McThoughts | Arlington Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 450 Class We had some good racing, once again Saturday night. Unfortunately, we lost Ken Roczen the previous week, and Justin Barcia and Josh Grant this week to injuries. That really shakes up the points when you lose #2 and #3, but it is the perfect chance for some fresh faces to step up. Going into
McThoughts | Arlington Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 250 Class Saturday night was round 1 for the 250 East Coast riders. It was very clear that they were chomping at the bit to get going after watching their West Coast counterparts for 6 weeks straight. Everybody was fired up, and the action was pretty intense. One issue I had was the amount of attempted
McThoughts | Oakland Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 450 Class A very tacky and technical track almost ended the championship hopes for our points leader, Jason Anderson, early on in the day when he went over the bars very hard. Surprisingly, Anderson bounced back and claimed yet another victory in Oakland. As I mentioned, the track was very soft, and the transitions and even
McThoughts | Oakland Supercross | 250 West By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 250 Class We had some very good racing in the 250 class on Saturday night.

There were a few noticeable changes from years past. This year the biggest change was the addition of the 3-moto format, and racing starting Friday afternoon. I am a huge fan of both. I really like the 3-moto format, so each rider gets 3 chances to
Photo Report | A Day at the MMRS MX School | Husqvarna Canada By Jeff McConkey Photos by Don Carr This past Saturday, I was lucky enough to be involved in the annual MMRS Motocross School. This year’s one-day school had an incredible 110 students, and featured some first-time riders all of the way up to some of the most seasoned vet riders (and I mean that in the nicest
Tailgating with…Victoria Hett By Billy Rainford We sit down and chat with the Husqvarna Canada’s Marketing Specialist, Victoria Hett.
McThoughts | Oakland SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford The best 450 riders in the world looked pretty shaky at times on the tough Oakland track. Everyone but Eli Tomac. Eli was once again on a complete other level than the rest of the field. It’s almost like he didn’t realize that it was rutted and super sketchy. He caught and gapped Ryan Dungey after
McThoughts | Oakland SX | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford Oakland was a man’s track on Saturday night. The wet conditions made for very scary sections, and almost everyone had issues. You were taking off in ruts and somehow hoping to land in a rut. Once again, our points leader was forced into the LCQ, and once again he somehow turned that into a good start
