Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hey, guess what? We got more snow last night here in London, Ontario. Enough so that I should really be out there taking care of it. I just checked the temperature and it’s 2C out there. If you’re in an area that gets snow, you know what that means…it is not going to be a fun shovel. My back already hurts, just thinking about it. Maybe it’ll

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Happy Family Day, everyone. I’m a little behind schedule this week, as we’ve got a ton of stuff planned for content this week and everything seems to be happening at once this morning. So, what did you think about the 2007 Orlando replica track on Saturday night? I think it’s a great idea to bring some nostalgia to the sport. It gave Supercross two ways to promote

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford You know you’re getting old when… So, last night was Superbowl #55 from Tampa Bay. I’m pretty sure you already knew that. I’ll admit it right off the top that this was the only football game I watched all year. We don’t have cable at our place and I’m not a big enough fan to try and find games online during the regular season, but I did

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Another Monday raises its ugly head. Can you even really tell what day it is…or month, for that matter?! As we continue to hunker down in or close to our homes, fortunately, Supercross has been racing. It’s been a shining light in a dark time, for sure. We were at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN for the first of 3 rounds on Saturday night. The racing

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Nope, I’m not going there this morning. If you want to read my point of view on the H3 situation you can read it HERE in my “Brainstorm” column from Sunday. I’m already thinking about Indy! I do want to start out this week by wishing Mike ‘Too Tall’ Bell‘s family and friends my deepest condolences. Mike was one of the racers who I looked up to,

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Welcome to the Monday we’ve all been waiting for for quite some time – the one after Round 1 of Monster Energy AMA Supercross! How good did that feel to be watching Supercross again?! That was a rhetorical question – I know exactly how it felt…GREAT! Although it really sucks that I’m not going to be at the races, physically, at least we’re going racing and I’m

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Welcome to another Monday Morning Coffee. Does anyone else have a hard time getting back to reality right after the Christmas/New Year’s break? There’s a large part of me that wants to continue celebrating the Holiday Season for a little while longer. Fortunately, we finally had some racing to watch and we’re less than a week from SUPERCROSS! With so much other stuff going on in the

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Hello and welcome to Monday Morning Coffee #1 of 2021. Happy New Year. I’d like to say, “Let’s all just forget about what happened in 2020,” but I don’t think we should put that much pressure on the New Year. It’s a big ask to have things immediately go back to normal. It’s just not going to happen. It was a very strange year for us, wasn’t

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Welcome to what is usually my favourite non-moto week of the year – the week between Christmas and New Year’s. It’s always a week at home with my family that I spend visiting close friends and their families. I really enjoy driving around to different homes to visit and have some Christmas “cheer” with buddies and their parents who had to put up with me as a

Monday Morning Coffee

By Billy Rainford Welcome to the last Monday Morning Coffee before Christmas! It’s green and warm enough to go for a comfortable ride here in London, Ontario, today. Jeff McConkey‘s Yamaha YZ250 is already winterized and sleeping in the garage, so I guess my riding will be of the non-powered type today. We seem to be in a bit of a holding pattern here in Canadian Motocross. With so many
