke set his sights on first place, which was under the command of Benoit.

With time running out, however, Goerke had to settle for second place at the checkered flag while Benoit took the overall in front of a massive home-province crowd.


“Considering the first moto was a bit of a disaster, I’m still happy with the way I rode this weekend. I felt good out there, my Rockstar OTSFF Yamaha worked flawlessly and did what it had to do. The team did another great job behind the scenes so I could do my bit on the track. The track was tough, very unforgiving, and so were Kaven, Davi, and Brett. It’s a bummer Brett got hurt in the second moto and I wish him a speedy recovery,” Goerke said.   


The Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals continue for the final round of the series on Sunday, August 14, 2016 at RJ Motosport Park in Barrie, Ontario.


MX1 Overall Results: Round 9 – Deschambault, QC


1. Kaven Benoit (KTM) 2-1

<![CDATA[Strong Rockstar Energy Line Up at ISDE]]> http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/strong-rockstar-energy-line-up-at-isde MCCANNEY, RAUCHENECKER, GARCIA & STRANG LEAD ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA IN SPAIN
Husqvarna Motorcycles enters the 91st International Six Days Enduro with an impressive array of 21 World Trophy riders set to represent their respective nations at the prestigious annual event being held in Navarra, Spain. Among them Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing riders Danny McCanney, Pascal Rauchenecker, Josep Garcia and Josh Strang will race for Great Britain, Austria, Spain and Australia respectively.

Counting down the days to the start of this year’s event on Tuesday, October 11, Danny McCanney will make his international racing debut aboard Husqvarna’s TE 300 2-stroke machine as a member of Great Britain’s World Trophy Team. Wrapping up the Enduro World Championship season with a total of six podium results and a strong third place finish in the Enduro 1 class, the Manxman has the experience to be among the frontrunners next week in Spain as he switches to Enduro 3 class machinery.

Fresh from his participation at this year’s Motocross of Nations in Maggiora, Italy Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Pascal Rauchenecker is ready to represent Team Austria for the first time at the International Six Days Enduro. Performing strongly in the 2016 Enduro World Championship, Pascal will look to wrap up his debut enduro season on a high note in Spain.

Claiming Enduro Junior class victory on the very last day of the 2016 Enduro World Championship, Josep Garcia is looking forward to representing Spain’s Junior World Trophy Team on home soil during this year’s ISDE. Racing his FE 250 in the Enduro 1 class the Spanish youngster will also have the chance to go head-to-head with some of the best 250F mounted enduro riders in the world.

A member of the USA’s World Trophy Team, Thad Duvall is another Husqvarna rider who has the depth of experience needed to be among the frontrunners at this year’s ISDE. Suffering an arm injury during last weekend’s AMA GNCC, 2015 ISDE overall winner and Husqvarna FE 350 rider Ryan Sipes has been forced to sit out the event.

Husqvarna riders also make up for 50% of Australia’s World Trophy Team, with Josh Strang and Lachlan Stanford eager to defend the World Trophy Team title Australia won last year in Spain.

Along with 21 World Trophy Team riders, Husqvarna Motorcycles is proud to have 15 youngsters representing their respective countries in the ISDE’s Junior World Trophy category. In the Women’s World Trophy class 20-year-old Katarina Jurickova will race a Husqvarna TE 125 for Slovakia’s.

The 91st ISDE will take place in Navarra, Spain on October 11 to 16.

Danny McCanney (Great Britain World Trophy Team): “I’m looking forward to a fun week of racing in Spain. It’s always a great honour to represent your country at the ISDE. For me it’s going to be a little extra special, as I’ll be racing Husqvarna’s TE 300. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks training on the 2-stroke bike and I’m really looking forward to racing it in Spain. Along with helping Great Britain get a good overall result, I think a top three or even a win in the Enduro 3 class is well within my reach.”

Pascal Rauchenecker (Austria World Trophy Team): “I’m really excited for the ISDE. It’ll be the best way for me to wrap up my first full season in enduro racing. It’s going to be my first six-day event but I’m more than ready to battle for my country. My speed is good at the moment, but for such a long and exhausting event I’ll have to make sure I save energy for the last couple of days. It’s a completely new challenge for me, but I’m really looking forward to it.”

Josep Garcia (Spain Junior Trophy Team): “I’m feeling very good on the bike at the moment so I can’t wait for the ISDE to begin. Taking place in Spain makes it a little more important for our team and for me. I might not be the most experienced ISDE rider but I’m up for the challenge. My riding has been good during the last few GPs so hopefully I can put in a strong week and deliver a solid result for Team Spain.”]]>
