McThoughts: A2

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.

$2 Tuesday: The Canadians at Oak Hill 2010 By Billy Rainford   With the 39th running of the Oak Hill GNC coming up in March out in Decatur, Texas, I figured we’d take a look back to the 2010 event.

McThoughts: Phoenix SX

McThoughts: Phoenix SX By Jeff McConkey Round 2 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series went off this past Saturday night. The track allowed for better racing than what we had at round 1.

McThoughts: A1

McThoughts: A1 By Jeff McConkey We have been waiting impatiently for it, and we finally got it. This past Saturday, Supercross was back, which I am sure made a lot of ‘moto dorks’ happy. I, myself, have been counting down the days, and A1 was more exciting than New Year’s Eve: You have riders on new teams, new bikes, and one of my favourite things…new gear! How can you not
