Dylan Wright #12 – MX2:

The early season struggles seemed to have been gone for Dylan Wright after a convincing 1-1 victory sweep at Round 3 in Prince George, BC.  Qualifying his day in fourth, Wright was on track for another podium challenge and battled hard with the series leader in Moto 1, but had to settle for a 2nd place finish.  In Moto 2, Dylan was again battling for the lead position until his bike unfortunately expired due to a mechanical with three laps remaining.  This scored Dylan a 2-DNF for 12th overall, and now shuffles him back to 7th overall in the MX2 Triple Crown series.
