McThoughts | Anaheim 2 | 250 Class

McThoughts | Anaheim 2 | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey This past Saturday, the first of 3 Triple Crown events were held at A2. I, myself, am 100% not a fan of the new format. I, personally, love the heat races and LCQ’s. Most “average fans” don’t show up until the night program. That means they will completely miss the majority of the racers. Yes, they will see the top

McThoughts | Monster Energy Supercross | Houston – 450 Class

McThoughts | Monster Energy Supercross | Houston – 450 Class By Jeff McConkey How about the story line in the 450 class?! First we have pre-season favourite, Eli Tomac, score 1 point at the opener. Fast forward to this week, and Eli was 10 seconds a lap off the pace. Next, came the announcement that he would be unable to compete in the night program. Instant game changer, and everyone

McThoughts | Monster Energy Supercross | Houston – 250 Class

McThoughts | Monster Energy Supercross | Houston – 250 Class By Jeff McConkey This season’s 250 West class has a lot of talent. If you don’t get a start, you can pretty much give up on any hope of a win. We haven’t had any super technical tracks yet, but Saturday night’s track rutted up, making it difficult for most. When I say most, I mean everybody except #23 Aaron

McThoughts | Monster Energy Supercross | A1 – 450 Class

McThoughts | Monster Energy Supercross | A1 – 450 Class By Jeff McConkey 450 Class Going into A1, most people were ready to just hand over the 2018 championship to Eli Tomac. With Ryan Dungey gone, the Tomac bandwagon was full. Well, good thing we run the races and just don’t go by thoughts or opinions. Tomac got the start and looked really good early on, but disaster struck and

McThoughts | Monster Energy Supercross | A1 – 250 Class

McThoughts | Monster Energy Supercross | A1 – 250 Class By Jeff McConkey The 250 West riders took to the track and gave us the first heat race and first main event of 2018. Like always, this season’s West class is pretty stacked — we have guys who have numerous wins under their belts. There wasn’t much of a battle for the lead at round 1, but that’s not going

McThoughts | 2018 Supercross Predictions

McThoughts | 2018 Supercross Predictions By Jeff McConkey 250 Class #1E Zach Osborne:  Zach should be able to defend, but he can’t have any hiccups. It looks like both coasts are strong and there won’t be any easy wins. #1W Justin Hill: Justin will be very good and confident, but I just don’t know if he has the bike to win the title on. #6 Jeremy Martin: Jeremy is going

McThoughts | Rockstar MX Nationals | RJ’s Round 10 | MX1

McThoughts | Rockstar MX Nationals | RJ’s Round 10 | MX1 By Jeff McConkey We went into the final round of the Championship with only 15 points between 1st and 2nd. After 19 motos, heading into the 20th and final moto the lead was down to 8. It was a great ending to a great season. We had multiple moto winners and overall winners in our most stacked 450 class

McThoughts | Rockstar MX Nationals | RJ’s Round 10 | MX2

McThoughts | Rockstar MX Nationals | RJ’s Round 10 | MX2 By Jeff McConkey Well, it was almost a nail-biter of a finish – at least going into the 2nd moto, anyway. Shawn Maffenbeier entered the final round up 11 points on 2nd place Ryan Surratt. Shawn did what was needed to secure his first National Championship, and unfortunately, Surratt crashed out of moto 2 injuring his leg. The final

McThoughts | Women’s East MX Nationals | RJ’s Round 4

McThoughts | Women’s East MX Nationals | RJ’s Round 4 By Jeff McConkey As quickly as the 2017 Women’s East season has come, it has left us just as fast. We had great racing for the first 3 rounds, and the 4th was no different. Once again, our top 2 girls were on another level and set the bar really high. We had some good battles throughout the pack which

The two went at it both motos in Dechambault. They looked close in speed, but neither could come close
