Walton National Prep Day | Photos

Walton National Prep Day | Photos Photos and Words by Billy Rainford If you have to ask me how it felt to be at a track watching riders rip up Walton Raceway as if it were prepped for a Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Tour MX National you haven’t been paying attention.

Photo Report | 2016 MXON | Maggiora Italy By Billy Rainford Photos by James Lissimore Wow! That’s pretty much all you can say after being at a MXON in Europe. I woke up in a cold sweat last night having nightmares of bladeless chainsaws revving out at 12000rpms, and megaphones, and horns, and anything you could modify to make an already loud machine even louder.
