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

McThoughts | Arlington Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Arlington Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 450 Class We had some good racing, once again Saturday night. Unfortunately, we lost Ken Roczen the previous week, and Justin Barcia and Josh Grant this week to injuries. That really shakes up the points when you lose #2 and #3, but it is the perfect chance for some fresh faces to step up. Going into

McThoughts | Arlington Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 250 Class Saturday night was round 1 for the 250 East Coast riders. It was very clear that they were chomping at the bit to get going after watching their West Coast counterparts for 6 weeks straight. Everybody was fired up, and the action was pretty intense. One issue I had was the amount of attempted

McThoughts | 250 East Supercross Preview By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 250 East This year’s 250 East class is looking pretty strong on paper. We have a defending champion, a few vets, and a bunch of guys ready to take the next step. There are 5 guys who have won main events (yes, I’m including Blake Wharton), and there are quite a few that have a very good

McThoughts | San Diego Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 450 class The 450 class has been full of injuries so far this season. We have had stars like Eli Tomac, Marvin Musquin, Jake Weimer, and Justin Bogle pull off or miss action due to injuries. Well, it just got a little bit worse. We lost Weimer and Bogle once again to injury, and most

McThoughts | San Diego Supercross | 250 Class

McThoughts | San Diego Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 250 Class This past weekend in San Diego we had a slower, jumpier track. It was technical and it had different options, and it made for good racing. The top guys were, once again, near the front for the most part and the title chase got a little bit tighter with points leader Aaron Plessinger

McThoughts | Oakland Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Oakland Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 450 Class A very tacky and technical track almost ended the championship hopes for our points leader, Jason Anderson, early on in the day when he went over the bars very hard. Surprisingly, Anderson bounced back and claimed yet another victory in Oakland. As I mentioned, the track was very soft, and the transitions and even
