McThoughts: A3

McThoughts: A3 By Jeff McConkey Round 5 took place this past Saturday night and it didn’t disappoint. Sure, there was hardly and bumping, but there was another “flag” issue. No, not another black flag, but this time a red flag. Yes, red flags are fairly common in SX, but not on the 6th lap. It’s kind of funny, John Gallagher can make an instant black flag call on Chad Reed

2015 Steel Shoe Fund 3hr Race: “America’s Numb Bum” By: Jarrett King Take a quick look through our sponsor list and if you aren’t from Alberta, Texas, Louisiana or a couple other key places then I’m willing to bet your first thoughts are “Uh-Huh… Oil Money”. What else could explain why three guys would attempt to compete in a race 3000kms away from home in a neighboring country? Our dedicated

McThoughts: Oakland SX

McThoughts: Oakland SX By Jeff McConkey Hey, guys. For the fourth week in a row, we were treated to another great Saturday night. In 250 action, we saw another first-time winner in Malcolm Stewart. Nearing the end off the off-season, Malcolm had nothing on the go. He was forced to fund his own efforts for Red Bull Straight Rhythm and the Monster Cup and it paid off with a fill-in ride with Gieco

The older of the two Medaglia Brothers is one of the most-liked and respected riders on the circuit. He’s great with the media, respectful to his fellow riders, but one of the fiercest competitors you’ll ever meet. Hard work and dedication

We all remember what happened that day in the rain – second motos were canceled after a long debate between Pro
