Frid’Eh Update #8 Presented by the Toronto Supercross

Frid’Eh Update #8 Presented by the Toronto Supercross By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford Welcome to week #8 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update presented by the Toronto Supercross. It’s great to talk to the rider who will run this number in 2017 so early in the season. You see, this is, by far, the best number of his moto career. Keylan Meston is the no-nonsense rider putting in the hard

Frid’Eh Update #6 Presented by Toronto Supercross

Frid’Eh Update #6 Presented by Toronto Supercross By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford Welcome to Frid’Eh Update #6. As we head into this weekend, winter has returned to the majority of the country, including the west coast. I’m sure it means most won’t have the opportunity to ride in the next few days, but the ground hog didn’t see his shadow…that’s good, right??? Anyway, in 2017, #6 belongs to the

Frid’Eh Update #5 Presented by Gamma Powersports

Frid’Eh Update # 5 Presented by Gamma Powersports By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford In 2017, #5 belongs to #800 Mike Alessi. Mike was back in action last summer and really seemed to enjoy his time north of the border. Mike could always be found hanging around the starting line before the MX2 motos chatting with riders and giving gate pick advise to those who asked. Mike has always been known

Frid’Eh Update #4 Presented by Shot Race Gear By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #4 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update this week brought to you by Shot Race Gear.

We’ve been doing these Frid’Eh Updates for quite a few years now, but only a select few riders get to grace the lead photo and lead interview as #1. We like to think it’s a big deal. So, here’s DMX Frid’Eh Update #1 Presented by KTM Canada. Having said

Frid’Eh Update #53 Presented by Motovan

Frid’Eh Update #53 Presented by Motovan By Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford Here at Direct Motocross, days have 25 hours, weeks have 8 days, and years have 53 weeks…apparently. Bonus Week #53 belongs to the rider we got to know a few years ago when he won the Bronze Boot at the Parts Canada TransCan at Walton Raceway. To be honest, his winning it was a bit of a surprise,

Vincent raced all 6 of the eastern rounds of the

Yes, another year has come and gone in Canadian Motocross. It was a year that saw probably the deepest MX1 talent we’ve ever seen within our borders, so it was a thrill to have witnessed it.
