Women’s West MX Nationals | 2018 Preview

Women’s West MX Nationals | 2018 Preview By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford It’s that time again. The Women’s West MX Nationals kick off this Saturday morning. Yes, the ladies are back on the same day as the men, but not without a ton of bitching, good and bad. Some are happy, some are mad, and some just love drama. Going into the season, we, unfortunately, are going to

Photo Report | Jeff Hits an SCRC Race in Oxbow, Saskatchewan By Jeff McConkey Photos by Kate Lees This past weekend, I was fortunate to receive an offer to travel West to Saskatchewan to take part in the SCRC Series (South Corner Racing Series).

McThoughts | Arlington Supercross | 450 Class

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.

McThoughts | Oakland Supercross | 450 Class

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.

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. The track was very technical due to the soft rutted conditions, and made some of these top level riders look like beginners. For the most part, we had the top guys up front and battling, which kept it exciting. Shane McElrath

Photo Report | AMO/MMRS Madoc National

Photo Report | AMO/MMRS Madoc National By Jeff McConkey Photos by Randy Wiebe This year’s annual AMO/MMRS Madoc National went off this past weekend. 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
