Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Photos by 🌊 This Monday Morning Coffee is coming to you from the Pacific Time in Ocean Beach, California. “OB” is a beach town next to San Diego and we love it here. If you’ve ever been to the coast of Southern California, you know what it’s like. Most places are completely white-washed and without flavour. It’s little pockets of beach life like OB and Venice Beach

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford I’m sitting here in -8C drinking my first cup of Monday Morning Coffee of 2022. It’s a pretty big Monday because it means I’m supposed to be loading up the DMX Van for another trip south and west for some Monster Energy AMA Supercross! And I will be, but it’s been a really strange lead up to this departure. It seems I managed to pick up a

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Welcome to the last Monday Morning Coffee before Christmas. Emily and I made our last trip down to my buddy’s restaurant before Christmas, so I’m a little behind on my coffee ramblings this morning. I think, since we’ve got the LRX Alberta Arenacross Championships to talk about in more detail later, I’ll spin a little yarn this week, if you don’t mind. I’m going to tell this

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello from a sunny and 7C day in London. Emily and I were actually able to get out for a nice cycle yesterday and it looks like we’ll take advantage and head out again today. When I looked ahead at the forecast, my plan was to put the snow tires on Em’s car on one of these nicer December days, but it seems we’re too busy getting

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello and welcome to another Monday Morning Coffee to start the week. Now that the Mini O’s are done, we find ourselves heading straight for the Christmas/Holiday break before we hit the Monster Energy AMA Supercross season in full stride. It looks like we’re going to have a few Canadians either competing in the entire series or doing a few races in 2022. Let’s have a look

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Man, it feels good to be on the road and sitting in a Starbucks working on Monday Morning Coffee from parts unknown! Actually, I know where I am. I’m in Florence, South Carolina, on my way to see Julien Perrier and his PRMX Partzilla Kawasaki Supercross team in action over at South of the Border. I could have made it there last night, but I’m afraid of

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford This is my first Monday at home at my office desk in a few weeks. As much fun as it is traveling to races and seeing great action, it always feels good to be home for a while. Of course, it never takes long to get the travel bug again. Fortunately, I won’t have to wait very long until I’m back on the move. We’re heading in

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford So, it’s after 5pm here in Mantova, Italy. This time change is really something. Carl Bastedo, Dylan Wright, and I just got back to the hotel from a late lunch. I sat down at my laptop and looked at the clock. Then I did the math and realized that it was only 11am back in Eastern time, leaving me an hour to put a few thoughts down

Monday “Morning” Coffee

By Billy Rainford *technical difficulties at my sister’s place in Kamloops this morning. Afternoon coffee? Welcome to a very rare Monday. Over the weekend we had Shelby Turner become the 5-time Endurocross Champion and Dylan Wright finished higher in an MXGP race than anyone has done in many, many years, taking 9th in Italy. Shelby was in Denver, Colorado, over the weekend and won the Women’s class at the final

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello again from Kamloops, BC. I’m still out here looking after my mom while my sister take a little holiday. That meant it was pretty early to be up on a Sunday morning to watch the MXGP of Trentino in Italy. I’m not sure if you heard, but Dylan Wright is over there and racing… We posted the race schedule and time difference to Ontario, thinking that
