ICYMI | Catching Up with Jason Benny

We didn’t see #24 Jason Benny this weekend at McNabb Valley MX in Minnedosa, MB, but we’ll be seeing the friendly Quebeccer soon. Jason will join the series at Gopher Dunes for Round 4 of the 2019 Rockstar Triple Crown MX Nationals and race the remainder of the season. We grabbed Jason for a talk to find out what he’s been up to since we saw him last. Direct Motocross:

ICYMI | Catching Up with #23 Wyatt Waddell

By Billy Rainford I’ve known Wyatt Waddell and his dad, Laurie Waddell, for quite a few years now. It’s safe to say you will not meet two nicer people in the racing world, anywhere. Respectful and always displaying love for the sport and the people in it are two ways I would describe how these guys represent themselves, always. It really sucked when Wyatt had to miss his first Pro year (and then some!)

ICYMI | Catching Up with #19 Dylan Wright

ICYMI | Catching Up with #19 Dylan Wright By Billy Rainford   Dylan Wright just wrapped up the 4-round Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Arenacross championship and now sets his sights on the rest of the 3-part tour. Dylan is the rider who we watched progress through the amateur ranks as one of the most eye-catching and flashy riders we’ve ever seen here in Canada. His scrubs and 2-stroke skills are

We hadn’t spoken with him in a few months, so it was nice to touch base with him. In fact, he’s such a

ICYMI | Catching Up with Topher Ingalls

ICYMI | Catching Up with Topher Ingalls By Billy Rainford Catching Up with our old friend Topher Ingalls from California. | Bigwave photo #13 is kind of controversial. I say controversial because it’s a number that most riders avoid like the plague. However, there are some characters in this sport who thrive on the unusual and unconventional. When I think of those two words, one rider pops into my mind,

Catching Up with Jake Piccolo

Catching Up with Jake Piccolo By Billy Rainford Jake Piccolo is the 16-year-old racer from Abbotsford, British Columbia, who has been burning up tracks since he first started riding. Some riders are just more exciting to watch, and Jake is definitely one of those. Unfortunately, he fell at a Loretta Lynn’s qualifier last spring at Horn Rapids in Washington State and the resulting ankle injury kept him away from racing

Catching Up with #36 Teren Gerber | KTM Canada

Catching Up with #36 Teren Gerber By Billy Rainford   When I pulled in to Club MX last week on the way north from my extended MX road trip in the southeast, I found 19-year-old Teren Gerber from Coronation, Alberta, putting in a winter of training at the growing and expanding facility outside Chesterfield, South Carolina. Club MX partners with us and our ‘Total Devotion Award‘ at the Walton TransCan

He is always quick to allow us to get in his face with an interview and he even does it with a smile. He’s become one of our favourite riders to
