The Story Behind the Photo | 1982 Kevin B By Billy Rainford No, he never went on to motocross greatness. In fact, I don’t think he ever lined up on a gate more than a handful of times at Hully Gully Houseleague. However, Kevin B was the first person I met when my family moved to London, Ontario, wayyy back in the day, and he was my friend. This ‘Story
The Story Behind the Photo | 1985 Hully Gully Newsletter By Billy Rainford Besides good looks, charm, and a dashing personalty, motocrossers all share another more unfortunate thing in common – we’ve all pretty much missed one season’s racing due to injury. It’s a sad but very real part of the sport we’ve all chosen. I’m not even sure why my name pops up in this little Hully Gully Newsletter
Teddy Maier Sums Up s Great Race Day in Canada |Atlas Brace By Billy Rainford We do a column called “The Story Behind the Photo” here on DMX. Sometimes there are very long and interesting stories behind what was happening in the particular shot, while other times there are not. I stumbled across a few cool shots of Teddy Maier from the 2013 Canadian MX National at Castrol Raceway in
The Story Behind the Photo | Ryan Lockhart 2008 | 100% By Billy Rainford We posted this above photo of Ryan Lockhart at the 2008 Canadian MX National at Sand Del Lee just outside Ottawa, Ontario, and it brought back some memories for Ryan. We asked him if he’d be willing to give us The Story Behind the Photo and he said that it was more about the 2008 season
The Story Behind the Photo | Ryan Lockhart | Sand Del Lee 2008 By Billy Rainford When we posted a photo of #22 Kyle Beaton on Instagram winning the 2008 CMRC Motocross National at Sand Del Lee, it prompted a comment from fellow competitor, #9 Ryan Lockhart. Ryan alluded to a story he says he tells “10-12 times a year,” so we had to get to the bottom of it.
The Story Behind the Photo: Jeff McConkey|Walton 2009 By Billy Rainford Some of you may only know Jeff McConkey as the guy who gives you his ‘McThoughts’ each week after the Supercross events, but he’s seen this sport from all sides. Back in 2009, he got the opportunity to help South African rider, Kerim Fitz-Gerald. (It was also the year I slept in a 1989 Buick Electra Estate Wagon and
The Story Behind the Photo – Nathan Bles|Ulverton 2015 By Billy Rainford Ontario Pro rider Nathan Bles suffered a badly broken arm while practicing at Gopher Dunes just one week before the 2015 Rockstar Energy MX Nationals were set to begin last spring. It forced him to miss the majority of the racing season. In fact, it probably should have taken him out of the entire summer, but Nathan is
The Story Behind the Photo: #27 Nick Wey|2015 Detroit SX By Billy Rainford When rumours started circulating that Michigan native #27 Nick Wey was considering retiring from touring the professional circuit last winter, I knew the 2015 Detroit SX was a big deal. I spent most of the morning trying to capture a shot that would sum it all up – that’s not always easy! He may have seen me
The Story Behind the Photo: Tyler Medaglia | Gopher Dunes Spring 2015 By Billy Rainford Sometimes, as a photographer, you do more than take a photo. Sometimes, you capture a moment. You usually don’t know it’s happening until much later. Sure, you always hope you are, but it’s rare (at least for me) to get home and go through your photos to find one or, if you’re lucky, a few
