ICYMI | Catching Up with Jayce Pennington

ICYMI | Catching Up with Jayce Pennington By Billy Rainford I’d seen Jayce racing down south in the past but had never met the rider from Illinois until he came north to race out series in 2019. He came in with a ton of potential, but struggled with a few lingering injuries that prevented him from performing at the level he was hoping for. Here’s a look at his 2019 Rockstar

Catching Up with Brad Clifford from Migration Unlimited Training

Catching Up with Brad Clifford from Migration Unlimited Training By Greg Poisson Photos by Matt Johnson As a casual onlooker, we see motocross athletes as daredevils, throwing around a 200lb motorcycle through various situations and wonder how they do it… Most top racers these days have a trainer, someone to take the thinking out of the hard work they put in.

ICYMI | Catching Up with Jack Wright

ICYMI | Catching Up with Jack Wright By Billy Rainford Jack Wright is the rider who should be out there representing the #34, but he suffered a pre-season crash that resulted in a broken leg.

ICYMI | Catching Up with Hayden Halstead | Yamaha Motor Canada

ICYMI | Catching Up with Hayden Halstead | Yamaha Motor Canada By Billy Rainford I get to know pretty much all of the racers and their families in Canadian Motocross and, like I always say, it’s my favourite part of this gig I’ve carved out for myself. When I’m at the races, there is about a zero percent chance that I’m not going to spend time with Hayden and the

ICYMI | Catching up with Chase Marquier

ICYMI | Catching up with Chase Marquier By Billy Rainford We met him last season at McNabb Valley MX in Minnedosa, Manitoba. Chase Marquier is the super-nice guy from Oklahoma with the fancy French name. Most people know there’s another person out there roaming the world with the same name as them, but I bet Chase is an original. Chase was the fill-in rider for the Manluk Racing Team when Cheyenne Harmon did a number on himself at

ICYMI | Catching Up with Brad Nauditt By Billy Rainford Washington State rider, Brad Nauditt. It seems like just yesterday the holeshot master was making his debut up here in Canada, but it was like 10 years ago now!
