By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning. It’s a holiday for a lot of you out there. Of course, what that means is you’re spending it somewhere at the races or at a practice track. That’s just how it goes. I remember my family always looking back over the year and realizing we’d just spent Easter, Victoria Day, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, Halloween, and sometimes even Remembrance

Another Monday pops up out of nowhere. Are there more Mondays in the week than any other day? Probably not, but it sure feels that way. As I sit here in the DMX office, I made the mistake of looking over my right shoulder and can’t help but notice that there are some light snowflakes in the air right now. No, nothing is going to accumulate, but I think we’re

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Let’s make this one a double shot of espresso! We pulled into the driveway just after 5:00am after making our way home from Nashville, Tennessee, making that a long drive through the night, but not the ultra-marathon that is a drive home from California. Nothing I can’t handle. Let me say this: Nashville is a stop on the Monster Energy AMA Supercross circuit that belongs on the

By Billy Rainford Hey, guess what happened since the last Monday Morning Coffee column. It’s spring! It’s almost time to get Mondays started with a coffee outside on the front porch while I think about random stories that may or may not entertain DMX readers.We’re not quite there yet, but we’re close. I was fortunate enough to spend a large portion of this past winter in warm climates – California

By Billy Rainford Another Monday Morning has rolled around. However, this time I find myself at my own desk, in my own office, in my own house, looking out my own window at my own grass. That’s right…grass! It looks like we’ve made it through another winter season here in my area of Canada. The extended forecast is showing nothing but above-zero temperatures for the foreseeable future. In fact, we’re

By Billy Rainford What a great road trip this one has been. I’m currently staying at my good friend Brendan’s beautiful place in Palm Coast, Florida, about 30-35 minutes straight north of Daytona on I-95. Brendan has been in the motocross game a pretty long time. In fact, he still rips on a track on a 450! He and his brother, Justin, started Loudmouth Intakes a bunch of years back

By Billy Rainford Welcome to a Monday Morning Coffee from the deep south. Well, truthfully, I’m only about 1 1/2 hours south of Atlanta, Georgia, at Matt Walker‘s MX Compound in Culloden, GA. It’s funny how Tennessee feels deeper south than Atlanta, and Atlanta feels deeper south than Daytona. Maybe I just don’t get geography… Anyway, I’m meandering my way south to Brendan from Loudmouth Intakes and Legend Int’l fame

By Billy Rainford Hello and welcome to a stormy Monday Morning from DMX World HQ. I made it over to Ford Field in downtown Detroit, Michigan, for Round 8 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series Saturday night. Check out some of these fast facts and stats from Detroit: – the first 450SX was held at the Pontiac Silverdome in 1976 and Marty Smith won the 450 class. -the first

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford I tried Friday. I tried Saturday. I tried again on Sunday, but I just wasn’t well enough to hop in the van and make the 2-hour drive to downtown Toronto for the Toronto Motorcycle Show. My old buddy Pete was even going to ride shotgun for this one. Pete and I haven’t been on a roadtrip together in a long time. One of our better ones was

By Billy Rainford Another Monday has reared its ugly head. You should be at work or school! Here in my neck of the woods, we’ve made it out of that Polar Vortex where the temperature dipped below -20C and now we’re being tricked into thinking winter is over with this double-digit weather today. It’s really nice but don’t put your shovels or snow scrapers away just yet. We’re just entering
