Throwback Thursday: The Class of 2009 Flashback Photo Report By Billy Rainford If you’re ever looking for the next great North American motocross rider, you can usually head to the nearest big American Amateur National to find them.

$2 Tuesday: Kyle Catches Up with Darcy Lange While we were out in BC last year, Kyle Carruthers took the opportunity to grab one of Canada’s all-time best indoor riders for a quick chat.

A Few Photos from Opening Weekend at Gopher Dunes

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

Photo Report: 2015 Detroit SX Photos and captions by Billy Rainford With live television coverage these days, it’s hard to come up with a ‘race report’ that won’t be more of the same.

$2 Tuesday: 2012 Toronto SX Canadian Content

$2 Tuesday: 2012 Toronto SX Canadian Content Photos and captions by Billy Rainford Since this week was usually the Toronto SX weekend, I thought we’d go back and have a look at the 2012 edition with a little Canadian Content spin. Of course, I’m sure you all remember this was TO SX week because of my birthday, but… With rumours circulating that the site will be back on the schedule

Faces at the Races: 2015 Detroit SX

Faces at the Races: 2015 Detroit SX Photos and captions by Billy Rainford It reminds me a lot of that Simpsons episode where Homer is afraid of New York City. For some reason, people still freak out a little at the prospect of heading into Detroit, Michigan. There’s really no reason to be nervous…there’s nothing there! Well, that was true a few years ago. The city looks to be undergoing

Ricky Carmichael Amateur SX – Photo Report

Ricky Carmichael Amateur SX – Photo Report Photos and captions by Billy Rainford The Ricky Carmichael Amateur SX (RCSX) has grown over the last few years, to say the least.

A Few Photos from Club MX Today

A Few Photos from Club MX Today Photos and captions by Billy Rainford As this crazy two-week moto tour comes closer to an end, I find myself at the beautiful motocross facility called Club MX in Chesterfield, South Carolina. If you’re wondering if it’s that one you passed on your way somewhere…forget about it. Club MX is nestled in a part of Gamecock State that rarely sees interstate traffic. I
