Frid’Eh Update #7 Presented by Pelican

Frid’Eh Update #7 Presented by Pelican By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford Week #7 belongs to an American rider we’ve become close enough with to call one of our own. I’m, of course, talking about New York State’s favourite motocross ex-pat, Bobby Kiniry. In 2014 we got used to seeing Bobby sway from his usual #3 and look like #7 James Stewart. Tyler Medaglia has since taken over the #3

2015 Ducati Hyperstrada Review By Kyle Carruthers Every day it seems like it is getting harder and harder to find a place to ride during the week when it comes to motocross. Unless you’re one of the select few to own private property or live close to one of the dozen major public tracks in Canada, it makes it harder and harder to get out during the week after work

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. It was round 7 for the premiere class, but it was round 1 for the 250 East class. The West 250 riders take a break and we get a whole new crop of racers ready to move up the SX ranks.

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
