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.

A Few Photos from Wild Rose MX Park | Thursday By Billy Rainford Rigs were moving in this afternoon at Wild Rose MX Park in Calgary, Alberta, so I wandered over to see who and where I could “help.” It was hot and dry with a pretty hefty breeze as I wandered around the grounds.

Photo Report | Motopark Cup | Rounds 1-2 By Billy Rainford I hadn’t been to a local race in quite some time, so I was looking forward to catching the first round of the ever-popular New Era Moto Cup at Motopark in Chatsworth, Ontario.
