ICYMI | Catching Up with Eric Jeffery

ICYMI | Catching Up with Eric Jeffery By Billy Rainford This week we Catch Up with Oshawa, Ontario, rider Eric Jeffery from the CTR Club MX Redemption Racing Yamaha team. Eric has been a fixture on the circuit for a bunch of years now. Just when we think he’s walking away from the sport to work more in the family business, he shows up with a lower number and does

ICYMI | Catching Up with Kaven Benoit

ICYMI | Catching Up with Kaven Benoit By Billy Rainford Kaven Benoit retired from full-time Professional Motocross last season, but it hasn’t seemed to slow down his competitiveness. He just raced the Challenge Quebec Provincial at his home track in Bon Conseil and it sounds like he had everyone covered speed-wise except Josh Cartwright in the 450 Pro class. Kaven did, however, take the overall in the class with 2-1

Catching Up with Women’s West Champ, Avrie Berry

Catching Up with Women’s West Champ, Avrie Berry By Billy Rainford We’ve got some really fast riders here in Canada to battle for both halves of our Women’s MX National series. Having Eve Brodeur head west for the first time to race but not for points added another top-level rider to the mix. When we added American World WMX competitor Avrie Berry this spring, we knew we were in for

ICYMI | Catching Up with Casey Keast

By Billy Rainford #25 Casey Keast is from Kelowna, BC and, at the beginning of the season, he wasn’t exactly sure how his summer was going to play out. He lined up at the first 3 rounds of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown MX Nationals at Wild Rose, Blackwater, and McNabb Valley MX, but what now? Casey came up through the ranks as a highly touted prospect, winning just about

Interview with Head Referee, Paul Kingsley

By Billy Rainford Being an official in any sport can be a thankless job, literally. I don’t remember the last time I thanked a referee at an event, but maybe it’s time I think about that at the next one I’m at. Having said that, MRC Head Referee, Paul Kingsley, seems to be able to walk the line between hardliner and sympathetic rule enforcer. Paul is as old school as

ICYMI | Catching Up with Jason Benny

We didn’t see #24 Jason Benny this weekend at McNabb Valley MX in Minnedosa, MB, but we’ll be seeing the friendly Quebeccer soon. Jason will join the series at Gopher Dunes for Round 4 of the 2019 Rockstar Triple Crown MX Nationals and race the remainder of the season. We grabbed Jason for a talk to find out what he’s been up to since we saw him last. Direct Motocross:

ICYMI | Catching Up with #23 Wyatt Waddell

By Billy Rainford I’ve known Wyatt Waddell and his dad, Laurie Waddell, for quite a few years now. It’s safe to say you will not meet two nicer people in the racing world, anywhere. Respectful and always displaying love for the sport and the people in it are two ways I would describe how these guys represent themselves, always. It really sucked when Wyatt had to miss his first Pro year (and then some!)

ICYMI | Catching Up with #19 Dylan Wright

ICYMI | Catching Up with #19 Dylan Wright By Billy Rainford   Dylan Wright just wrapped up the 4-round Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Arenacross championship and now sets his sights on the rest of the 3-part tour. Dylan is the rider who we watched progress through the amateur ranks as one of the most eye-catching and flashy riders we’ve ever seen here in Canada. His scrubs and 2-stroke skills are

ICYMI | Catching Up with Dillan Epstein

ICYMI | Catching Up with Dillan Epstein By Billy Rainford Catching Up with California rider, Dillan Epstein. | Bigwave photo Dillan Epstein was easily one of the most popular riders at the races, so it was sad for our series when he and his team parted ways. We hadn’t spoken with him in a few months, so it was nice to touch base with him. In fact, he’s such a

 ICYMI | Catching Up with Jess Pettis By Billy Rainford Catching Up with Prince George, BC native, Jess Pettis. | Bigwave photo Jess wasn’t in Abbotsford for round 1 of the Arenacross Series. He was down in Florida getting ready for the start of the Rockstar Motocross Series that will start on June 1st at Wild Rose in downtown Calgary, Alberta.
