TLD Thursday Wallpapers: 2012 Walton National By Billy Rainford Since I have yet to get myself to a race this winter, I went back to the well and combined #tbt with the Troy Lee Designs Thursday Wallpapers again this week. I’m always trying to think of a theme, and this week is no different. We could play one of those, “Guess the connection between all these songs” sorta things. Would

Product Test: Rekluse EXP Core 3.0 Clutch Installation

Product Test: Rekluse EXP Core 3.0 Clutch Installation By Jeff McConkey   Just before Christmas, DMX bossman, Bigwave Billy, texted me asking if I’d be interested in testing a new Rekluse clutch.  I quickly jumped at the chance and replied almost instantly. Although I had never tried one in the past, I had heard nothing but good things about the product. My first thought was, “Oh no, I hope they

McThoughts: 250 East Lites Preview

McThoughts: 250 East Lites Preview By Jeff McConkey The Monster Energy AMA East Lites is fast approaching. It just won’t be the same without its one and only Canadian stop in Toronto. I understand the call, but it doesn’t mean I have to like it. Atlanta gets 2 stops back-to-back which is cool. They get 77000-plus in the Georgia Dome, so it makes sense. Maybe I can talk Bigwave into getting me

McThoughts: San Diego SX

McThoughts: San Diego SX By Jeff McConkey Round 6 took place this past Saturday night and the action was fantastic as always. San Diego will be the last West round for a while as the East Coast 250 series starts this weekend in Arlington, Texas. Most riders want to head into  the break on a good note, and that almost didn’t happen for points leader Cooper Webb. Webb had a vicious

Vicki Golden Will Attempt to Qualify for East Lites SX in 2015 – Reactions By Jeff McConkey As most of you are aware, female rider, Vicki Golden, will be racing the 250 East SX for 2015.

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 3-Hour Race – An Epic Tale by Jarrett King

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
