ICYMI | Catching Up with Kaven Benoit

ICYMI | Catching Up with Kaven Benoit By Billy Rainford Kaven Benoit retired from full-time Professional Motocross last season, but it hasn’t seemed to slow down his competitiveness. He just raced the Challenge Quebec Provincial at his home track in Bon Conseil and it sounds like he had everyone covered speed-wise except Josh Cartwright in the 450 Pro class. Kaven did, however, take the overall in the class with 2-1

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.

Rick is one of the good guys in the sport and has
