Faces at the Races | RED BUUUDDD! By Billy Rainford Photos by Billy Rainford and Emily Nicholson With the break in the Canadian schedule still going, I decided DMX should make an appearance at at least one round of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship in the USA. And what better round to hit than the annual 4th of July party that is Red Bud. It was sunny, hot,
By Billy Rainford The New Era Motopark Cup series at Motopark in Chatsworth, Ontario, is a stand-alone series that has developed a very strong following with increased rider participation. The 4-round series wrapped up under perfect conditions this past Sunday at the famed track that has hosted the World MXGP. I didn’t make it over to the Pee Wee track where Kraig Reinhart was in charge of the racing. I

Without really being able to tell who was who or what was going on, I decided to just post a bunch of photos to give you an idea of just how bad the conditions were at McNabb Valley MX
By Billy Rainford OK, I’ll say it: I don’t mind a mud race, once in a while. I’m fine with having one of these crazy days to deal with per summer, but that’s it!

By Billy Rainford The women headed to the McNabb Valley MX track in Minnedosa, MB this past Saturday for Round 3 of their 4-round West MX Nationals.

We’ve got a long way to go, so let’s get started!
By Billy Rainford Photos by John Meaney Round 2 of the Women’s West MX Nationals took place at the Blackwater MX track in Prince George, BC this past Saturday. We knew the top 3 women were going to separate themselves from the rest, but we didn’t know which one would take the win on the up-and-down PG track. Here’s a look at the racing action. WMX
By Billy Rainford There are moments that define a rider’s career, like Marco Dubé pushing his dead bike across the finish line in Mission, BC so many years ago. Well, we may have just witnessed one of those moments with #19 Dylan Wright. The Blackwater MX track in Prince George, BC took its toll on quite a few riders Saturday at Round 2 of the Rockstar Triple Crown MX Nationals,
By Billy Rainford #3 Shawn Maffenbeier has been around for a long time in Professional Canadian Motocross, but this past Saturday at Round 2 of the 2019 Rockstar Energy Triple Crown MX Nationals was the first time he got himself onto the 450 MX podium. Shawn’s consistent 4-4 motos were enough to secure him the 3rd spot on the coveted podium and receive the coolest trophy of our racing season.
By Billy Rainford It’s time for our annual, unofficial ‘Whip Contest‘ from the International Jump at the Wild Rose MX Park track in Calgary, Alberta. We all look forward to snapping these shots with the Calgary skyline as a backdrop, and we do these unofficial contests every year.
