A Few Photos from Practice at Swiona MX By Billy Rainford I had the chance to head a little west of London to check out the TVR practice at Swiona MX in Iona Station on Saturday.

Photo Report – CMRC Season Opener at Gopher Dunes By Billy Rainford Photos by Tyler Spikman If you’re from the south, you just don’t understand how much this time of year means to us up here.

A Few Photos from Opening Weekend at Gopher Dunes By Billy Rainford Photos by Dawn McClintock After the winter we’ve suffered through here in Ontario, opening day at Gopher Dunes was a little later than normal. Truthfully, it was looking like it would be a struggle to have a snowless track for round 5 of the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals…in July! We spoke with Gopher Dunes’ Derek Schuster this morning
$2 Tuesday: 2012 Nanaimo National ‘CDN MX Weekly’ Wrap-Up Show By Billy Rainford Round 1 at the Wastelands in Nanaimo, BC was our first look at Matt Goerke on Canadian soil.
