McThoughts | Sand Del Lee – 250 Class

McThoughts | Sand Del Lee – 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave Anything can and will happen this season in the 250 class. Jess Pettis has been the fastest, but he has had a few mechanicals. But don’t forget that Shawn Maffenbeier had 4 last year and still won the title. Speaking of Maffenbeier, he has been very good, very smart, and very consistent. Next, we have Dylan

McThoughts | Women’s East MX Nationals Round 1 By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford No, they are not sisters, cousins, or any relation at all, but it surely was “The Brodeur Show” in Ottawa this past Saturday. Megan, not Eve, got the holeshot and led wire to wire in moto 1. Eve was right there, but just couldn’t make the pass, allowing Megan to grab the win. The big

McThoughts | Calgary – Round 1 | 450 Class

McThoughts | Calgary – Round 1 | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave 450 Class This is the most stacked 450 class ever in Canada. We have 5-7 guys who could win a moto on any given Saturday. Sure, the talent falls off hard around 15, but who cares. The racing will be great all season long and you can count on multiple winners. The track in Calgary

McThoughts | Calgary – Round 1 | 250 Class

McThoughts | Calgary – Round 1 | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave 250 Class Going into Round 1, I honestly thought the 250 class might not be as exciting as the 450’s. Like always, I was wrong. There are quite a few top guys that can step up at any moment. I have said a few times that I think Jess Pettis will win here and there

McThoughts | Barrie Arenacross | Final Round | 450 Pro

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

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

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

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
