McThoughts | Indianapolis SX | 450 Class

McThoughts | Indianapolis SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey The 450 class got a whole lot more interesting this past week in Indy. Not only did Eli Tomac win again and cut away at Ryan Dungey‘s points lead, Marvin Musquin also passed Ryan straight up and helped Tomac get closer to Dungey. The top guys are so close in speed, it’s weird to see Tomac be so dominant of

McThoughts | Indianapolis SX | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey After Daytona, the 250 East looked like it was closing up. After Indy, it looks more and more clear that Zach Osborne is in complete control, and it’s his title to lose. Adam Cianciarulo came in all fired up, but it was quickly doused. I also believe with Joey Savatgy getting the lead and riding well only to have Osborne pass

Ryan Dungey only leads by 17 points, and it is now Eli Tomac in 2nd not Marvin Musquin. The track was fast, rough, but hard to pass on. There was a bunch

McThoughts | Daytona SX | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey The 250 East headed south to Daytona. This year’s track was long, fast and got pretty rough. They added a lot of sand and it made it tough on most. It has got to be hard racing under the lights with the colours of the soil changing in what seemed like every new section. Points leader, Zach Osborne, made it

McThoughts | Toronto Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Toronto Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Toronto was the 9th Round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series. The track was soft and tricky, but it made for decent racing. The only bad thing was that Eli Tomac got a good start and took off. Pretty good racing behind him, but he almost made it boring. We are now down to just a 24-point difference between

McThoughts | Toronto Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey The 250 East headed to Toronto and put on a show all night long. The heat races had you on the edge of your seat and the main event was just as good. Zach Osborne has a pretty solid 12-point lead and looks to be in control. The East has many potential winners, but it also has many riders making

McThoughts | Atlanta SX | 450 Class

McThoughts | Atlanta SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey The last ever Supercross race in the Georgia Dome was pretty decent. It wasn’t a great battle for the lead, but Eli Tomac‘s ride had many thinking he would catch the leader. There was also some good racing all through the pack. The sand section made things interesting, and actually seemed to be sticking to everything. Ryan Dungey heads North

McThoughts | Atlanta Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Round 2 of the East Coast 250 went off in the Georgia Dome. Usually, the red Georgia clay ruts up quite a bit more, but I think due to the Arenacross race Friday night, the dirt was packed down like a West Coast track. The whoops were big and ended up forcing the 250 guys to jump through instead of

McThoughts | Minneapolis SX | 450 Class

McThoughts | Minneapolis SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Round 7 of the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross season went off Saturday in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It wasn’t the best track of the year, but the racing was still pretty good. Eli Tomac, once again, found the groove and picked up another win. After Eli, it was pretty much the regular players. Nobody different has really had that breakthrough ride yet

McThoughts | Minneapolis SX | 250 East

McThoughts | Minneapolis SX | 250 East By Jeff McConkey In past seasons in the 250 regional SX series, the West has been a little bit stronger than the East. 2017 is the year of the East. I feel it is much stronger and will give us great racing all season long. The track at the East opener was pretty narrow, and didn’t make for the best racing, but I was
