ICYMI | Catching Up with Ryder McNabb | Fox Racing Canada By Billy Rainford In case you missed it, we caught up with #18 Ryder Mcnabb. Ryder McNabb is the young Manitoba rider who makes his move to the Pro ranks official for 2021. It was easy to forget he was an Intermediate last season because of his graphics kit, but he was only 14 and a yellow-plater at heart
ICYMI | Catching Up with Cheyenne Harmon | Yamaha Motor Canada By Billy Rainford One of my favourite parts of the job is meeting riders and families involved in our sport. But nothing beats finding out a rider has risked everything and made the trip to Canada on his or her own to roll the dice and race our series. We’ve seen it a few times over the years, and
ICYMI | Catching Up with Cole Thompson | Presented by Gas Gas Canada By Billy Rainford #16 Cole Thompson is from Brigden, Ontario. When I first moved back to Ontario from Vancouver back in 2007, Cole and his family were the ones I saw the most. I was driving the 1989 Buick Electra Estate Wagon then and it was, more often than not, parked in the Thompson’s pits from Florida to
ICYMI | Catching Up with Jess Pettis | Presented by KTM Canada By Billy Rainford Career #15 Jess Pettis is currently working hard with his rehab after successful ACL surgery. He popped it at Walton Raceway last summer and raced the rest of the season without it, winning the 250 Canadian Triple Crown Series MX title. He was set to race the 250 East Supercross series and spent a couple
ICYMI | Catching Up with Ryan Dowd | Presented by Race Tech By Billy Rainford Ryan Dowd is the rider who holds the #14 for the 2021 season. We didn’t see him in 2020 due to the COVID-19 border situation and because of the fact he went in a different direction last year, and we’ll talk to him about that. Last time we saw Ryan, the 2019 season, he was #46.
We Caught Up with Casey Keast after Arlington SX #2 By Billy Rainford #300 Casey Keast from Kelowna, BC just raced his second-ever Monster Energy AMA Supercross at Arlington #2 at AT&T Stadium in Texas. He qualified 37th again, was 18th in Heat #2, and then 15th in the LCQ. They’ve been pitting out of a U-Haul box van and trailer but now have their Carlson Racing MX truck and
ICYMI | Catching Up with Keylan Meston By Billy Rainford In case you missed it, we caught up with #10 Keylan Meston this past Friday. Keylan Meston is the rider who holds onto the career #10. Keylan is the hard-working, fun-loving rider we’ve all gotten to know pretty well over his Pro racing career. He’s always easy to talk to and provides us with some of our favourite interviews around here.
Catching Up with Jake Piccolo | KTM Canada By Billy Rainford Jake Piccolo is the BC rider who’s been on everyone’s radar since he was on little bikes. He’s got blazing speed and is one of the most entertaining riders to watch whenever he’s on the track. He’s signed on with Al Dyck and the gang over at Sky Racing and he’s down at Club MX getting all the pre-season
Catching Up with Sebastien Racine By Billy Rainford There are always a few riders we keep a close watch on as they maneuver their way up through the amateur ranks, and Sebastien Racine from Casselman, Ontario, is certainly one of them, right now. KTM Canada and the Orange Brigade are bringing him up toward his inevitable date with the Pro class. They’re being careful not to rush him through the
