GPF – On a Tuesday…

GPF – On a Tuesday… Photos and captions by Billy Rainford The weather…oh, the weather. It finally cooperated today and I have the near heat exhaustion to prove it. It hit 80 degrees/24 C here at the Georgia Practice Facility (GPF). That meant I figured I’d try to get all my sun in one day. That’s what I like about me…I never learn. Anyway, with the beautiful weather came the

5-Lap Sprint: 2015 Royal Distributing Fox KTM Canada

5-Lap Sprint – Team Royal Distributing Fox KTM Canada By Jeff McConkey This past weekend, I was lucky enough to get the invite to Montreal to hangout with the 2015 Royal Distributing Fox KTM Canada race team. After a great day of team meetings, we followed it up with a nice dinner and then some serious go-kart racing. We asked several team members a few of the same questions. Let’s hear

Faces at the Races: Atlanta 2 SX

Faces at the Races: Atlanta 2 SX By Billy Rainford The second of two Atlanta rounds of the 2015 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series took place in a packed Georgia Dome in downtown Atlanta. This was the first Supercross I’ve been able to attend so I was pretty excited to get back behind the lens to shoot this race. Racing has been amazing and there are always a few riders

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford What we’ve got here, folks, is an old-fashioned ROAD TRIP! I’m not going to lie, sometimes the thought of these trips is much more romantic than the reality of sitting behind the wheel for 14 ½ hours, but if hitting the road as often as we do has taught me to adhere to only one old adage, it’s this one: be sure to stop

McThoughts: Atlanta 2 SX

McThoughts: Atlanta 2 SX By Jeff McConkey The second of 2 rounds in Atlanta went off on Saturday night. The track looked pretty tricky and lap times were a little longer. The start bottled in big-time making a good start crucial. Atlanta 2 was a ‘retro race’ and some of the teams went all out with some great looking old-school graphics. To go along with the retro bikes, a few gear companies jumped

Catching Up with…Jared Petruska

Catching Up with…Jared Petruska By Jeff McConkey It is kind of rare now a days to hear about a Professional racer that can juggle school, a Monday-Friday job and still get solid results. Jared Petruska is one of those guys. Not only does he bust his butt all week, he gets it done on the race track on Sundays. Add in the fact that he double-classed the Moncton National and

$2 Tuesday: Duncan MacLeod’s 2011 Mini O’s Crash By Billy Rainford Jeff did an ‘On the Radar’ article with Duncan MacLeod from Port Franks, Ontario, today we’ll make this ‘Duncan MacLeod Takeover Day.’ With this flashback column, I remembered I had a horrific 23-second video of Duncan crashing at the 2011 Mini O’s Supercross. We definitely recommend viewer discretion on this one as he takes a terrible hit after he
