Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good morning from Calgary, Alberta. If you missed this day of racing yesterday, you missed a lot. Things got shaken up at the Rockstar MX Nationals at Wild Rose MX Park! I’ve been coming to this race for quite a few years now, and this is one of the only times we actually remembered that the day starts 1 hour late due to the

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford As I sit here in Prince George this morning looking out the window of our hotel room, I have to ask myself how many times this happens: You wake up for work or school on Monday and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. How can this happen so often?! Remember all those motocross road trips ruined by the weather and then it turns

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford The time for guessing and speculating is done. We have an answer: Christophe Pourcel could win this thing. No, it shouldn’t surprise anyone – he’s the 2006 World Champion and a 2-time East 250 Supercross champion. He’s got, probably, the best credentials we’ve ever seen in Canada to race our series. But let’s start with the MX2 class. #12 Shawn Maffenbeier won Kamloops in

It seems like forever, but we’ll finally be back at it this weekend at Whispering Pines in Kamloops, BC. My plan was to actually already be on the road today, but I have

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Happy Victoria Day Monday. We didn’t get the weather we were hoping for here in Southwestern Ontario. In fact, I was up on the roof again laying bricks on top of the blue tarp that was needed to keep the water from entering our kitchen through the skylight. Temporary fix, yes, but it was all I could do! The sun has finally come out

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Welcome to yet another Monday Morning. Is it just me or are there way more Mondays in the week than, say, Saturdays?! Funny how that works. However, coffee on a Monday morning tastes great, especially if it means you’ve managed to hide from what you’re supposed to be doing right now. Enjoy!

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good morning and welcome to another new week. If you’re reading this from anywhere in the mid-to-eastern part of the country, you’re pretty happy to see the sun this morning. What is going on with all the rain, so far this spring?! It has been coming down in biblical proportions lately. According to my iPhone weather app, we have made it through the bleakness

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford “The silicone chip inside her head gets switched to overload…” Yep, as I sit here typing, the rain continues to fall in my neck of the Canadian woods. Southwestern Ontario is getting bombarded with spring rain lately. I realize it’s supposed to be wet at this time of year, but this seems to be a little excessive! In fact, Motopark actually had to cancel their Amateur

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Welcome to the start of another week. With the weather finally deciding to cooperate, I decided it was time to whip myself into cycling shape for another great summer of riding in almost every province on the Scott bikes again this year. Like I say to myself every year at around this time, “The stationary bike must be doing something, but there’s nothing like
