Monday Morning Coffee | David Gingras – Partzilla PRMX at SOBMX

By Billy Rainford Something a little different this week for Monday Morning Coffee. I’m on my way home from a week at the 2022 Thor Mini O’s Presented by Pro Circuit. I headed over to I-95 so I could drop in on the Partzilla PRMX team and see how everything is going for the upcoming Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series. Unfortunately, our 2 Canadian riders (Preston Masciangelo – wrists, and

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford This time next week and we’ll be at the biggest motocross race of the year – the 2022 Thor Mini O’s Presented by Pro Circuit at Gatorback Cycle Park near Gainesville, Florida. This race has always been a big one but it’s taken on a life of its own the past few years. With parking now spreading into the areas even farther off the property, it’s hard

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Good Monday morning, everyone. It’s time for me to do something I’ve been known to do on many occasions…scour results from an event looking for Canadians. That’s what I’m going to do for the Dubya World Vet Championships that just took place at Glen Helen Raceway out in the 909 of Riverside, California. Here goes: *Not all motos were shown as of this posting #619 Bryce Cook

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford We’ve reached the end of another Canadian Triple Crown Series season. How do you think things went? No, we didn’t have the riders from south of the border on teams like we normally see up here, but that’s just because of the barriers to entry at the border that were still in effect. 2023 should see things get back to normal, right? I’m sure not going to

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope you’re all reading this during a little downtime from visiting with your family and/or other people who are important in your life. Emily and I did the family visits Saturday and Sunday that took us from Waterloo to Burlington and now back home in London in perfect Fall weather. The weather is perfect again today to get out and do some two-wheel

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Wow, I gained an entire day! I went through all of yesterday thinking it was Monday. I guess because we raced Friday and Saturday this past weekend I went into autopilot and figured it was Saturday and Sunday. I felt guilty about not doing a Monday Morning Coffee column yesterday because I went straight to a race recap article (Read it HERE) and now here I am

Monday Morning Coffee | What Happened at the 2022 MXON?

By Billy Rainford Well, this Monday Morning Coffee finds me in a Starbucks in Battle Creek, Michigan. It feels appropriate, since this weekend at the 2022 MXON was definitely a battle! Every year, we head into these things with the same thought: “We have the strongest team every assembled this time!” And to be honest, the team usually is great and we’ve got the best riders possible to represent the

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Wow, I can still barely walk down stairs and I haven’t been on a Sur-Ron electric motorcycle in 2 days! By almost all standards, I cycle a lot, but it’s apparently still not enough to have me ready for the standing and sitting of “racing” a dirt bike. Nothing beats seat time. By now, you’ve probably seen some photos and/or video from the fun we had on

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford I got to spend the weekend in Alberta to check out the 8th round of the 2022 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship at the Red Bull Outliers. The main race was on Sunday in the Badlands 45 minutes outside of Brooks, but they put on a nice display at Olympic Plaza in downtown Calgary on Saturday. Saturday acted as a qualifier for Sunday but its main purpose

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning, everyone. I’m going off on a non-moto tangent here and telling my story about a bicycle race I did on Sunday, so just know that going in. After a summer of travel and moto, I did something different this past weekend. My old triathlon buddy, Shawn Reeder, and I entered an 8-hour, 2-person gravel race relay just north of the town of Stratford in
