Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Hello and welcome to Championship Monday. The inaugural Canada AX Tour has come and gone and we have crowned champions in all three Pro classes. But guess what? It was the same rider who won all three! Monster Energy Thor Kawasaki’s #100 (or should I say, #1?) Jacob Hayes came to Canada for his first time and did what was expected of him…win. In

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford I hope everyone made it through Halloween Weekend safely. We got pretty lucky here in southwestern Ontario, weather-wise. The temperature was in the upper teens Sunday and so people were out riding where they could. Here’s a look at some results from the weekend: 2015 Australian Supercross Championship Round 3 – Adelaide, SA SX1: 1. DANIEL REARDON 2. BRETT METCALFE 3. MATT MOSS 4.

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Happy Thanksgiving, Canada. In a country that is famously hockey mad, watching the Toronto Blue Jays stay alive last night pulled this massive country together in a way that hasn’t happened since the Jays won back to back World Series Championships in 1992-93. I’m not a baseball fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I found myself sitting around after a fantastic turkey

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Good morning. I have to come clean – I’m actually drinking tea for this week’s Monday Morning Coffee. I don’t think it should have much affect on the content of the column, but we’ll see. I want to start with a short story (Ya, right, Rainford!) that took place Saturday night here in London, Ontario. There’s an old Canadian punk rock band called the

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Welcome to a very busy Monday Morning Coffee here at Direct Motocross. Now I know what it’s like to be from a city that hosts one of our major moto events…it feels really good! Waking up in my own bed and driving across the city to get to the London Agriplex for rounds 1 and 2 of the Monster Energy Canadian Arenacross Tour Presented

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Welcome to another work week. Actually, if you’re in the moto news biz, Mondays are a bit of a relief! I remember when I used to work in retail… I used to manage a running shop out in the Point Grey area of Vancouver, BC.

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford There goes one of the last weekends of the summer. It’s been years since I’ve been in school, but I still equate September with going back to class. For that reason, I find August 31st pretty depressing. It’s getting dark earlier, there are yellow-jacket wasps everywhere, and the Pro outdoor motocross series are all but finished. I remember heading to class in one of

Monday Morning Coffee By Billy Rainford Welp, that looks like it may have been the final Pro weekend of the outdoor season right there. The Rockstar Energy MX Nationals ended last week at Walton Raceway and the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships just wrapped-up their 12-round series for the second year at the Ironman MX track in Crawfordsville, Indiana. First off, here’s a look at Saturday’s results: As I’m sure
