Monday Morning Coffee | Walton One Notes

By Billy Rainford What a weekend of racing that was at Walton Raceway! Walton One is in the books. I’ll move to point form to hit as many things as I can from this past few days. They’ve really got the facility looking nice. The newer pavilion building with the addition up front is really nice. We stood in there and watched some AMA Pro Motocross action while eating some

Monday “Morning” Coffee

By Billy Rainford Things are running late here on this Victoria Day long weekend. I’m not sure if you’re the type of person who doesn’t care what time it is when you drink coffee, but if this is too late, grab yourself a big glass of milk and let’s see how the racing went across Canada this weekend.

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford OK, so, I’m having a tough time adjusting to this BC time zone. It’s easy to fall into a pattern and I’m not getting my routine sorted out being 3 hours behind my usual time in the Eastern Zone. Having said that, I’m sorry about my tardiness with this MMC column. I always seem to end up staying up late like I would back at home and

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Good morning from Pendelton, Oregon. I didn’t even know my route from Salt Lake City, UT to Kamloops, BC was going to take me through Oregon, but here I am. I managed to take a few minutes out of the drive and go for a MTB ride in Boise, Idaho, late yesterday. I spent most of the day driving through a blinding snowstorm through the mountains, so

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford As another Monday rolls around my life is about to get flipped-turned upside down, to quote the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. But I”m not sure we’re allowed to do that these days… On Tuesday I’ll start making my way to Salt Lake City for the final round of the 2022 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series. I actually lived in SLC for about 7 months back in

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Having not been at a Supercross the past couple weekends, I didn’t really have a lot of content for my past two Monday Morning Coffee columns. However, I don’t even know where to start this week! I think it’s pretty safe to say that the past 3 days contained more moto content than any I’ve had in the past…many, many years. Let me clarify. Sure, I was

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend. It looks like the only decent opportunity to get out and ride was Sunday and I missed it. The sun was out around here but it was definitely not warm. It looks like spring will arrive later this week and then we should get things rolling here where I am in southwestern Ontario. Don’t forget, the groundhog told us spring

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Man, it feels weird to be home two weekends in a row! I really don’t even know what to do with myself on these “rest” days. It’s important to have a healthy work/life balance (as the kids would say). However, for me, the balance part is a little grey. I love my work! Going to the races and seeing all of you isn’t something I need a

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford The big news for me this past weekend was that my old friend and guy who was at every motocross race I ever did, Cary Hitchen, picked up a KTM 250 SX 2-stroke on Sunday. Cary is one of my oldest friends and he made the early-morning trips with my family and me nearly every weekend throughout the spring, summer, and fall in the 1980’s. I’m going

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford So, I woke up to a snowstorm this morning. In like a lamb out like a lion, I guess. We hit 20C here a couple weeks ago and it was enough for us to turn our outside water on and kick the dirt bike over in the shed. It was a big day. Now I sit here as the snow falls and actually starts to accumulate! However,
