Yamaha Motor Canada Presents Style Check- Montreal Supercross

On Saturday evening, our top Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series riders will join Malcolm Stewart, Dean Wilson and Justin Brayton inside the infamous Olympic Stadium for the 2019 Montreal SX. With this event marking the beginning of the final leg of the 2019 Triple Crown Series, things will get very interesting in Montreal. Last year, Malcolm Stewart came to Montreal and dominated all three main events in the 450 class, while Jess Pettis took the victory in the 250 class. The racing was excellent as the three main events were definitely entertaining for the fans. This year, Montreal will welcome back Stewart to defend his 2018 win, but we will also get to watch Dean Wilson and Justin Brayton battle it out, too.

In 2018, KTM rider Cole Thompson was the top Canadian rider as he fought hard to finish 4th overall. Cole is well known as one of Canada’s best SX riders so it was no surprise that his did so well. This year Cole comes to Montreal healthy after a back injury slowed him down for most of the summer. You can bet that Cole is very excited to head back indoors where he feels most comfortable. Also, since he’s trailing Phil Nicoletti in the overall 450 Triple Crown standings, Cole most certainly has some ground to make up if he wants to repeat as the Triple Crown Champion.

In the 250 class, fans in Montreal should definitely be looking forward to the impending battle between Jess Pettis and Dylan Wright. As you may recall, Pettis began 2019 as our SX hero with some excellent results in the Monster Energy Supercross Series. Since those early rounds of SX down south, the spotlight in Canada has been shining directly on Dylan Wright after winning both the AXTour and MXTour titles. So, with both riders coming into Montreal healthy and extremely motivated to win, the racing should be incredible. The race will also be broadcast live on Fox Sports so all of North America will be able to tune in. With just over two days left until the gate drops in Montreal, here are the updated Triple Crown point standings as we head into Round 1 of the SXTour Series:

450 Class:

1.Phil Nicoletti- 481

2.Cole Thompson- 456
