By Billy Rainford Welcome to the Monday after the Storm! Whew, that was a wild one out in Anaheim! The 250 main has people divided as much as the American political landscape does. I’m not sure if either is healthy, but they’ve both sure got people talking. I’m not here to discuss the political situation, so let’s quickly forget I even mentioned it and focus on the Supercross racing. The

By Billy Rainford Good morning from another strange weather situation in Southwestern Ontario. Here in London we just got hit by record-breaking rainfall…in January! Yes, it’s normally snow at this time of year, but we’ve been getting some really strange weather this season. It’s going up to 8 degrees Celsius tomorrow and we just had so much rain that the Thames River has overflowed its banks farther than I’ve ever

By Billy Rainford We made it! The off season is behind us and we’re full steam ahead into the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross season. In case you were under a rock all weekend, here are the 250 and 450 main recaps from A1 to get you up to speed: 250 Mini McThoughts: 1 32 Justin Cooper YAM Anyone who is really surprised by this win hasn’t been paying attention

By Billy Rainford Well, did you make it through the Holidays? Almost? Ya, me too. I think I forgot that this NYE we’ll be ringing in an entirely new decade. How did your teens go? We’re heading into the “roaring 20’s” next, and here’s hoping things go well for you and everyone you care about. I think I learned more this past decade than all the rest put together. I

By Billy Rainford Yep, it’s the last Monday Morning Coffee before Christmas 2019 lands squarely in our laps. Let me start out by saying, no matter what or how you celebrate, Happy Holidays to you and your families. I always talk about how I can remember actually heading out a ripping up our practice track here in London on New Year’s Day way back in 1985 because there wasn’t any

By Billy Rainford Here we go into another week in the Holiday Season. I don’t care what it is you celebrate or how you do it, December is a pretty cool month. Aside from all the good feelings that float around freely this month, we’ve got a year to wrap up and another to usher in. There’s a lot to talk and speculate about. I’ve been dragging my feet a

By Billy Rainford It feels good to be sitting at home having my Monday Morning Coffee. For about 20-30 seconds last Sunday night I wasn’t sure I’d ever be sitting at home again! Yes, that’s being somewhat melodramatic, but I have a story to tell. After the Thor Mini O’s Presented by Pro Circuit finished last Saturday, I spent another night at Brianna Millsaps and David Doyle‘s place (thanks for

By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning. Do you want the good news or the bad news first? Let’s start with the good stuff and build up to what is quickly becoming one of my weirdest travel stories yet. I’m sitting in a Denny’s just west of Tallahassee, Florida, (Midway, Fla. to be exact) right now. No, this isn’t really by choice, but I may be getting very familiar with this

By Billy Rainford I hope everyone had a great weekend. We’re in the middle of our off season, but that doesn’t mean there ins’t anything going on. Quite the opposite, in fact. The big new this past week was Team Canada at the FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Portugal. I’ll admit that although I realize this race is a massive test of rider and machine, I don’t usually

By Billy Rainford If you were to look out my office window this morning, you’d be looking forward to a trip to the Mini O’s in Gainesville, Florida, as much as I am! It’s snowing those really small snowflakes and they’re coming down sideways in the strong north wind. The Canada Flag on Bob’s front lawn across the street is being held out straight as if it knows it’s November
