McThoughts: Oakland SX By Jeff McConkey Hey, guys. For the fourth week in a row, we were treated to another great Saturday night. In 250 action, we saw another first-time winner in Malcolm Stewart. Nearing the end off the off-season, Malcolm had nothing on the go. He was forced to fund his own efforts for Red Bull Straight Rhythm and the Monster Cup and it paid off with a fill-in ride with Gieco
DMX Frid’Eh Update #3 Presented by Rekluse By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford Week #3 in 2015 belongs to the same rider it did in 2014 – Tyler Medaglia.

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Hola! I’m finally back from my 8-day, all-inclusive, non-moto trip to Cuba. I have never been one of those people who travel like this. Typically, my ‘warm destination’ trips have included a surf board and a back pack. I generally like to head to a place and make an attempt at living like the locals do. I don’t stay in a fancy hotel.

McThoughts: A2 By Jeff McConkey Round 3 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross went off Saturday night with lots of bangs. And by bangs, I mean bar banging. The racing had already been hot leading into Round 3, but you can bet that it is going to get a lot hotter as the series progresses.
