McThoughts | Oakland SX | 450 Class

McThoughts | Oakland SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford The best 450 riders in the world looked pretty shaky at times on the tough Oakland track. Everyone but Eli Tomac. Eli was once again on a complete other level than the rest of the field. It’s almost like he didn’t realize that it was rutted and super sketchy. He caught and gapped Ryan Dungey after

McThoughts | Oakland SX | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford Oakland was a man’s track on Saturday night. The wet conditions made for very scary sections, and almost everyone had issues. You were taking off in ruts and somehow hoping to land in a rut. Once again, our points leader was forced into the LCQ, and once again he somehow turned that into a good start

McThoughts | Phoenix SX | 450 Class | Presented by Shot Race Gear By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford Just when I thought we were about to see Ryan Dungey dominate the rest of the season, it happens again — Eli Tomac steps up and puts in an incredible ride and waxes the competition. That’s part of the reason why our sport is so good. Stuff like this can

McThoughts | Phoenix SX | 250 Class | Presented by Shot Race Gear By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford It wasn’t looking good for the red plate holder early on at Round 4 in Phoenix, Arizona. #38 Shane McElrath had been the picture of consistency. Back to back wins followed by a 3rd place in the first 3 rounds, and it looked like a run straight to the title

McThoughts | A2 | 450 Class | Presented by Leatt and MX101 By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave Saturday night in Anaheim still has everyone talking. First of all, I’d like to wish Ken Roczen a very speedy recovery. As we all know, Kenny had a very scary high speed get off which resulted in a very bad left arm injury. He wasn’t riding over his head or taking stupid

McThoughts | A2 Supercross Predictions

McThoughts | A2 Supercross Predictions By Jeff McConkey Hey, guys. We are two rounds in to the 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross season, and we’ve been treated to some great racing in both classes. In the 450 Premier Class, we have had the same 6 riders finishing in the top 6 positions, with only Eli Tomac and Cole Seely swapping places. Looking at it on paper, you’d think it was

McThoughts | San Diego SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave   Saturday night’s 450 main had 2 riders destroy the field. Usually, races like that are boring — not his one. We got to see the best 2 racers in the world go at it for 20 minutes plus one lap. That doesn’t normally happen, but I’m thinking this is going to be the routine for

McThoughts | Sand Diego SX | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Bigwave Round 2 of the 250 West Coast was pretty darn exciting. Most of the frontrunners have been up front and battling and that makes for good racing. Although #38¬†Shane McElrath has won the first 2 races, I don’t feel he’s really dominating or that he is the fastest. Not taking away from Shane, he’s doing everything

McThoughts | Anaheim 1 Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Anaheim 1 Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Round 1 of the 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series season kicked off this past Saturday in Anaheim, California. Leading into the weekend, the weather had been pretty wet, and I was worried that we would have a redo of “The Perfect Storm” season opener of 2005. Luckily, Mother Nature pumped the brakes and we were blessed with some

McThoughts | Anaheim 1 Supercross | 250 Class

McThoughts | Anaheim 1 Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey SX is back and we had some very good racing in the 250 West opener. I don’t think the West is as stacked as it normally is, but it should offer great racing all season. We had 5 riders going into the main event with prior 250 SX wins. I don’t think we will have one dominant winner, but
