Catching Up with…JSR

Catching Up with…JSR By Billy Rainford Every sport has its fair share of superstars – athletes who immediately pop into your mind when the topic of ‘greats’ is raised. Hockey has Gretzky and Lemieux, car racing has Andretti and Senna, boxing has Ali and Leonard. In Canadian motocross, at or very near the top of the list would be JSR. Jean-Sebastien Roy was at the top of the game for

McThoughts: Dallas SX

McThoughts: Dallas SX By Jeff McConkey Hey, guys.  The Monster Energy AMA Supercross series was in Arlington, Texas, this past Saturday night.

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.
