McThoughts | St Louis SX | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey The 250 East lined up for the last time before their short mid-season break. So far this season, we have had 4 different winners, and to be honest… nothing is set in stone. Joey Savatgy won the open and it looked like he was the man to beat. Then Zach Osborne stepped up and looked unbeatable. Zach had some

McThoughts | Detroit SX | 450 Class

McThoughts | Detroit SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey After Ken Roczen left the series due to injury, it really looked like it was going to be ‘The Ryan Dungey Show.’ He had a huge points lead and was getting the starts like always. Fast forward a few rounds, and Dungey isn’t getting the starts and it has been ‘The Eli Tomac Show’ as of late. Yes, Dungey still

McThoughts | Detroit SX | 250 Class

McThoughts | Detroit SX | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey The 250 East has been very good so far this season. But Detroit, well, that was just a plain old Barn Burner. What a race! The only thing I think I could complain about would have to be how the 250 riders don’t always pass clean. It looks like they always want a little contact or that they wouldn’t be

McThoughts | Indianapolis SX | 450 Class

McThoughts | Indianapolis SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey The 450 class got a whole lot more interesting this past week in Indy. Not only did Eli Tomac win again and cut away at Ryan Dungey‘s points lead, Marvin Musquin also passed Ryan straight up and helped Tomac get closer to Dungey. The top guys are so close in speed, it’s weird to see Tomac be so dominant of

McThoughts | Indianapolis SX | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey After Daytona, the 250 East looked like it was closing up. After Indy, it looks more and more clear that Zach OsborneĀ is in complete control, and it’s his title to lose. Adam Cianciarulo came in all fired up, but it was quickly doused. I also believe with Joey Savatgy getting the lead and riding well only to have Osborne pass

McThoughts | Daytona Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Daytona Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford Ricky Carmichael always used to say, “the season doesn’t startĀ until Daytona.” Well, we are at Daytona and the championship race has really tightened up. Ryan Dungey only leads by 17 points, and it is now Eli Tomac in 2nd not Marvin Musquin. The track was fast, rough, but hard to pass on. There was a bunch

McThoughts | Daytona SX | 250 Class

McThoughts | Daytona SX | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey The 250 East headed south to Daytona. This year’s track was long, fast and got pretty rough. They added a lot of sand and it made it tough on most. It has got to be hard racing under the lights with the colours of the soil changing in what seemed like every new section. Points leader, Zach Osborne, made it

McThoughts | Toronto Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Toronto Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Toronto was the 9th Round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series. The track was soft and tricky, but it made for decent racing. The only bad thing was that Eli Tomac got a good start and took off. Pretty good racing behind him, but he almost made it boring. We are now down to just a 24-point difference between

McThoughts | Toronto Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey The 250 East headed to Toronto and put on a show all night long. The heat races had you on the edge of your seat and the main event was just as good. Zach Osborne has a pretty solid 12-point lead and looks to be in control. The East has many potential winners, but it also has many riders making

McThoughts | Atlanta SX | 450 Class

McThoughts | Atlanta SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey The last ever Supercross race in the Georgia Dome was pretty decent. It wasn’t a great battle for the lead, but Eli Tomac‘s ride had many thinking he would catch the leader. There was also some good racing all through the pack. The sand section made things interesting, and actually seemed to be sticking to everything. Ryan Dungey heads North
