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.

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

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.

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 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

McThoughts | Houston SX | 250 West By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave This past Saturday night was the last Triple Crown format of the season. The 250 West racers got their chance to race their 3 main events. The racing has been very good in the 250 West.

McThoughts | Seattle SX – 450 Class

McThoughts | Seattle SX – 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave This year’s 450 class has been super exciting. There are honestly 5 guys that can win, maybe 6. It makes it fun to watch when it isn’t just one guy dominating week after week. Marvin Musquin has been hot lately. He got out front early and made it happen. Unfortunately for Marv, he jumped on a red

McThoughts | Seattle SX – 250 West

McThoughts | Seattle SX – 250 West By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave Saturday night in Seattle was once again some very good racing. The two fastest in the class went at it with Dylan Ferrandis edging out Adam Cianciarulo. They gapped the field and are clearly on another level. Other riders are riding well, but to be honest, they aren’t in the same conversation. For the rest of the
