ICYMI | Catching Up with Dylan Wright

ICYMI | Catching Up with Dylan Wright By Billy Rainford Dylan Wright has always been one of the most exciting riders to watch ride a dirt bike. He’s the rider you always knew was on the track, back in his 2-stroke days. You could hear him revving his bike to the moon without giving it a second’s rest. Watching Dylan get around the Sand Del Lee track on his 125 2-stroke is still

ICYMI | Catching Up with Morgan Burger

ICYMI | Catching Up with Morgan Burger By Billy Rainford I’ve known the Burger Family since they first started coming up to Canada to race a bunch of years ago. Morgan’s dad is a military man who runs a tight ship. But most importantly, that meant he always had the beer chilled to the correct temperature a the end of a long race day. Sure, it also meant Morgan’s bike

ICYMI | Catching Up with Casey Keast

ICYMI | Catching Up with Casey Keast By Billy Rainford In case you missed it, we caught up with 2020 #77 Casey Keast who, since this interview was done, has announced he will race the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Tour with the support of Carlson Racing, Husqvarna Canada, and Blackfoot Direct. Casey Keast is one of the fast riders out of British Columbia who we all had our eyes on

ICYMI | Catching Up with Tyler Medaglia

ICYMI | Catching Up with Tyler Medaglia By Billy Rainford Don’t forget to wish Tyler “Happy Birthday” today. Tyler Medaglia is the fun-loving, hard-working, race-anywhere rider who has the rare ability to balance the seriousness of Professional Sports with the light-heartedness of an every day racer. He’s the two-time Canadian 250 MX Champion who left the little bike class for many years before dropping back down for the 2019 Rockstar Triple

ICYMI | Catching Up with Matt Goerke

ICYMI | Catching Up with Matt Goerke By Billy Rainford Florida’s 3-time Canadian MX champion, Matt Goerke, headed into the 2019 season with high hopes of getting himself on the top step of the podium at the end of the long season, but battled one issue after another every step pf the way. Recently, he was hurt pretty badly at an off season German Supercross that left him with broken

ICYMI | Catching Up with Brad Nauditt

ICYMI | Catching Up with Brad Nauditt By Billy Rainford Brad Nauditt has been coming north from his home state of Washington to race our series for a bunch of years now. In fact, he’s one of the riders who we’ve affectionately adopted as one of our own; he’s half Canadian. He’s threatened to retire a few times, but doesn’t seem to be able to make the transition to “normal”

ICYMI | Catching Up with Quintin Robin

ICYMI | Catching Up with Quintin Robin By Billy Rainford I remember thinking how “factory” he looked when I saw him at the Calgary National a couple years ago in 2017. Quintin Robin is the rider who should have been running the #51 in 2019, but he wasn’t able to get out there and you’ll learn why. You always hate to hear these injury stories, but the instant we stop thinking

ICYMI | Catching Up with Jyire Mitchell

ICYMI | Catching Up with Jyire Mitchell By Billy Rainford Welcome to Week #50 of the DMX Frid’Eh Update this week presented by KTM Canada. Bermuda native Jyire Mitchell is a friendly and enthusiastic rider who will definitely find his way in the sport. We got to know him when he showed up at the Walton TransCan in 2018 and looked like he could beat all our series best. I just saw him at the Mini O’s at Gatorback

ICYMI | Catching Up with Marco Cannella

ICYMI | Catching Up with Marco Cannella By Billy Rainford Marco Cannella and his parents, Sally Cannella and Sam Cannella, have been familiar faces at the races since I first moved back to Ontario from Vancouver, BC. Doing what I do, I get to know most of the racers in our sport and their families. Like I’m always quick to point out, it’s easily my favourite part of my job and the Cannellas feel

ICYMI | Catching Up with Colton Facciotti

ICYMI | Catching Up with Colton Facciotti By Billy Rainford It’s not often (understatement of the year) we get to catch up with someone who has just broken JSR‘s long-standing record of 5 Canadian MX titles. Colton Facciotti is the rider who a lot of you reading this right now don’t even remember our sport without him as one of the top Pro riders! Seriously, he turned Pro at the tender age
