Thoughts | Minnedosa MX National | 450 Class

By Billy Rainford #1 Colton Facciotti came in with the red plate and leaves with a bigger lead in the points. #2 Matt Goerke came in with a finger broken in 2 places and only rode 2 laps in first qualifying. Check out this gutsy ride from the Floridian. It rained steadily overnight and into the morning. The track looked like it could handle what we were getting through first

Thoughts | Minnedosa MX National | 250 Class

By Billy Rainford Round 3 of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown MX Nationals headed back to McNabb Valley MX in Minnedosa, Manitoba, but the weather didn’t cooperate with us. The first motos were run, but then it was decided to cancel the 2nd motos due to the condition of the track after the rain just wouldn’t let up. Here are my Thoughts on the one 250 moto that was run.

McThoughts (Bigwave) | Prince George MX National | 450 Class

By Billy Rainford Photos by John Meaney We headed into the middle of BC for round 2 of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown MX Nationals at the Blackwater MX track. The weather was perfect for racing and the track got as rough as can be expected from a Pro National. Cole Thompson came in with the red plate but left without it, after the track bit him with a derailed

McThoughts (Bigwave) | Prince George National | 250 Class

By Billy Rainford Photos by John Meaney I’m going to step in and give Jeff McConkey‘s ‘McThoughts‘ column a shot this week. Jeff will step back in when we get to Ontario for the eastern swing. Week 2 of the 2019 Rockstar Energy Triple Crown MX Nationals was one full of surprises and stories. It seemed like people either had great days or rode the struggle bus. The Blackwater MX

McThoughts | Barrie Arenacross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Barrie Arenacross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford We have the most talent ever in a Canadian series in this seasons 450 class. There aren’t going to be any nights off or easy motos, and every single point is going to count right up until the end. Saturday night in Barrie, it was time for Matt Goerke to shine. Matt has been riding well

McThoughts | Barrie Arenacross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave Saturday night was the final round for the Arenacross portion of our Rockstar Triple Crown series. Although we are missing quite a few top notch riders, the guys we do have put on a great show. The racing was clean and exciting with Tyler Medaglia taking the final win for Arenacross. It wasn’t easy for Tyler as

McThoughts | East Rutherford SX | 450 Class

McThoughts | East Rutherford SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford I always say that you win championships with your bad races. Cooper Webb is the perfect example of that. Going into the 2nd last round in East Rutherford, Cooper was off. He was sick and just not on his A game. The goal was top 5 and try to salvage as many points as possible

McThoughts | East Rutherford SX

McThoughts | East Rutherford SX By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 250 East Heartbreak for one rider and team, and joy and excitement for another. Motocross and Supercross can bring you the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows. Just ask Austin Forkner and Chase Sexton. Austin was having the best season of his pro career. He had won 5 races, and was the highest placing East racer

McThoughts | Denver SX – 450 Class | Presented by Shoei

McThoughts | Denver SX – 450 Class | Presented by Shoei By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave As some would say, it’s crunch time in the 450 class. Going into Denver, there were only 3 chances to beat points leader Cooper Webb. Hometown hero Eli Tomac made it happen, but unfortunately for Eli, Cooper Webb finishes 2nd. Webb has been solid even on his bad nights, and nobody else can

McThoughts | Denver SX – 250 West | Presented by Shoei

McThoughts | Denver SX – 250 West | Presented by Shoei By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave The SX season is winding down. Every single point counts. Some riders are still 100% focused on SX, others have switched to outdoor mode. Realistically, only Adam Cianciarulo and Dylan Ferrandis are in this title hunt. Nobody can match their speed straight up, and, honestly, the only guy that has a legit shot
