Montreal Supercross Tonight

  • Olympic Stadium has played host to the Montreal SX since 1977. Only once since then did the event not run because of some structural issues with the building in 1991.
  • Team Toyota Yamaha/ Racing’s JSR’s team assembled a custom YZ450F for his final Montreal SX …
  • … and Andre Roy of 66 GraphX painted up a special lid for the King.
  • JSR’s teammate, and current Canadian MX1 champion, Colton Facciotti, is a contender for the win tonight. Facciotti won the all-Canadian MX2 class in 2005, but has yet to reach the podium in MX1.
  • Butler Brothers Honda’s Jason Thomas is a regular visitor to the Big O. Thomas won the event in 2005, and has finished second to Dusty Klatt and Ryan Clark in the last two. Can Thomas prove Danny Brault wrong and win again?
  • Jeff Gibson and his mechanic, Josh Wisenor, toured up together from Gibson’s home in Ohio for his final race as a Monster Energy/Cernic’s Kawasaki rider.
  • Suzuki/OTSFF/Rockstar’s Tyler Medaglia is going for the ironman award tonight, racing both classes. TM won last year’s MX2 final. His main competition in that class comes from his younger brother, Jeremy Medaglia, who is trying to seal a deal with Yamaha of Troy, and Kyle Beaton who is determined to keep it on two wheels for his first Montreal victory.
  • “KD Beets” set the second fastest lap time behind TM in practice yesterday.
  • Mr. Snowmobile, Blair Morgan, is looking to continue his momentum from the Canadian Nationals, where he finished fourth overall, into Montreal tonight.
  • KTM Canada’s Jeff Northrop was in contention for the win last year, after pulling the holeshot and leading the opening laps in the MX1 final. Norcal’s in better shape and on a better bike this time around and should be a threat for the win.
  • Arenacross ace, Tyler Bright, is in Montreal.
  • Two-time Canadian MX2 champion, Michael Willard, is in the house on his Cycra backed YZ450F. Loving the “Dogger” replica lid!
  • Jake Marsack, and his father, Jim, always make sure Montreal is on the schedule.
  • Montreal runs a little different format than an AMA Supercross. Along with the MX2 and MX1 supercross classes, there’s also ATV, autocross and freestyle. Philippe Bellerose was looking good on his Yamaha in ATV practice yesterday.
  • Gotta love the wild autocross dudes! See you in Montreal!
Bonjour, race fans, and welcome to the 31st Parts Canada Montreal Supercross! Arguably the biggest indoor motorsport event in the world, Olympic Stadium is preparing to fill up to the rafters with over 50,000 adrenaline-fueled junkies tonight.

This year’s race is a little more special than past events, as it’s five-time Canadian champ—and four-time Montreal winner—Jean-Sébastien Roy’s final Montreal SX (and probably major pro race). Carl Stone ventured up north for his first taste of la belle province (Quebec) and managed to catch yesterday’s final practice sessions.

Tune into for a live audio webcast from the event, which begins at 7 PM EST.
