McThoughts: 250 East Round 1 – Atlanta

McThoughts: 250 East Round 1 – Atlanta By Jeff McConkey Round 1 of the 2016 250 East Coast SX series went off on Saturday night in Atlanta, Georgia. The track looked good, but I was honestly expecting bigger whoops. I feel the East may be a little bit more stacked this season compared to the West. Top 10’s aren’t going to be easy with all of this talent. Let’s take

McThoughts: Dallas SX – 450 Class

McThoughts: Dallas SX – 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Wow, what a 450 race! The entire 20-lap battle was impressive, but how about those first 2 laps. Ken Roczen and Ryan Dungey absolutely sent it, going back and forth, and it was something to see. The pair basically rode 20 near perfect laps and smoked the rest of the pack. The dirt in Dallas was very slippery and didn’t offer

McThoughts: Dallas SX – 250 West

McThoughts: Dallas SX – 250 West By Jeff McConkey The final 250 West round before the annual East Coast break went off this past Saturday. Going in, Pro Circuit’s Joey Savatgy had a slim 3-point lead over Cooper Webb. In the main, all the 3 race winners from 2016 were all up front ready to put on a great race. Disaster struck red plate holder Savatgy when the leader Christian

McThoughts: San Diego 2 SX | 450 Class

McThoughts: San Diego 2 SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Six rounds down and the racing has been very solid every week. Yes, it is pretty much a given that Ryan Dungey will always be on the podium, but there are some really good battles going on throughout the pack. The class is so stacked, we have some serious heavy hitters outside of the top 10 every week. We

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

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
