Catching Up with…Marcus Nilsen

Catching Up with…Marcus Nilsen By Billy Rainford Marcus Nilsen is the friendly Floridian we got to know over the past few years when he traveled north to race the Canadian Nationals. The #803 became a part of the traveling circus for a couple years and he had some great finishes along the way. He earned #43 for the 2017 season, but we never saw him up here running it. In

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Welcome to another Monday Morning Coffee from the confines of my living room couch. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I really hate it when Pro racing happens in Canada without me! Rounds 1 and 2 of the Future West Moto Arenacross Championships took place at the Agriplex out in Armstrong, BC. We had a pretty good idea who the main

Frid’Eh Update #43 Presented by Husqvarna Canada By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #43 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update. We didn’t get to see the number at the races this summer, as it seems Marcus Nilsen has taken a step back from motocross.

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford I guess I can officially welcome everyone to the ‘off season.’ The Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas is the event that keeps riders training after a long summer of Motocross racing and keeps them from taking the well-deserved vacations until mid-October. Actually, I guess Red Bull has added the Straight Rhythm one-off event taking place out in Pomona, California, this coming weekend as

Dawn McClintock and I booked seats on the same flight out of Detroit and were up early in the morning to make the 2 1/2 hour drive to Michigan from London, Ontario.

FXR Product Test | Clutch Prime and Slip On Air By Jeff McConkey Year after year, the gang at FXR continues to step up their game. Once known as just snowmobile gear, FXR has worked very hard to make an impact in the motocross world. The first few years of the motocross gear had very strong snow gear resemblance, but as of late, FXR Moto has fit the role. One
