McThoughts | Barrie Arenacross | Final Round | 450 Pro By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 1st Cole Thompson: Davi Millsaps raced our series a few years ago, and wherever Davi pointed his KTM, it went. He could cut down anywhere, anytime. Well, Cole and his KTM are doing the exact same thing. The track was nasty at times, but Cole was in complete control of the bike and

McThoughts | Barrie Arenacross | Final Round | 250 Pro By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 1st Jess Pettis: Jess came in fresh off of a very successful Seattle SX. He attacked the track from the very first practice, Friday, and didn’t let up until the checkered flag Saturday night. He was fast, aggressive and very confident. On a very tacky/rutted technical track, Jess still managed to have some

McThoughts | St. Louis Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | St. Louis Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford The 450 class this season has been riddled with injuries, so far. Add in top riders like Eli Tomac and Marvin Musquin making rookie mistakes here and there, and then you have guys like Jason Anderson being super-consistent, and, well, it gives you some results you just weren’t expecting. Anderson has been fast and fit,

McThoughts | St. Louis Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford The 250 East class took to the track Saturday night in St. Louis and the racing was, once again, very good. It’s a good sign that our sport is in good hands when we have this many guys out hurt, and the racing is still exciting. Not to disrespect the others, but we are seeing

McThoughts | Daytona Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Daytona Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave 450 Class Jason Anderson entered Daytona with a huge points lead. His night started rough, going down in his heat, and things got worse during the main. At one point, it looked like his points lead was almost gone, but a bit of luck for Anderson, and bad luck for Marvin Musquin, helped Anderson leave with a

McThoughts | Daytona Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave 250 Class All it took was some Daytona sand and we now have a 3-way battle for the 250 East Championship. Zach Osborne is our defending champion and for good reason. He has put his time in, he works hard, and he has all of the tools. Last season, Zach joined the powerhouse Baker’s Factory training program

McThoughts | Atlanta Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Atlanta Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave Better late than never… 450 Class You know a track is challenging when the top guys hit the dirt this much. The ruts, combined with some tricky rhythms and some nasty whoops made it very interesting for all. Once again we had some top guys go down, and lets hope we don’t lose anymore to injury. We

McThoughts | Atlanta Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Better late than never… 250 Class   Atlanta is always one of my favourite races of the year. I love the crowd, love the dirt, and how can you not love the new stadium? Like I have stated too much, I’m really not a fan of the Triple Crown. I was impressed with the quality of the racing in all

McThoughts | Monster Energy Supercross | Tampa | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford How about the 450 class?! Even though we have lost more top guys to injury, the racing is still really good. This week’s main event was pretty exciting and you, honestly, couldn’t tell who was going to win. Eli Tomac was good, Marvin Musquin looked good, Jason Anderson looked solid, and Justin Hill

McThoughts | Monster Energy Supercross | Tampa | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford Round 2 of the 250 East Supercross Series was this past Saturday night in Tampa, Florida. Thankfully, most of the riders calmed down after a hectic round 1. They seemed to forget how to pass guys and proceeded to try and ride through them instead. So, it was nice to see some cleaner
