Extremity Games – Baja Acres

Extremity Games – Baja Acres By Billy Rainford It’s been too many years since I’d been to a race at Baja Acres in Millington, Michigan. So many, in fact, that it’s a little embarrassing. The last time I raced at my favourite sandy track was in 1987! The last time I was there was on my way back from living in BC back in 2007. So, it’s safe to say,

$2 Tuesday: 2011 Most Memorable

$2 Tuesday: 2011 Most Memorable By Billy Rainford I always enjoy rooting through my stash of old moto photos. This week, I bumped into a file called, “2011 Most Memorable.” That sounded pretty appropriate so in I went. It’s amazing the memories that are instantly return to the front of your mind that you hadn’t even thought of since the day they happened. Looking back at these reminded me that

$2 Tuesday: 2008 Blair Morgan Ride Day at Motopark

$2 Tuesday: 2008 Blair Morgan Ride Day at Motopark By Billy Rainford We all remember where we were when we learned of Blair Morgan‘s crash and subsequent paralysis. Blair fell in a seemingly innocent section of the track at the 2008 Montreal SX. I was at the race and couldn’t believe it had happened the way it did. When the news came out that he had suffered permanent spinal cord

Unsung: 2015 New Jersey SX

Unsung: 2015 New Jersey SX Photos and captions by Billy Rainford I thought I’d take a slightly different approach to this race and give the riders who made the mains but didn’t make the top 10 some coverage in a new column we’re going to call, ‘Unsung.’ Actually, in the future this column might feature those riders who showed up and gave it a shot but didn’t either make the

Faces at the Races: East Rutherford SX

Faces at the Races: East Rutherford SX Photos and captions by Billy Rainford In 2014, I had to choose between going to the inaugural Monster Energy AMA Supercross just over the bridge from NYC in East Rutherford, NJ or head down to the final round of Supercross in Las Vegas.
