McThoughts: San Diego 2 SX|250 West

McThoughts: San Diego 2 SX|250 West By Jeff McConkey After 6 rounds of Monster Energy 250 West Supercross, we actually have a very exciting championship battle brewing. Early on in the season, it was ‘The Cooper Webb Show.’ Cooper was so dominate, there was actually a lot of talk about a possible perfect season. Well, fast forward a few weeks and Cooper has lost his points lead to the always-improving

McThoughts – 450 SX Round 5|Phoenix

McThoughts – 450 SX Round 5|Phoenix By Jeff McConkey Round 5 of the premier class went off on Saturday night. Ken Roczen, who has been getting better and better each week, put an end to the Ryan Dungey winning streak. Like I always say, confidence in motocross is a very important part of the puzzle. Ken got a solid 2nd last week and a great start was all he needed

McThoughts – 250 West SX|Phoenix Round 5 By Jeff McConkey I’m back after a week away, and boy did I miss a lot. When I left, it looked like Cooper Webb was en-route to a perfect season – he was unstoppable. He could point his Yamaha in any direction at anytime, and it stuck. Fast forward a week…I arrive home and find out that not only the perfect season was

McThoughts: A2 450 SX

McThoughts: A2 450 SX By Jeff McConkey Round 3 wasn’t as exciting as the first 2 rounds, but it still gave us some solid racing. The track was pretty technical which led to a fair amount of carnage. Poor Trey Canard had a rough night and his status for next week and beyond is up in the air. With Canard’s exit, we can add his name to the list which

McThoughts: A2 250 SX

McThoughts: A2 250 SX By Jeff McConkey Round 3 of the 250 West went off at A2 on Saturday night. Cooper Webb has scored all 3 wins, but they have not been boring. He has had to make some very impressive passes along the way, and is truly the man of the class. Christian Craig continued to look good all day long, and finally put it together for the main

McThoughts: 450 SX – San Diego Round 2 By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford Round 2 of the 450 class lined up Saturday night in San Diego. The 450 class is extremely stacked this season, and top 10’s don’t come easy. Former champ #7 James Stewart gave it a go early in practice after receiving clearance to race. James took a very hard hit to the head last week,

McThoughts: 250 West – San Diego Round 2

McThoughts: 250 West – San Diego Round 2 By Jeff McConkey Round 2 of the West Coast 250 series went off on Saturday night. The moisture started coming out of the track in the main events and it got pretty slippery. Even in the slippery conditions, I was amazed how Cooper Webb could just point his Yamaha in any direction and the bike stuck. It was another great ride by

McThoughts: The Weston Peick/Vince Friese ‘Incident’

McThoughts: The Weston Peick/Vince Friese ‘Incident’ By Jeff McConkey By now, everyone has seen the Weston Peick/Vince Friese incident over and over again.  Before I get started, I would like to make it clear that I am not employed by MotoConcepts, and no I am not Vince Friese’s long lost cousin or anything like that. Vince has a history of questionable riding. Some call it dirty, and few just think
