McThoughts | A2 – 450 Class | Strikt

McThoughts | A2 – 450 Class | Strikt By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford What a great 450 season so far. I am not a fan of the runaway races and guys winning over and over again. This season there are so many guys that can win, should win, and it really is a good time to be a fan. We have guys that can be fighting for a

McThoughts | A2 – 250 Class | Strikt

McThoughts | A2 – 250 Class | Strikt By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford This year’s 250 West class is kind of predictable. We know Colt Nichols will be fast and consistent. Shane McElrath will be the same, but maybe just a tad off the pace. Adam Cianciarulo will be damn near perfect one week, then full of mistakes the next, and Dylan Ferrandis will have unreal raw speed,

McThoughts | Glendale SX – 450

McThoughts | Glendale SX – 450 By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford In a very stacked class, most would not have called either of our first two winners. Last week it was Justin Barcia claiming his first win in many years, and this week it was the first win of what could be many for Blake Baggett. This win was no fluke or “gimme”. Blake earned it the old

McThoughts | Glendale SX – 250

McThoughts | Glendale SX – 250 By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford Saturday night was our first real chance to see who was fastest in the 250 Class. The track was pretty fast and was pretty technical due to its slippery, shiny conditions. The West seems to have 4 guys that will fight every weekend for the 3 podium spots. As of now, Adam Cianciarulo looks to be the

McThoughts | Anaheim 1 Supercross – 450 | Strikt

McThoughts | Anaheim 1 Supercross – 450 | Strikt By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford Once again, we headed into A1 with a very stacked 450 class. Anyone could win, but there are always a few favourites. Eli Tomac and his 17 SX wins and zero championships are at the top of the list. After Tomac there is a big list of very capable racers. The track wasn’t the

McThoughts | Anaheim 1 Supercross – 250 | Strikt Gear

McThoughts | Anaheim 1 Supercross – 250 | Strikt Gear By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford Going into a season opener, there are so many variables: new riders, new teams and bikes, and injuries. That’s what makes this so exciting. There are so many questions, as well. Who has put the work in, and who hasn’t? Going into 250 West action for 2019, there are many different guys who

McThoughts | A1 Predictions

McThoughts | A1 Predictions By Jeff McConkey Jeff McConkey puts on his thinking helmet and takes his first shot at some predictions for the 2019 Supercross season. It’s finally here…SX is back! Tomorrow night A1 will kick off the 2019 season with a very stacked 450 class, and like always an exciting 250 West line up. In the 450 class, there are defending champions, potential champions, expected champions, 250 champions,

McThoughts | Hamilton SX | 450 Main

McThoughts | Hamilton SX | 450 Main By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford   Going into Hamilton, most of the buzz for the 450 class was missing, due to the fact that Colton Facciotti would not be lining up. We all know what happened in Quebec City, so I will just stop here. Anyways, the racing was very good, and the crowd left happy. Cole Thompson, once again, used

McThoughts | Hamilton Supercross | 250 Main

McThoughts | Hamilton Supercross | 250 Main By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford The final Rockstar Triple Crown round of 2018 went off Saturday night in Hamilton, Ontario. The track had some really good dirt and was a little bit more technical than past rounds. Going into the 4th and final round, all eyes were on the #15 of Jess Pettis, as he had been the man in the

McThoughts | Montreal Supercross | 450 Class | Strikt

McThoughts | Montreal Supercross | 450 Class | Strikt By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave The Montreal Supercross is finally back. We haven’t been there since 2012, but we definitely made up for it this year. There was no lack of star power — Malcolm Stewart, Colt Nichols, Alex Martin, Josh Hill, and Josh Hansen to name just a few. Add in our Canadian stars and you have the recipe
