Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Sometimes, I wake up on Monday and nothing has really happened over the weekend that I can think of to write about, and that’s when I’m most dangerous! No, but seriously, we are in what is now a pretty short shoulder season here in Canada. Where we used to sit idle from mid-August to early June, we now race 9 months of the year! What a change

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning. I hope your coffee is hot and your your work week short! If you’re a student, this is one of the best times of year. I always remember the feeling of the final few weeks of classes before the Christmas/Holiday break. Maybe you’re heading south for some riding or just hanging out at home with family and friends. Either way, it’s a fun time

By Billy Rainford Strike 3 on the attempt at finding wifi this morning….no, wait, I’ve been given some information that would have helped me 15 minutes ago! The connection was too slow at the McDonalds I wasted my time in, and ate their breakfast. Then, as I was halfway between Gainesville and Tallahassee, I figured I’d pull into a Denny’s and sit with a coffee and write…Monday Coffee — seemed

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford As tends to happen from time to time, I’m trying to work my way south to the races and am pulled over to grab a coffee and write some Coffee — this won’t be long. As some girl named Brittany so famously said, “Oops, I think I repeated a previous mistake!” I pulled over for a one-hour nap and woke up 4 hours later just south of

By Billy Rainford Welcome to another Monday Morning Coffee. This column is where we post up results from around the world where Canadians are competing and it’s also where I like to spout off on some opinion stuff and spin a yarn or two. Let’s start off as far away from Canada as you can get, geographically: Australian Supercross AUS-X Open – Round 6 Sydney SX1 OVERALL Rider Race 1

By Billy Rainford So, anything interesting happen over the weekend? Wow, the Rockstar Triple Crown Supercross Series was back with a bang! After what seemed like an eternity away from racing up here in Canada, we were all back in action at the new Videotron Centre in Quebec City. As we knew they would, the amateur riders supported this event well and we had full gates in all of the

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Welcome to another Monday Morning Coffee here at Direct Motocross. I was actually away from races for the 2nd weekend in a row — that doesn’t happen very often. I spent a big part of my weekend cleaning out my office here at DMX World HQ. I found an awful lot of rechargeable batteries for my cameras, flashes, recording devices, and action cameras. It wasn’t a huge

By Billy Rainford RED BULL STRAIGHT RHYTHM Was I dreaming or did I actually watch Ryan Dungey and Ryan Villopoto go head-to-head on 250 2-strokes on Saturday night? Red Bull Straight Rhythm embraced the fact that it’s a one-off event that is completely for the fans and put everyone on 2-stroke bikes. I’m always expecting to see more people in the stands at this event, but the fact that we

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning, everyone. I hope your weekend was long and your coffee is hot. It seems like every track that has a Facebook page is announcing their closure for the season. Yes, it’s that time of year when, here in Canada, we put away the dirt bikes and sharpen our skates and tape our sticks. Well, that’s unless you plan on racing some Supercross and Arenacross!

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Well, once a year the Monday Morning Coffee comes from some exotic part of the world following the annual trip to the MXON. This year, I’m typing from a hotel in Elkhart, Indiana. Not quite the same as sitting in the same castle where Winston Churchill and the allies sat and made key decisions on the invasion at Normandy, but still… First off, thank you to Team
