MX1 Champion Matt Goerke PODCAST

MX1 Champion Matt Goerke PODCAST By Billy Rainford We got in touch with MX1 Champion Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha’s Matt Goerke last week and recorded a lengthy podcast with the Florida native who now calls Temecula, California, home. We included the podcast in Frid’Eh Update #1 last Friday but wanted to make sure everyone got a chance to listen to what he had to say about his latest injury that

McThoughts: The Weston Peick/Vince Friese ‘Incident’

McThoughts: The Weston Peick/Vince Friese ‘Incident’ By Jeff McConkey By now, everyone has seen the Weston Peick/Vince Friese incident over and over again.  Before I get started, I would like to make it clear that I am not employed by MotoConcepts, and no I am not Vince Friese’s long lost cousin or anything like that. Vince has a history of questionable riding. Some call it dirty, and few just think

McThoughts: 450 Supercross – A1

McThoughts: 450 Supercross – A1 By: Jeff McConkey Photos by: Tyler Spikman @spikman A1 went off on Saturday night. We’ve been waiting a long time and it didn’t disappoint. The class is truly stacked, and throughout the season there will be some high profile racers missing the main events. There was some drama in the heat race and semi race, but I’m honestly so sick of seeing it all over

McThoughts: 250 West Supercross – A1

McThoughts: 250 West Supercross – A1 By Jeff McConkey Photos by Tyler Spikman @spikman The 250 West kicked off on Saturday night. In what looked like it was going to be a mudder, actually turned into a pretty decent race. Most of the top guys finished around where they should and there was no real drama (compared to the 450 class). Let’s have a look at the results and see

Frid’Eh Update #1 Presented by Scott Motosports

Frid’Eh Update Presented by Scott Motosports By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford We’ve tuned the page on another year. Yep, we’ve come all the way around to Week #1 here at the old Frid’Eh Update desk. Technically, last Frid’Eh was the first Friday of the year, but it fell directly on New Year’s Day so we felt it better to get things rolling this week instead. It may mean we

Podcast: Scott ‘Donk’ Donkersgoed

Podcast: Scott ‘Donk’ Donkersgoed By Billy Rainford Donk, as he’s simply known, has been around the sport for a long time. He’s got skills riding a bike but it’s working on them that lit the fire in his belly that has seen him crisscross the globe over the past several years. He’s worked for Canadian teams and American teams in motocross, Supercross, and off-road. He just celebrated a birthday a

This Pro’s POV – A Column by Nathan Bles By Nathan Bles Off-Season for Canadian Pros Race season has come and gone. For many racers it’s back to school, back to work or just continue their job. Ever wonder what the professional motocross riders are up to? It’s different with every pro rider. Some pros are established and have contracts that continue another year that simplifies things a little. They

McThoughts: 450 SX Predictions

McThoughts: 450 SX Predictions By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford This year’s group in the 450 SX class is very impressive. We will have ex-250 SX champs struggling to make the top 10, and we will even see some big names missing main events. It’s hard to bet against Ryan Dungey, but there are certainly some serious players that can steal his title. It will honestly come down to

5th Annual DMX Canadian MX Nationals Awards

5th Annual DMX Canadian MX Nationals Awards By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford It’s that time of year again. The dust has settled – literally – and we’ve had a chance to come up for air and reflect on the summer of Pro racing at the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals. It would be easy to simply call that the best summer we’ve ever seen in Canada, but that wouldn’t do
