Photo Report: Rockstar MX Nationals|Kamloops Round 1 By Billy Rainford The big day has finally come and gone. Round 1 of the highly-anticipated 2016 Rockstar Energy Drink MX Nationals came in like a lion and left like a…well, let’s just say it left like something that had been set out in the hot, hot sun all day and left for dead. They actually set heat records here in the North

Photo Report: Women’s West Nationals|Kamloops Round 1 By Billy Rainford The Women’s West Nationals kicked off a busy weekend here in Kamloops, BC. Last year’s champion, #1W Sara King, was back to defend her 2015 title, but it was not going to be easy. Women’s Motocross has been invaded by fast off-road riders! The addition of returning competitor #50 Shelby Turner and Endurocross star #151 Lexi Pechout is going to

$2 Tuesday: Dylan Wright|125 2-Stroke Love at Sand Del Lee By Billy Rainford This video goes back a couple years to when Richmond, Ontario, rider, #539 Dylan Wright was a blazingly fast Intermediate.

Faces at the Races|New Jersey SX

Faces at the Races|New Jersey SX Photos and Captions by Billy Rainford I had a lot of fun posting ‘Faces’ last week, so I wanted to get to it right away this week after round 16 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Monday Morning Coffee

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning! I barely have time to get this one in under the wire (Eastern Time, anyway) but I just love this logo that Dawn McClintock designed so much that I can’t skip the column. You ever have one of those mornings when you don’t remember shutting off your alarm? Well, I just had one. The problem is that I had a dentist
